NH Magazine, Here I Come!

Well, the power of Twitter definitely exists! I couldn't believe the other day when I got a message from New Hampshire Magazine asking me if I'd be interested in submitting some chocolate caramel apples for a fall issue. Uh, heck yeah! Oh wait, the email and phonecall came on Wednesday afternoon and the apples were due Friday, just two days later. So, needless to say, off to the kitchen I went.
Here we are Friday morning and I am ready to deliver three plates of apples. I chose to go a different route. Instead of the traditional caramel apple with a stick in it, I opted for slices so that I could dip and smother each slice in glorious treats.
I hope NH Magazine loves them, and I hope the readers do, too!

Heading into a Busy Day in the Kitchen

I seem to be back on a roll again. Peanut butter cups everyday for the last few days: white chocolate peanut butter, milk chocolate peanut butter, dark chocolate peanut butter, and milk chocolate nutella, yum!
Today I must also make more loaded chocolate chip cookies, biscotti (thanks to my stepmother's awesome recipe), and muffins.

Since I have a busy morning with my family and company this afternoon, I have a small window to work my magic.
Better get back in the kitchen...

Back in the Kitchen

It's been a hot, humid, and hectic summer and hard to find time to stand over the stove and work...but I'm trying.
Guess it means the kids watch a little more television than usual, but that's the price.
I'm trying to get some early prep done for the Palace Theater event. I hope tons of people go to the event and see how great The Sugar Mommy is. I'm really looking for increased exposure, so I hope all this charitable giving helps.

Big Cookie = Better Taste

I've been playing around with my cookies and came to a not-so-surprising conclusion -- the bigger they are, the better they taste!
So, maybe that's a bit strange. I suppose you'd think that no matter the size, the cookie would taste the same. Not the case. I played around with different sizes and seriously, the huge ones really did taste better. Something about the way the cookie formed was more enticing than the smaller ones.
See for yourself.

Out of It

Looks like summer has gotten the best of me and I'm slacking on the blogging.

Fans of The Sugar Mommy, I'm sorry. I have the best intentions of getting back to business in the next couple of days. I have some big things coming up and that should keep me focused.

Keep checking the blog, the website, the facebook page, and twitter to see what I'm up to. I'm bound to be using one of those sites regularly.

New Website, New Stuff

I'm very excited about my new website made by Cara Creates. I finally have something that looks a little cleaner and more refined. Still no shopping cart, but if I get enough interest in shipping, we'll see. For now, you just need to call, email, comment, whatever, to get your order to me and you'll need to live within driving distance of me to come pick it up.

I'm looking forward to some upcoming events like the Palace Theater Wine Tasting that will feature The Sugar Mommy's chocolates on each table. Can't wait to show off some new items.

I know it's only the beginning of August, but let's face it, it's almost time to think about holiday shopping. Can't wait for local shoppers to check out my stuff at some great NH vendor events.
