We're feeling the love this week, as the Valentine's orders are pouring in. Each season, we take great joy in trying new recipes or bringing back favorite desserts from years past.
Welcome to the first edition of Themed Thursdays, where we'll post some of our creations that fall within a specific theme...color scheme...you get the idea.
Last winter, we received an undercover visit from CakeSpy, a.k.a. Jessie Oleson. She visited Philadelphia on a cold, snowy weekend, and hit a few local bakeries to sample goodies. She stealthily popped in and out of our shop so fast, we didn't even know she was here. (Read the review.)
This time, we'll be able to roll out the red carpet in anticipation because we know when she's coming! That's right: CakeSpy will be here signing copies of her new cookbook, "Sweet Treats for a Sugar-Filled Life."
We carry on many traditions here in our bakery. For example, recipes used by my father and grandfather are still used, even though in some cases quicker and more cost-efficient methods have been developed. Additionally, we still bake dozen, upon dozen, upon dozen, upon--okay, you get the point--traditional German holiday cookies each year. Each day, we honor the past and our predecessors in the work that we do.
...as we still have two whole days left in September, but...the Hill is abuzz with so many great activities in October! We've been super busy gearing up for these events.

Traditions. So comforting, aren’t they?
A few weeks back, before my youngest son went back to college, I spent the day with my three children, Lauren, Irvy and Jake, at the Philadelphia Zoo. That day I was reminded of just how lucky we are to live so close to this wonderful place, and how it has become a part of my family’s history.
