This month’s Neat Market is coming up in a few days and I’m ridiculously excited about it. There will be even more vendors this time in a bigger venue. And I’ll have enough money to splurge on all kinds of awesome food and crafts.
If you happen to be in the Denver area this Sunday check it out! It’ll be at The Other Side Arts 1664 Platte from 11 am to 3 pm.
For more info check out the Plants and Animals site.
I’ll be making food for the P&A minimart again. More handpies because everyone loved them last time. They’ll have a sweet potato, collards and andouille bean sausage filling this time. I’ll also have tamarind sea salt caramels and four kinds of rolled truffles.
This is a big deal for me. Feeling truly, wonderfully happy doesn’t happen very often. So much of my life is tinged with disappointment, depression, anger…feeling so wonderful right now is a bit bewildering.
So much of this is due to the success of the Neat Market. It was the most amazing day. There were so many people there! Everyone was so positive! The energy was amazing. I had so much positive feedback from people.
This is what I want to do. I want to make pastries and confections and all sorts of other goodies and make people happy.
Tomorrow is the first Neat Market - an all vegan pop up market here in Denver. I’m so excited to be involved with this. I’ll be making some candies and chocolates and some awesome broco-cheddar handpies.

I’m just happy that once a month I’ll have some place to go where there will be no question about what products are made of. And the market will be full of local vendors!
I know Denver has relatively mild winters. I shouldn’t complain. And I really don’t complain as much as when I first moved here. But it’s still depressing. The cold. The short days. Snow.
I’m an island girl. Doesn’t matter where in the world I end up that will never change. I miss the ocean and sun. Year round the amount of daylight doesn’t vary by much. So no weird seasonal depression. If I could afford to go back for a couple weeks I would. But a round trip ticket is about what I make in a month.
I have been baking a lot though. It helps keep my apartment warm. I just need to get my butt to the library and in front of a computer so I can post about them. Did I also mention that winter makes me lazy? I do no relish the idea of trudging through the snow to use a computer for an hour or so.
I’ll eventually post some new recipes and photos…
I haven’t been well for a while and everytime I think I’m starting to feel better I get sick again. So I’m behind on all the fun projects I had planned and it will be a few weeks before I have anything new up.
I was supposed to post a palmier recipe that a few people requested and I’m sorry that it’s going to take a while longer to get that done.
Hopefully I’ll get some answers over the next few weeks.
