Operation Baking Gals Round 15 Roundup
I wanted to take a minute to thank everyone who participated in Team Beantown Baker for Operation Baking Gals Round 15. We had 16 team members sending care packages to Rebecca who is stationed in Iraq for 18 months. Rebecca should be getting all of her packages in time for the holidays. Thanks again everyone who helped make her holidays a bit brighter.
I asked the members of my team to send me any pictures or links to blog updates about their packages. I love seeing all the hard work people have put in to help make a stranger’s day. Here are some of the things that Rebecca will be receiving from our team.
I also got a few emails listing some of the goodies sent to Rebecca:
– Kim sent 2 boxes, including chocolate chip cookies with M&Ms, oatmeal chocolate chip cookies, cinnamon bread, orange cranberry bread, a “Christmas Vacation” DVD, toiletry items, and a card and photos
– Shari sent two packages including one where she asked everyone in her cookie swap to bring extras to send to Rebecca. Some of the cookies included: Mexican wedding cookies, chocolate chip cookies, peanut butter blossoms, sour cream cookies, sugar and spice cookies, sweet and spicy nuts, pretzels
– Tammy sent a box of cookies
– Keri sent a box of variations of the classic chocolate chip cookie
And finally, here is what I sent to Rebecca. One of Rebecca’s favorite cookies are peanut butter cookies. I decided to send her two versions of a peanut butter cookies. The first is the Monster Cookie. I’ve made these before and this time I just used the holiday colored M&Ms to make them more festive.
I also made some double peanut butter cookies (recipe to come soon). It’s a basic peanut butter cookie with peanut butter chips in it as well.
I also threw in a couple of my holiday favorites including some Trader Joe’s Candy Cane Joe Joe’s. I love these cookies! I also added a small box of mini candy canes and a holiday card that I wrote to her. I hope she enjoys all the goodies.
If I missed anyone’s information, please email me and I will update this post.
