Hello Everyone,

We have finalized our 2016 Winter schedule!

Saturdays through November 19: Northstar House, 8-12:30

Thursdays through December 22: Western Gateway Park in Penn Valley, 9-1

Victorian Christmas in Nevada City: Sundays Dec 4, 11, 18 1:30-6; Wednesdays Dec 14 and 21, 5-9 p.m.

As always, special orders are always welcome.

Celebrating Peaches!

They seem to be at their peak right now; come out and enjoy peach scones, pies, cobblers and more. We will even have peach dumplings Thursday (July 21) in Penn Valley.

Winter Tales….

We are often asked what we do all Winter. I usually answer “Clean house”, which is not far from the truth.

We do clean house, but we also test new recipes. Winners include chocolate chip cookie dough truffles; gluten free chocolate cookies; mocha muffins, and maple ginger cookies.

We also get out and about to see what is new. We will be going to Cookie Con in Los Angeles in February, and braved the rain to try a warm donut stuffed with ice cream at The Parlour in Sacramento.

We hope to see you at Mill St Clothing on March 1st from 1-4 p.m. for the annual Foothills Celebration, featuring local wine and food samples. Tickets are available through the Grass Valley Downtown Association.

We will be back at the Northstar House every Saturday beginning mid April, and as always are available for special orders any time!!


New: Chocolate Raspberry Baked Donuts; Gluten Free Blackberry Struesel Bars; Big flaky squares of pie to take home or eat on the run….look for White Nectarine Raspberry tomorrow….

Big, beautiful certified organic blackberries from Riverhill Farms in Nevada City…featured in cobblers and tarts.

Nanas will be closed the week of the Fair. We will be open at Northstar tomorrow, Auguts 8 and then will reopen Monday, August 17.

What’s in the Oven?

Hot Chocolate Cookies:  Rich, fudgy cookies with a marshmallow melted on top, covered in a fudgy frosting….

Whole Wheat Cinnamon Chocolate Chip Scones….

We will once again be at Mill St Clothiers Saturday, March 1st. We will be sampling Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookies, Espresso Brownies, Raspberry Squares, Baked Pumpkin Donuts, and Mini Fruit Tarts. We hope to see you there. A ticket will give you your choice of any 3.

…warm out of the oven for today’s Growers Market general membership meeting at the Northstar House….come try them April 13 at our first market of the year.


Pocket Pies….

We have had a very busy summer; as usual, much better at baking than at marketing….

On a short trip to San Francisco, we noticed pocket pies everywhere. Our version features fresh local or organic fruit. Our favorite flavors are Peach Raspberry with Pearson peaches and organic raspberries, and Apple Blackberry with berries from the Northstar Market.
Come see us! Peace, love, and chocolate….
