Robin: I saw your cookie exchange on the food network and it brought a lot of memories back. I use to host a cookie exchange but we moved and with a new child and being busy at work I had no time to host one in the last 3 years. I enjoyed your segment and next year I am going to host a cookie exchange at my house. Thanks for all your delicious recipes! Keep up the good work. LK

Robin, After seeing your website, I was inspired to have my own cookie exchange. I had it yesterday, 12/16 and had 16 women over for the event. It went very smoothly, thank mostly to your tips. I served appetizers (baked brie, shrip dip, tortilla roll-ups, chilled veggie pizza) and drinks. Everyone enjoyed it. We were able to make 2 trips around the table each. I am going to remind everyone before next year's party to be sure that they bring a very large Tupperware container to take their cookies home in. Some of my guests ran out of room in their containers. I held the party for 2 hours. Many of my friends have small children, so between babysitters and all the other holiday stuff going on, the 2 hours was a good amount of time. Thanks again for all the tips, it was just great. It will be the first of many!

I saw your cookie exchange on FoodTV today December 15, 2001. Looks like you have a great idea going and life is very successful for you. Congratulations! Dufur is a small town of 600 about an hour east of Portland, OR, up the Columbia Gorge and then 13 miles from the freeway. We are surrounded by wheat fields in a valley about 20 miles east of Mt Hood. Everything around us has snow and the view of the mountain is awesome. Come on out to Dufur and let us show you what Dufur can do fer you!!!!Happy holidays!!

On December 9th I hosted my second cookie party and wish to thank you for all your guidelines and help. This year I dressed up as Santa and handed out small gifts which were appreciated by all. Also this year I asked the ladies to bring extra cookies which I am bring to a woman's shelter. I am already making plans for next year. 21 ladies attended. Thank you again.

Hi I just wanted to thank-you for having the pleasure to visit your site. My 15 year old daughter watch foodtv.com all the time. It just so happened i was watching the segment about cookie exchanges, and they shared your cookie exchange. I was wondering if all the cookies, you showed, on the show, from the cookie exchange are on the website, they all looked so wonderful. I thought I might try some of those cookies recipes. I really enjoyed your site, and the segment. Thank-You so much. Thank-You for the site. Jodi

Your Rice Pudding recipe is like mine, except, I beat the egg whites and fold them in at the end. Makes a light fluffy pudding. Try it, I think you may like it. Love your Creme Brulee.
