End of season of Pot Pies + Chocolate Chip Specialty Cookie

Stock up on your Pot Pies. We are making them for 2 more weeks (available until Easter week). Then we won’t have them again until next Christmas!

We made an Adult Chocolate Chip cookie this week as a treat. It has dark chocolate chunks, macadamia nuts, orange zest and a hint of Kirsch (French cherry liquor). The Kirsch mainly blends all the flavors and makes all the tastes more vibrant. (No its not because you get drunk eating the cookie — the alcohol bakes off!) Come in and try one (before we eat them all. Lol!)

Food to Feed the Soul

We made special things this week, anticipating tomorrow–food to feed the soul and  nourished a sense of happier days. Peach pie and cherry cobbler. Or a delicious (if i say so myself) french macaroon filled with ice cream (Christinas, or DF.) I ate a DF one today, and for awhile felt happy.  So come on down for a cup of  tea and a snack, or we can throw a pizza into the oven for you. Fortify yourself for Sat, which is really the big day that matters. 💕
