Hearing from viewers at home is always special but when there is a viewer who is not only far away from home but also serving his country, it really touches Rach’s heart. 

Captain Kevin Frawley of Unit 3321, Field Artillery Regiment is a soldier stationed in the Middle East who watches Rach on the Armed Forces Network. He says his unit’s cooks prepare three daily meals for almost 400 soldiers, and over time, have learned to “spice things up” with provisions provided to them through the army system.

Captain Frawley asked Rach to help the hardworking cooks develop some new recipes for the soldiers to enjoy, but she did something even better. She sent them a care package with waffle irons (another base has waffle irons, and these guys were jealous!), all of her cookbooks, her magazines, and snacks. The snacks are because, as Rachael says, snacking while cooking is a tradition in her family!
