What a wonderful idea.
Amanda of ‘I am Baker’ started this based on the following:
Desserts for the Deserving was established in 2011 with the sole purpose of bringing people joy. It is a non-profit movement where bloggers, bakers, crafters, and all forms of creative people offer up time and resources to bring strangers joy.
- 1/2 cup butter, softened
- 1/2 cup white sugar
- 1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
- 1 egg
- 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/4 tsp baking powder
- 1 cup old-fashioned oats
- 1 cup chocolate chips
I had been selected to send these yummy treats to two separate nominees:
I would like to nominate Sam. Through the ups and downs, the good and the bad he has always stuck by my side. He is always there to help those who need it most even though he is having some hardships himself. He has gone through a lot with struggles at work and other family issues so I would love to brighten his day with a little something sweet!
I would like to nominate a good friend of mine, Melissa. She works and studies full-time and to make things more complicated has lost both of her parents over the last year. I am not there to give her a hug, but she more than deserves one; she is caring and sweet and would go out of her way to make someone else’s day brighter.
I hope both Sam & Melissa enjoy the treats when they arrive, they should be getting them anytime now, and I would like to thank Amanda for allowing me to be a part of such a wonderful group of bakers! I can’t wait to be able to take part in this again, it’s a little thing, that may just help someone out in a big way!
