Happy Veterans Day

Posted on November 11, 2011


Good morning, and Happy Veterans Day!

In honor of that, I want to tell you about a group of volunteers who send baked goods and other items to our currently deployed troops.  The name of the group is Baking GALS, and I am currently participating in this round.

Basically, you register to join.  Then you read about the different teams; there is information and sometimes a picture about the person you might choose.  After picking a team to join, you are personally emailed the mailing address and any other specific suggestions/requests.  Very little information is given over the website, and it is very well protected. There is a designated time period for you to ship your items to the person.  Also, the website has helpful tips for what to bake & send and how to pack your goodies.

This round, I sent pumpkin chocolate chip cookies, maple pecan bites, and sugar cookies (based off this recipe; I made a few minor changes).  I also sent some toiletries and a Christmas card

It’s too late to join this round, but if you are interested, be sure to check out the website and register.  It’s a fun & easy way to show your support even if you are just sending some homemade treats.
