Frosting For The Cause

Hi Everyone! Happy Monday! I have nothing new to report for Marathon Monday (in fact, things aren't going that well but i'll save that for another day). Today I want to tell you about a really great thing I got involved in...Frosting For The Cause.

As you may or may not know, my family (like so many other families) has been touched by cancer. I've been an active fundraiser for both the Leukemia and Lymphoma Foundation and the Avon Breast Cancer Foundation. When my sister forwarded me the link to Frosting For The Cause, I immediately needed to sign up. It's a year long blog that features a different blogger each day who shares delicious recipes and heartfelt stories of how cancer has touched their lives.

Why am I telling you all this? Because today I am the featured guest blogger. I would love if you popped over and checked out my blog post. And while you are there, take a minute to appreciate all the other bloggers that have already posted or will post later in the year. There are many great recipes and even more inspirational stories. Here's a sneak peek at my goodies...cookie dough truffles.


If you love to bake, you can also sign up to be a guest blogger at Frosting For The Cause!! Please see the Join Us page to see how you can contribute. Every single person in the fight against cancer helps so don't be shy. This has been a really great thing to be a part of.

So grab some coffee and head over to Frosting For The Cause. You will definitely want to sit and read and drool a while!! Thanks for stopping by today, friends!

Hi Mara ~ Just wanted to thank you for guest posting today. Your truffles look delicious and while you make it look easy, I know how time consuming chocolate dipping anything can be! I sincerely appreciated all your efforts, sharing your personal story with us and for doing so much to help bake a difference. Best wishes to your teammate for a full recovery and I hope that she is able to walk with all of you again this year.
