11 Inspirational Orange Recipes

As readers of this blog know, I recently participated in my third Cycle for Survival, which raises funds for rare cancer research at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center. My teammates and I rode in honor and in memory of many people—and wore those loved ones' names on our arms. 

That's me, on the left!

No one rides alone in the fight against cancer.

In addition, we raised over $41,000 for rare cancer research! I'm so proud of this contribution to the cause. We're still accepting tax-deductible donations till April 1, 2015, if you would like to help.

In honor of this event, I asked some food blogger friends to create recipes featuring orange ingredients—since orange is Cycle's official color.

My foodie buddies came back with an amazing array of #OrangeInspiration recipes, helping me to spread awareness of Cycle for Survival's important mission. Please check them all out!
