In a world where it seems that bad news is everywhere you turn, we sometimes have to look harder for the rays of sunshine. One of those beaming rays of light is Alex’s Lemonade Stand. Since its inception, Alex’s Lemonade Stand has raised over $80 million for childhood cancer, and has funded more than 450 research projects at 94 institutions. They also help families struggling with childhood cancer through a Travel Fund and an annual Educational Symposium.
Over the weekend, San Diego Food Bloggers were cooking with lemonade to support Alex’s Lemonade Stand. Check out their lemony recipes and make a difference. You can donate here to support the good folks at Alex’s Lemonade Stand.
My lemony recipe is this Roasted Grape Lemonade. Melissa’s Produce sent me Muscato grapes, along with lemons and limes to support this cause. These Muscato grapes are incredibly flavorful and aromatic. They are also commonly used for wine. You can find the full recipe here for my Roasted Grape Lemonade.
These aren’t your ordinary table grapes.
And this isn’t your ordinary lemonade.
And Alex’s Lemonade Stand isn’t your ordinary organization.
Stand up against childhood cancer and check out what the other San Diego Bloggers are creating with their lemons. Because when life gives you lemons, you must make lemonade, lemon bars, lemon cookies and everything else lemony good.
