A New Friend!

Early in July, Offspring3 was pet sitting for a neighbor. The family asked me to pick up their Community Farm Share for that week (Offspring3 not licensed yet). We stopped on the way to Offspring3’s job on a Thursday afternoon, and met the nicest couple working the pickup booth. They had pretzel bread from a local bakery, and I commented that it looked sad (it was in plastic, so the condensation melted the salt). I told them I had a great recipe, and the woman asked me to share.

So, the next Thursday rolled around, and I made Brezen Semmel, printed the recipe, and we stopped by the pickup booth again with rolls and the printed recipe. I think the couple was a little surprised that I actually remembered my promise and followed through.

This past week, the lovely woman and I got together (not at the pickup booth!), and she surprised me with BEAUTIFUL AND DELICIOUS sunflower cupcakes! Holy Guacamole!

I cannot tell a lie…they are all gone, and I won the consumption race.  😉

Turns out, my new friend makes cakes as a hobby. Check out her work!


Thanks so much, Kristen!

  1. I recognize that Lenox china pattern! Very mid eighties. I have a 12 place settings if you ever need to borrow for an event.
