However, she is determined to get to Oxford. Using her love for baking and her passion for quality, she shall be operating a booth at our local farmer's market to sell her delightful desserts and home grown produce with a bit of handmade whimsey added.

I have been allowed the privilege of food critic, happily tasting my way through cranberry-ginger petit fours, dark chocolate marzipan stuffed apricots, Italian strawberry tarts, divine French macaroons, English strawberry scones, and S'mores cookies just to name a few! It's a wonder I haven't gained any weight this week!
Packaging and presentation are not forgotten in the scheme of things either. Natural coffee filters cut in half and stitched into triangles make perfect packages of home dried lime basil tea. Just toss the whole bundle into a teapot and steep away!
