Treats Day 2 and Day 3

I hadn’t planned to blog about all these treats we sent my friend Mark as a thank you for programming my new site, but Alexis took such great photos and I would never turn down an opportunity to talk about baked goods.

Day One: We sent a Root Beer Sampler.

Day Two: Alexis made her famous chocolate chip cookie and wrapped them in brown wax sleeves and bakers twine. Do you have a favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe? I’m obsessed with this recipe.

Day Three: We dropped off a box of Beard Papa cream puffs. Do you know these? It is a Japanese chain that has come to the US in the last 5 or so years. They use really fresh ingredients including raw vanilla bean for the pudding. You have to eat them fast because after a few hours they get a little soggy. My mouth is salivating just thinking about it. Have you tried Beard Papa’s?
