Merry Meet, Merry Part and Merry Meet Again

All good things must come to an end….even little Winslowshire Festival.  Yes…it is true.

Winslow farm has decided that they are going in a different direction.

We would like to thank ALL of our performers, merchants and of course our hard working cast and crew that made this Festival 10 Classic Renaissance Faires across America : http://www.thedailymeal.com/10-classic-renaissance-faires-across-america (yeah, I am still not believing that either!).

We’d like to personally thank Nourish Lexington, http://www.nourishlexington.com who not only became the one and only Vegetarian food vendor that was fabulous but also was like finding a diamond – plus we now became friends.

We would like to thank ALL of you who came to the festival, whether it was our very first year (yeah, it was small) to the very last year (2011 season).  We would like to thank ALL of the people who have supported us (behind the scenes) like GoBostonCom http://www.gobostoncom.com and others.

We thank all of YOU who have become our friends and family – we were lucky to see some friends from the past (who I never thought I would see again) and meet some new ones every year.

We have other festivals/faires in the works, so other things are coming our way.  I like to think that Winslowshire was my springboard into this new career for both of us.  Without that, we would not have had this many opportunities that have come our way now.

So, Merry Meet, merry part and Merry Meet Again – Fare thee well, Winslowshire, you will always remain sweet in our eyes.

Cucina Dolce; scrumptious brownies and more!

Ah Cucina Dolce, a “Sweet kitchen” indeed….lots of amazingly delicious brownies and other sweet treats were available last June and she is coming back this June to Winslowshire Festival for the Animals!

Dawn DeMeo has been making brownies from scratch for over 10 years (that I can remember) and all kinds!  She makes Cheesecake flavored to Smores with marshmellows and chocolate mixed in.  She decided to create her own company now called Cucina Dolce that has been going since 2009.

Her brownies are the best I’ve ever tasted (and I’m an expert when it comes to Brownies ;)) and I can tell you that they are just out of this world good.

We hope that this entices you to come to Winslowshire Festival, and to have at least ONE brownie while you are at the festival this coming June!

Since her website is still under construction, you can find her on facebook at http://www.facebook.com/?ref=logo#!/pages/Cucina-Dolce/150047661699358?sk=wall and you can learn more information there!
