Gourmet gift baskets with a lemon zest

If you live in Arizona like us, you know that spring time is citrus time. Maybe that’s why someone decided that March 29 should be National Lemon Chiffon Day. lemon blondie gourmet gift

At Fairytale Brownies, we don’t do lemon chiffon. But we do bake delicious Lemon Blondies. These treats combine a touch of tart and a bite of sweet and are topped with lemony icing for pure enjoyment. You can send Lemon Blondies as a single-flavor gourmet gift or in a mixed gift basket with other bar flavors.

In honor of national lemon chiffon cake day and courtesy of Sunkist, here are a few fun facts about lemons:

  • Although lemon cultivation started in the Mediterranean in the first century A.D., 95 percent of all lemons in the U.S. are grown in California and Arizona.

A Twenty Year Fairytale with Fairytale Brownies!

I never thought I'd still be here, but twenty years later here I am still working at Fairytale Brownies, and what a Fairytale it's been!

This "Fairytale Journey" (as I call it) began when I answered a want ad in the Arizona State University school paper.  At the time I was hired to sell our delicious gourmet Belgian chocolate brownies at street fairs, festivals and farmer's markets across the Valley.  I also helped out wherever I was needed - in a small entrepreneurial start-up, everyone does everything.  Some days that meant cracking eggs to help Mike (Eileen's husband and our first baker) and Ron (neighborhood friend, baker, band member) in the kitchen, delivering brownies to grocery stores, working our tiny retail shop, taking orders over the phone. . . the list goes on and on!  As the word got out and we attended more events, people began asking if we would ship Fairytale Brownies to family and friends, so we did, and that's how the mail order aspect of the business came to be.  Now...
