Ten years later, we know how it’s done.

This year, we were ready, steady, GO TIME, WOW!

Rachel really rocks the house. I treated her to a massage this year, before the party. That was very smart of me.

That’s just one station, we have about six pre-set, and we can always throw another one together.

Sometimes, if there are a lot of kids we do a low station.

There are always a lot of kids.

Joseph has been coming for YEARS.  He saw the  mini M&M’s in the reach-in and of course, they went on his fudge pie!

Most of the regulars were there, and lots of pals from the Silverlake Music  Conservatory.

 

Zach and Ericka always launch their holiday season with a little pie-making. Vegan, of course.

There was a nice steady flow all day. The pace was perfect.

We only lost one pie, and then we found it!

Lot’s of first-timer, too! There’s nothing like your first pie!

My party favors were on point!  The ginger liqueur was the most popular, with pickled cranberries and chocolate cashew butter a close second.

Lunch was delicious. Our of all the many recipes we serve, I love the old school chicken Marbella the most, the yummiest.

Of course, the serious bakers always request early baking slots so they can work in a clean kitchen, and have a little extra time.

Masterpieces.

Look at these happy sisters. It warms my heart.

Megan convinced all her girl crew climbing team to come have some fun in the kitchen. I think they’ll all be back next year!

Elise the Magnificent was there from We Adorn You.

It wouldn’t be a party without her!

The old time string band, Echo Mountain, was such a wonderful addition. Kelly played the first Make it & Take It in 2008!

All in all, the best ever, of course!

You should come next year, it’s always the Sunday before Thanksgiving.

See you there!
