Help Braeden get a Service Dog

Help Braeden get a Service Dog

There's is something special about the bond between a human and their animal friend. Even more special is a child with their first pet. The most special of all is the bond between a child and a service animal. The bond between the two is so strong and dependent.

Braeden is eight and has autism. He often has seizures and many doctors appointments which cause him stress and anxiousness. But Braeden calms down among animals. His family is hoping a service dog will help him to become more independent and build self confidence. A young service dog will grow with him through his teen years.

Service dogs are not commonly seen for children with autism and definitely cost a lot of money. Braeden's family must raise $8,000. So far they are half way to that goal. To help reach the goal, Lucca Restaurant is helping the effort.

Spring Baking with Special Diets

Spring Baking with Special Diets

Megan Myers

Blueberry Coffee Cake

For me, spring entertaining means spring brunches. And spring brunches mean that I have to get my oven ready, because I love to get baking all the goodies that go with brunch. Not only do muffins have a place at the table, but so do biscuits, coffee cakes, and dessert cakes!

When you’re entertaining, it’s important to make sure every one of your guests has something yummy to eat. Here are my recommendations for special diet baking this spring!... Read More

Eat your veggies!

We’ve all heard it.

And most of us, who are parents, have said it more than a few times.

Why? Because our parents were right…veggies are good for you.

Today, we know so much more about the benefits that come from eating a rainbow of fresh veggies and fruits. Each color is created by a different set of micronutrients — all of which are needed to nourish our bodies and keep us healthy... Read More
