And the Winners Are!

Yes, the correct answer to our vacation quiz was Cayucos, but the foggiest place on earth and somewhere with no phone were true as well. Jo Duffy and Denise Frey won the two carrot tea loaf cakes we had available this week.

Since I still have a lot of carrots, I think I'll make more carrot tea loaf cakes available this week for anyone who would like to order one. I freeze them and use them when I have friends over or I need a last minute special dessert. I've defrosted them after several months with no apparent loss in quality. The wheat germ, carrots, and pineapple make this a healthy treat... right?

Ingredients: Organic unbleached flour, butter, cream cheese, heavy cream, sugar, brown sugar, powdered sugar, carrots, pineapple, wheat germ, eggs, ginger, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and vanilla.

This Week's Drawing

I've been busy working on vegan breakfast pastries this week. That includes challah mice with chocolate hearts. As you can see, they are taking over my freezer, so I'd like to share some with one lucky winner. Answer the poll on the upper right and email me that you've entered your answer. I'll add you to our drawing for 8 challah mice. (hint: Starlight Mouse Sightings)

We had a friend over for dinner last night. Each of us had a challah mouse sitting on our plate, next to the salad. Challah mice cute and they taste good too! The entry deadline is noon on Monday.
