Fudgy chocolate brownies are a great student care package

student care package of browniesAlthough I live near Fairytale Brownies headquarters and my alma matre of Arizona State University in Tempe, Ariz., I spend my summers in Seattle. Believe it or not, it’s rather hot back home at this time of year.

Late last month, I was invited to a Sun Devil Send-Off event in Seattle. The event offered recent Seattle area high school graduates the chance to ask local alumni like me about their college experience and make friends with other incoming students before heading south to Arizona.

Remember your favorite service person with Patriotic brownies for Memorial Day

send browniesMy son has always wanted to be a pilot. Except for an obsession with cooking shows, and my pots and pans when he was 2, he's always loved everything about flight, planes, jets, and the military.

Although I'm extremely proud of all that he's accomplished, and thankful for his service to our country (U.S. Air Force), like any Mom, I miss him terribly. Because he's stationed 6,000 miles away, I can't just hop on a plane and pop in for a visit. So we Facetime and email, and I send brownie care packages whenever the mood strikes.
