The weather's great & there's change in the air

For some reason I'm suddenly getting a torrent of annoying sales calls despite having signed up for the national "do not call" list. Today I discovered that there is also a Florida "do not call" registry and it only takes a minute to add your name & number. I did it and it will become effective as of July. If you're experiencing the same problem, their website is 

It's a time of transition for me. The tenants at my former bakery/cafe in the Village of the Arts have closed their business, leaving me with an empty building. But not for long. After a thorough cleaning, I'll be opening a POP-UP SHOP featuring all of the items I've collected over a lifetime, and am now ready to relinquish. Antiques, kitchenware, Spanish dishes, pharmacy collectibles, baskets, frames and a lot more. It will only be open for a short period of time. Look for details in my blog next week. If you're looking for something in particular, let me know because I have a LOT OF STUFF!

Meanwhile, here's what I'm cooking up in the kitchen this week.

Blueberry Cream Cheese Braid   $3/slice

It's blueberry season in Florida, so what could be more appropriate than a slice of this yummy braided pastry embracing local berries & a creamy cheese filling.

Cheddar Mini Boule   $2.50/each

Back by popular demand, the small French breads bursting with oozing cheese. Perfect when shared or sliced, but known to make a filling meal for one.

Also on the menu this week:

Big Cookies   $1.50/each
Individually wrapped & available in the following flavors:
Chocolate Chip, Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip, Orange Dark Chocolate Walnut, Oatmeal Raisin Walnut, Pecan Coconut Milk Chocolate       

Chocolate Orgasm Cookies   $5/pkg
My legendary chocolate delivery system made from melted Belgium Bittersweet chocolate, toasted fresh almonds & chocolate chips. Available in a plain brown bag if you don't intend to share them with others.

Roast Garlic Blue Cheese Breadstix   $4/pkg
Crisp, hand-made sticks bursting with flavor. Delicious paired with an appetizer, soup, salad or cocktail. 

Cranberry Orange Muffin   $2/each
One of my most requested muffins, made with plump fresh cranberries and Florida oranges.

Spiced Pumpkin Seed Flatbread   $4/pkg
Irregular large shards of crisp flatbread adds drama to your bread basket or can be broken into smaller crackers.
