Thanks Troop 2903

A couple of weeks ago, I was fortunate enough to have Brownie Troop 2903 stop by and make a couple of treats with me.  We started the morning making quiches in which each girl was able to choose her own filling.  And while those were cooking, we quickly made chocolate chip cookies.  I don’t know what was more exciting to them, adding ingredients or scooping the dough out onto the trays with hopes of sneaking a nibble of the dough.  While the cookies were baking, I took them on a little tour of our bakery where they could see our walk in freezers and refrigerators (probably an exciting part of their visit).  Once the cookies were out of the oven and had time to cool, we squirted chocolate buttercream frosting on the cookies and did what any self respecting baker does; taste the final product.     Before they left, I packaged up their quiches for them, and added a chocolate chip cookie sandwich with chocolate buttercream frosting for them to take home and enjoy along with the recipes.  I hope that they had as much fun as I did, and I hope that I may be able to do it again.  Thank you girls for an enjoyable morning, and I hope to see you soon.

What Are The Sweetery’s Wine Sticks?

Now that the word is out about our Wine Sticks, I guess it is time for us to let everyone know exactly what they are.  The Sweetery’s Wine Sticks are a new snack created to compliment  your glass of wine as well as to be complimented.  They are made from a pound cake recipe and then, through several steps, transformed into a crunchy treat.  They are more exciting to have around than just a cracker, and they come in several flavors; Apple, Chocolate, and Cinnamon Espresso.  The Apple Wine Sticks pare nicely with White Wines, bringing out the fruitiness of each sip.  We like to spread our Pimiento Cheese on these Wine Sticks and top it with a poached apple slice.  The Chocolate Wine Sticks match perfectly with Red Wines, allowing you to taste the subtle spices.  They stand well alone or accompanied with fruits and cheeses.  And finally, the Cinnamon Espresso Wine Sticks go right along with any beverage of your choice.  Similar to biscotti, the Cinnamon Espresso Wine Sticks can be shared over coffee or tea as well as a nice Dessert Wine.  Now that we have your palates’ attention, we hope that you stop in and pick some up or let us ship a box to wherever you may live.  Thanks again, and Enjoy!

Grapefruit and Avocado Salad

Mother’s Day is this weekend and a refreshing Grapefruit Salad is called for.  If you are not up for that, try this dressing on a fruit salad with grapefruit, orange, pineapple, grapes and mandarin oranges.  Beautiful and Delicious!

Grapefruit & Avocado Salad Dressing

1 tsp dry mustard                                         1 cup Canola oil

1 tsp salt                                                        2 TBL red wine vinegar

¼ cup sugar                                                  ½ tsp celery seed

2 tsp grated onion                                        Paprika

Mix mustard, salt, and sugar in small deep bowl.  Add onion to make a smooth paste.  Add Canola oil, dripping in a little at a time and beating constantly.  The dressing will be very thick.  Thin it down with red wine vinegar.  Repeat until all the oil and vinegar have been used.  Stir in celery seed to taste and enough paprika to give the dressing a rosy color.  Makes 2 cups

Salad

Before serving, cut the avocado in 1/2, remove the seed, and carefully peel off the skin. Cut each half into 4 thick slices. Toss the avocado slices in the Salad Dressing to prevent them from turning brown. Peel the grapefruits (be sure to remove all the white pith), then cut between the membranes to release the grapefruit segments.

This is very versatile.  You can use mixed greens or just arrange the Avocado and Grapefruit on a platter.  We suggest arranging the Grapefruit and Avocado on a bed of mixed greens and topping with toasted sliced almonds. Spoon the vinaigrette on top, sprinkle with salt and pepper, serve and enjoy!

Happy Mother’s Day!
