while at a local farmers market a year or so ago i discovered the shoebox oven (online at shoeboxoven.com). not only were their cupcakes delicious, but i was enamored with the creativity i found on their site – from the photos to the imaginative names of each special item in their list. it was a while before i thought of them again, and then right before thanksgiving i got their e-newsletter which prompted me to immediately order some champagne chocolate to bring to my sister’s house. it was truly spectacular and i immediately started thinking about who else might enjoy their confections during the holidays. so in a few days, some friends and family will receive special packages full of the best kind of goodies. ’tis the season to indulge.
