This coming weekend is an opportunity for you to become the Great & Powerful OZ. It's the annual STUDIO TOUR in the Village of the Arts when you get to look behind the curtain to see how things are created. It takes place Fri Feb 21 & Sat Feb 22 from 12-4pm and a list of participating galleries will be available for your self-guided tour. More info available at www.villageofthearts.com
I'll be demonstrating, sampling & answering baking questions in the kitchen of my TreeHouse this Friday from 12-4, when customers can also pick-up their pre-0rdered items.
|COME THROUGH THE WHITE GATE|
|ENTRANCE TO MY TREEHOUSE|
Come to 932 12th St W, walk through the white iron gate in the driveway to the 2 story house in back. Please stop by.
Sometimes a cooking experiment has an unexpected outcome. Mike brought me tangerines from his father's organically grown tree. I made Tangerine Lemon Marmalade but it wound up tasting bitter, due to all of the hand cut rind that took forever to do. I had invested too much time to walk away. Instead I added fresh pineapple & cranberries to balance the flavor, but it was still too tangy for my taste.
I gave Mike a jar to try and he cleverly used it as a marinade with pork, with outstanding results. Last night I thought I'd try it too. I seared seasoned chops quickly in a hot pan on top of the stove. Then I coated both sides with marinade & finished cooking them in the oven. The marinade melted & caramelized onto the meat. Served with additional marinade on top, it provided a fruity tangy sauce for the meat & was delicious!! Now available for you as Tropical Tangerine Marinade.
I hope to see you at the Village of the Arts Friday 12-4 or at Palma Sola Farmers Market Sunday 11-3, where last week there were 14 baby goats to play with...
don't miss the newest batch this week & the freshest organic veggies grown on the farm.
Here's what I'm baking this week:
MORNING GLORY MUFFIN $2
Carrot, pineapple, apple, walnuts, raisins, coconut, sunflower seeds & whole wheat flour add up to a healthy delicious muffin that you can grab on the go & still find satisfying. Or choose to savor it very slowly.
BANANA CHOCOLATE CHIP mini MUFFIN 2 for $1
The yummy marriage of ripe bananas and melting chocolate in a delicate little muffin. Just the right size for an adult nibble and perfect for little kid fingers to handle on their own. And did I mention they're cute!
NYC JEWISH APPLE CAKE $3/slice
CHOCOLATE ORGASM COOKIES $5/pkg
BROOKLYN BIALYS [VEGAN] $3.50/pkg of 4
I've been visualizing breakfast with a stack of Brooklyn bialys waiting to be toasted & shmeared with cream cheese. Topped with chopped scallions, garden tomatoes & nova, this week my fantasy comes true.
ROSEMARY PARMIGIANO BREADSTIX $4/pkg
Enjoy the way the imported Parmigiano Reggiano cheese marries with the fresh picked rosemary from my garden...plus they stay crunchy down to the last bite! Perfect as a snack or alongside soup, salad or a drink.
HOMEMADE JAMS & CHUTNEYS $4/ jar
Cranberry Pear, Berry Basket, Blueberry Lemon, Mango Chutney, Ginger Pear Chutney and Tropical Tangerine Marinade (see description above). Now that Plant City strawberries are here, I've added new batches of Strawberry Mango Cardamom and Strawberry Balsamic Black Pepper (wonderful with sharp cheese as an appetizer).
Everything always hand-made in small batches with the best ingredients & locally sourced when possible. No artificial flavors, colors, preservatives or fake stuff EVER!!
