30 Days of Joy Hath September!

We are the counselors and each week we have new campers that we are instantly enamored with and form friendships with, so that we are excited to see them the next year! Some campers this year were returning campers, othersContinue reading “30 Days of Joy Hath September!”

Eggin’ Me On!

As you may have noticed we have gone to a 6 day week.  In the beginning-I had visions of Sugar at 3 of the local Farmer’s Markets and cranking it out 7 days a week.  Weeeeeelllllll, after 8 months of being open now I have realized that this is not a feasible plan when I amContinue reading “Eggin’ Me On!”

Iced Coffee-You chill me to the bone.

Sitting in my little car, freezing Iced Latte soaking into my white linen shirt, cascading freely across my laptop and pooling in my Crocs I burst into howling tears-pounding futilely on my steering wheel I start the car, jam my sunglasses onto my face and promptly hurl them into the passenger seat as they areContinue reading “Iced Coffee-You chill me to the bone.”

This will make you believe in the Tooth Fairy…

As you all know, we had the mixer debacles. I was down to one mixer and like most small businesses that have only been open for 6 months I am steadily trying to GROW my business-not shrink it before we really got going!  I fretted and agonized and called my buddies at Cape Fear RestaurantContinue reading “This will make you believe in the Tooth Fairy…”

ConnorLoganPatrick-what? Who’s Irish?

So my foodielicious friend L.B. (www.lizbiro.com) made fun of me the other day because I totally bypassed Mardi Gras in favor of St. Patty’s Day.  I’m sorry! I’m a scone and tea hound-yeasted cakes with gritty sugar sprinkles do nothing for me!  So anywho-starting Friday we will be having Irish Soda Bread, Oatmeal Raisin Scones, IrishContinue reading “ConnorLoganPatrick-what?

It was a lot of fun, and yes,Continue reading “Cake Post-er Child.”
