Where or where has Carol been?

Deep in sorting and cleaning my house! I'm finding some really good stuff that will be making its way to the shop in the weeks to come. Will take pictures when I get it organized.

Those of you who have been to the shop know that we give a printed recipe away each month for something yummy for you to make. Here's a sneak preview of the one for March. It came to me via customers Ron and Gail from Sunnyvale who got it from someone else. He swears it's the best Apple Cake there is! I haven't made it yet but I'm going to. You can try the recipe from here or pick it up at the shop starting March 1st.


4 cups chopped apples*
2 tsp baking soda
1 cup canola oil**
1/2 tsp salt
2 eggs
2 tsp cinnamon
2 cups flour
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups sugar
1 cup chopped nuts

Add ingredients as listed. Pour into ungreased 11- x 13-inch pan and bake @ 350° for an hour or until caked is nice and brown in color and middle of cake is done.

* DO NOT peel apples
** You might want to reduce amount of oil as a matter of preference (perhaps 3/4 cup for a touch drier cake)

We just got a cute sign in at the store that says "I'm not bossy I just have better ideas" Gets a laugh out of everyone. The sign below made me laugh. We don't sell it at the shop "YET" but maybe I'll have to make some to sell with this saying on it.

Whooooo needs a cute timer? Maybe you? These little owls come in yellow, blue and red. They have only been in the shop for a week and they are "flying" off the shelf.
One Mom bought one to use as a time out timer. She didn't say if it was for her or the kid.

If you have little kids or kids at heart you make valentines for, these are pretty cute. You can go to this blog to download and print the jar and then buy some bugs at the craft store to glue on. Glue dots would work really well. You can get those at the craft stores too. Get the removable ones. Wouldn't this be fun for a teacher to hand out to her class? Anyway click here to be taken to the site.
