As many of you know, October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which means it's time to show our support for those affected by breast cancer. Considering that about one in eight women will develop breast cancer in their lifetime, it's crucial that we support the research efforts towards finding a cure. This month, along with sporting pink ribbons, donating to research organizations, and volunteering in your community, try these recipes to spread awareness (and satisfy your sweet tooth).
