It's hard to believe, but bike season is back again. Here in Denver we alternate between extreme winter (like last Sunday when I was using my weather ruler to measure the snow) and spring. Today it's over 50 degrees and people are out and about doing March 2nd type things: walking dogs, moving items into a truck from a storage unit (my neighbors), going on errands and running stairs at the gym (that was me).
This June I will participate in the Colorado Bike MS for the 5th time. According to wikipedia, that makes this my Wood anniversary. Awesome. Maybe I will treat myself to a nice cutting board as a gift.
The Bike MS is a fundraising ride. The event raises over $3 million. The team that I ride with, Team Stay Fit, should have break the million dollar mark this year. You can help!
Last year, I introduced my Bake MS Campaign - combining cooking and fundraising together to create a world free of MS. Friends were very generous in contributing to my ride and in return, I gave the gift of treats and public adoration via Facebook.
Some of my 2012 Bake MS treats included:
If you make a donation of at least $25 on my participant page for the Colorado Bike MS, I will bake you a treat of your choice. You can use it to bribe or thank your child's teacher. You can lie and say you made it. You can put it in your freezer and break it out after you finish your diet.
Friends Everywhere Else
If you make a donation of at least $30, pick a treat that will ship well and I will send it to you.
What Can I Have?
Feel free to pick a recipe off this blog (or my list of recipes that I tried before this blog). Or if you find another recipe, I'm willing to try it and see what happens. If it turns out well, I'll give you a shout out when I post the pictures here. If you want to donate and diet (donate without a treat) that's fine too and I'll still sing your praises.
