Calling all bakers!!- Please join me in baking for "my" soldier!

I am sending out an invitation to all the bakers who read my blog to join me by baking cookies for a soldier this month.

I am leading a team for the first time for Operation Baking Gals. I have been baking with this group for 15 of the last 16 rounds. I missed the first round because I didn't know about the group. After all this time I thought I should step up and lead my own team.

The soldier I am baking for is Dan McNally, a 1st Lieutenant serving in Iraq. I clean house for his girlfriend's grandmother. They gave me his name because they know I bake for at least one soldier every month. I also advertise that I bake for soldiers and am always asking people to give me the names of guys and gals that are serving overseas.

If you are interested in joining me, head over to Bakinggals and (after you register) join my team, Team Country Cookies, and bake Dan some cookies or brownies or whatever moves you, to show him we appreciate his sacrifices. It's a wonderful group, and receiving homemade goodies means a lot to the men and women who are so far away from home. It would also mean a lot to me to have you on my team. Thanks!


  1. I want to join your team! I'm a newbie to the Baking Gals and this is my first round. I'm excited to do this! I saw you had a team on facebook and knew that was the one I wanted to join!

    Count me in!

  2. I had seen the baking gals button on several blogs and had no idea what it was- well, I just registered!! I am so excited about it! So glad you shared so I finally know what it's about- I'm in!

  3. Susan.... what a wonderful thing to do.

  4. I am going to register but please save me a place. I am very interested and would love to work with you.

  5. I have been waiting ages for Baking gals to OK my application. I once was registered but not sure what the issue is since they said to register again as they were giving the site a new update. I would love to bake for your soldier as I am a military Mom myself and bake and send EVERY month since Operation Desert Storm. Am I giving my age away here? So if you can them to send out my approval to get into the site I would be happy to join your team.

  6. Susan: I'd like to bake along with you! I registered a while back on the site but never received any notification that I was a member? Not sure what to do.


Please feel free to comment. I love hearing from others.
