I've spent a great deal of time since the move planning my next big project!
You all know how much I LOVE baking.
Well, I've been sharing some samples of my kitchen goodies around, and the biggest question everyone asks me is why don't I sell my cookies and bread?
Well, um... I don't like professional baking because I hate the smell of icing sugar.
It hit me- I don't HAVE to bake cakes with frosting. I can stick to cookies. I can stick with breads. I can stick with non-frosted pound cakes.
I have HUNDREDS of recipes I've developed over the past decade. Each recipe has weeks of testing in it to produce consistent results.
Why not? But- I don't want to sell BIG. I'm a busy lady. Where can I sell small and still have fun being creative?
It hit me- there are farmer's markets EVERYWHERE in this area.
Why not rent a booth for the season?
(Note to the crowd: Yes, I ask myself a LOT of questions. Unfortunately, I get angry when I don't answer non-rhetorical questions also.)
So, I'm sending in my application for booth space.
Surprisingly, the Husbeastie is fully supporting of this endeavor. (I'm fairly sure he's excited to be a taste tester more than anything else.)
So- if my application is approved, expect to see me at the Ohio Valley Farmer's Market in St. Clairsville this summer. All goes well, and I might expand to a few other markets next season. If it doesn't go well, I'll go back to the drawing board, plan some more, and get back out there next season.
