Spring Elixirs | 5 Drinks that Satisfy Your Cocktail Craving

Pop! | Our Favorite Champagnes and Sparkling Wines

Yes, New Year's Eve owns champagne, but we think it's nice in the summer as well.  It's light, it's sparkly, and it's fun.  Read on for our top five for a Friday afternoon at the shop or a Sunday afternoon at the beach.

Gifts for the Baker

While Thanksgiving isn't a gift-giving holiday, we never arrive at someone's house empty-handed. Even if it's something small like flowers or a specialty salt, it's the perfect way to thank someone for inviting you into their home. So, we have become the masters of the hostess gift.

From Our Test Kitchen | The Benefits of Bee Pollen

First just let us say -  we are not doctors.  But we are very interested in health and general wellness.  The shop girls are always sharing recipes, natural beauty products and wellness news we read in an article (or saw on TikTok).  Perhaps we are late to the party, but lately recipes featuring bee pollen have caught our eye.
