A commercial break

I know you were expecting my 2nd New York post - and yes, that is coming...but I had to throw this in here for ALL SAN FRANCISCO BAY AREA READERS!!! (if you don't live in the SF Bay Area and read my blog - you can of course still read this, but it might just make you sad that you DON'T live in the SF Bay Area. Well you should feel sad that you don't anyway - but that's another story...)

If you live near San Francisco - come sample baked goods by your
FAVORITE food bloggers, this Saturday April 17th!!

This coming Saturday is the National Food Bloggers Bake Sale which is part of the Great American Bake Sale. Gaby Dalkin of What's Gaby Cooking came up with the wonderful idea to invite food bloggers from across the country to unite and support the cause by holding bake sales in their states. April 17th is that day! Check out her list of food bloggers hosting bake sales in various states across the country.

Money raised will go towards Share Our Strength’s efforts to end childhood hunger in America.

Does that picture get your attention? I think I'll be making (and selling)
the same flavors I made for Easter last week: lemon with lemon curd
buttercream and pistachio with pistachio buttercream

Anita Chu is generously hosting the San Francisco Bake Sale this Saturday at Omnivore Books in Noe Valley. Of course you know Anita from her award winning blog Dessert First and for her wonderful cookbooks. I feel so fortunate to call her a good friend and that combined with this wonderful cause will have me baking non-stop through the end of this week in order to help out on Saturday!

There are so many reasons you want to attend this event!
1) You can sample baked goods made by me AND by Anita AND by other local food bloggers!
2) Rose Levy Beranbaum will be speaking at Omnivore that day from 3-4pm
3) Omnivore is an all cookbooks bookstore. It's a fabulous place, and some of their books go back to the 1800's!
4) Any money you spend on baked goods will go to help end Childhood Hunger
