It's coming...

"What's coming?" you ask?

"The BIG ONE!!!" I say.

If you live in the San Francisco Bay Area your next comment will be "oh yah... 'The Big One'. We've been hearing about 'The Big One' ever since Loma Prieta..."

But you are incorrect, since of course I'm not talking about an earthquake and instead am talking about San Francisco's SECOND ANNUAL FOOD BLOGGERS BAKE SALE!!!  And it is truly going to be BIG!
Gotcha, right?

But yes, it's true.  Remember last year?  We're doing it again this year!

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. May 14th is that day! Check out her list of food bloggers hosting bake sales in various states across the country.
Vanilla bean salted caramels are already made and will be there for sale on Saturday!!
Money raised will go towards Share Our Strength’s efforts to end childhood hunger in America.

Anita, Shauna, Irvin and Annelies (and sorta, kinda, a little bit, moi) are generously hosting this year's sale during which we're hoping to DOUBLE our fundraising from last year, which was a whopping $1700!!  Yes, *just* 1 day of selling baked goods in San Francisco raised $1700 for Share Our Strength!
Join Us!!!
We have TWO locations this year.  At the last minute, I'm jumping in to manage the Kiehl's location and will be there at Kiehl's on Fillmore all day, Shauna and Annelies at 18 Reasons, and Anita and Irvin splitting time between both locations.

I'll have red velvet cupcakes for sale

And will also be selling cream puffs filled with vanilla custard

And if there's extra time - the "famous" chocolate chip cookies!

I'll be selling Vanilla Bean Salted Caramels, Red Velvet Cupcakes, Vanilla Custard filled Cream Puffs and (time permitting) those "famous" Chocolate Chip Cookies.  But don't forget - there will also be 20+ more bakers contributing to the 18 Reasons location and 10+ more bakers contributing to the Kiehl's location!  Come early to get the best pickings!!

The Deets:

Where: 18 Reasons, 593 Guerrero Street, San Francisco, CA 94110
When: Saturday May 14th, 2011 from 10am-6pm
Who: Shauna, Annelies and 20+ additional food bloggers/bakers! Anita and Irvin will split their time between here and:

Where: Kiehls, 2360 Fillmore Street, San Francisco, CA 94115-1813

It's for a wonderful cause... but in reality - we'd prefer to meet you in person! Come on out - it's gonna be big!!


  1. Good luck with the sale Lisa. The caramels look wonderful.

  2. Can I have one of the red velvets just for being pathetic and in pain?
