So, I had my eyes examined today, and it turns out that I DID need new reading glasses. Perhap our recipes will turn out even BETTER, since I'll be able to see the proper quantities to measure out!! I highly recommend taking care of your eyesight ( not to mention the rest of yourself! ), so that you may correctly witness this beautiful world we live in.

Joe and I are looking for new "diggs", and took a drive through St. Petersburgh today. What a pretty city. We'd love feedback from anyone who has lived or currently lives there. The kitchen we produce our culinary magic in is located in Largo, and is currently a 33 mile drive each way... Talk about time and mileage! So we're hoping to get a little closer to both the kitchen and his job. Other suggestions are greatly appreciated.

Stop by the Ybor market this Saturday, 10/3, and pick up some Joeltz, cookies, and fresh Pumpkin Cream Cheese Swirl muffins. Fall is officialy here!

Ciao for now -

Affirmations are a Sweet Blessing!

Hello friends and family. Today Joe and I received a wonderful email from someone who had purchased from our booth at the Ybor Saturday Market. It made us both practically speechless (and if you know me - you know just how difficult THAT is!). I'm not going to say a lot about it, other than that it is a glorious reminder to us that following our bliss, living with passion and baking love into everything we make is what it's all about. Here, in it's entirety, is the letter:

"Hey Guys,

My wife and I stopped by your table at the Ybor Market and bought a couple of your delicious sweets and thought I'd let you know that they were awesome. We got the "Tres Leches" and those mini-cupcakes with the spicy kick (not sure what they're called so I make up my own name). My wife is not usually a fan of "Tres Leches" but me being Hispanic happen to love it so I got it anyway. My wife loved it! The mini-cupcakes with the spicy kick may be one of the most delicious sweets that I've ever had. We only bought 4 and once we finished those we almost turned back to by a bunch more but it was after 1pm.

You have a great product. Living in Brandon, it seems that everything around here is a cookie-cutter chain so we had to go all the way to Ybor to find a worthwhile product and happened to run into a unique product made by people from Brandon... ironic. I wish you the best of luck and hope to be able to buy more of your products.

Ciao for now, Good people...
