They hope the weather will be perfect, not to hot and not to cold. They hope Heartbreak Hill won’t get the best of them and that they cross the finish line with everyone cheering them. Along the way on the sides of the road, many people will be waiting to cheer on the runners mile by mile. It is what we do each Patriot’s …
Every holiday season my family asks me to bake “my” apple pie. I never thought it was anything spectacular because the grocery store down the street sold the same pie with neater lattice tops.

But soon enough, greek yogurt worked it’s way into my heart and is now one of my most desired snacks. Chobani is definitely my brand of choice.
The “fruit on the bottom” makes it all worthwhile with flavors like peach …
Boston Bakes has grown from our first year with 42 participants primarily in the Boston area to almost 300 participants in over 90 communities in Massachusetts twelve years later. What started as a small event has turned into a full time project where we work hard year round. We have a Facebook page, we tweet and of course blog!
Now we kick off our efforts for 2012! Who will participate? What desserts will they serve? You will have to visit our website, Facebook and follow our tweets to find out!
