LiveSTRONG With A Taste of Yellow 2010 Heart Series


I am participating in Winos and Foodies, LiveSTRONG With A Taste of Yellow 2010- Heart Series. to raise awareness of  cancer, all types of cancer, and support the Lance Armstrong Foundation. I am dedicating this post to my Mom, Helen, who passed away 3 years ago with Multiple Myeloma, as one of the contributing factors.  She loved yellow and lemons, so I made heart shaped Lemon Bars to honor her. First, I made the lemon bars, and then made the hearts with heart-shaped cookie cutters. I got my love of baking from my Mom, who made wonderful cookies and pies. One of my favorite childhood memories of her is when she was making pie crust.  She would roll up the leftover scraps of dough with butter, sugar, and cinnamon., and  bake mini cinnamon rolls. I got the lemon bar recipe from my friend, Carolyn, many years ago.

My life has been touched my cancer in many ways, too many ways.  I am a 14 yr Melanoma survivor, my mother had Multiple Myeloma, my brother has a rare form of Leukemia, my cousin had lung cancer, and I have lost two dear friends to cancer, all in a 5 year period.  When all of these people in my life were diagnosed with various types of cancer, I was compelled to do something. to raise money for Cancer. I became a Team Captain for the Relay for Life for the American Cancer Society. My Team is Life's a Beach. So, hopefully today  wear yellow or eat yellow food, and remember LiveSTRONG.  I also want to thank Barbara from Winos and Foodies for hosting such a wonderful event.

  1. Thanks for posting about this a few days ago! I just made my own submission, but messed up with the heart part. Did yellow, but didn't know about the heart until after we had photod and and already eaten, so we improvised.
    Excellent idea!

  2. Kim- Thank you! Glad to do it. I think that the submission is process that you go through, and it's the thoughts behind the photo that matter. anything that we can do to raise awareness of cancer and raise money for research is a win-win.
