Busy Baking!

Busy Baking!

Yes, I realize I’ve fallen off the track and haven’t posted anything about food in a very long time. So, here we are!

My friend Mercedes came over one night and we baked up a storm!

We also wrapped Mike in garland and wore ugly Christmas sweaters. Needless to say we know how to make a long night of baking into quite the event.

In the bottom left photo we have: Milk chocolate and white chocolate swirl almond candy-cane bark.

In the bottom right photo: ginger snap cookies and festively-shaped red velvet cakes with cream cheese icing.

We also baked candy cane shortbread cookies and a few pie crusts to fill with deliciousness later on. A few days later I made an apple pie as well.

I hope everyone is enjoying the season and getting excited for Christmas day! T-minus 8 days ’til we can open presents!

Stay classy,

Farmer’s Market Haul

Farmer's Market Haul

Now to give a little bit more background on what we do at the Farmer’s Market i’ve got to say we go almost every Saturday and sometimes Sundays to another market for our weekly produce.

Saturdays are mainly devoted to the Downtown Edmonton market and sometimes the Strathcona market.

We have only gone on one Sunday to market after I discovered a French Market in the heart of the Edmonton Francophone community called La Cite’ Francophone over by Bonnie Doon Mall. It was a lot of fun with French music playing, a small bistro/cafe’ and an area to sit and enjoy the morning.

This picture is of our haul from one of our days going to the downtown market.

Here we have:

~concord grapes
~fresh garlic
~medley of wild mushrooms
~carrots
~yellow watermelon
~peaches
~yellow beets
~cherry tomatoes
~red plums
~yellow and green cauliflower
~zebra tomatoes

One of our best produce days yet!

Stay classy,

~E
