National Food Bloggers Bake Sale Recap

Bake sales to support Share Our Strength's campaign to end childhood hunger were held throughout the country yesterday as part of the Great American Bake Sale. Millions of children in the U.S. go without nutritious meals, and these bake sales raise money to change that. More information on Share Our Strength can be found here.

Food bloggers were busy in their kitchens this week baking for the event, which was organized by Gaby Dalkin of WhatsGabyCooking.com. Jacquie from The JLH Life led the NYC effort and got a table at the Brooklyn Flea. More than 40 bloggers participated, and you can see what they all baked here.

Despite the cold weather and threat of rain, sales went well. I was there from 11 am to noon, where the chocolate chip cookies from The Girl Who Ate Everything and the chocolate caramel slices from Simply Sifted sold out before my eyes.

After my shift I joined my friends to wander the Flea and sample all the savory goods.
But before I left, I stocked up on some of the delish treats. Below are shots of what I made plus my haul.

If you weren't able to make it to any of the events yesterday, you can still donate to help make sure that no child goes hungry.
