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 …

 

Lemon Lovin’

lemonade from cooksillustrated.com
Pink or yellow, sweet or sour, fresh or frozen: it doesn’t matter how you spin it, lemonade and summertime go hand-in-hand. I remember sitting at the end of my driveway selling lemonade from a cooler, arguing with my sister about who gets to collect the cash. I was about seven years old and making anything over $10.00 a day was a fortune.

More Pancakes, Please!

chocolate chip pancakes from recipegirl.com
Chocolate chip pancakes were always my breakfast of choice when I was a kid. The thought of light and fluffy pancakes with sweet chocolate and warm syrup makes my mouth water. Any flavor pancakes, from banana to blueberry to lemon-ricotta, are a delicious breakfast treat.
But when I eventually roll out of bed on Saturday morning, pancakes often seem like a hassle to prepare. So instead of letting the laziness take over and reaching for the cereal box, this little gadget will solve any pancake problems you might have.

Garlic Gone Wild

Is there any such thing as too much garlic? Some would say yes, and I used to be the first to agree. But over the past couple of years I stopped caring about my fresh breath and started indulging in the delicious flavor whenever possible.

When I think of my favorite fully garlic-loaded food my mother’s caesar salad is the first thing that comes to mind. Her homemade dressing isn’t creamy like the typical caesar dressing you’re probably used to. Instead, it’s olive oil based with lots of lemon juice and A LOT of fresh garlic. She even tosses …

 

Birthday Cake Pops

cake push up pops from nycake.com
It’s my birthday so cake I will eat! In honor of my own big day a cake-gadget had to be in order. Even though turning twenty three isn’t a major milestone like turning twenty one or twenty five, as my father reminded me this morning when he called to wish me a happy day, I still think it’s appropriate to talk about cake today.
I found the cutest little gadget that is perfect for a birthday at any age. Similar to the cake-pop maker that I blogged about many Thursdays ago, the Cake Push Up Tubes …

 

wicked waffles

One thing I love about the weekends is putting the cereal aside until Monday and indulging in some real stick-to-your-ribs kind of breakfast. Chocolate chip pancakes used to be my Saturday usual, but these days anything from omelets with toast and home fries to french toast doused in syrup and powered sugar are fine by me.
When I studied abroad last year I did a bit of traveling through Europe. I ended up spending a weekend in Brussels and the most memorable part were the waffles.

Yummy Yogurt

Soy yogurt from fatfreevegan.com
The latest trend in yogurt has been showing up everywhere over the past few years, from grocery stores to coffee shops, convenient stores and more. At first I was skeptical. The plain, sugar-free flavor of greek style yogurt was boring and bland compared to the fruity flavors of Yoplait‘s apple turnover and boston-cream-pie-delights that I was used to.
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.
Vanilla Chobani
The “fruit on the bottom” makes it all worthwhile with flavors like peach …
