Happy Yummy Holidays from Bonni Bakes

This is the last week in 2013 that I'll be baking for you. Growing up, December was filled with multiple birthdays & anniversaries for my family. December 22 would have been my Dad's 108th birthday. Thinking about him makes me smile because he had the best sense of humor I've ever known. When he & his brother whispered dirty jokes over the phone, each one roared uncontrollably for five minutes. I don't think it had anything to do with whether it was funny or not. They just loved telling each other jokes. Here's what I'm baking in his honor.

Brooklyn Pletzl   $4/pkg
A Sunday morning favorite, this classic Jewish flatbread from Flatbush is a stretched dough sprinkled with salt, sauteed onion & poppy seeds. Softer at the edges, crackling in the center. Schmear with butter, cream cheese or memories. 

With Christmas almost around the corner, I'm creating hand decorated 7" sugar cookie versions of Santa's reindeer (well, maybe they look like a moose without your reading glasses). Each one is inspired by the whimsical colorful reindeer my son Rob created in Larchmont, the year the hurricane hit & we three were snowbound. Of course, I like his painted version better.

Santa's 7" Reindeer/Moose Cookie   $4/in holiday bag
Who says size doesn't matter? If you order in advance, I can "write" someone's name on your reindeer/moose to personalize it. Otherwise, they'll be available for pick-up sans name.

Toasted Sesame Cheddar Loaf    $5
This bread makes the BEST grilled cheese sandwich you've ever  had. With tons of toasted sesame seeds throughout, and a healthy dose of Cheddar cheese, this soft flavorful loaf is fabulous toasted.

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

Chocolate Orgasm Cookies   $5/pkg
My legendary chocolate delivery system made from melted Belgium Bittersweet chocolate, toasted fresh almonds & chocolate chips. It's holiday time, so order early before they disappear.

Kalamata Olive & Feta Breadstix   $4/pkg
The perfect sidekick to nibble alongside your favorite beverage, salad, soup or dip. Enhance whatever you're eating with the Mediterranean flavors of Greek olives, Feta cheese and organic oregano from my garden. Crunchy down to their nibs.

Cranberry Pecan Corn Muffin  $2
Enjoy the blend of a slightly sweet corn muffin studded with tart cranberries and the crunch of toasted pecans. Sounds perfect to me!

Homemade Jams & Chutneys   $4/ jar
Cranberry Pear (new), Mango Strawberry Cardamom, Blueberry Lime, Mango Chutney, Pineapple Mango Rum, Peach Melba, Berry Basket, Blueberry Lemon, Ginger Pear Chutney.

My very cute 4 year old Maltese/mix dog Twinkie is looking for someone to host her for the week Dec 27-Jan3, when her mommy (me) goes off to Mexico to celebrate surviving 70 years on this planet with my wonderful human kids.

Because Twinkie was adopted from Animal Services two years ago, she doesn't want to spend a week in a cage. Do you know someone who could doggie sit or a very responsible person who would like to spend a week at our house in Bradenton over New Year's? Not looking for freebees. Email if you have suggestions. Thanks!!
