What Are You Doing May 21?

If you're around Milwaukee, you should definitely stop by Best Place at the Historic Pabst Brewery to check out the Cookies for Kids' Cancer bake sale and silent auction. There, local foodies, bloggers, chefs, bakers (really, anyone who wants to help out!) will be there, selling our homemade goods. Additionally, there will be a silent auction going on throughout the afternoon.

Cookies for Kids' Cancer is a nonprofit that two parents started to help raise money for their son's cancer by hosting one huge bake sale. Over the years, more and more bake sales throughout the country (and even in Canada, I believe) have been held by people who want to raise money for kids' cancer effective therapies.

Here are the details for the bake sale that is being held in Milwaukee:

WHEN: 1-4:00 p.m. Saturday, May 21

WHERE: Best Place, 901. W. Juneau Ave.

WHAT: Bake sale with tons of homemade goodies plus a silent auction

RSVP: If you're on Facebook, RSVP here. Or, just feel free to show up!

Now, just to whet your appetite, here is a sampling of what I'm going to be making for the bake sale:

  • Dark chocolate bark with nuts (maybe hazelnuts?) and dried fruits (I'm thinking cranberries, apricots and maybe something else?)

  • Indian-spiced rice treats. I've made these before, and they are SUPER tasty! The recipe calls for cardamon, cashews and golden raisins.

  • Coconut macroons. I've never made them before, but they're always delicious, and I think they'll go over well.

So what are you waiting for? Sounds like a pretty great event, right? You get to buy home-baked goods from people who really love to cook and bake all the while supporting a great cause. See you there!
