Shop till You Drop and Raise Money for Breast Cancer!

Here at Bakes for Breast Cancer, one week out of the year, we raise money for breast cancer one sweet at a time with our event Boston Bakes for Breast Cancer which takes place each year during the week of Mother’s Day!  This year Boston Bakes for Breast Cancer takes place May 6-12, 2013!
We realized that many of our followers on Facebook and Twitter do not live in Massachusetts to enjoy the many sweets at restaurants, supermarkets, bakeries, ice cream and chocolate shops, and Food Trucks to name a few of the many places desserts are offered in our effort …

My Miami Adventure!

A beautiful wedding brought me to Miami, a wedding I could not miss!
I brought with me my computer; bought a Virgin Broadband to Go so I could continue working on Boston Bakes as if I was still in Boston. I worked every day I was there and took an hour or so to enjoy being outside by the pool just to get a little color.  I found myself alone at the pool because nobody who lived in the complex I was staying uses it.
I thank my wonderful volunteers for keeping up our Facebook and Twitter when I took my first …


You will have a treat at Treat Cupcake Bar for Boston Bakes!

I saw a tweet from Treat Cupcake Bar in Needham about how they were trying out recipes for their Boston Bakes for Breast Cancer cupcake and chose a white chocolate raspberry cupcake just for us.  We like tweets like that and then I saw the picture of the cupcake and wished that I was over at Treat Cupcake Bar tasting the cupcakes with them!
I posted the picture on the Boston Bakes for Breast Cancer Facebook page and it got over 1400 impressions.  I just had to find out more about the white chocolate raspberry cupcake.  I spoke to Adie Sprague, …


National and Daily Food Holidays!

Every day on Twitter, I post national and daily food holidays to share!  I never until this past summer knew such holidays existed and don’t know who is responsible for creating such holidays.  There are so many different sites to follow that some may share the same food holidays but some are different depending upon the source.

March 2 brings us 222 Participants for Boston Bakes for Breast Cancer! Another week in Boston Bakes!

It is only 8 am in the morning on March 2; I have not yet read the food sections in the Boston Globe and Boston Herald but have already checked my emails and have many to read, answer and write. I have a long list of calls to make and many things to follow through for many people who need something that I have.  There are just not enough hours in the day to get everything done but somehow it all happens. We try to get it all done!

Pistachio Pudding Dessert! A Great and Easy Recipe!

Fund raising for breast cancer has been a wonderful experience but it is not only about the money we raise for Boston Bakes for Breast Cancer but the wonderful people we get to meet that we would not have met otherwise.
We might never meet in person but through Facebook, Twitter and e-mails we meet new friends, some very special people who come into our life because we share a cause important to both of us, breast cancer.
