Holidays in the Kitchen

Hello my dear foodie friends!

I hope this post finds you doing well. I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving, spent around your kitchen table with family and friends. I was lucky enough to have my college kids home for a few days, and my flight attendant daughter home this week. I had a few days of overlap where I had all three home together and I cherished every minute of it.

I LOVE Thanksgiving (it’s my favorite holiday) but now that it’s over, I have to get ready for all the kitchen happenings in December. I also want to remind you all to place your holiday orders SOON! Cookies, cupcakes, cakes, gifts for teachers, co-workers, clients, neighbors, anyone you want to spoil this holiday season with a treat from the kitchen! Just remember to place that order SOON. How soon, you ask? TODAY, lol. Contact me for details. I’ll be baking up until December 21. After that, the kitchen will be closed until the new year.

My calendar is filling fast, and the month starts off in Haymarket, at the annual “Holidays in Haymarket” event. I’ll be in the heated tent with other local small food businesses from 3pm-6pm. We will be set up at the Town Hall parking lot (same spot as farmers market!)

Bring the kids to to see Santa, enjoy a cup of hot cocoa and roast a few marshmallows around the firepit. After that, pop into the kitchen for some early Christmas sweets and treats. I’ll have all the holiday favorites, including gingerbread.

December 8th I’ll be in Old Town Manassas, celebrating the holidays at their annual “Holiday Market”. So excited to be a part of those festivities, as the Santa Train will be treating kids of all ages to the wonders of rail travel into Clifton and back, with Mr. C himself on board! The market will be set up in front of the museum (on the lawn) across from the train station. You’ll find that the kitchen will be stocked with sweets, treats, and cupcake decorating for kids.

In between, I’ll be filling special orders for all the good little girls and boys… so be sure to get on my “nice” list. Don’t forget to mention this blog post at either of my holiday events and receive 10% off your purchase.

Thank you for your support over the past year. Many of you met me at the farmers markets, followed me on social media, or discovered me via Google Maps. Thanks so much for your special orders, purchases and referrals. All the likes, shares, and love on Facebook and Instagram can’t compare to talking with you at vendor events and helping you decide on the perfect cake or dessert for you special occasion. It’s an honor and privilege to be invited into YOUR kitchen. Here’s to more kitchen fun in 2019!

I hope to see you at one (or both) of my holiday events next week.

Lots of love from my kitchen to yours-
