Bake Sale! Bake Sale!

in All Posts

Tomorrow is a special day!  Ashley is hosting a vegan bake sale for Team In Training (TNT), a charitable organization that raises money for blood cancers such as leukemia.  I am running the Disney Marathon through TNT, and it’s a great organization to support!    


The Bake Sale is auction-style fundraising.  I offered to make vegan cookies for Ashley’s bake sale.  So, I broke out my only vegan cook book: Eat, Drink, and Be Vegan by Dreena Burton.



I’m cooking up a batch of Super-charge Me! Cookies, which are delicious and healthy, too!  I hope someone buys them; they are great power snacks! 🙂


You can check out my cookies and loads of other yummy treats, which will be posted TOMORROW on Ashley’s blog.


Here are the other detailsdetails:


  • Go to Ashley’s blog tomorrow to see all the items up for sale!
  • All funds will go directly to Team in Training/LLS using Ashley’s TNT fundraising page.
  • Bidding for the bake sale will be held Wednesday (12/2) from 2:30 p.m. to 12:00 a.m. EST 
  • Anyone with a U.S. shipping address (blogger or not) can bid by emailing  Don’t email me directly; e-mail Ashley on Wednesday!

In other news… I posted this awesome Operation Beautiful note today:


I’m rocking a No Meat Athlete t-shirt.  Now, that’s a cute holiday gift for the athletic vegetarian in your life.  🙂


And here are my eats! 


For dinner, I had Tortilla soup from Wolfgang Puck, a slice of bread with real buttah, and a carrot.  (Plus, unpictured crackers).


Snacks from this afternoon included cheese and crackers:




Cereal (with rice milk):


Photographs are proof that I did in fact engage in work today.  🙂


Off to bed I go! 


Don’t forget – Bake Sale is tomorrow!  🙂

    p.s… did the rice milk do cereal justice?

    • Caitlin December 1, 2009, 9:38 pm

  • Evan Thomas December 1, 2009, 10:03 pm

    I’ll be baking, too! It’s a great idea on Ashley’s part

  • Kristie Lynn December 1, 2009, 10:06 pm

    I love the lone carrot on the plate. It needs some friends! 😉

  • Sarah @ See Sarah Eat December 1, 2009, 10:10 pm

  • Amanda December 1, 2009, 10:29 pm

    Thats an awesome idea for a fund raiser. I hope it does well! I haven’t tried rice milk yet, but I’m totally in love with almond milk. Maybe I’ll give it a try next.

  • Jolene ( December 1, 2009, 10:53 pm

    Great shot of the cheese and crackers!!! You are getting really good with that camera girl!

  • Deva (Voracious Vorilee) December 1, 2009, 10:59 pm

    I love rice milk, but wish it had more protein it’s so light and sweet – yummy 🙂

  • Jordan December 1, 2009, 10:59 pm

    Yum real butter. Love that stuff- in moderation of course. I figure that is ‘more natural’ than spreads made with oils. Closer to the cow, maybe? Haha.

  • Jenna December 1, 2009, 11:04 pm

    cant wait to see how the cookies come out~

  • Joelle (The Pancake Girl) December 1, 2009, 11:15 pm

    What does rice milk taste like? Better than almond or soy you think?

    • Caitlin December 1, 2009, 11:18 pm

      i have the vanilla kind but i think its better than unsweet almond

  • emily December 1, 2009, 11:28 pm

    For some reason the photos in this post look extra beautiful! I’m kind of in love with that cereal shot!

  • healthy ashley December 1, 2009, 11:48 pm

    Wow, wow, wow! Thanks for the support with the bake sale!!! <3

    Now winning bidders have 48 hours to pay.. and there's no set limit on when bakers must ship out the product. I trust everyone will get it out as soon as they can. No need to rush anyone! 😉

    Thank you, Caitlin!

    ps- I tried to read around your cheese and crackers plate. A little tease maybe? 🙂

  • Tasha - The Clean Eating Mama December 2, 2009, 2:41 am
