Scone News - Check Out my Tweets

What a great weekend! It was really nice seeing all of you who stopped by the scone stand. I am so grateful for your kind words and your continued patronage! And welcome to all the new folks on the email list.

Say, how’s about a free scone? Then come play the
Secret Word of the Day game with Mrs. Larkin! Here’s how it goes: Mrs. Larkin will Tweet her Secret Word of the Day every Sunday morning. The first two (2) people to come to the scone stand that same day and tell her the Secret Word of the Day wins one (1) free scone! Oh, and when telling Mrs. Larkin the Secret Word of the Day, you must use Secret Word of the Day in a sentence. Any questions? What’s a Tweet, you say? Go to and you can take a peek at Mrs. Larkin’s Tweets. Become a follower of Mrs. Larkin’s on Twitter and you’ll divine all the mysteries of the scone world. Or at the very least see what I’m cooking up at the moment. Or ask me a baking-related question, in 140 characters or less, and me and my minions will give it a go.

Come early for better selections. And your chance to win a free scone! No lollygagging, people! Scones go fast. Pound Ridge Farmers Market every Sunday at 11:00 a.m. on the patio of Antiques and Tools of Business and Kitchen, 65 Westchester Avenue.

Now I gotta think of a good word…

Scone News - Yo Mama So Hungry

Thanks to everyone who came out in the rain last Sunday. Mrs. Larkin took off right quick when the scones started getting wet. Nothing worse than a wet scone, unless you’re dunking it into a cup of Mrs. Larkin’s mighty fine java. I met some newly addicted scone fans, who said I’m doing a world of good for the scone ecosystem in Westchester. Wow.

Let me tell you about the rave reviews the new Cinn-ful Scone got. Turns out it’s quickly becoming the new fav. It’s a scone with a multiple personality disorder…part scone, part cinnamon roll, part coffee cake. It’s bad (in a sugary good way.) It’s good (in a sugary good way.) Maybe we shoulda named it the Sybil scone. I kinda like Cinn-ful though. It’s catchy. Kinda naughty. Different. And interesting. So if you’d like to show Mom and all of her alter egos how much you love them, pick up a Cinn-ful Scone this Sunday, May 10th.

Not that there’s anything remotely funny about chemical addictions, BUT…..Mrs. Larkin’s highly addictive Crispy Chocolate Chip Cookies are now available down on the corner at the Sunoco CafĂ©. (do you like how I’ve upgraded the ambiance by not saying gas station?) So if your brain desperately needs a cookie and you’re looking for a fix, stop in. Code words are “the scone lady sent me.” Karen and Tim will fix you up lickety split. And you’ll feel good in no time.

Hope to see you on Mother’s Day at the Pound Ridge Farmers Market, where I’ll be working my patootee off, hawking my baked goods, when I should be laying on the couch eating bonbons, and having Mr. Larkin peel me grapes. (is the guilt mojo working? I guess I’ll find out on Sunday.)

P.S. Mrs. Larkin is all a-Twitter. Check out her Twitter page and become a follower! Sounds so cult-ish, doesn’t it? Just don’t drink the kool-aid and you’ll be fine.
