I’m very excited to be joining Seattle food bloggers for Will Bake for Food.

The event will take place on November 12th.  Please click on the link to find out more information – there might  still be time for you to join and participate.  If not, be sure to stop by and purchase freshly baked goodies and donate canned goods!  
I never made a secret out of the fact that I’m not really a baker.  Sure, I can follow a recipe, more often than not, quite successfully.  But in general, I prefer to eat baked goods rather than make them myself.  Yesterday, however, I received a bit of encouragement and appreciation for my baking skills.  Leading a team of recruits in Iron Chef competition, we whipped together a Pear, Apple and Berry crumble that took first place!  It was delicious, and in the words of one of the students “smelled like Christmas.”
So, I plan to ride in my baking glory, at least through next Saturday.  What will I bake for the sale?  Stay tuned to find out!
