Pass the Plate. Share the Love. Cook for the Cure.
The thing I’ve loved most about blogging, aside from the wonderful friendships I’ve made, is the opportunity to bake for a greater good. I was recently invited by Sandra at Sweet Sensations to take part in a very special event. Sharon & Denise of Be Betsy, were inspired by Kitchenaid’s Cook for the Cure® to join the fight against breast cancer. They purchased a plate specially designed by Jacques Pepin. The plate is filled with cookies and literally passed from blogger to blogger. Each time the plate reaches a new destination, Kitchenaid donates $5 to Susan G. Komen for the Cure®. I am so proud and honored to be a part of this campaign.
I received these beautiful dipped chocolate sandwich cookies from Sandra at Sweet Sensations.
They were amazing! I literally polished off 2 of them before it struck me that I need to photograph them first! Many of you who visit here already know Sandra. I am in awe of her! She is a working mother who takes such good care of her family, while writing a beautiful blog full of wonderful recipes and fabulous ideas on how to host the perfect party and create a gorgeous tablescape. (All while nursing a torn tendon!) When you read about her, you will learn that she is a woman of great strength and courage. And I wonder if she knows what a great source of inspiration she is to me?! I am so happy to know her and I appreciate so much that she included me in this awesome event!
So. . . . . from Michigan to Maryland. Where are the cookies traveling to next??? . . . . . [Read more...]
