Autism Awareness Blog Hop 2020


I’d like to thank RJ Scott for inviting me to participate in her Autism Awareness Month Blog Hop!  It’s an honour to be able to partake in spreading some awareness in our wonderful community! The theme this year is food, and it’s so appropriate this year because we’re all in lockdown, or isolating during this global pandemic, and food is a current and constant thing we’re all facing. Cleaning and baking have proven to be therapeutic in helping folks feel productive. And yes, I’ve been baking!

I love all sweet foods, and so far I’ve baked banana bread and orange cake. Which is great, but then I eat it ALL so I’ll be the size of a house by the time this is all over LOL  The recipe I use for the orange cake is below!

Autism Fact:

Autism is a developmental disability. It’s a difference in how your brain works. Autistic people can have good mental health, or experience mental health problems, just like anyone else.
