If it would have been around meal time, I would have definitely stopped at their deli to grab a bite. Or their bakery, for a "dessert only" meal. Just look at the goods!
I had a few things in mind that I wanted to look for, and for the most part found all of it. Although I could have probably spent more $$$$ and more time there....
I'm anxious to try the agave nectar in my oatmeal, and other baking related items. And check out the Larabars! I've never seen the "dessert" kind - I snagged a German Chocolate and a Chocolate Mint one. I'll be sure to let you know how they taste:) The garlic hummus (not pictured) was very good as well. I dove into that with some of Stacy's Garlic & Herb Pita Chips. Yum! I will tell you though.....I did have to explain to my husband what hummus was....he wasn't that impressed. Other items I snagged were Jalapeno Food Should Taste Good Chips, some organic garlic herb salt, and some almond butter with honey.
Oh, and the best part was today. Little man and I went to my nephew's basketball game. In between games we all went out for lunch and since my niece's birthday was a few days ago, my mom (as always) baked the cake. She always asks what cake we want (mine is ALWAYS yellow cake with chocolate frosting), and my niece usually picks my mom's coconut cake, but this time she told Grandma to "do whatever you want". So my mom picked a new recipe - something chiffon....can't quite remember the exact title....sorry. Anyway it had four layers with cherry and chocolate bits and tons of light, creamy frosting in between each layer. I thought it was great! Some people weren't as fond of it as me, but I certainly thought is was a keeper. Here it is before we dug in.
Did your mom bake your birthday cake growing up?
Still do it today? Or did you order one from a bakery?
