Okay, so it's been a busy couple of weeks in the Sweet Home kitchen. First, there was some major spring cleaning to be done since the weather was just peachy keen here in Michigan, and then this past week the Sweet Home clan took a trip to Boston, where I was culinarily (yes, I made that word up!) inspired by the fabulous chicken parm at Giacomo's and the to-die-for cannolis at Mike's Pastry on Hanover Street in Boston's (predominantly Italian) North End. The perfectly crusty cannoli shells were full of the richest, smoothest ricotta we'd ever had, then liberally sprinkled with miniature chocolate chips, which made for a perfectly mouth-watering dessert. We really can't say enough good things about those cannolis...we got an extra one to take home and it didn't even survive the car ride. We might even have a special cannoli-making day in the Sweet Home kitchen if we start jonesing for them in the near future, which seems highly likely. If you're ever visiting Boston, I definitely recommend you try one. (Or, if you've got a hundred bucks to spare, you can order them by air mail on Mike's website.) Delizioso!
In other news, business is on the rise as more people get wise to Sweet Home's tasty wares--we've been distributing samples to friends, family, and coworkers with vigor! There's been so much inquiry, we're thinking it's about time to go live with this site and let people know what Sweet Home à la Mama is really all about. ;)
Until next time,
