Happy Thanksgiving from Candice


Hi, it’s Shane here. Candice wanted me to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving. Yes, she is a few days early, but she’s so busy preparing the Thanksgiving desserts for her loyal customers and opening the doors Wednesday to the community to stop by for a pastry. Anyway, she didn’t want to forget to thank all of you for reading our story.

This year we invited our family, friends, and neighbors to join us at the café for a delicious meal Thursday. The one thing about my wife, she loves to feed everyone.

Candice also asked me to share this recipe with all of you. She can’t remember where she found it but hopes you enjoy it. So if you try it, let her know. Also, if she perfects the vegan version she will post that recipe too.

Much Love from Candice, myself, and our family.
