Remember all those sad excuses for bake sales you were forced to patronize or participate in during elementary school?
This Saturday's pop-up bake sale co-hosted by Fluff Bake Bar and Southerleigh will be nothing like it.
And, I promise, that's not fake news, 'cause here's the menu:
Fried Chicken and Praline Crepes, SoCo steeped Pecan, Crystal Hot Butter Sweet and Sour Gooseberry Southern Style Hand Pie
Fredericksburg Peach and Crystal Cookie, Smoked Gouda Shortbread
Handheld Pineapple and Cornbread Pudding
Puro SA Pan Dulce Breakfast Sandwich, Sausage and Egg, Jalapeño Pimento Beer Cheese
When: 10am-(sell out), Saturday, June 17, 2017
*Arriving early is encouraged as quantities will be limited

In fewer than three months, I plan to head to the idyllic forests of the San Moreno Valley in northern New Mexico for the food & wine festival at the Angel Fire Resort.
If you, like me, are continually seeking solace in the form of booze and/or baked goods during the trainwreck that is the 2016 Presidential Campaign, go to 3 Brothers Bakery. In addition to offering their regular menu comprising standouts such as the buttery hamantaschen, creative cupcakes (burger??), and lovely challah, the Bakery is once again offering an election special: sugar cookies adorned with the images of the Democratic and Republican candidates as well as "Gingy", 3 Brothers' write-in selection.
Lest you prematurely conclude that since, as in the case of this reporter (and anyone who doesn't think the leader of the free world should be a misogynist xenophobe), I'm With Her and therefore will certainly not be consuming a Trump cookie, consider the wisdom of the Addams Family credo:
Sic gorgiamus allos subjectatos nunc.*
(We gladly feast on those that would subdue us.)
I suggest picking up a dozen for your debate-viewing party.
*Yes, I know the Latin isn't perfect but neither are you so get over it.
