New beginnings

Daniel and I are embarking on new experiences in the new year. We are expecting a baby in August! We are very excited about him or her. So we have yet more home repairs/remodelings to add to the list.

I am not sure now whether I will be returning to Belhaven Market. I am still in business however. I have been working on a few orders.

I have been baking for the wonderful Coffeeshop at Eudora Welty's birthplace. It is located on Congress Street and is a fun place. Go check it out and have a ginger chewie or a wholesome & yummy muffin. I am having a lot of fun doing that. I will be exploring new muffin possibilities soon. Right now I have baked Sour Cream Peach and Banana Nut, both 100% whole grain. I hope to continue baking for them as long as they want me to bake. I spent some time this morning looking at some fun new ways to package muffins without breaking the bank. There are some creative people out there.

If you want to order anything send me an email. I hope all my readers are having a great new year.

I survived

Hi to my friends out there. I hope you had a wonderful holiday season. My family did. Every year somehow they just get busier.

I wanted to thank my customers for their patience. I was blessed with a lot of business this year, and I am very grateful for that. I am also very grateful for my patient customers who put up with my incompetence as I scrambled to meet everyone's orders and try to prepare for my family's Christmas. It was really a mad rush. I enjoyed being a part of my customer's Christmas, so thank you again for making it a possibility for me to do what I love.

This is a basket that I assembled for a friend's aunt. I have cookies, bread, and gourmet cheese (I can not claim to have made the cheese). I can make these baskets any time of the year. Just give me enough notice (1-2 weeks).
