Celebrate Festival of Skeletons this Friday night in the Village of the Arts
It's that time of year again when nights get cooler; apple & pumpkin flavors are featured; Palma Sola Sunday Farmers Market reopens; Mexico celebrates its Dia de los Muertes and Village of the Arts November ArtWalk celebrates Festival of the Skeletons. Put on your cumbia music, optional costume and join us as we remember Frida Kahlo at the community shrine at 12th St W/11th Ave W. Then walk around & see the shrines at  individual galleries, including the one I'm doing at BONNI BAKES GALLERY (930 12th St W) to honor people & pets I've loved, who are gone. It's so big that I had to bring it inside! We'll also have the limited edition FESTIVAL OF THE SKELETONS T-SHIRTS for sale.

Maria is back this year with an extended menu of her real Mexican food. I hope to find the time to bake something special in the Mexican holiday tradition. 

Maria & I are regular vendors at the Palma Sola Farmers Market, reopening Sunday from 11-3. It's located in NW Bradenton at Geraldson's Community Farm, our local organic CSA. You'll also find goat yogurt, cheese & milk from Yokers Wilde Hatchery and Dairy Goats (plus baby goats jumping about); Dave's local honey; fish from Island Fresh Market AMI; hot pepper products from Sawyer Jalapenos, and lots of delicious fresh organic produce. More information at their Facebook page:

Once there click on their address to get a map & directions. 
With so much going on, I don't have enough time to bake loaves of bread this week. Hold that thought until next week.

Here's what I am baking this week:

Jewish Apple Cake
Jewish Apple Cake   $3/slice
An honest old fashioned cake, loaded with fresh apples slices enrobed with cinnamon/sugar. Not overly sweet, just like Grandma used to bake. At home 
with a steaming cup of coffee or a glass of tea Russian style.

Cinnamon Sugar Snickerdoodle Cookie
Big Cookies   $1.50/each
Individually wrapped & available in the following flavors:
Chocolate Chip, Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip, Orange Belgium Dark Chocolate Walnut, Oatmeal Raisin Walnut, Pecan Coconut Belgium Milk Chocolate, (NEW) Classic Snickerdoodle     

The answer to a chocoholic's prayers
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 with others.

All Breadstix are mixed and shaped by hand
A Mixed Bag of Breadstix   $4/pkg
Sometimes it's hard to decide which flavor of Breadstix you love the most. Now you don't have to choose, you can have them all! Rosemary Parmigiana, Kalamata Feta, and Roast Garlic Blue Cheese. Great on their own or the perfect partner to soup, salad or dip.
Pumpkin Date Nut Muffin   $2
A toothsome rich muffin with the background flavors of pumpkin & warm spices studded with plump dates, raisins and roasted walnuts. A great way to welcome the season!

You'll know why they're OUTRAGEOUS as soon as you take a bite
Outrageous Walnut Brownies  $2.50
The moist deep chocolate interior is a nice counterpoint to the shiny thin crust that holds in the cake and  toasted walnuts. If you like cake brownies, these are NOT for you.

Ten unique flavors to choose from
Homemade Jam & Chutney   $4/8 oz jar
Peach Mango Brandy, Mango Strawberry Cardamom, Blueberry Lime, Mango Chutney, Mango Meyer Lemon Lime, Pineapple Mango Rum, Peach Melba, Mixed Berry, Blueberry Lemon, Ginger Pear Chutney.

          Everything always hand-made in small batches with the best ingredients & locally       sourced when possible. No artificial flavors, colors, preservatives or fake stuff EVER!!
