Boston Bakes is Number 1 in 2011!

Out of the blue on December 10, 2012 I received a call from a reporter at the Boston Herald who was writing an article in regard to charitable organizations and how much they gave to the cause they were raising money for.  She called to interview me because we gave much of what we received from our event to Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston to be used for breast cancer research.
I was interviewed over the phone and then was caught by surprise when she said we would like to have a photographer come over now and take your picture!   I …

Season’s Greetings 2012

I must say this every year but the fall flies so quickly by! Last I remember it was summer which led to Halloween, to Thanksgiving and now to Christmas and a New Year to shortly begin.
Last summer I planned a trip to see friends in Italy in November, friends I had not seen in countless years; it too has come and gone too quickly.  I am left with beautiful memories and dreams of returning sooner than later!
It has been an incredible year for Bakes for Breast Cancer, Boston Bake for Breast Cancer and our Bakes for Breast Cancer Bake Sale.  …
