I know that bake sales instantly bring to mind cookies, cupcakes, bars and muffins. 
I also know that I never just go with the easiest option. 
Last bake sale fundraiser I was involved in I made cheese bread and savory crackers.
This time I went really wild
I made dog bones!
with my little helper, of course!
this truly made for a fun afternoon!
My little baker is quite good for being so young!
And the official taste tester, Roux waiting ever so patiently
(yes, everything revolves around food with me, even my dog's name)
She approves
nom nom nom
Sometimes when I'm eating something I really love I close my eyes too!


  1. These pictures are awesome Lauren!! And your dog biscuits were a huge hit - we raised over $2200 at the Whole Foods Gateway site thanks to you and all the generous donors/volunteers!!!

  2. So glad I was able to help! That is an amazing amount that was raised, great job girl!
