As you all know, the amount of baking has increased… which is GREAT but the day has finally come where we have outgrown our digs!! ThankContinue reading “Bittersweet Bombshell!”
My State Fair is a GREAT State Fair!
I LOVE the music from State Fair-but we all know I am a complete Rodgers and Hammerstein junky, so this is no surprise! I also love the concept of putting up preserves, baking a sassy layer cake and getting dolled up to stroll around the midway. Alternately, I could don camo cut-offs, 12 lip piercings and anContinue reading “My State Fair is a GREAT State Fair!”
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.”

Azalea Festival…we’re out.
Whilst BLOOMING azaleas are undeniably lovely in their 3 days of glory, I am not a fan. The lackluster green leaves, spindly branches and root systems from beyond-not my thing. I think we should switch to a Strawberry Festival! Think of the fun foods that would spawn! Anyway, my point is, WE ARE CLOSED SATURDAYContinue reading “Azalea Festival…we’re out.”
