Offer: Homemade Granola

Item Name & Description: A batch of homemade granola, custom-blended by yours truly.

Starting Bid: $5

Notes: One batch of granola equals about four cups, maybe a bit more. Rolled oats are the base. I can vary the sweetener, the fruit, the nuts, various add-ons (chocolate?) and the spicing to your particular taste (or dietary restrictions), or you can let me wing it. the results will be scrumptious no matter what.

I'm not always the timeliest of bakers but I'll try go get your granola to you within a month after we close final negotiations. And I'll pack it in a pretty jar with a ribbon and an ingredients card -- maybe even a recipe so you can try duplicating it at home.

US delivery only, please.

Any questions? Ask!

Offer: Gluten Free Baked Goods

Item Name & Description: Home-made Gluten Free baked goods. One batch of drop cookies (typically 18 big cookies), one dozen muffins, one loaf of bread or a bundt cake.

Starting Bid: $10

Notes: These are four separate offers. Specify which one you're bidding on.
Other allergens can also be accommodated. You get to choose the specifics of your baked goods. I can do just anything.
Please notify me beforehand how sensitive you are to cross contamination. I cook in a kitchen which is not gluten-free. Unless you ask otherwise, I'll sterilize to my level of sensitivity.
Due to the nature of gluten-free baked goods, they can't spend long in transit. I'll ship UPS priority mail anywhere in the continental US, but it'd be best if you're in the Midwest. Make sure you can pick-up the package the day it arrives, and freeze anything you don't eat that day.
