Now, onto today's post!
Feeling blue? (See above text.) If that pint of Ben & Jerry's isn't working, warm and tasty cookies certainly will!
On Saturday, you can support your cookie cravings and a good cause.
The "Sweet Angel" Holiday Cookie Swap and Bake Off challenges 25 volunteer bakers to conjur up five dozen of their signature holiday cookies as a "donation" to the Lower Eastside Girls' Club. Think "Iron Chef" meets Martha Stewart with a charity twist.
A $15 ticket/donation at the door will get guests an empty cookie tin to fill up with treats and a drink ticket for Mionetto Prosecco. Cookies will be sold for between 50 cents and $2 a piece, with all proceeds benefiting the Girls Club's programs.
Celebrity chefs and bakers will judge the Bake Off, including Gina DePalma from Babbo, Myriam Eberhardt from DBGB Kitchen & Bar, Co-Editor Nichelle Stephens of Cupcakes Take The Cake and Sue Torres from Suenos. The winner receives a "Baker's Basket" of kitchen accessories valued at over $600.
When: Saturday, Dec. 19, 1:00-3:00 PM
Where: The new Lower Eastside Girls Club's "Celebrate Cafe" at the Bowery Poetry Club,308 Bowery at 1st Street
