In my Friday post I wrote about the amazing Bake It Happen fundraising campaign for Breast Cancer Research. It is simple- just head on over to the Bake It Happen website: http://www.bakeithappen.net and sign up. Once you have signed up there are 3 simple steps to help raise money for such an incredible cause.

1. BAKE IT-  You will receive three delicious recipes- Judy’s Pumpkin Brownies, Judy’s Earthquake Cookies and Judy’s Bottom Cupcakes. Have fun baking them, they are delicious!

2. SHARE IT- Package up your baked goods and spread the love AND word with everyone, everywhere!

3. WIN IT- Post to social media about all of your Bake It Happen fun and you could win an iPad Mini or Baked by Melissa Mini of the Month Club.

And the BEST thing about sharing all this wonderful baked goodness is that it is raising awareness and funds for Breast Cancer Research!

Please consider signing up today and helping out this fun and worthy campaign.

My youngest daughter and I had a blast making the recipes this weekend. We shopped for ingredients, cranked up the tunes, danced around the kitchen and bonded over baking. Our apartment smelled amazing. We decided to share our treats with fellow neighbors and then the girls took more goodies to school today to spoil their teachers. Send in a request and maybe our next batch will arrive on your doorstep =)

Here are a few pics from our baking adventure!

This weekend we have a wonderful reason to bake some delicious treats. No, it is not a holiday- although, it IS in Canada- Happy Thanksgiving! It IS October and that means that it is breast cancer awareness month. Last year the amazing Shari Brooks from My Judy The Foodie (a blog that honors the memory of Shari’s amazing mother who was a wonderful cook, baker and mom) started a campaign called Bake It Happen that combines the joy of baking and sharing good cheer while raising money for breast cancer awareness and research. Bake It Happen is teaming up with the Pink Pumpkin Foundation (hard working local farmers) who will also donate a % of their fall pink pumpkin sales directly to help breast cancer research.

So… the girls and I will be getting busy in the kitchen this weekend baking and sampling this year’s Bake It Happen recipes: Judy’s Pumpkin Brownies, Judy’s Earthquake Cookies and Judy’s Black Bottom Cupcakes. On Monday I will share with you how our weekend of baking went and if you are lucky maybe you will even get a little care package in person =)

Here’s what I would LOVE for YOU to do this weekend- please spread the word about this amazing campaign. Head on over to the Bake It Happen website and sign up. By simply 1) baking, 2) uploading photos, sharing yummy treats and spreading the word you can support breast research and have a 3) chance to win an iPad or Baked By Melissa Mini of the Month Club Membership.

We are getting our bake on and you can too! Keep an eye out for a post on Monday where I will be sharing our kitchen exploits and of course the pics of our delicious treats!!

Happy Weekend!!
