Earlier this Spring, we were invited to include our cookies in the Daytime Emmy Award gift bags! We could hardly contain our excitement as we envisioned Oprah, Ellen, Rachael and Regis gushing in unision about how scrumptious our treats were. Then we realized they wanted 1,400 gifts shipped overnight to Vegas! We quickly shook the fantasies out of our heads and buckled down. This was going to take an army and a whole 'lotta butter!
This past week-end, my amazing family and a new friend, Susie Wyshak, camped out at my place to mix, scoop, bake, package, babysit and do just about anything else that needed to get done. The hours were long, our backs were aching, the bakery was HOT, but we did it! 1,400 of our Kitchen Sink cookies are now being placed into gift bags to be handed out this Sunday in Las Vegas to every attendee of the Daytime Emmy Awards Show.
I'm thrilled, I'm proud and I'm so very grateful to the people who helped me to accomplish our mission!
