Good afternoon!

A reminder to place your orders by noon tomorrow (Sunday) for pick up this Wednesday noon-3pm or Thursday 4-7pm. This will be the last regular preorder menu before the holidays, so it’s a great time to stock up on batters, breads, baked goods and other healthy treats, cashew cream cheese, and sauces to enjoy in the weeks to come as this year comes to a close. You can view the menu here, and remember that you can always click the weekly menu – preorder tab at juliaskitchen.co to see the current menu if I happen to forget the link:)

Remember the Artisan Market this Thursday 4-7pm!

Enjoy these beautiful dry days, and maybe do a little snow dance…

Last Regular Pick up before the holidays! Order by Sunday NOON for pick up Wednesday noon-3 or Thursday 4-7; Local Artisan Market Thursday 4-7 December 8, 2017

Filed under: Uncategorized — adaba @ 3:00 am

Good evening friends!

Wow, if you look at a calendar, you might notice that time is flying! This is the last pre order menu until the last week of December, so stock up now! There are some yummy holiday-themed offerings like squash pepita and cranberry walnut sourdough breads, as well as savory millet muffins and caramel walnut buckwheat roulades. It’s the perfect time to buy batters to freeze so you have healthy staples to finish your year off strong.

If you were hoping for something closer to the holidays, please speak to me directly (via email is fine) to make requests; I’ll be taking catering/special request orders to be picked up December 19th, but I’ll need to plan ahead. Let’s talk!

For this coming week, please please please get your orders in as soon as you are able, by noon on Sunday for pick up Wednesday December 13th noon-3pm or Thursday Dec 14th 4-7pm, when you can also check out the Local Artisan Market taking place at the shop! Please email orders to juliahellerman@gmail.com.

I am still working out what I’ll have available during the artisan market next Thursday, so stay tuned! Hopefully I’ll know by the reminder email on Sunday.

Have a wonderful night!

Filed under: Uncategorized — adaba @ 3:39 pm

Good morning! Happy Friday! Who else is waiting with baited breath and wondering when Winter will start to show up??

In the meantime, I’m still reminiscing…remembering the old place, the bakery case, and the waffles!! Yum! I wish I could make my cast iron waffle maker for for these, because I miss them!

The menu for next week is posted here. Don’t forget the bakery menu too, and that you can find the ingredients for most dishes listed here. Orders must be in by Sunday at 10pm, but the sooner the much better, do don’t delay if you don’t have to! The Wednesday evening pick up is getting a bit tricky for me, so please include your availability for pick up when you order, feel free to include optimal pick up times as well as available pick up times. I’ll post the pick up times on Sunday when I send out a reminder email and will also let you know when I confirm your order. Not to worry, if I announce a pick up time that doesn’t work for you, I’ll let you know that I’ve also planned a special time for you:)

I’m hosting a market on December 14th (Thursday) from 4-7pm for local artisans Millicent Kang (the lovely art that has graced the walls and raised the vibration of both Julia’s Kitchen locations), Emily Andrews (jewelry), Terri Crook (the potter who supplied of gorgeous pottery for Julia’s Kitchen), Terri Miro (vintage leather cuff bracelets), Liz Smith (jewelry), and Herbal Heart Apothecary. I may do some special baking to help you stock up for the holidays, and I’m still taking suggestions! So far, I’m considering the layered lemon turmeric bars, tiramisu, chocolate chip cookies, yule log, 6-layer torte…and still taking suggestions!

Have a fantastic day and weekend; see ya next week!

Menu for the week of November 27th; order by Sunday at 10pm and pick up Wednesday 4-7 or by appointment November 25, 2017

Filed under: Uncategorized — adaba @ 4:56 am

Good evening!

I hope you are enjoying the holiday weekend! Please click here for the menu for this coming week and remember that you can also order from the bakery menu. There are some delicious rotating favorites on there by request (kitchari, sausage pizza, sweet potato dosas, and hummus), as well as plenty of staples to get you through the week mixed and matched as you like.

As always, zero waste is a priority and lots of jars have gone out in the past few weeks. It would financially better for me to go out and buy more, but of course none of us want to consume unnecessarily, so please arrange to get jars back to me! I’ll make it as convenient as I can… if you want to bring them in when you pick up, please let me know whether you can leave enough time for me to fill ’em up when you come. You are also welcome to bring your own clean containers even if they aren’t jars. Again, just let me know in advance so I can plan accordingly.

I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend in good health and good company!

 

 

Thanksgiving Menu; please order by Saturday at 11am. Julia’s Kitchen closing in January November 16, 2017

Filed under: Uncategorized — adaba @ 5:32 am

img_9970Good evening!

Both the regular weekly preorder menu and the bakery menu are available for next week, as well as a special menu for Thanksgiving. Please place orders by Saturday at 11am for Tuesday and Wednesday pick up, and include your availability for pick up times. Orders should be sent via email to juliahellerman@gmail.com.

For those who missed it last week, I will be closing up shop at the end of January. I’ve loved it and am so glad and lucky that I had the opportunity to do it. I can’t begin to tell you how much I’ve learned, how much fun I’ve had, and how happy I am to have met all of you! It’s time for a break and to move forward in some way. I’m not sure yet what I’ll do next. I plan on a cookbook and also plan to continue to do some baking out of my house (yay Cottage Food Act), and I look forward to seeing what comes next!

Enjoy the rest of your week!
