After my post the other day, a few wonderful and a couple not so wonderful things have happened. I found out that I won something from Rookie Cookie's giveaway, Ina Garten's Back to Basics cookbook. I cannot wait to get it; mostly because it means I get to meet up with the wonderfully fabulous Whitney. Then yesterday all our seedlings were sprouted, except the peppers. I did a little bake sale prep - making the black and white halva bites (recipe at zupas blog tomorrow), we ran errands, weeded our front flower bed, re-planted a few tulips, sprinkled around some columbine, poppy, and butterfly weed, worked a little more on my biscotti and gf apple molasses cookies (which I hoped to share with you today), failed, and accordingly re-drafted my bake sale lineup - see bottom of post.
I also got an e-mail with some details about the bake sale this saturday. Are you sick of hearing about it yet? no? well good; because I will be talking about it again tomorrow. Keep reading to get all the details about what when and where. Even if you don't live in the beehive state, you can still help by donating. However if you do make it, there will be free stuff from some awesome local cakeries, and you know you won't want to miss that.

My re-vamped goody line-up:
black and white halva bites
walnut raisin loaf (1-2 loaves)
apple molasses cookies
gluten free girl's lemon olive oil cookies
is there anything you want to see?
as far as I know, they are all vegan friendly (as I will veganize them), and both the halva bites and lemon olive oil cookies are gluten free. I have taken special care to assure no gluten contamination has taken place, but alas my home is not a gluten free home.
off to bake!
