If you missed Frida Kahlo parading through the Village of the Arts last year, you've got another chance!! Artist Anna D'Aste's giant puppet will be part of the Festival of the Skeletons Parade Friday night Nov. 7th. Bring your friends & family to share the Mexican holiday with us. The galleries are all open from 6-9:30pm, and many have handmade altars dedicated to someone they love who has died. BONNI BAKES will have an altar outside dedicated to Muffin, our wonderful Bearded Collie Mix, who died July 12, 2011 at age 14.
While he was alive, he served as Chairman of the Board & Head Taster for BONNI BAKES FOR FURRY FRIENDS. I created an assortment of doggie snacks & he tested every batch for quality assurance without complaining. He was a very hard worker! To honor his memory I've baked one of his favorite snacks and will have free samples for you to take home to your puppy. I miss you Muffin!
I'll also be decorating skeleton cookies of folks & animals in the Mexican tradition. Stop by my driveway at 932 12th St and see what else I've got. Enjoy Mexican food, a Community Altar dedicated to Georgia O'Keefe & remember your loved one at the Memory Wall. For more details, see the listing on the home page of the Village of the Arts at www.villageofthearts.com
Just a reminder.
or during the ArtWalk with advance notice
CRANBERRY PECAN CORN MUFFIN $2It's the magical combination of a buttery corn muffin dotted with cranberries and toasted pecans. I love mine toasted with a hint of jam. How do you like yours?
My legendary chocolate delivery system made from melted Belgium Bittersweet chocolate, toasted fresh almonds, chocolate chips & very little flour. Sold in packages of 4 because you must have more than one.
SPICED PUMPKIN SEED FLATBREAD $4/pkg
A seasonal favorite snack that is equally at home in a bread basket, alongside a bowl of soup or on a cheese platter. Mega crunchy with spiced pumpkin seeds within, and toasted poppy & sesame seeds outside.
NEW YORK ONION ROLLS $3.50/pkg of 4
Known & beloved by most New Yorkers over a certain age. Once easy to find, but now I have to bake some to enjoy that delicious oniony flavor, enhanced by chopped onion & poppy topping.
SESAME CHEDDAR BREAD $5/loaf
This flavorful soft bread makes a wonderful sandwich, but it truly shines as part of the Best Grilled Cheese Sandwich Ever! Its Cheddar shreds melt & sesame seeds toast as it embraces the runny cheese inside.

No artificial flavors, colors, preservatives or fake stuff EVER!!
