Yikes, this past weekend was busy. In fact, I couldn’t seem to stop yawning at work today. Fortunately, I also found it difficult to stop smiling.
This past weekend was the MKEfoodies Cookies for Kids’ Cancer Bake Sale. And it was a success! Thanks to the generosity of 45+ bakers and awesome volunteers, and the phenomenal donations from area businesses for our silent auction, we were able to raise over $2100 for Cookies for Kids’ Cancer.
All day long on Saturday I found myself increasingly amazed by how many people had given of their time & talents to make our event happen. There is no way that Peef and I could have pulled this thing off on our own. And there were so many kind-hearted folks from Milwaukee who helped out. Check out this slideshow for an event recap-in-pictures!
We wish that every single one of you could have been there -- to eat sweet treats with us and celebrate the victories that science is making in the area of pediatric cancer research. But, since you couldn't, we decided to bring a small piece of the event to you. Our contribution to the event was a double batch of these amazing [better than] “Crack Brownies”.

Imagine a pan of rich fudgey brownies, sprinkled with peanuts and chopped Reese’s peanut butter cups, and then topped with a layer of peanut butter fudge rice krispie treats… yeah, they’re seriously addicting. Until there's a cure for pediatric cancer, I'm glad there are goodies like this to support the cause!
