Rich and I just got back from a wonderful weekend. We were in CT at Mohegan Sun where I was the judge for the final round of the Chef Battle in The Shops concourse as part of their Restaurant Week, and then we were on to Skytop in the Poconos for a dessert demo with my “Dolce Della Dea” Cannoli Kit -- it was awesome! Thanks always for your support and for watching our show, especially as it moves into this season's final episodes!
Now on to this week’s episode.
I was so excited about the Dylan's Candy Bar event with my cannoli kits. Yes, a little nervous because it was such a big deal for me; only a few years ago I was (and still am) a proud housewife, and now my delicious cannoli are being sampled and enjoyed at a nationally respected sweets store. Suffice to say, I needn't have worried -- my incredible, edible, cannoli were a hit! It was so nice to have a crowd full of mothers, fathers, children -- people who I never met before telling me how delicious the cannoli were as well as asking tons of questions about my life and love of cooking. But where were my family and friends?! Fashionably late, that's how they roll. I was so happy they eventually all showed up to taste and congratulate -- that meant a lot and I appreciated the support.
