Fall Colors Include Pink

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month

Cook for the Cure with KitchenAid

During the month of October, we think of fall colors such as Orange and Brown. But I've been noticing a lot of pink lately. Even those hulks who play professional football are unabashedly wearing pink. It's Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

One of our favorite brands, KitchenAid, has a 14-year long partnership with the Susan G. Komen foundation to fight breast cancer. KitchenAid has raised over $10 million with it's Cook for the Cure campaign. Here are a few suggestions from the folks at Kitchenaid and Susan G. Komen foundation for cooks and foodies to join the fight against Breast Cancer.

Kitchenaid has launched a social media-based program called 10,000 Cupcakes, One Great Cause. Whip up a batch of cupcakes, post a cupcake picture on Twitter or Instagram using the hashtags #10000cupcakes and #donate. For each post during October, KitchenAid will donate $1 up to $10,000 total. Program details are available at:

Also, KitchenAid is expanding its Cook for the Cure Collection with new products:

KitchenAid has introduced a ceramic bowl for its five-quart stand mixer featuring a white bowl decorated with light and dark pink polka dots. The bowl features a convenient pouring spout and is dishwasher and microwave safe. In addition, the brand recently unveiled seven- and 11-piece cutlery sets that will be available in Raspberry Ice, a bold and bright shade of pink, for a limited time only. The cutlery sets are constructed with German-manufactured steel that undergoes a precise ice-hardening treatment, which uses a series of heating and cooling patterns to strengthen corrosion resistance and flexibility. The sets will be available through October 31.

Additionally, KitchenAid launched a Cook for the Cure cookbook, filled with more than 110 recipes and culinary inspiration for cooks. The book will be available on Amazon.com.

In 2015, KitchenAid will donate $450,000 or more to Komen through the Cook for the Cure program. Product sales will not affect this donation.

Save, Donate, Sell and Toss

6353050_SLooking at the pile of things on the floor of this living room is a good litmus test. Do you see a collection of treasures found at local estate sales? Or do you see a pile of stuff that needs to be gotten rid of? However you interpret this picture might be an indicator of how you feel about clutter in your home.

Having too much stuff can weigh us down both emotionally and physically. A house so crowded that you can no longer see the floor is the stuff for television shows about hoarding. Most homeowners don’t fall into that category…yet.  Most of us have stuff stashed throughout the house in basements, attics, closets and the garage.

Clearing out the clutter and vetting our possessions can be a daunting task that most of us avoid. Buying new stuff is so much more fun than dealing with the old stuff we no longer use or want. Facing the boxes and bins of our attics and garage is the stuff of nightmares for some of us.

However, de-cluttering is a great way to love your possessions and home more. Start small with a box, a closet or a room. Go through everything and put it in one of four piles: save, sell, donate or toss. If you don’t want to sell things, you can combine the sell and donate piles. Make sure to donate the bags and boxes of unwanted stuff right away so it doesn’t become just another pile of clutter.
