Eggland's Best Pink Party and Giveaway!

Pictured Above: My Daughter and My Mom, the best sous chefs

About a month ago I was invited to be part of "Eggland's Best Double Dozen" to help raise awareness and funding for the fight against breast cancer.  Eggland's Best offered to sponsor a brunch/pink party for up to 15 of my friends and also to donate $100 to Susan G. Komen For The Cure in my name.  I was absolutely thrilled to have the opportunity to host a brunch, but was overjoyed that my little blog had a chance to help such a good cause, such as Susan G. Komen For The Cure.  I jumped on the opportunity.

 I love Eggland's Best Eggs, and prefer to use them if at all possible, so I was thrilled to receive my goody box filled with kitchen gadgets, ramekins, a cute little plush egg for the kids, and loads of coupons for a free dozen.  I cashed in coupons for a few dozen eggs right away and set about making this Mexican Fried Potato Skillet and these fantastic Breakfast Tacos.

Soon it came time to plan a menu for my Eggland's Best Brunch & Pink Party and wow did I have a hard time deciding what to serve.  In the end, I knew that I wanted the food to be as PINK as possible and I also knew that I wanted everything to be able to be served at room temperature and still be delicious.  Finally I was able to narrow things down and this is what I came up with. (Recipes will be shared sometime in the next week).

Hot Ham and Cheese Sliders
Bacon Cheddar Deviled Eggs
Exotic Fruit Salad with Passion Fruit Dressing
Cardamom and Cinnamon Buns
Strawberry Sheetcake

And for dessert a beautifully rich and dense Strawberry Sheetcake that was very pretty in pink!

The guests and I had lots of fun celebrating women and all things pink.  It was a wonderful opportunity and I'm so glad to have been chosen.  I want to give a big thank you to Eggland's Best for allowing me to host such a wonderful event.  I also want to take this time to urge you to think about Breast Cancer Awareness, both for yourself and others.

From now until November 15, Eggland's Best will be stamping all of their farm-fresh eggs with the Susan G. Komen Pink Ribbon Running stamp in support of breast cancer awareness. Additionally Eggland's Best will be donating $50,000 to support Susan G. Komen in their pledge to end breast cancer forever.  You can read about it on their site HERE

My friends: Tara, Megan & Joy

      2. Kim,
        Fabulous pink party. If I lived close enough I would have invited myself over.
        I have yet to walk in a 3 day, but our family has sponsored several walkers. It is really inspiring to see their photos, (some of the costumes are hilarious) and hear them talk about the experience. It is a life changing event.
