|An absolutely luscious cookie….Panetella de Guayaba…Thank you Andriana!|
When I decided to participate with the Secret Valentine Cookie Exchange, organized by Alice @ A Mama, Baby and Shar-Pei in the Kitchen, I had no plans. I thought I would be home. However, as it got colder and colder in NJ we thought, why not go south? Our older son and his family, live in Atlanta. We could visit them, then head to Florida. So, in the span of ten minutes we changed our schedule! Oh, but what about my cookies? I realized I would be leaving on the 6th of February, and the cookies would start arriving that week. After contemplating what I could do, I e-mailed Alice!! Could she possibly get in touch with my secret valentine, and have her mail my cookies to Atlanta? She said she would try.
We arrived at my son's house on the 7th, around 3 pm. Shortly afterwards, the mail lady came to the door, and asked me to sign for a package. I thought it was for my son so, I put it on his desk. When he came home, he told me the package was for me. I knew right away, it had to be from my Secret Valentine! I was so excited by the arrival of the cookies! Up until that point, I wasn't sure if Alice was able to get in touch with my Secret Valentine. This was such a lovely surprise, and the surprise didn’t end there! My Secret Valentine was Greatfood360〫. She not only made the most luscious cookie guava bars, "Panetela de Guayaba", but was gracious enough to send me a container of guava paste so I could make them myself. Something I am looking forward to doing!! The consensus was, absolutely delicious!
Thank you Alice, Adriana, and all the participants of the cookie exchange, for making this Valentine’s Day a little more special! Happy Valentine’s Day everyone!
