Painting The Blogosphere Pink for Project Pink

Breast cancer research is an issue that I hold dear to my heart as breast cancer has touched our family on both sides – my Ninang Bella, my aunt Aileen, Jake’s Aunt Sally, and Jake’s Aunt Darla. I have participated in the Race for the Cure for many years, including the inaugural race through Golden Gate Park with my mom when I was in college and even while I was 7 months pregnant with Dylan in Oklahoma City. A few years ago, Jake, Riley, Dylan, and I all did the Race for the Cure 5K in San Francisco, wearing those ladies’ names on our shirts.

So when Marilyn of the Artsy Girl Connection invited me to be part of a blog hop for breast cancer awareness, I didn't hesitate to participate. See the other bloggers, below, who are also painting the blogosphere pink for a day, today.

Here are a few PINK treats that I've made over the years. Enjoy!

Cin cin! Make a pink syrup out of beets for a pretty cocktail.

Soup's on! Start dinner with a fuschia-hued beet soup.

Color your homemade gnocchi rosy! Try my beet-asiago gnocchi.

How about a uniquely hued mousse: spiced beet mousse?!?

...or cardamom-beet marshmallows for a pale pink treat.
