I love these few pre-season weeks. We shopkeepers are sweeping the sidewalk, raking the grass and preparing the earth for flowers so everything looks beautiful when you arrive.

Inside, at Pipka's, we’re arranging the bookshelves and hanging art. The aroma of our new coffee flavors, Breakfast Cinnamon Strudel and Turtle Pecan, mingle with almond cakes and candles. (Everyone always comments on how good it smells in here!)

We are working on a revised Cakelet recipe book as well as a Postcard Recipes book, and a Cupcakes & Cookies recipe book, available May 24th.  (Sign up for a free Almond Cake & Variations e-book at the top of this page!) I love to bake and share delicious, easy-to-bake recipes with you. I know you’re busy but still want the homemade healthy cookies and cakes to tuck into the kids’ lunch boxes, serve at bookclub, or just “Wow!” your guests! You’ll be the baking queen of your neighborhood! And it’s all so easy!

Have a happy spring day! You are awesome!
