So yesterday, I was reading about Ike and his family and all that is being done to help the family and I saw that there was going to be a bake sale today near UT campus to raise money for medical bills. So I got to baking as quick as I could.
I made two recipes from Vegan with a Vengeance. Well, slightly altered recipes based on what I had in the fridge and pantry. No time to run to the store.
Blackberry Chocolate Chip BlondiesI didn't even think to look and see if I had any raspberry preserves before I started baking these. And of course I didn't. But luckily I had a container of blackberries. So I followed the recipe for the Raspberry preserves using them.
Lemon Carrot MuffinsThis recipe for Lemon Poppyseed muffins was going along just fine until I got my poppy seeds out and they looked funny. Kind of clumpy. Not good. So I decided to grate some carrot and add it in. It added some nice color too.
I'm so happy that I got to participate in some small way in helping little Ike-a-saurus. I only wish I could have posted this earlier in the day so that those of you in the area could have gone to buy some baked goods. But I know there will be more bake sales. You can go to the events page and see what else is planned to raise money for this family.
