Feeling a little Cake Spy...

Feeling a little Cake Spy this evening, and I'll tell you why.  Two reasons: 1) Deb's Cookies and 2) Cake Spy!

While up in my hometown of Winchester, Massachusetts last week, I took the boys to the local farmer's market held in the commons.  It was a gorgeous day and everyone had their tents popped up, produce displayed, and music going.  We stopped at this one tent, Deb's Cookies, and stared wildly at rows of cookies, brownies, and pound cakes, wrapped up so cutely and begging to be taken home!!

Can you tell I brought this lucky bag home for us?  My two sons (ages 7 and almost 5) were given samples of Deb's heavenly brownie and they just HAD to have more.  I felt it was my duty to please them, given I just HAD to have more, too!  These are absolutely the best brownies I've ever tasted, bar none.  Seriously.  Better than my own, and I thought I had a mean brownie! LOL

My mother bought her chocolate chip pound cake, which I helped devour.  It was absolutely fabulous and the perfect size to compliment a breakfast or dessert treat.  It tastes divine with coffee, milk, or wine (my personal choice). :)

I first learned of Deb and her cookie business through my mother (Winchester resident), who knows all the goody-goods of the town.  Meeting Deb at the market, she is one super sweet lady as we chatted for a bit about baked goods and business.  I wish it had been for longer, but my two charges were charging ahead of me and she was SUPER busy with customers (can I blame them?).

Lucky for me she can be found online at Deb's Cookies and on Facebook at Deb's Cookies Online (Winchester, MA)  If you're feeling a little Cake Spy yourself, you should check her out.

Now, about Cake Spy...  If you're not familiar with that phrase, is (get this) a Dessert Detective Agency!  How cool is that?  Jessie Oleson and her team make it their MISSION to spy on all things sweet and sugary!  Writer and Illustrator, not only does she make her blog posts inviting, informative, and fun, she also has a book coming out soon of her sweetest and sugary-est treats!  Spy on her yourself!  Happy baking!  Happy eating!
