The Story Behind our Seasonal Specials...

For years, starting in November Brenda and I would pack up all our wares and haul heavy boxes full of goodies all over Austin to church bazaars and other venues.  Sometimes the sales were phenomenal, sometimes lousy.  Last year we decided we could do just as well decorating our homes for the holidays and holding the sales there.  We simply publish the dates on our website, and our regulars let all their friends know.

 

We usually make around 200 loaves of bread for the holidays.  At first, we always had enough left over to make gift baskets for our family, but those days are gone.  If you try our Banana Bread or Jalapeno Cheese Beer Bread youíll never go back to any other.  Our Pumpkin Patch Bread is made from fresh pumpkins roasted in the oven.  The Lemon Cranberry Bread is moist and so pretty when you cut into it.  The breads are perfect for taking that little something to a neighborhood or work party. Just grab it from the freezer and go!

 

Last year the tomatoes from our garden started ripening in March and we had tomatoes until November.  The peppers were harvested at a similar rate and the abundance was overwhelming.  What Iím saying is I had to get creative with tomatoes and peppers!  So we made jelly!  The 3 Pepper Jelly (jalapeno, ancho and bell) and Summer Tomato Jelly are delightful spooned on top of cream cheese and served with crackers.

 

About the time I finished canning the summer crop, my dear friend brought in a bucket full of Mustang grapes.  More jelly!  Blanco County Mustang Grape Jelly is  a favorite! I went through 12 cases of jars and ran out of the pepper and tomato jelly around Christmas time.  Not to worry, itís June and Iím looking at a kitchen counter covered with peppers.

 

We stock up on our dazzling glittered Christmas stockings, and  our decorated Potpourri Cakes are adorable sitting on the kitchen counter.  Your holiday visitors wonít believe itís not the real thing!  Spritz the cakes occasionally with the Vanilla spray we provide and I promise the smell fills your home with a yummy holiday scent. Hang one of our beautifully decorated wreaths and make up one of our Cookie Baker Kits and round up the neighbors!

 

You must see our Ginger Bread Houses!  They have stained glass windows and lights.  They even play Christmas music.  If cared for properly you can display them year after year.  Fascinating for kids and grownups, too!
