In Brooklyn? Let me bake for you this weekend!

So last night I posted about a benefit I went to that raised money for pediatric cancer research, and a great giveaway I’m running courtesy of Glad chock full of $125 worth of baking supplies. I’m also holding my own bake sale this weekend to raise money for Cookies for Kids’ Cancer, and since I don’t live in a very high-traffic area I’m going to be delivering the goodies. So for your donation (100% of which will go to Cookies for Kids’ Cancer) you will get my amazing baked goods delivered right to your door! If you’re in Brooklyn you can not pass this up.

If the donation amounts look a little…generous, please remember that it’s for charity. And it’s coming right to you. Plus, Glad is matching the donations from bake sales in May (up to $225,000) so your donation could mean twice as much. Details on this charity and holding your own bake sale are in my previous post.

If you would like to buy any of the baked goods this weekend please email me. I will be taking payment through PayPal so that I’m not going to strangers’ houses laden with cash. There is a $10 minimum per order. Here’s what I’m offering, and anyone who knows me would attest to how awesome these are:


Guittard Chocolate Chip Cookies

2010-07-01 13.50.47

Made with semi-sweet Guittard chocolate discs, every bite of these hearty cookies is filled with chocolaty goodness. They’re made from a Jennifer Perillo recipe, which gives you an extra assurance that they’ll be delicious.


Rich & Gooey Brownies

2010-06-17 15.06.25

My brownies are legendary at school bake sales. Teachers try to sneak in early to buy up a bunch before the general public. Friends request them when they come over for lunch. And I’ve been known to eat more of them than I’ll admit publicly after everyone else has gone to bed – they’re impossible to resist!

With or without walnuts, your choice.

$25/double batch size (13x9x2)

$15/single batch size (9×9)

Buttery Cinnamon Buns

No-yeast cinnamon buns (1)

I only discovered this recipe a few days ago, but thanks again to Jennifer Perillo, I now have the ultimate cinnamon bun recipe. Comes complete with a generous side of cream cheese frosting.

$20/batch (12 medium-sized buns)


Sour Cream Chive Potato Bread

2010-03-02 22.29.17

My waistline really rues the day when I discovered this bread recipe from King Arthur Flour. Moist and flavorful, this bread is perfect on its own, although my husband has been known to make some pretty decadent sandwiches with it.

$9/loaf, two for $16

Rustic Sourdough Bread


I’ve been nursing my sourdough starter for about a month now and can’t get enough of this bread. Chewy and tangy, it’s from this King Arthur Flour recipe.

$8/loaf, two for $14

Banana Bread

There’s something to be said for simple, moist banana bread – no bells and whistles, just deliciousness. Walnuts optional.

$8/loaf, two for $14

Zucchini Bread

Nothing smells like zucchini bread: cinnamon and nutmeg mixed with zucchini combine for one of the most drool-worthy scents of all time. Walnuts optional.

$8/loaf, two for $14

So there you have it! All of you who’ve been commenting and tweeting about how much you’d like to taste my baked goods, if you’re in Brooklyn, time to put your money where your mouth is! Email me and we’ll work out a delivery time.

    Too bad we’re over in Queens, but just wanted to give you kudos on this wonderful project for such a worthy cause. Everything looks beyond delicious. Good luck with all your baking!!

    saw a little cancer patient at Roswell Park Cancer center where i work today with his little bald head and IV pole with all the Chemo and other meds hanging on it. He was talking to his nurse about his mom and sister and he was so innocent and sweet- it was hard not to cry. My heart goes out to these extraordinary kids and their families.

    First I would like to say – thank you so much for doing this! It takes a lot of time and effort to even organize yourself enough to bake all day and deliver the next. It was for a wonderful cause and I am sure it was very much appreciated.

    Second, WOW. That is all I can say. Well not really! I was fairly shy with my ordering – I know having it in my house means me eating it all so I wanted to do something small to show my support but I should have ordered BIG!

    The brownies were unbelievable, moist and chewy with just the right amount of crunch at the edges. Perfection.

    And the banana bread went over so well with everyone in my family – my 3 yr old loved the “banana pie” and wanted more each time I gave her a little bit. Soft, sweet and delicious!!

    Great job!!
