Hello BakingGALS team members!
My name is Sam and I live in the Snoqualmie Valley area of WA state. I live about 40 minutes east of Seattle and 20 minutes west of Snoqualmie Pass (which I now know from driving over the Idaho pass into WA that Snoqualmie isn't much of a mountain pass). I love living out in the mountains and I hike a lot.
This is my first time participating in a baking round and I absolutely loved it.
I am currently in school (I do one class a quarter online) to better help me with my job change/loss situation. I am fortunate that for now I still do have a job. My current quarter ends in about 8 more days and right now I am working on a final project for that class. Baking is one of my favorite stress releases these days and I think this group is going to be a wonderful outlet for me.
packaging tips and did get the large rectangular zip-lock containers for packaging (I would normally use zip-lock bags so this was a great idea).
I went ahead and tried the apple peel trick...if nothing else, I found it interesting.
I wrote a small letter for each box. I actually like writing letters and rarely have a reason to do so anymore. I didn't get other fun items to stash in there...but there are other rounds.
