They say...

...that puppies and cute children are the most commonly used trick in advertising to get people to buy something you are trying to sell.
I give you Bev's granddaughter Ruby Grace...
...the calls for commercials should start coming in any day now.

Whisper Linen...

We were shocked to learn today that Bella Notte is changing the design of their whisper linen bedding to have button closures instead of the amazing ties that they have been known for! We called Bella Notte and they said anyone interested in still getting the ties can still order them for a very limited time. If you want a duvet or pillows with the beautiful, reversible ties - let us know and we will place an order for you!

Rainy Days...

Rainy days make me want to...

Stay in bed late...

Snuggle up with a good book...

Invite good friends over...

and cook for them.

Today try this fun recipe to try from our new cookbook "The Ramos House Cafe":
Cinnamon Apple Beignets:

3 eggs
3 cups ricotta
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 oz apple sauce
1 pinch salt
1 1/2 cups flour
1 tbsp baking powder
1 Granny Smith apple, peeled and cored
Creme Anglaise (homemade recipe also in book)
Caramel Sauce (homemade recipe also in book)

Sift together dry ingredients and set aside. Whip together eggs, ricotta, brown sugar and apple butter. Dice apples and add to ricotta mixture. In a large mixing bowl, fold together ricotta mixture with dry ingredients until just combined (don't over mix). Heat frying oil to 375. Drop beignets by the heaping tablespoons into hot oil and fry until dark golden brown. Serve hot with Creme Anglaise and Caramel Sauce. Garnish with powdered sugar and cinnamon. Extra batter will keep for a day or two, refrigerated.

Martin Luther King Day

There is a neat movement that is happening this year that I wanted to share with all of you. January 18 is Martin Luther King Day and instead of recognizing Dr. King's great accomplishments by closing banks and other establishments, people are now pushing for the day to become a day of service. For what better way can we come together as a community than by giving our time and the gift of service to our community?
Come share how you will be volunteering your time this year and get 10% off your purchase on Monday, January 18!
