Pink Velvet Cookies & a GIVEAWAY!


So today is the last day of Breast Cancer Awareness week.  I hope you enjoyed all the pink and cancer fighting food.  I really hope that you were inspired to do a self exam or get a mammogram, and take action to take care of yourself!  Breast Cancer can affect anyone; young, old, man, woman, healthy, unhealthy etc.  Please be proactive, and help the stop of this horrible disease.

To end the week I made something sinful and pink.  I had to laugh on Monday when That Skinny Chick Can Bake make these cookies.  I guess great minds think alike.  Considering we used the same recipe, I am just going to send you to Liz to grab the recipe.  I tried to adjust the  color to make them more pink that red, but that is really hard when you are starting with brown.  But they taste good, are soft, and have just a hint of chocolate, so I am not too sure the color really matters.

To end the week I would like to say Thank You to everyone who joined me this week.  I know I asked all of you pretty last minute, so thanks for stepping up and helping me pull this off!

We also have a fun giveaway for you!
