so maybe you know already, but maybe you don't... i got a niece!!! wren got born on april 9, 2008. i'm not sure anything could be more fun than that. this means lots of time that isn't spent baking has been spent watching her sleep, and sometimes throw up. even that looks cute on her. and outside of the house, it still feels like winter, but spring fever is catching up with me. the garden is late, but on its way. this year will be about winter squash, my new five-in-one apple tree, and a few other odds and ends. spring is also about some new spots for you to enjoy dovetail bakery treats at. please enjoy them at the red & black at it's new location on se 12th! so cute inside and maybe some of the friendliest folks too! you can eat pecan squares, coconut caramel squares, wheat-free lemon cornmeal scones with organic raspberry jam, and aunt miriam's sticky buns!!! they are named after my real aunt miriam, sister to my mom margaret, the best mom ever! she has been visiting from los angeles (my home town), but will be headed back there on monday. i'm pretty 110% certain that she'll be back soon. maybe she'll even enjoy a little behind the scenes work at good old dovetail bakery. thanks mom!!!
