Think Pink This October

It is time to cook for a cause. Throughout October, honor Breast Cancer Awareness Month with one pink recipe at a time.

Pink Champagne Cake

"This was a lovely white cake like the kind you'd have at a wedding. You can't taste the champagne, but it bakes beautifully."


Pink Lemonade

"This was a very refreshing drink. I loved the light pink color that the cranberry juice gave it."


Smoked Salmon & Cream Cheese Swirls

"Outstanding! These were great for a snack or for company. I used fresh chives from the garden."

-Andi of Longmeadow Farm

Sweet Pink Popcorn

"This stuff was addicting! The flavor reminded me of those old-fashioned popcorn balls."

-Crafty Lady 13

Strawberry-Thyme Butter

"This was a delicious spread! I loved the flavor of the thyme with the berries — they went great together."


Bon Bon Cookies

"These are very buttery cookies with a yummy cherry surprise in the middle. They barely got a chance to cool before my family gobbled them all up!"


Potato & Beet Salad

"This was excellent! The pickled beets and horseradish add unique flavor. The red and green peppers and celery add crunchy texture and wonderful color."


Pink Lady Squares

"These were delicious! Everyone raved about them and wanted the recipe."


Crab Linguine

"Oh my, was this good! The rich, creamy sauce combined with the crab flavor was excellent."


Campari Sorbet

"You got me with Campari! This was so refreshing, clean and cooling."


Beet, Chickpea & Almond Dip

"Fabulous! This was like a garlicky hummus spread with a twist. The beet and nuts combine well with the garbanzos and add great flavor."


Pink Lemonade Thins

"I love shortbread and this was such a refreshing version. The whole family enjoyed these!"


Pink Cookies

"These were awesome. I used strawberry cake mix with chocolate chips. It was so good that I ate one right out of the oven!"

-4-H Mom

Ham Salad

"This is exactly how I've eaten this salad my whole life. This is the absolute best ham salad ever!"


Pink Cake Icing

"I loved this icing! The lemon juice gave it a little bit of pucker power. I didn't use any water as the consistency was already perfectly spreadable."


Red Pepper Pasta

"This was a really nice twist on pasta sauce. The flavors were amazing together!"

-Baby Kato

Strawberry-Banana Sunrise Smoothie

"I loved the deep red color from the strawberries and the creaminess from the banana. This was a great morning treat!"


Strawberry Chiffon Pie

"I made only the filling and served it in bowls. It had a lovely, light delicate flavor and was a nice dessert after a heavy meal."


Grilled Pink Grapefruit

"We had these for breakfast this morning and loved them! The honey really mellows the grapefruit's tartness."


Chocolate Cherry Bundt Cake

"This was really good! It was moist, dense and decadent without being overly sweet."


Borscht Salmon

"I didn't have time to puree the vegetables, so I just put them on top after thickening the broth with flour. It was a big hit!"

-Chef #707200

Fish Eye Cocktails

"Wow, these go down nicely! I didn't have any regular rum so I used Malibu and left out the extra sugar. They came out sweet, tart and so refreshing."


Sweet Beet Bread

"I've never liked beets, but I tried this recipe and loved it! The bread came out with a beautiful pink color and was very moist."


Pink Pillows

"These cookies had great strawberry flavor and looked very pretty. I frosted them with pink icing and they didn't last the night!"


Powder Puff Chex Crunch

"This was addictive! I can't get over how good this was. This was a fantastic quick dessert!"

-Marg (CaymanDesigns)

Peppermint Ice Cream

"My husband requested that I make this and I'm so glad I did. It was wonderful!"


Coronation Chicken Salad

"Outstanding! This is the kind of recipe that leaves you lacking the words to describe it. I wanted to get the 1950s experience, so I used curry powder instead of paste."

-Mimi Bobeck

Pink Fluff Dessert

"I made this last night and it was a hit with the family. We loved it! It tastes like cherry ice cream if you freeze it."


Rambling Rose Cupcakes

"The rose and pistachio flavors were a great combination. Next time I make these, I will add vanilla instead of lemon zest to the batter and a little more rose water to the frosting."

-Elly in Canada

Pink Potatoes

"These were delicious! I used baby red potatoes to add a little more pink color to the dish."
