Caroline explains why she didn't want to be the face of The Brownstone Sauce.

I’m happy to see Kathy pursue her passion for baking by bringing it to a different level. I’ve been lucky enough to sample quite a few of her desserts, and I can say without a doubt that she is the real deal. Hopefully you’ll see more in the coming weeks. The only problem is as I watch, I want! Maybe I should place an order with her next time so I don’t have to deprive myself. I also like that she went old school and started at a neighborhood ice cream shop that’s familiar to us all. We went as kids, and we still love it to this day. I wish Kathy the best of luck; I hope she remembers to keep the samples coming!

The Fancy Food Show was a lot of fun, and a lot of work! Nothing makes me happier than watching my boys work with my brother and my nephew, Joe. They’re an excellent team that compliments each other. I can understand Chris’ concern, and I’m right there with him. Work hard and play later. However, I did enjoy watching the boys have fun. What Albie said is true; they have been traveling non-stop and busting their butts to get BLK out there. As a matter of fact, I’m sure we’ve even met quite a few of you who are reading right now at a BLK tasting somewhere along the way. If you have been to one, I thank you from the bottom of my heart for your support. It’s also true when Albie said they haven’t made a dime. All the money has been going right back into the company, and they’ve been working for pretty much nothing. Times have been rough, but the reward has been worth it. The BLK booth was gorgeous and Chris was right when he guessed that they would be busy. It was chaos, but a very good chaos. Chris, Albie, Christopher, Joe, and Gianluca knocked it out of the park, and I was so happy to be there and watch it first hand. Check out their website ( to see where it’s carried in your area! P.S. you can also get the BLK t-shirts there too.
