Divas, I have a very exciting announcement this morning! Domestic Divas will be participating in the Eat My Blog Charity Bake Sale to benefit the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank! I'll be donating some scrumptious baked goods for this very worthy cause, along with many other Los Angeles-area food bloggers. So what am I cooking up? Well, right now I'm leaning toward making Bacon Brownies with Bourbon Caramel Sauce! You heard me right:
Bacon + Chocolate + Charity = Irresistible Taste Explosion with no Guilt!
So mark your calendars! The event will take place on Saturday, December 5th from 10 AM to 4 PM at Zeke’s Smokehouse in West Hollywood (7100 Santa Monica Boulevard), who has generously offered to host the event on their outdoor patio. The event will feature over 600 different baked goods, and all proceeds will be donated to the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank!
Special thanks to Cathy Danh, the author of Gastronomy Blog, for organizing this event!
