Wow! This experiment is going to be fun. I heard from some folks, got some new orders, and realized right away that this will be our way of letting you know about my endeavor.

I intend to have my customers leave feed-back about the candy...what they think of it, new flavors, where they serve it, how their guests or gift recipient responded to it. I am gently expanding my candy-making hobby and as my friends and family can attest to, this candy project comes after making some life-altering changes in my family's life over the last two years.

So....for those of you who want candy info and pics...for the time being I can send product descriptions via e-mail and some photos via Kodak Share on e-mail. But today to start off I will let those who are visiting for the first time know about


My delectable treats should be served to, and eaten by adults only, as they do contain Kentucky Bourbon.

THE CLASSIC KENTUCKY COLONEL has a Kentucky Bourbon creme filling, hand-dipped in semi-sweet chocolate and topped with a half of a Southern pecan.

THE CLASSIC CRUMBLE is topped with a sprinkling of crushed pecans.

HOLIDAY COLONELS are topped with a Christmas tree, Valentine, Shamrock, Easter egg, etc.

BOURBON BITES are smaller bite-sized candies without nuts.

I can make this confection with any other liquor choice...some favorites are Creme de Menthe, Frangelico, and 99 Berries or 99 Bananas.

So welcome to candyland. Tomorrow I'll tell you a bit about my new super beautiful boxes and where I get them...also coming up THE ANDERSON AUCTION! Come back. Annie

Just got a call from my new best friend Miss Parks who creates the most beautiful jewelry...check her out at www.neck-laces.com. We met at an autumn street fair on W. 43rd St. where we were both selling our wares. She has ordered some candy for her brother and sister-in-law's 1st wedding anniversary. Thanks Chris. Listen people. Don't forget your Valentine's orders. My new favorite is the 99 Berries!! Any takers?


Saved by the bell. First client arrived and my day began like a shot. Couldn't remember what she said she wanted her name to be anyway. Now I know. Pink Pink Flower Pink. Yeah. "Kids are sweet, and so is candy". Later.
Dying to know how those "Senior Mint" Kentucky Classics went over at the Opera America Cocktail Party last night. And the extra bourbon bites I added for the waitstaff! Thanks John Curtis Michael for your order and EVEN picking them up this time. That was lovely. And speaking of lovely...when I told the kids I started a blog last night the older male child said, "Don't use my name"....they proceeded to tell me they wanted their child-of-blogger-names to be: him...Longhorn....hmmmm, don't ask......and the younger female child said

Blast Off!

Want to see what this looks like. Getting my act together to see if I want to blog my candy hobby. What do you think?
