Boy, oh boy, did readers want cookies this month. Hundreds of people entered the Chocolate Chip Cookie Giveaway--so many that instead of just picking one winner--I picked four!
And so I've been busy baking for:
* Diane, who volunteers every summer, with a group of women, and together they built a house in the Twin Cities for Habitat for Humanity.
* Luann, who's going to celebrate her 29th wedding anniversary, "Now I do not know what the traditional gift is for 29 years, but I think it should be chocolate chip cookies. My husband and I would love them."
* Barbara, who wrote, "It seems like everyone who wins is a volunteer or a member of a club. I am neither. I am just a mom of four sons and a daughter (all grown now with families of their own). I baked lots of cookies when I was raising them and I would love to bake for the grandchildren, but I was diagnosed with a late onset of Muscular Dystrophy. That limits my ability to cook and bake. They are all coming for my birthday and it would be great to be able to offer them homemade cookies once again."
* Mel, who works at the Eldorado Library, "We are in the midst of a very busy summer reading program, complete with pirate ships, magicians and of course lots of books for the kids. With all of this work, we are pooped! Cookies would be just the thing to give us a pick-me-up!"
It was a pleasure to bake for all of you. Enjoy the cookies!
Thanks for reading with me. It's so good to read with friends.
