Ever-growing fan base!

We've received another great fan letter from our patrons at the Ybor Market and I want to share it with you here. I am so thrilled that we are getting such great feedback - it continues to reinforce in our minds that we are doing something right! We're moving this week, so I'll keep this post short - but I hope you get from this that, if you haven't been to the market and/or tasted our goods - you are really missing out on something special!

Here's the letter:

We met you for the first time last Saturday at the market. We picked up some Mutts, the Apple Cake, a Lemon, Blueberry Muffin. My partners name was Steve also.

Anyway. We were and still are most impressed. I have to agree with another observer. Everything out there these days is so cookie cutter run of the mill stuff. Even the new Publix gourmet items are nice, but so mass produced feeling.

I cannot even begin to think what those Cakes and cheese cakes would be like. I am a CAKE FREAK!!! Steve is the same with Cheese Cake. Once the weather cools, please consider bringing some of these with you to the market. The Malt Ball one sounds so dreamy. The bread pudding!! OMG, did you have any with you last week?? I know the market is closed this week due to the holiday, will you all be set up the weekend of the 7th??

Anyway, the best of luck to you and your business and hope to see you all soon

Learn something new every day...

Today I met some really wonderful folks: the owners/bakers of Millie's Gourmet Biscotti.
They're lovely folks, and they make some of the best biscotti I've ever tasted.
They were kind enough to let me sample their Lemon Blueberry White Chocolate biscotti, and it was to live for!

Now, as many of you know, we started out baking biscotti, which led us into a whole new world of Dessert possibilities. Baking biscotti us a true art form, and when we relocated to Florida, we were suddenly dealing with HUMIDITY! It really killed our recipes, and so we decided to concentrate on things we had more control over. Now we've become known for our cookies, muffins and cakes, etc; If we' d had the fore-sight, we could have changed our name to
Joey Everything BUT Biscotti!!

So I want to strongly recommend to all of you biscotti lovers, to head over to
www.MilliesGourmetBiscotti.com, and buy some of the finest biscotti around!
