Each year I fill the holiday season with Christmas baking. An annual Buche de Noel with my son is always on the list for Christmas Eve, sometimes I teach Christmas cookie classes, often Buche de Noel classes, participate in cookie exchanges and for years made gingerbread houses with my children and an extra one for their pre school and elementary school classes. This year the holidays took a bit of a baking twist as I was thinking how best to be charitable with my baking skills. For days leading up to Thanksgiving we lived with dangerous air quality in the San Francisco Bay Area while those in Bute County suffered directly from the Campfire. I was so horrified by the fire I felt I must find something unique to be charitable this holiday season. The timing was perfect when the Palo Alto High School choir boosters asked me to help with their Madrigal Feast Fundraiser. I readily raised my hand and baked more than 200 of Sarabeths’s Bakery Chocolate Marmalade cookies.
