Anyone want to do this with me?

It seems like a pretty simple way to do a cleanse. There are 3 levels to choose from. The level I am going to do is the least intense (the renovation) and includes green juice, pineapple,apple and mint, spicy lemonaid, and something with beets....I absolutely love, love beets. You pick a 3, 4 or 5 day program and then they overnight all of the juices to you.......or if you live in NYC you can pick them up. The 3 day program I am going to do is $255. More information can be found here. I am planning on starting the first weekend in me if you want to join in on the fun.

Cookbook Challenge Update

I have been waiting for this book to come out for months so I was very happy to forget about my cookbook goal and buy this book.  
The first cupcake I made was the Smore cupcake on page 151. 

The cupcake was made with graham flour so it tasted like a graham cracker.  I made a chocolate ganache and put that on top of the cupcake.

Then I made a marshmallow frosting and put it in a pastry bag and covered the chocolate ganache with the frosting. 

 The fun really began when I pulled out my seldom used kitchen torch and toasted the marshmallow times. 

It was a fun baking afternoon.  I also made two things from Donna Hay cookbooks. 

From the book Flavors I made a fantastic roasted beet salad with mint (from my herb garden), feta and the best dressing made from balsamic, wholegrain mustard and pepper.  I love beets!

From the Classics book I made a potato goat cheese tart made with puff pastry and rosemary also from my garden. 

Snake Creek Grill

One night after work I drove up beautiful Provo Canyon with my friend Dannielle to Midway to try a restaurant I have never tried The Snake Creek Grill.  I loved it! 

I started out with these fantastic Onion Rings.  Holy cow they were delicious.

For Desert I had Gingersnap Ice Cream Sandwich with caramel dipping sauce.

I also had a bite of this Ice Cream Sundae with Peanut Brittle.  Oh my gosh so good.
Dannielle-we must go back soon!

Spotted At...........

I love finding our products at different stores throughout the country.  The last time I was in NYC I found some of my products at these two stores

Macy's at Herald Square..........where The Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade is held. 


Victoria's Secret Store on 34th street.  I also found them at one of the new Pink Victoria's Secret stores in Natick, MA.

I am working on a retro candy project for one of my customers. I have a whole pile of candy on my desk but I feel like I still need more. Does anyone have any candy they remember from their childhood. Please leave a comment if you have any ideas........
