The holidays have successfully snuck in between these abnormally warm Colorado days. While we can all hope for a little snow &, dare I say, a little cold, the holidays are here regardless. So we've begun baking & decorating cookies whether you are ready to eat them or not!!
Our Thanksgiving went quite well. The bakery was busy as ever. We took the weekend away to enjoy family in Santa Fe, NM & returned relaxed and ready for the next push through December. Thank you for all the pies ordered and consumed last month, just enough to stretch your stomachs for cookies, right?

After a brief summer break (a trip to the lovely Crested Butte) we are back and gearing up for pie season at Wooden Spoon. I know, it seems so soon! But we have pastry boxes to fold and order forms to begin preparing for Thanksgiving and beyond. So while we watch the neighborhood shift into school schedules and more serious work routines, we will be doing the same, in a sense.
But before we move on to fall officially I wanted a few quick lines dedicated to Colorado peach season, my favorite time of year. Now, I may be biased, as I was born in this lovely state, but I think Colorado peaches are the best. I've tried Georgia peaches, Long Island white peaches and many more but still, Palisade turns out the best. This summer, I even had a chance to make a peach pie at home! So here's to peach season, we'll miss you when you are gone.
Our shop has now been open for 2 years & 2 months and we can't believe the transformation and growth of this once small neighborhood. Jason and I recall sleepy afternoons in 2010 when 32nd St. seemed to siesta from Federal to Tejon, but no more! Those days are gone. It has been great to meet new faces and build relationships with new regulars and just as great to watch the changes with our very first customers who have stuck with us since day one.
So on to September. We look forward to fall sweets, hot teas and soup to make it back on the menu! And of course, I aim to write more on this darn blog!!!!!
See you at the shop.

Wooden Spoon churned through its first full year of baking on June 20th this summer and Jason and I are glad and thankful to have found ourselves on the very busy side of being busy! While we've done much baking and our pastry chefs have created delicious sweets during our first year, what we have been most surprised about is just how many breakfast sandwiches we've marched out of our kitchen, into your hands only to watch them disappear in your stomachs! We hadn't really planned on Jason being tied to the burner all day long, every day long. Pretty soon we'll need to hire a prep cook to do all the prep cooking that Jason can't seem to get to anymore. So, if we run out of sticky buns some wild Saturday morning and can't get around to making another batch, you know the reason. Blame it on the breakfast sandwich monsters. The good news is that Jason can make some darn good eggs.
And so we'll thank everyone again as we have in the past for offering up a very lovely and very successful first year to Wooden Spoon.
Jeanette & Jason.

Well, our version anyways. We can barely keep them in the case! If you get a chance, and if they're not sold out, take a bite of one of these. I like to eat them Seinfeld-style but by all means, messy up your fingers and two front teeth if you like.
Here's to all things caramel, chocolate & sweet!!
