We might be only to be able to see white snow outside beyond our imaginations with icicles hanging off of houses and buildings everywhere. Temperatures so frigid you can’t imagine that you truly have to go out into it. Snow days galore that affected local business including many of our participants. Public transportation, traffic and parking are all major inconveniences right now. This winter is one for the history books.
The days are staying lighter a little longer and we all hope for winter’s end to come sooner rather than later. With spring comes the 16th Annual Boston Bakes for Breast …
There is a look that anyone who has successfully prepared a dessert wears when presenting his or her creation. It’s the smile of a toddler coming over to show you a particularly intricate Play Doh monster and it radiates a unique pride. Baking is fun because you are given a strict set of chemical and physical rules to which you must adhere, but you are working to create a product that is unique, beautiful, and tastes good to the largest array of taste buds you can.

I hope today is a wonderful Mother’s Day for all celebrating or for those remembering the special women in our lives who we lost but remain in our hearts and thoughts.
I started my fundraising in memory of my mother who lost her battle against breast cancer at the age of 44 in 1973. She is always with me. My dessert-oriented events were created because of her and with her in mind! My love of baking and cooking is because of my mother.
It is ever so rewarding that we kick of the first annual Rhode Island Bakes for Breast Cancer on …
Growing up the school year seemed to go on forever; but as an adult time flies very quickly! It takes a year to bring Boston Bakes to life and just a short week to enjoy the desserts that will help raise money for breast cancer research!

Time is going quickly and then Boston Bakes 2014 will be history!

Is it coincidence that Boston Bakes for Breast Cancer 2014 starts on Cinco de Mayo-a day to celebrate with food and drink? I don’t think so! So while you are celebrating the festivities of Cinco de Mayo with food and drink celebrate it with dessert as well! Visit a Boston Bakes for Breast Cancer participant, save room for dessert and help us raise money for breast cancer one sweet at a time!
Many of our participants have celebrations for Cinco de Mayo! Check out Jose’s Mexican Restaurant, Picante Mexican Grill, El Pelon Taqueria, and Viva Mexican Grill to name a few, …
It has always been our hope to expand and to go into new markets with our Bakes for Breast Cancer events! We are happy to announce the First Annual Rhode Island Bakes for Breast Cancer May 11-17!
After doing Boston Bakes for 15 years we are more than ready for the next step- doing an event outside of Massachusetts and we decided that doing a Bakes for Breast Cancer in the state of Rhode Island the beautiful Ocean State is where we want to go!
The wonderful people of Rhode Island are foodies and desserties at heart. They have a love for …
It is hard to imagine 15 years ago a new event was crated that crossed every socioeconomic demographics and let anyone and everyone help in the fight against breast cancer by simply buying a dessert! We called it Boston Bakes for Breast Cancer. It had a catchy ring to it even though if you say it five times fast it becomes a tongue twister.
Small things come in good packages and never could we have imagined how we would grow from 42 participants in our first year to last year over 300 participants in over 90 Massachusetts communities. Although our name …
Last Friday, I visited the Big Apple for a day trip. The options for good eats in NYC are endless – so many, that it would probably take me years to blog about all the delicious restaurants, bakeries, food trucks that I’ve tried and would like to try. For today’s post, I’ll share with you some of my favorite dessert stops in the concrete jungle. No cronut visit, unfortunately.
My favorite place to get the best red velvet cupcake with cream cheese frosting is Two Little Red Hens bakery on the Upper East Side. Yes, I truly think their red velvet reigns supreme …
