This is what happens when your kitchen gets taken over by two full pigs...🤦🏻‍♀️

We had to switch gears and make torresmos brancos (fried pork belly) today instead of our promised sweet bread.

Hoping we can tackle sweet bread next week! We will be sharing a video on this easy recipe in a bit.

As many of you may already know, Carmen’s Bakery will be closing its doors one last time on Thursday, December 31. It is a bittersweet moment for the entire Carmen’s Bakery family, after 37 successful years in business.

We could not have made it to the 37-year mark without you, our amazing customers. Words cannot express how much your continued support has meant to us throughout the years; from Carmen’s humble beginnings baking in her home to her first store on Hemlock Street, many of you have been there through it all.

We hope that you can stop by in the coming weeks to say goodbye one last time. We look forward to serving you and your family for our last holiday season.
