A few years back I was an event planner for a state-wide association and part of my job responsibilities entailed planning in-office dinner Board meetings. The challenge in planning was one of the attendees followed a strict vegan diet. Trying to find a caterer at that time was difficult. I came across a place that could accommodate my menu and it was done to perfection. Everything was delicious. Included in the menu were organic brownies and fruit along with a cookie that made an impression; cranberry white chocolate chip.
Fast forward to now…I received a tweet from a friend and in that message was included a link to a facebook page for a local business. I clicked on it and was thrilled to see the familiar name of Linda Kindlon, owner of Bake For You. After a quick email to her we caught up on our lives of the past 6 years and I learned that she closed the food catering company and focused on just baking.
The Cranberry Chip Cookie still lived to be enjoyed!
Linda mentioned that she liked reading my blog and would I like to sample some of her new recipes.
When it comes to food, you do not have to ask me twice, so of course I said yes!
The box from Bake For You arrived and it was almost too pretty to open.
I knew what I would find inside!
And I was not disappointed-
There nestled in-between the scones, brownies, chocolate chip and oatmeal cookies were the delicious cranberry!
I enjoyed the first bite of my favorite cookie, which was moist and bursting with tart and sweet just as I had remembered. Simple and wonderful.
For dessert that evening, I tried one of two cupcakes that were also included in the box. When peeling back the paper, I thought that I would also find a ruffled cake holder, but no! Linda found a way to bake into the presentation wrapper! I was swept into a Guinness Chocolate Cake with chocolate butter cream icing. The flavor was divine.
This box was such a treat and I am so happy that Linda has continued to share her confection talents!
