A couple of posts back I declared that it was time for me to chillax and bit and let my tendon heal. At that time I also indicated that there were a couple of things that I had to do and this is one of them. I am so honored to be a part of Pass the Plate Share the Love. KitchenAid’s Cook for the Cure® inspired the blog owners at BeBetsy to support the fight against breast cancer. They purchased a plate designed by Jacques Pepin and each time the plate is passed to another foodie KitchenAid makes a $5.00 donation to Susan G. Komen for the Cure®.
The plate was passed to me by Eileen at The Joy of Caking. They are pictured above. Eileen sent me some super chocolaty cookies decorated with pink sprinkles, and they were yummy! It took me longer than I anticipated to send the plate on it’s way, but it’s in the hands of the postal service right now. My dipped chocolate sandwich cookies have been sent to Anne, the super cool lady who blogs over at From My Sweetheart. We all know Anne as one of the sweetest foodie friends on the planet. Her recipes are always top notch and her pictures require napkins just to look at them. Not only are her pictures and recipes fantastic, you feel like you’re chatting with one of your closest friends when you read her blog. Thank you Anne for saying yes and I look forward to your creation.
I chose to gild some store-bought cookies with white and dark chocolate coating and then sprinkled them with pink pearls. This could have been the perfect occasion to get super fancy but I wanted to keep it simple for obvious reasons that you already know about.
Cancer can strike anyone at anytime and it doesn’t care which part of the body it inhabits. In the past two years I’ve lost a sister-in-law and brother-in-law to this disease. Right now another sister-in-law that has been in my family since I was four is now battling lung cancer. Over the years, Pauletta has not only been my sister-in-law, she’s been a mother figure, sister and best friend and I love her dearly. So I sent this simple plate of cookies to be enjoyed and to be a part of a movement to save lives and keep families and friends together.
