I think it is safe to say, that Madaline and I bake, ALOT. I even have a separate blog about my escapades in the kitchen, that my sister & I co-author. Well, I do more on it than she does, but, that is neither here or there. The Townsend Bakery is really more my dream, my baby than hers, but, it wouldn't be the same if here name wasn't attached to it some how.
And, so when a fellower blogger put out a call looking for some of our favorite food based blogs, I jumped at the chance to put The Townsend Bakery in for consideration. Never in a million years, did I expect what actaully came of it.
You see, Jill, the creator and author of Scary Mommy, has set up and started, one of the most ADORABLE on-line kitchen shops I have ever seen.
It has the sweetest, most eclectic collection of kitchen stuff. You can find adorable aprons, fun cookware and some great holiday gifts. All right in one place.
So, you can just imagine the squees of joy I let out when I found that Jill linked to one of my Townsend Bakery recipes on her new site. I mean really, Just look at this apron.....
Isn't it adorable?
I can so totally see myself serving up Christmas dinner or serving my apple cake with tea or coffee. My husband might actually think I was Martha Stewart or June Cleaver instead of just thinking that I pretend to be like them.
Additionally, it was fun to see lots of different items geared towards children on her site. Jill, being that is is a mother of three, knows that children love to cook and should be encouraged to aid and experiment.
And, with idea shown in the picture above or with charming accessories, like these measuring spoons, our kiddos are for sure going to be right at home in the kitchen.
And, even if I didn't have Madaline, I would want those measuring spoons. They would make me crack up every time I needed to measure out a teaspoon or two of good vanilla extract.
And, I am honored to be a part of her site - I am honored to have one of my favorite recipes featured there. How could I not be? Thank you Jill...THANK YOU!
And, with that my dear readers, I have something to ask of you. Take a look at your Christmas list - do you have people left to buy for? I know I do - I have NOT even started to do my Christmas shopping. So, perhaps instead of heading to the mall or you local big box chain store, you take a minute and poke around Bread & Butter, a kitchen shoppe. You won't be sorry.
