My last week in Bradenton before...

I set off for southern India, by way of New York City. It will be fun to spend a couple of days experiencing the new Brooklyn artisan food scene, see my extraordinary kids, inhale cold air, drive in traffic, wear a real jacket and eat street food while walking down the street. I LOVE NEW YORK

This Sunday is the Super Bowl, so naturally I've been thinking about appropriate food to accompany the game. At the top of my list is something delicious that you can casually eat while starring at the screen. One of the most popular items on my BONNIBAKES BAKERY/CAFE MENU was Stromboli with Dipping Sauce. I'm going to make 15" Stromboli logs, which can be put into an oven to heat & crisp, then cut into slices. A thin slice makes a tasty snack, while 2 1/2" slabs serve 6 as an entree. Anything left over can be frozen. My homemade Red Tomato Dipping Sauce is available separately. 

Choose from vegetarian Florentine Stromboli (spinach, tomato, onions, garlic, olives, mozzarella,  basil & parmigiano) or Pizza Stromboli (tomato, pepperoni, mozzarella, oregano & parmigiano). 
15" Stromboli $20       12 oz Squirt Bottle w/Sauce $5 
 Special Order only

This week's loaf is Minorcan MultigrainIt's VEGAN, a traditional round sandwich loaf, studded inside & out with poppy, sesame, flax & pumpkin seeds. Since a lot of people will be making finger food, it can also be ordered as a baguette. Slice it into thin rounds & serve alongside your appetizers & dips.
Minorcan Loaf $4.50    Baguette $3     Special Order only

Round out your crunchy snacks with the amazing flavors of Roasted Garlic Blue Cheese or Rosemary Parmigiano Breadstix. Or put a dollop of my Strawberry Balsamic Black Pepper Jam on a wedge of Brie, seated on a cracker. Yum!

When it comes to muffins, I'm going to leave you with an all-time favorite, Cranberry Orange. Wonderful fresh orange flavor throughout & punctuated with loads of bursting fresh cranberries. Nothing dried up here.

Of course there's nothing wrong with giving your sweetie a suggestive early VALENTINE SURPRISE. No matter what they say, ain't no one who doesn't smile when they open a package of CHOCOLATE ORGASMS. And they're usually very grateful!! I'll be in India by Feb 14th, so this is your last chance to stock up. I hate to see grown folks cry, so order yours by Wed at 5pm to make sure you won't be disappointed.
