Magical Rice Krispie Treats and Will Bake for Food 2011

Filed under Home Cooking + Recipes

When I decided to participate in Will Bake for Food, a food blogger bake sale for charity, I immediately thought of bringing the most fun, whimsical treat in my repertoire.

In Tacoma, we have a fabulous bakery called Corina Bakery.  Every so often, they make these amped-up Rice Krispie treats that are a fruity twist on the classic ones. My husband loves them, and this last year, I went to buy him one for his birthday.  Alas, they hadn’t made any that day.  Determined not to disappoint, I recreated them at home.

Yes, they are a sugar bomb.

But who can resist sprinkles and colorful candy?  Kids and adults alike can’t keep their hands off of them.

Will Bake for Food was yesterday, and these were my most popular sellers by far. Read More »

Will Bake For Food 2011

Filed under Leftovers

What fun!  I’m going to be participating in Will Bake for Food, a food blogger bake sale to help fight hunger in our community!  The event is November 12, 2011 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. (or until we run out of goodies) at the University Heights Center in Seattle.

The blogger-run bake sale will be benefiting the Emergency Feeding Program, which provides food to families in the Seattle and King County area, with almost half of their meals going to children.

Last year was a great success, and here are the stats:

  • 1631 items sold by 54 bakers, including 108 cupcakes, 82 whoopie pies, 473 cookies, and 150 vanilla beans
  • 2 drink dudes who pulled 138 cups (55 coffee, 83 cider) in 90 minutes
  • 300 people through the door in under 2 hours
  • about 20 volunteers who made the event sing
  • 1903lbs of food and $946
So fabulous!  I’m looking forward to being part of such an awesome event.  I have some tasty recipes in mind that I will share in another post!
