A Celebration of Life and Love (A Pie for Mikey)

I wish I had a navigation program for life. It’d be so easy…I’d click the little app button on my phone, and the computer lady’s voice would come on telling me don’t do that, do this…go here, follow this path…warning me when bad shit’s about to happen. But life is not easily steerable. And, sometimes, it’s hard to fucking move at all. Like in my first car back in the 80s, a beige Buick Skylark with bench seats, when it lost the power steering fluid. I needed the power of Zeus to turn the goddamn wheel. You get stuck sometimes. Most times, this thought keeps things in perspective and helps: things could be worse. But once in a while, that worse thing smacks you in the face and knocks you down with no warning whatsoever. And how do you get through? I don’t know. It hurts like nobody’s business and it seems like that pain will never go away.

But it does get ever-so-slightly less painful, in time. And then you begin to move again. And you get your steering fixed. And you hug your loved ones. And you make pie.

Happy Easter, Peeps!

Thanks so much for coming out to the Pound Ridge Farmers Market last Sunday! It was PACKED! And I sold out around 2, which made me very happy.

Seems like you all enjoyed the Pound Ridge Chicks. One of my customers described them as “like a jelly donut, but fancier.” I like that.

For Easter, I’ll be taking orders for Lemon-Raspberry Cupcakes with Marshmallow Peeps and/or Cadbury Mini Eggs. FYI, those Cadbury Mini Eggs are amazing. They remind me of the chocolate eggs I used to get at the Italian bakery when I was little, with the crispy sugar shell and the coating of chocolate inside. And the marshmallow peeps? Well, they’re just peep-freakin-tastic. Orders are pick up only next Saturday, April 23rd. Cupcakes are $2 each. Minimum order 1 dozen. Call me! Or email.

I will NOT be at the Farmers Market the next two Sundays. It’s Easter time in this Christian household, so we’ll be celebrating by going to church, eating a bunch of stuff like bunnies (the chocolate kind) and lamb (the real kind), coloring hard boiled eggs, and looking for Easter baskets filled with totally unnecessary tchotchkes and more candy to replenish the dwindling Halloween/Christmas/Valentine’s Day stash.

Should you need scones for Easter morning, just give me a holler, and you can pick those up on the Saturday before Easter as well.

Oh, and holla Mt. Kisco! FRANNIE'S GOODIE SHOP, the fabu self-serve fro-yo place next to the movie theatre, is now carrying Mrs. Larkin’s baked goods. Make sure to stop in and grab yourself a tasty treat!

I’ll be back at the Farmers Market on May 1st, which sounds crazy, cause that means this year is close to half over already. Yeesh. See you soon!
