Scone News - Hip Hop

I said-a hip-hop-hippity-hoppity…

Okay, maybe Mrs. Larkin should keep her day job and not try rapping, like Joaquin Phoenix. Good luck with that, Joaquin. But the Easter Bunny is really good at hip hop and he’s bound to be bigger than Lil’ Wayne. Keep your eyes open for Easter B. coming to a basket near you in a couple of weeks. His music video is jammin’. Check it:
Easter B

Anyone looking for Easter goodies can peruse the Spring 2009 Menu. Pick up only on April 11th, the Saturday before Easter. Just call about a week ahead to place your order. Check out the spring specials like the Burl Ives-inspired Lavender-Blue Dilly Dilly Scones. I took a bunch up to The Brookfield crew today and heard things like “very lovely floral undertones” and “inky/blue-colored berries with a classic terroir perfume of licorice, black currant liqueur, cedar, and spice.” Aw, heck, what they really said was “man, these are so good!” and “blueberries and lavender complement each other really well!”

And talk about sweet-tart – no, not the Botox-injected wannabe you saw jogging on the bike path in short-shorts, silly! I’m referring to my Key Lime Cupcakes – tangy, tart and really yummy. These will most definitely arouse your taste buds, and perhaps inspire you to take a walk on the bike path, too.

Scone News - Tighten Up

Sound the reveille! Mrs. Larkin’s Newsletter is back from hibernation! Boy, was it nice to take a couple months off. From writing my email, that is. Not from scone baking, which is a frequent occurrence here, dormant state or not. I must admit some days are more productive than others, like one day last month when I thought nothing of drinking a full pot of high-test coffee made with my new French press pot I got for Christmas. Haven’t pulled an all-nighter in a long while. But I did get a ton of stuff done that day!

So this year we’re all about tightening our belts, budgets, pocket books, bank accounts, wads, fists, lips, waistlines and so on. But rest assured, you can still get one of Mrs. Larkin’s honkin’ scones at the Pound Ridge Farmers Market starting April 19th. Same delicious, truly scrumptious scones. A virtual plethora of yummy goodiness awaits you. Meantime, please stop in and visit Near & Natural in Bedford Village and the Sunoco station in Pound Ridge to get your hands on one of these buttery babies. I hear they’re pretty darn good.
