A-Ten-Hut! Recruiting some Baking Gals! You interested?

Helloooo out there? *echo echo*

I know. I know. Lately I’ve been quite the slacker on my little food blog. It seems like my blog’s been a placeholder for Tuesday with Dorie recipes and inconsistent Bunday Monday posts. Blame new my job, lack of time, Hubs losing his socks/belt/hat/wallet and asking me to drop everything to help him find “it”, summer writer’s block, whatever… but I’m back to talk to you (my readers) about something important.

So listen up!

<— Remember this logo? Let me refresh your memory.

The idea for Operation Baking GALS (Give A Little Support) has grown since my first participation almost a year ago (Wow! Time flies!) when Steph of Steph Chows was team leader for her cousin Eric. I was so inspired by what Steph’s team did that I also sent my husband’s friend (also serving in Iraq at the time) a care package too. He emailed later to tell me “… there’s nothing like getting a little piece of home to remind you why you’re here.” I’ll never forget his words. I regret to say it’s been a while since I participated though but I’m backkkkkkk…

Operation Baking Gals is up to Round 10 now and since my fabulous friend April of Wine Lover’s Cooking Diary is team leader this time around, I knew I wanted to support her and her brother, who is currently serving in Iraq with the Indiana National Guard.

(Her brother is 3rd from the left… and he’s single ladies! *cat calls*)

If you would like to join April’s team (and for more info), please email her:


(If you email her, tell her Clara sent ya. I get friend brownie points!)

Deadline: June 28th July 11th

Baked goods need to be sent out between July 1-11th

I’m sure she’d love to have you! (Me too!)

PS. Any suggestions for favorite cookie recipes? Right now I’m thinking Dorie Greenspan’s World Peace Cookies. Mmmm…

    Woo hoo! Thanks for the shout out! :) Deadline to sign up is actually July 11th – you can sign up anytime during the shipping but I doubt one would want to sign up, bake, and ship all on the same day.

    Join me ladies!! My brother and his fellow troops love receiving packages from home. :)

    Oh and PS CB, major brownie points. HA

    Haha, I’d just been thinking about sending World Peace cookies too.

    Then I got to wondering…are there soldiers with dietary issues like mine? Do they ever get treats? Hmm.
