And boy have I go a lot to share with you!
First, the Food Blogger Bake Sale this past Saturday.
What a blast!

It was so fun to meet so many San Diego food bloggers. I had been looking forward to meeting all the talented people behind the blogs on the bake sale round up.
I made some super yummy Coconut Cupcakes with toasted coconut cream cheese frosting. Get ready for that recipe soon. I packed my cupcakes in the morning and headed out to the bake sale spot, Great News in PB. BTW, you want a Great News in your town. Write to your representative. Phone the president. Beg for one. You'll be happy you did. It's that awesome.
I got to the bake sale nice and early to help set up. But by the time I got there, there was already a flurry of work going on. I put my goodies down on the table and ran back to my car for the camera. By the time I got back someone had already set up my cupcakes!
Isn't that a lovely cupcake stand? I was so thrilled to have my treats so beautifully displayed!
Not long after I arrived, most of the folks showed up to get their food set up.
I was lucky to have Kelsey from Happyolks set up next to me. Super nice chick. Hope those finals went well!
I also had the pleasure of meeting Leanne from Three Dog Kitchen (who's tiramisu was AWESOME. We plowed through it last night), Kathy from Panini Happy, Kelly from Sass and Veracity (who offered some blog help, which I will be tapping into soon!), Kim from Liv Life Too, Lydie from The English Pantry, Heather and her sis from Bake My Day, Lisa from The Gonzo Gourmet, Jenny from The Vintage Sugarcube, Lori from Recipe Girl (finally) and of course, Marie, our trusty organizer from Meandering Eats... just to name a few! hehe
We also had a special guest, Jenny Flake from Picky-Palate.
Remember when we first met?
It was nice seeing her again, here with Lori as well. What a special day!
With all these great desserts it was no wonder the bake sale was a huge success!
We raised $1,700 for the Share our Strength Foundation. Not too shabby! Thanks again to Marie and Gaby for all the hard work. Again, recipe coming soon! Try and contain yourself! And now I'm getting ready for next year, how 'bout you?
