I think I'm in charge of my life, but obviously still influenced by old tv shows

It's BABY GOAT SEASON, and not just in my back yard. 

Stop by the Palma Sola Farmers Market Sundays from 11-3 and you're apt to enjoy the antics of 5 week old triplet kids who are excited to explore their new world. They love to run, jump and munch on anything that looks yummy. 

The ribbons on my sign attracted them, but in the end they preferred chewing wood chips. Bring the family & even young children can gently hug a baby goat. They're very friendly and Glenna can answer all of your questions & fix you up with goat cheese and milk from their Myakka farm. Come early to get the best selection of organic veggies grown right here at the farm.

Aren't these radishes beautiful...& you'll also find Daikons to pair with incredibly sweet carrots & turn into pickles for your Bahn Mi sandwich. Ryan is particularly proud of his wall of lettuces. Everything is just picked...can you say that Publix?

Remember the classic "Seinfeld" episode that had Elaine baking muffins and just selling the tops? Last Sunday I decided to bake Cranberry Corn Muffin Tops, which have been on my radar for a long time. Of course, as a New Yorker & dedicated "Seinfeld" fan, that episode kept playing in my head as I baked. As opposed to Elaine's great dilemma of trying to get rid of all her muffin stumps, I used muffin top pans, so there was nothing extra to dispose of. That proved to be a great disappointment for my dog Twinkie. I loved eating them well toasted with homemade jam slathered on top. This week I'm making a batch featuring fresh blueberries. Details below.

Here's what I'm baking this week:

Morning Glory Muffin  $2
The delicious combination of whole wheat, carrots, nuts, coconut, pineapple, apple and orange in a single muffin. Whole grain + fruit + veggie = perfect & filling for breakfast or a snack anytime.

Created in the 70's, they've become a classic

Blueberry Corn Muffin Tops  $3/pkg
The perfect partner to a quick breakfast alongside cereal, eggs or coffee. Toast it until the outside is crunchy for best flavor. Two muffin tops per package so you can share or not.

Toasted Muffin Top with Cranberry Pear Jam...yummy
Florentine Stromboli  $20  [special order only]     SOLD OUT
