Over the years, I have changed from buying Christmas gifts to making them, and that means hours of baking. Last year I sent about 12 relatives and friends an original recipe of mine - a zuchhini bread. I only heard from about half of them that they actually got it, liked it and thank you! I like to bake and give the loaves, but I really don't want to keep sending them without at least an acknowledment. Maybe they don't like it. Maybe I am wasting time on something they would rather not get.
How do I gracefully ask - hey, did you get the bread? DO you even like it?
Someone told me of a cute note her grandmother would send with the CHristmas cookies she would bake and give, saying something like I hope you like the cookies as much as I had fun making them, and if you want to stay or be a member of my cookie club please reply back to me that you received these, and if you want to get more next year. How can I tactfully say that? Any ideas?
thank you! Mary the Baker
