#bakeitforward: Baking for No Kid Hungry

Even though I’m not the primary chef in our household’s kitchen, I love watching the Food Network. The different episodes inspire me to try new cuisines and flavors—and I’m majorly addicted to all their cooking competition shows. If my husband and I aren’t rushing off to do something on Saturday morning, I curl up on our sofa with a cup of tea and watch an episode of The Pioneer Woman, while my awesome husband whips up a big weekend breakfast. This is really one of my most favorite parts of the weekend!

This November, I was in the process of completing this Saturday morning ritual, and came across a commercial for the Food Network’s #bakeitforward campaign. It’s pretty simple. You bake a treat, post a picture to your social media page, and tag the campaign’s hashtag AND a friend of your choice. For each share, Food Network donates $1 (the equivalent of 10 meals) to No Kid Hungry…and…your tagged friend is challenged to bake something.

It took me all of five seconds to know that I wanted to jump on this bandwagon—I mean an excuse to bake sugary treats AND contribute to a great cause? What a match made in heaven!

Throughout the campaign, we fired up 4 treats baked in 4 different cities.
