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.

Stories from the Kitchen: Taste and See

I celebrated my birthday last weekend. It was wonderful and the leftovers left me with a question or two. Find out what they are and how I'm currently answering them in this week's podcast.

Project 52: Shiver me dufuses

This date I pulled out a puzzle that I had bought for Joel years ago.  I put up a little camp table , and even devised a system to keep the pieces in place with some fabric, so we could roll it up and stow it.  I was all ready to go and then the reality of the puzzle set in and I realised, I don't like puzzles.  I was already frustrated and worn out by the darn thing and we were only a mere few minutes into working on it!  Instead of getting upset, we changed plans. The puzzle was abandoned and Joel went out for a shamrock shake from McD's and two cherry pies.  We played some MadLibs .  The one we bought for Hannah today was Pirate themed and the story that was the funniest included a peg elbow and a pet pencil sitting on your shoulder saying "Shiver me dufuses!" We even had a joke book that we'd picked up for Hannah and read a couple of terrible jokes to one another while shuffling cards for cribbage. A fun night full of laughter and green shakes.  Well, I&#

KAF No-Fuss Focaccia

I really like making bread.  It's fun to get your hands dirty, but I understand that yeast is a scary thing for people who don't have experience with it.  Somehow, I started using it when I was young and too immature to understand the fear that comes along with wasting time, money and energy.  I had time and energy in abundance.  My first real forte into baking was in the 7 th grade.  I must have cooked before then because I choose to see which flour rose the highest using a cinnamon roll recipe.  I made a lot of cinnamon rolls that year and when I turned in my report, there were questions asked of me that I had no idea what she meant.  Questions about the weather and the heat of the oven.  Things that I didn't know could make a difference in the baking of bread.  Lots has happened since that first memorable baking.  Today, I invited a friend over to make bread.  I was kind of concerned about the strength of the yeast, because we bought a huge stash of it last year someti
