A month ago, I was invited by Facebook Headquarters, located in Playa Vista, to set up a pop-up at their kitchen. It was a fun experience connecting to folks at their workplace. Afterwards, my partner and I enjoyed some dinner and walked around Marina del Rey. I found this beautiful cake plate that reads: fall in love with your life. I enjoyed the synchronicity of the day and finding this item. I have been mindfully working at enjoying all the blessings and challenges that come up with being a full-time entrepreneur.
In a few weeks, Good Mexican Girl celebrates seven years of baking cookies and pastries in the Los Angeles area. We have had a few successes getting our products to local cafes. At the moment, you can find a selection of our vegan and gluten free cookies at Capuyo Cafe in Boyle Heights. Currently, I'm looking into joining a commercial kitchen so we can get our products to even a wider audience. I'll keep you posted on that news hopefully by the end of the year.
Of course, we are baking away and testing new recipies to see which one will be our 7th anniversary cookie. A few of our anniversary cookies have become favorites among our customers such as the Dulce de Leche cookies which we nicknamed Liquid Gold (year 1), Vegan Rocky Road with no Nuts (year 5), and the Rosewater Pistachio cookie (year 6) which is available vegan or vegan-gluten-free too. The rosewater pistachio is our top seller.
Our first contender this year is our take on a biscotti cookie. The texture is perfect for dipping into your favorite fall / winter beverage. It's an almond and orange blossom cookie dipped in soyfree-dairyfree chocolate. I don't have a name for it yet. It looks so decandent. At the moment, I have it in boxes of 2 cookies. Working out the packaging to set it up in boxes of 4 or 6.
We have uped the anty on our oatmeal cookie making it more nutritious. It's our take on a granola bar. We have prepared with mulberries, lucuma, and nutmeg. It's a Vegan Superfood Oatmeal Cookie. These I have available at local popups this weekend.
This week, I'll be baking up some more new items to see which one is a hit. It's a perfect time since Thanksgiving is around the corner. Also, the biggest holiday shopping weekend is coming up too. We'll post another blog entry on all the pop-ups you can find us at this Holiday Season
Wishing you continued blessings and thank you for your support,
