|Kenia Osorio & Rossmery Avila|
It’s simple. Start a business!
Accomplished bakers and cousins Rossmery Avila and Kenia Osorio Fernandez started Delicias Galletas Decoradas in response to urging from friends.
Both women are well-known and have a large extended family group living on the island.
Rossmery and Kenia were born on Isla, with ancestors from the Yucatán, Mérida, and Spain.
|Cool Spiderman Cookies|
Kenia Osorio is the decorating specialist. She created the fabulous Spiderman birthday cookies for Barlow Wareing’s birthday party. All of the little kids, including Lawrie, thought the cookies were amazing – wishing they could have two instead of just one!
If you want to order your very own supply of decadent treats contact Rossmery or Kenia via email: firstname.lastname@example.org or via telephone at 877-0665.
If you don’t have any idea of what a carrot cake with cream cheese filling Moon Pie is, you need to try one – right away!

And some for our four-legged friends
|Bessie and gourmet dog cookies|
Long-time resident of Isla she is well-known for her beautiful shell mirrors, displayed in some of the best locations on Isla: Barlito’s Café and Bakery, Olivia’s Restaurante, Su Casa, and a number of private homes including a matching pair made for Steve and Lindell Lehrer. Bessie first discovered Isla Mujeres in 1981. She finally made the move in 1988 to live full-time on the island, working at the Cristalmar Hotel on Sac Bajo for a time before retiring. Over the years her elaborate mirrors have migrated to homes in New York, California, Texas, France and Italy.

A sample bag of 100 grams costs $30.00 pesos (under $3.00) but if you are treating a beach dog or neighbourhood pooch Bessie will give you a break on the price; buy one get one free. Bessie would be happy to deliver although she is conveniently located near Chedraui in the middle of the island should you wish to pick up a supply. Don’t forget to keep these treats in the freezer. They don’t have any preservatives and will spoil in the tropical heat.

Contact Bessie at 998-116-2987 to place an order. If you are a four-legged client, perhaps you could get your human to make the call for you.
Prices: 100 grams $30 pesos, 200 grams $60 pesos, 450 grams $125 pesos.
So, now you are all set for cookies; cookies for you, cookies for your friends, and cookies for your four-legged pals.
Never mind the calories. There is always another Monday to start a diet.

PS: When I was attempting to photograph the mirror Norris's puppy was buzzing around my feet. I tried to get him in the photo but he only showed as a dark blur - moving and wiggling around too much. So, Mighty Manfred, I apologize for not including your photo. You are a sweetie.
