Happy Grandparent's Day!

Hello again, Readers!

     Today is National Grandparent's Day!  Grandparent's Day has been a national holiday in the United States since 1978.  Grandparent's Day was founded by Marian McQuade, a West Virginia housewife who served on the West Virginia Commission on Aging and the Nursing Home Licensing board.   Her goal for creating this holiday was to bring attention to elderly people in nursing homes and assisted living homes.  It's also meant to be an opportunity for younger generations to learn about family history, traditions, and heritage.
     Personally, when I visit my grandparents, I love going through my grandma's recipe box.  Seeing the handwritten recipe cards that have faded over time or have floury fingerprint smudges or yellowed newsprint from recipes cut out of magazines - it reminds me that there is more to family dinners than the food, there's history and tradition there.  The cakes from Euforia Confections are baked using family recipes that have been passed down through the generations.
     To all the grandparents, we hope you have a safe and happy Grandparent's Day!  We also hope you receive a delicious, gluten-free Euforia cake as a present.

Best regards,
Euforia Confections
