She has a LOT of cookie choices....everything from Snickerdoodles to Thumbprints and more. The ones below are called Bleeding Hearts, a cookie she developed as a nod to the Twilight phenomenom. They're so delicious! Reminiscent of a Pop Tart but made with whole wheat flour and homemade raspberry jam. So really, nothing like a Pop Tart.

One of Kelli's friends, Kirsten, went to pastry school to learn breadmaking and brings loaves of freshly baked breads to the farm stand.

Doesn't it all look scrumptious? And I can't think of a better way to shop for produce and a few treats. It's much more pleasant to be outside on a farm than inside a flourescent supermarket!

Well, that's the end of my calorie laden post. Let's all get on the treadmill, shall we? PS. My next post will have nothing to do with food. Promise.
