Cookie swap 2015

Greetings, bakers! It’s nearly the end of 2015, so I need to post all the last photos from our last two months of meetups.

First, a note about January’s meetup. On Thursday, January 14th we return to the always beautiful Summerland Waterfront Resort for another Potluck and Movie night!  The lovely Lisa J will again be our host and the theme will be “Healthy Potluck,” so dig through your recipes for a nourishing and delicious dish to bring along. The idea is to have another foodie movie, but what one? Julie and Julia? Chef? A documentary about sommeliers? Let me know in the comments below or email me your thoughts!

Now let’s jump into December and the 3rd Annual Cookie Swap, hosted by the glorious Lisa L. Thank you, Lisa! There were many treats and much tea. Below are the photos depicting all that we created and subsequently ate.
