Assignment: Bake Sale USA - Your Recipe for Success
iREPORTERS SIGNED UP
Created March 18, 2010 by
City governments across the country are cracking down on school bake sales, deeming excess calories, sugar and fat detrimental to the health of the nation's youth. In some districts, home-baked desserts are disallowed, as they don't have nutritional info easily available, but pre-packaged snacks are still on the menu.
Proponents argue that bake sales are an American institution -- a wonderfully homespun moneymaker, a great opportunity for parent-kid bonding, a chance to show off kitchen skills and a great way to share treasured family recipes.
Please share your sweetest stories of bake sales past and present, as well as your best go-to recipe for bake sale goodies that sell out in a second. We'd love:
--Video or written anecdotes
--Video or written recipes. If a video, consider making the treat on-camera.
--Photos of your masterpiece, along with a story or recipe
