…and I will be making cookie dough.

LOTS of it in fact!

Coconut Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookie dough to be mighty exact.

I know you are itching for this recipe – I know I know – you keep asking ….and I am holding out on you.

And I am still holding out on you.


Next best thing – enjoying the cookie goodness I have to share by participating in one of the following events:

If you soooooo happen to live in the San Fran/Bay Area – you are in luck!!! 

On Saturday, April 2nd,from 10am-2pm,  my foodie friend (and yoga buddy) Samin Nosrat is organizing a pop-up bakesale to be held at the following locations:

Oakland–Pizzaiolo (5008 Telegraph Ave.)
Berkeley–Gioia Pizzeria (1586 Hopkins St.)
San Francisco (Mission)–Bi-Rite Market (3639 18th St.)
San Francisco (Fillmore)–coming soon

*The latest – Bakesale For Japan has gone NATIONAL!!!

For more information about Bakesale for Japan (and updates on how to participate in your city!), please check Samin’s blog ciao samin

If you would like to contribute your own baked-homey-goodness, or volunteer at one of the event locations, please send an email to bakesaleforjapan@gmail.com.

In Samin’s words – the event is all about professional and amateur bakers, cooks, artists, artisans, and musicians coming together around food to make something BIG happen.

And last year – Samin’s Bakesale For Haiti raised $23,000!!! …this time – we hope to raise $100,000!!!

You get the idea ….come out and support – and THAT means eating CAKE.

I will be humbly contributing some dozens of my Coconut Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies (and other delights). Hope to see you at my home base location – Pizzaioli in Temescal (or at one of the other locations??)


If you can not make it to Samin’s Bakesale For Japan – Do NOT Despair.

My foodie friend (and Dharma sista), Sabrina Modelle of the Tomato Tart, is organizing an online bakesale – yes, you read that right – an ONLINE BAKESALE.

It is an ‘auction’ really – you can bid to win TWO dozen of my fresh-baked Coconut Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies baked just for YOU – how SWEET is that?!

….and I will mail them to you – who doesn’t LOVE a care package?

Ohhh! and there will be lots of other amazing baked-goodness to bid on toooooo – you can read Sabrina’s blog post about the event here.

The short of it: The auction will take place on March 30, 2011. You will be able to preview the goodies starting a few days before- just like a good silent auction.

All proceeds will go to Second Harvest Japan.

The goal is $2,500.

Interested in contributing to the goody auction? … or, if you’d like to offer a corporate sponsorship, match, or involve your organization, send an email to Sabrina at bakesale@thetomatotart.com.

Thanks for reading y’all – and feel free to post far and wide about these super-sweet community events.
