Archive for June, 2011

It’s been a busy few months (May is always one of my craziest months), but now that Kiddo is out of school, I can finally take a deep breath and… get back into the kitchen.  What better to do than jump in and do several days of baking?  Trust me, it’s for a good cause:  charity!  The adorable ladies of Run Around Betties are hosting a bake sale on Sunday, June 26th with all the proceeds going Share Our Strength which goes to ending childhood hunger in America.

And if you’ve been around for a while, you know I love a good excuse to get my sugar on.

I bet you want to know what put together for the sale, don’t you?

Starting from the left, going clockwise:

  • Chocolate Bundt Cake, soaked in Firelit Coffee Liqueur, with Firelit Chocolate Glaze
  • Carrot-Pecan Bundt Cake, with Raisins & Dates, with Cream Cheese Glaze
  • Oatmeal “Breakfast” Cookies (packed with lots of dried fruit, nuts and seeds)
  • Maker’s Mark Caramel Apple Pies
  • Banana Nut Omega-3 Bread (with walnuts, flax seed meal and spiced with cardamom)
  • Chocolate Zucchini Bread
  • Homemade Strawberry Jam
Not pictured:  handmade waffle cones in Chocolate, Peanut Butter, Brown Sugar & Cinnamon and Caramel.
So if any of these tempt you and you’re in the area, look for the girls in polka dots at 4380 Ventura Canyon in Sherman Oaks from 10 AM to 2 PM and get some goodies for a good cause!
