Tasty Tuesday:Perfectly Sweet



Before going low carb, I used to love to bake. I'd whip up some cookies or a cake just because it was Tuesday and the sun came up. But now, I'm just not doing it. And mostly because as hard as it is to scale a recipe down for three, it's even more difficult to scale it down for 2. But fortunately, we have found a solution.

Enter Perfectly Sweet!



It's a little bakery in downtown Plymouth next to The Cozy Cafe. We've had lots of great treats form there and by we I mean my husband and daughter and me sneaking a bite or two. The cannoli are just the right size for an after dinner treat, the cookies are not only cute but try as well, the cake with buttercream frosting as delicious, soft pretzels are a perfect game day treat, the list goes on. Here is one of the things that I really like about the store, not everything is always available. Some items are made once a week and when they are gone, they are gone. It shows me that Kurt, the owner, has a real sense of the rhythm of life and that it should be enjoyed, not mass produced and shoved down the pie hole with wild abandon.
We enjoy not only the treats that we get when we visit this shop, but the conversation as well. If you want a little treat to brighten your week stop by Perfectly Sweet, you won't be disappointed. If you are, bring your leftovers to my house, we'll finish them for you!

PS They are currently closed Sunday and Monday, you'll have to drop by some other day to get your sweets.

Our Daily Question from Ink & Willow

Did you ever have a book that you love so much because it's just right? That's Our Daily Question for me. It's a three-year journal to share with your significant other. How does that work? Well, each calendar date has a question and divided space to record your answer three times.  There is a great mix of fun, serious, thought-provoking, and heartfelt questions. Generally, the only ones that we've skipped over have been the ones that talk about all the time. It's been nice to be able to pick it up with morning coffee and have a conversation ready to go. Some we've even used at the dinner table to have family discussions.  It's a wonderful little keepsake, one that will have much more value when you finish with it than when you start. If you're looking for a special gift to give a newly married couple, yourself, or even a pair of love birds that have been married for over 20 years, this is a great choice.  I received a copy of this book from Ink & W

Hospitality for the Rest of Us: Long Distance

People are moving more and more. When I was a youngster, it was a rare instance for a friend to move away. Now it's me that moves away. We've moved a lot, especially when we first got married. It was something like five addresses and three states in the first four years of our marriage. We've slowed down a bit. In the midst of all that moving, we've made some friends along the way. I try to keep an open line in case of times of grief and celebration. One of the best tools I've found for keeping in touch with loved ones far away is Facebook. As much time as I could spend doing other things instead of checking it, it's the best thing I've found. It allows me to communicate with others, without having to call. I know calling is amazing, hearing people's voices, but for introverts, there are no body language clues for us to pick up on that help make our conversations easier. It's also why we prefer to video chat :-) Back to Facebook, some etiquette.

Stories from the Kitchen: Taste and See
