Patriots BCA game holds a special place in Bakes4BC volunteer’s heart

 
After four years cheering for the New England Patriots I still get the same excited, giddy, anxious feeling before every game. Each game is special and I feel lucky to be a part of every one. But, there is one game in October that holds a special place in my heart.
Every October the NFL goes pink to support breast cancer awareness. Each team dedicates one game during breast cancer awareness month to call attention to the disease in hopes of promoting early detection. The result of this game is a powerful visual. Players, coaches, stadium staff and cheerleaders dress in …

The inspirational people we meet!

The emails we get and stories we hear from those we don’t know are always very special to us. We had the opportunity to hear from a lovely young woman who wanted to bake goods for those who contacted her, deliver them to their offices so they could have a little bake sale. The funds she received would go to Bakes for Breast Cancer.
We had the chance to meet this lovely young woman and what an inspiration she was to us! We talked about ways she can get involved with our organization. In the near future you will hear more …

For My Mother

I could feel the vibrations through my pocket , the never ending buzz caused me to stop in my tracks . My voicemail begins to play , and the heaviness in my father’s voice fills the silence of the airy night. ” I have been trying to reach you , I know you must be working but I wanted to tell you that your mother was in the hospital earlier…call me when you get a chance” he said.
It was around 8:00 p.m. and I had just left work, I was walking to the train station to go home when I …

 

Fruity Tools

Two foods that I can never get enough of are fruits and veggies. Sweet and juicy, and without all the guilt that comes along with eating pizza and ice cream. But in our busy lives it’s often hard to squeeze in an apple a day when our stomachs are screaming for something more hearty, like a sub or sandwich.
Thankfully, these gadgets from Williams Sonoma will help you get your daily fix of nutrition without any hassle.
First, the OXO 3-in-1 avocado slicer is the perfect pitter and pre-per for your avocado halves. The sharp slicer cuts through the avocados skin. Next, …

 

Amish Friendship Bread

As much as I love to bake, I have never baked a loaf of bread before. The thought of yeast-proofing, dough-kneading, and dough-rising seemed pretty intimidating. Then on one fateful day, I came across the perfect opportunity to bake bread for the first time ever.
 
My friend recently passed the Amish Friendship Bread starter kit to me: about a cup-size amount of liquid batter stored inside a ziploc gallon bag, and a sheet of instructions. Similar to a chain letter, once a friend passes the bag to you, it’s your turn to add to it and then pass it on to more friends in …
