Mixed Plate: Will Bake for Food (and a good cause)

If you live in the Seattle area and haven't been completely inundated with #bake4food hashtag posts over Twitter, take note that Saturday November 20th, aka Tomorrow Morning, is the Will Bake For Food event, where local food bloggers are gathering at the University Congregational Church in the U-District to sell home-baked goods for the benefit of local charity, Northwest Harvest, which supplies goods to local food banks and programs in our area.

There are MANY AWESOME PEOPLE who are donating their time and baking efforts to supporting the fight against hunger. I was just lucky to be asked to join the Blogger Baking Brigade. It's also a food drive, so if you come, bring some canned foods and/or a monetary donation. NW Harvest has a list of things they're especially in need of, namely infant and baby items.

If you come, I would love to meet every one of you and thank you personally for helping to fight the Big Bad of hunger in America. What baked wares will I be offering? Well, have a sneak preview and see what I'll be setting out: Maple-Iced Sugar Cookies and Peanut Butter Chai Cookies.

Don't worry, I made more than four bags. And yes, they're all packaged like a Martha Stewart OCD Freakazoid because... that's just what I am. So come on out this Saturday, meet and greet the bloggers, get a wicked sugar high, and do it all in the name of a good cause. Hollaback, yo!

Much thanks goes out to the organizers of Will Bake for Food, "The Jennys" -- Jenny Miller of Rainy Day Gal and Jenny Richards of Purple House Dirt. Two fantastic gals who are seeking to change the world, one sugar-sprinkled day at a time. Also big thanks to Luke Burbank of the podcast Too Beautiful to  Live for giving Will Bake for Food a shoutout on his Nov 12th podcast. Download it on iTunes for free or listen on their website and you can hear him eating the bribe of whoopie pies and cookies I sent to his office. Monsieur Burbank, yet again, I'm so sorry I derailed your health with the half-stick of butter that's probably in each gigundo whoopie pie.

See you Saturday! - Photos by Wasabi Prime
