Minor change in plans...

Tested the cookies before I sent them out, and it seems that our shortening went bad, so the pudding cookies had to go. In it's place I made a different kind of no bake cookies, so two different kinds will be going out today.

No-Bake #1 - Chocolate, oats, peanuts
No-Bake#2 - Peanut butter, oats, crasins, raisens, mini chocolate chips, and marshmallows.

Hope you all like them, you should get them tomorrow or Saturday!

Ok, I promise I didn't forget about the cookies. I had a minor set-back, but the cookies were baked today, and will be shipped tomorrow! Pics will most likely be posted tomorrow.

Going out:
No-bake cookies
Pudding cookies

I hope they are well-liked!

Perusing old posts and lj_biz led me to a comment which led me to you all and, may I say, I like what you guys are doing. I count myself among those "dedicated LiveJournalers," or whatever the UserInfo is putting out a call for.

And I don't stir up drama, only love and admiration for the dear folks who run this site. As for the other end of the deal, that whole baking thing, I've just cooked up three batches of cookies tonight (coincidence? I say fate.) to bring to a kick ball game tomorrow organized by Decemberists fans... I could go on and on. But I make a wicked sugar cookie of my own creation and a very traditional chocolate chip and anything else that I may be called upon to craft.

So howabout throwing me into the rotation at some point? Nice to meet you all.

As per the recent acquisition, the LiveJournal office is moving!

So please don't send any further cookies to the old address. Sad! I don't know the new one off hand, I'll have to find out and then I'll post again when we figure out where we're supposed to go from here.

I just wanted to say thank you to everybody who's sent cookies. Oh man, the sugar highs we've endured! You folks are some damn fine bakers, and we've all been pretty happy about the steady supply of succulent sweets. Mmmm.

So -- I'll keep you posted after we figure out where to send further batches! :-)

Just curious about what this is all about. And what this would require of me. It sounds nice though, and something totally awesome.

I'm thinking I'd add you to early June, July, August, September, October, and November; leaving the mid- and late-month spots open for newcomers that find us in the meantime. Are you up for it?

And tested by the resident shortbread-lover.
They passed.

Sorry, I completely forgot to take pictures - maybe the guys at LJ will take some before the cookies get eaten?

Anyway, they'll go out zipzipzip on Monday morning.

Shortbread even.
But when they were done and we did our required taste test (and thank goodness we did) it turned out the Crisco was bad. Bah.

So today, to the store for more materials, and home to try again.

So they should hit the mail Monday sometime.

Hello All,

I heard of this commmunity via the LJ blackout thread, and I love baking! The only problem I can foresee is that I'm in the UK, and airmail shipping times are approximately 5 days to the states. Do you think this could be a problem? I'm trying to work out how long home baked cookies last! (They always get eaten very quickly in my house)

Do you think I'd be able to participate, being in the UK?

Okay, so I see that there is an opening mid-April. I'd be more than happy to fill it. I'm even taking a baking class at the local cooking school. And they'll be in SF by then.

So, um... yeah...

Hey, I'm new.

With the LJ blackout I mentioned how I wanted to send the staff cookies as thanks and got sent here!

Are there any plans for special shipment as thanks for their awesome work at getting everything back up so quickly?

Also:
I checked the memories and was wondering if this address is still kosher?
And when I send cookies (I'd like to be added to the rotation*) which label do I put inside?
this one?(I see it says bi-monthly shipment, and I see you have just recently switched to tri-monthly) or the one in the reply to this post?


*I'm going to be moving soon, but will be at my current residence for another week, after that I will need some time to settle into my new place before I can start baking again.

So. LJ's moving to San Fransisco. We're going to need a new mailing address.

Until we figure out their new address (and possibly, how many people are on their new support team...), I would like to recommend that we NOT send anymore cookies out. I don't want them to get returned.

Poll #413842 Status of CookiesForLJ

What should we do within the confines of our current scheduale?

Continue to send our baked goods to "old school" LJ staff only
6(42.9%)
integrate the new management team in
7(50.0%)

What should we do? (This involves re-working our scheduale)

Still send to "old school" LJ staff ONLY, but less frequently
2(12.5%)
Still send to "old school" LJ staff ONLY, but more frequently (new enviroment, etc)
4(25.0%)
Halt all shipments until we get clearance from new management
5(31.2%)
Halt all shipments indefinately until we see if LJ is still worth their cookies
2(12.5%)


If you have any other suggestions, please leave them in comments.

hazelchaz: Please check this poll in a week and a half and report the findings, if you can.

When we run into someone who can't afford to subsidize their own shipping but wants to bake anyway, we'll pay out the shipping charges. But so far we haven't had any expenditures.

When we started this project, there was some talk about trying to send cookies out weekly, but we didn't have enough bakers on board to do that for very long -- we'd all get burned out too quickly.

Do you guys think we're ready for moving things at a quicker pace?

We might go to three times a month - so we can put newcomers in the "mid-month" slots. If we did that, we could (for example) move lilacbtrfly to Mid-January, move benniferus to Mid-February, and since gretzilla expressed a preference for Late March we'd leave her there.

In general, when a baker had performed his or her baking duties and shipped cookies, they'd go back in the rotation towards the end -- giving them several months off -- but when a new baker joined cookiesforlj we'd be able to put them to work quickly.

I don't know what the schedule looks like, but in about 3 weeks, I'll be able to send out cookies if necessary. I'm home for about a month for break so I'll have access to an oven and post office. Christmas cookies are a big thing around this house, so what's everybody's favorites? I may send some anyway. :D
