Girl Scouts of New Mexico Trails 2011 Cookie Caper
I’m polishing up my tasting spoons and getting ready for one of the sweetest gigs around. Author Anne Hillerman, along with chef/owner Christophe Descarpentries of P’tit Louis Bistro, will be joining me at the judges’ table for this year’s Cookie Caper. The gala fundraiser helps to support programs and activities for more than 5,000 girls throughout the New Mexico Trails Council.
