New website in the works!

Hey all you faithful followers! I have been super busy unleashing AmandaBakes all around the Northwest Corner of Connecticut this summer and into the fall. Also, my faithful web designer Harmony and I have been dreaming up a fun new website.  I will be keeping the amandabakes.com address, but the blog format will change. Sad part is, I can’t take my followers with me. So, if you like following AmandaBakes- when I say “when”- please follow me over to the new format. The website goes live very soon- I’ll keep you posted!

I will leave you with a photo from last weekend’s Morris Marketplace.

Farmer’s Markets…all summer long!

I haven’t blogged in a while, I’ve been busy growing this business of mine! Next up? A real website! Most Saturday mornings you can find me at the Norfolk, CT Town Hall on Maple Avenue. It’s a bit of a haul from home base, but the atmosphere and the people can’t be beat. It’s a laid-back, go barefoot and bring the pooch kind of affair.

Here are some highlights of this summer’s markets so far. It is bittersweet as Labor Day looms: Excited for baking up the abundance of the Fall harvest, but sad to see the lazy, warm days of Summer slip away. Apple pie is on the horizon!
