San Diego Food Blogger Bake Sale!

7 Apr

Hello, hello?

Anyone out there?!

I know it’s been ages since I’ve posted anything on this little blog of mine! I really hope there are still some subscribers or readers out there to hear these words I have for you today!

As some of you know from my last post almost ten weeks ago, I have been absent from At The Patisserie because I have been out of the country. In fact, I am posting this with spotty internet connection from a rural town in the Northern Region of Ghana! Here’s the link to my journal blog if you’re curious!

But something very important has brought me back, even as I am here (about three weeks to go in Saboba)! It’s called the San Diego Food Blogger Bake Sale, and it’s something I am WAY excited for.

I need to tell you all about this fabulous event happening in happenin’ Pacific Beach, San Diego on the 28th of April at Great News! Discount Cookware and Cooking School, from 10am to 2pm. Yes, that is about 2 days after my plane touches down, but baking is one of the first things I would absolutely love to do as soon as I get back! It’s been a long (but awesome) nine weeks here, and I miss my mixing bowl and oven!

Here is why you should participate!

– One in five children in America struggles with hunger. The funds raised form this branch of the National Food Blogger Bake Sale will go to Share Our Strength to help combat childhood hunger in America!

– Deliciousness. Need I say more?

– Meet new people, socialize, and network with the food blogging community in San Diego

– Have fun experimenting in the kitchen

– Show off your culinary expertise

– Or just pick up some thoughtful treats for friends and family members!

Whether you want to contribute to this collection of tasty desserts or just stop by to sample and support, we would love to see you there! If you want to get more involved, or if you’re curious about more information, check out the website!

This branch was started by Gaby of What’s Gaby Cooking? And is headed this year by Marie of Meandering Eats. They have worked so hard on this even in the past years, and I am sure that with our contribution from San Diego this year, we can double the amount of donations raised from $25,000 to $50,000 nationwide!

If you feel called to add to this campaign, but don’t have the time (all of us get super busy sometimes!), there is also the option to donate directly online via this link! Click on the “DONATE” button to send support to the San Diego branch efforts. Every little bit counts! Together we could help a lot of hungry children! J If you’re in the San Diego area at the time, we would LOVE to see you there, and I would especially love to meet you all!

Love from Saboba, Ghana


P.S. More on what I am baking later! I want to make it really good, but I really only have one day to prep everything!

    If you invest more than 800 dollars, you aren’t guaranteed an excellent cleaning,
    but it is worth it. HEPA is an abbreviation to describe a ‘High Efficiency Particulate

    I wanted to come by and say that my family devoured your maple bacon cookies. The slight saltiness and bacon pieces made it their dinner… it was the only item I didn’t even have a chance to take a picture of!

      So glad you enjoyed the maple bacon cookies!

    I count myself lucky to have bought a bag of your delicious Maple Bacon Cookies from today’s San Diego Food Blogger Bake Sale. Any chance you would be willing to share the recipe? Thanks!

    • Ann May 1, 2012 at 10:00 pm #

      For sure! It makes me so happy that you liked them, really. Definitely coming up in future posts–keep an eye out!
