last outdoor market today!

And of cource it is raining!! LOL we have gotten sooooooooo much rain this fall!!  making up for the drought this summer I guess!! but naturally it has to be coming on our market days!!
So this is South Haven's last outdoor market day and then November 3rd we start inside at Foundry Hall for our Winter Market with a great line up of farms/vendors being there!! I will post about that once we start and also give pics!!

So yesterday was a long day baking at the kitchen.  I feel blessed to have a dear sweet friend MARY join us baking! WHEW!! I would probably still be there getting ready for market if it wasnt for her and Susan making things!!

I made up some lavender shortbread cookies

Susan made praline pecan bars *when I took this pic they just came out of the oven still bubbling!*

Mary made this delish batch of chocolate coconut biscotti bites!! oh my goodness I could eat the whole batch!~! SERIOUSLY** love biscotti!!
hmmmmmmmmmmm maybe if we have some left I make buy a few and hide em!! LOL

this is Susan's Aunt Rosalee's crispy molasses cookies that Mary made!! Oh my these guys are pretty and yummy too!!

these little guys baked up so nice!

oh they look so pretty!! 

I also made a batch of pumpkin spice bars with cream cheese frosting which are pretty tasty too!!

and then I was so so pleased with this pinterest recipe I just had to make!!  Cinnamon Braid Bread
You roll it up jelly roll style then cut in 1/2  twist the two ends together and fan out the edges and shape into a circle.
 (I will find the original post and link it up here, she has awesome step by step directions)  I highly recommend making this bread it is easy peasy!!

So you see these beautiful layers of cinnamony goodness!! oh and buttery too!!=) 

They look so darned pretty but we had to cut one up to see if they matched up in taste!! 

a little "farmgirl bling" of just powdered sugar and water drizzeled on top. 
Ps. they are not only pretty but yes yummy too!! 
So a big THANKS TO MARY AND SUSAN!! and a sneak peek, more marshmallows to come next week!!  Mary is making a special seasonal flavor!! WOOHOO!! 
Have a blessed weekend I will be back soon!!
Sunday is our 12th year anniversary and hubby and I are doing something special with our "MY boys" lol for the day!!  and I am making a special supper for us maybe I will even get a bottle of wine or wellllllllllll probably a sweet fruity one since we dont care much for wine!! LOL
Hugs yall!!

I enjoy reading your post so much. Everything looks so yummy. I wish I lived nearby so I could attend markets.
