Enchanted Sweets is an all-natural baked goods company free from common allergens such as wheat, gluten, dairy and soy. We have just given birth to our first baby and it couldn’t smell sweeter.

Believe me it took sometime to perfect the mixtures and play around with the sweeteners and spices! But our bellies were filled with lots of love and hope for what was being born.

Every new thing needs a fairy godparent, so Ganache Cafe in Hoboken was the chosen one. Being the Supervisor, I am constantly watching customers walk away with sad faces because we do not have allergy free goodies, telling them “chin, up they’re coming” only made me stay in the kitchen longer to make these beauties.

Are you as excited as I am? Wait! There’s more!

So… the theory behind Enchanted Sweets, is to develop what your imagination creates. So the mixture of these flavors could possibly be found somewhere is, but not likely. 🙂 To spark a little something extra, we developed “Mythical Adventures”… dessert replicas of favorite foods… the first one to complete?! Hamburger and Fries.

That’s right, I said it! Mini hamburger sliders and steak fries… don’t believe me?! See the wizard’s secret potion below:

Whew! I’ve think I’ve sent you into a state of shock or even tickled your sweet tooth! My apologies! But just for kicks, here is the final display at Ganache.

Wrap Up the Summer

I have a love/hate kind of relationship for cooking in the summer. I love making refreshing and sweet dishes but hate being in a hot kitchen. So I decided to make something cool and refreshing without staying in the kitchen for too long.

We are trying out new tortilla wraps that of course are gluten-free, the only complaint we have is the flexibility of the wrap. Today we’re trying Tofuyan…our reviews (not that flexible when cold, place in a pan for a few minutes on each side),

Here’s what I came up with….

I’ll call this one “The Green Strawberry”

3 fresh strawberries (sliced)
1/2 avocado (sliced)
Handful of spinach leaves
1 tbsp of spicy brown mustard

Now that I’ve created a vegetarian one, can’t forget a Pescatarian option…

Handful of Grilled shrimp seasoned with basil and cayenne pepper
Crisp sweet peppers (julienned)
Handful of spinach leaves
1 tbsp of spicy brown mustard

Ohhh yea, lunch time never looked so good! Not sure what to make, just grab some fruits and veggies and wrap it up! 🙂

We’re BACK, and better than ever!

Hey Everyone! I know it’s been a while since we’ve posted but I wanted to let you all know what we’ve been up to! 🙂

So let me begin by telling you LaurenAsh has been away for the last 2 months shaping the minds and bodies of today’s youth…lol. She made a brave decision to ditch Corporate America and take a position as the Basketball Director at a private summer camp in PA. Something that received my full support, because basketball is her first love. Unfortunately, I had to spend my summer without her, she’s been gone since the beginning of June, so when she comes back in August she has a lot of summer fun to make up.

No worries, I’ve been keeping busy! As you know, I also left my desk job as a publicist and started working at a local coffee shop in Hoboken, which I absolutely love! Although I’ve missed PR (can’t stay away, I have a few freelance projects)  I have been given the honor to be the Supervisor after just two short months.

I’ve been spending my days, mastering delicious a Caramel Macchiato with almond milk, believe me, making foam with almond or soy milk is a skill!

Oh and of course I’ve implemented my PR skills with promo days like “Muffin Monday”, “Tortilla Tuesday” or and “Spotlight Sunday”.

Who knew there was a technique to understanding how to make the perfect cappuccino or latte?

20130722-122036.jpgDespite the fact that I’m a slight perfectionist, I let my team have “dance time” during their shifts ans then its back to work they go lol.

Despite the transition with our corporate jobs, we are back to sharing our experiences as now full-time gluten-free and Pescatarian foodies!
