Cookies for a Cause

Even though I don’t need a reason to bake, I think this was a pretty good one: It was the National Food Bloggers’ Bake Sale, for which all of the money raised helps “Share Our Strength”,  which is an organization that helps end childhood hunger. I found out about the bake sale on this blog: Dessert First, and from there, you can find out more information about the charity. I made the Better Than Brownie cookies, so I will finally add that recipe to the site (follow the jump or go to the “recipes” page, found at the top of the screen.)

I had a lot of fun at the sale, even though I was there at the end, and didn’t get a chance to talk to the other bloggers/bakers. I did get a chance to hear the author of Cake Bible, and her newest book, Rose’s Heavenly Cakes, (among other cookbooks) talk about the cakes and baking and I got her signature in the book! I loved every minute of that!

I have many more pictures to share, so I will post them as a slide show.
