be an angel baker

A call to all my baker friends out there: GIVE GIVE GIVE!bags of cookies

This weekend I had the opportunity to donate some of my baked goods to a great cause, and it felt very nice to start off the holiday season with some giving. I had never really thought of it before, but it’s such a great idea to bake an extra batch or two of whatever you’re making for the holidays and to donate it to a local food bank, shelter, or charity bake sale. Good stuff people!lady with her cookies

Lady was of the opinion that she was in need of shortbreads (seriously, the cats love all the butter in them), but in the end she was willing to share.broken shortbreads

This is the only kind of broken heart that should be allowed at Christmas time. Help heal a heart of your own by finding a local shelter (human OR animal!) or charity in your area and give in your own special way. The world will thank you.

For a list of shelters in Toronto, click here, or for information on helping a four-legged friend this holiday season, check out the Humane Society. AND PLEASE!!! Give daily by donating nothing more than a minute of your time to the The Animal Rescue Site; each click helps feed shelter animals, and it’s as simple as being reminded via email every day! Happy Holidays everyone!!!

  1. You can actually make dog friendly cookies and bring them to the shelter. My puppies get SO many at Christmas we decided to make some extra and drop them off at Animal Control in the West End.

    We made cheddar cheese short bread and doggy safe “chocolate” dipped milk bones.

    Apparently they LOVED THEM <3

  2. What a great idea! My mom and I have a huge baking day every year, and it would be so easy to make a few extra. I like it! :)

  3. What a lovely idea.. if only it hadn’t made me cry..
