Sweet Happening June 7th-11th

Hello Extended SweetArt Family!

Did you know our hours have changed? Did I mention that? I think I did but the heat has zapped my brain. Just so you know, we are now open Tuesday-Friday from 8am-6pm and Saturday from 9am-5pm. We have espresso/lattes (finally) and ice! Look at SweetArt, jumping into the ... ummm ...present.

Anyhoo, this week's special is a Falafel Wrap. Delicious little chickpea goddesses wrapped in a whole wheat wonder with all the fixins and a vegan sauce. No, no, please, don't thank us, just come in to see us...wax poetic, bring us flowers, chocolates (fair trade, of course:), and lots and lots of money. That will do.

It's official: Friday is Pie Day. Every single Friday we will try to resist from eating every pie we make. Savory and Sweet. Vegan and Vegetarian. As my numbero uno baker, Lisa, says, "We should be known for our pies. They're the best!" Or something like that. Well, she's right! I love pie more than anything else in the world (well, not more than my children and husband--most days--but pie is a very very close second). We will bring back the deep dish pizzas, and I feel a Caramel Banana Cream Pie with Real Whipped Cream coming to a store near you. Our store. This Friday. Shall you join us? We'd hate to eat them all on our own. We will, but we'd hate to.

Look for Feed Me to join this blog. What's Feed Me, you ask? Well, it's a recipe from start to finish located right here on this blog with photos. People always ask me for recipes (like I cook at home or something after working all day, LOL!). Well, after baking all day long, I actually do cook at home. Nothing fancy. Just Humble Exquisiteness (book title, maybe?). So here is my semi-promise (semi cause I'd hate to disappoint you), I will be posting atleast TWO recipes a week right here on this blog with photos. They will always be vegetarian (unless I totally give that up), and often times vegan and from time to time gluten-free vegan. So check in often. Cook at home (when you're not at SweetArt!). And tell me what you think (and only if it's good).

Ok, so I think we officially have enough people wanting to take classes where it's not just three people (myself included) looking at each other in an uncomfortable weird way. So, here's where you come in. Let me know what you'd like to take if you were to take a cooking class. Here's what I've been thinking:
  • Gluten-Free Vegan from Breakfast to Dinner
  • Frost that Cake like a Pro (cheesy title...work in progress)
  • Vegan Holiday Cooking (Food that non-vegans would want to eat)
  • Girls Night! Tipsy Drinks, Nibbles & More (vegetarian)
  • Brown Bagging It (lunch for you & the kids--if you have kids--if not, lunch for you)
  • And something else that would be profoundly well attended!
As always, thank you guys so much for keeping our dream alive. The business is changing for the better, things are great, and we couldn't do it without you.

Speak kindly to each other (it can change a life). Have more patience (especially when we're crowded:) And know how beautiful, special and in-such-great-shape you are! (the last one was for me...taste-tester guilt. Don't judge me)

grace & peace,

Reine, Cbabi & the Entire SweetArt Crew!
