Feeding the Homeless and making keylime pies and being recognized

On Wednesday and Thursday of this past week, we cooked and served dinner for the homeless shelter at Transfiguration church on Marcy Avenue.  It felt good to be able to help out people who are going through difficult times in their lives, and it was also sad and scary to see people who were close to our age and younger living on he streets and not being able to afford to feed themselves.  Our 24 year old niece came with us to help out and was a little shaken to see someone her age there.   It also inspired her.  She called a few friends, and they're going to get together and take a  night to donate a meal.  

On a lighter note, we are busy making keylime pies to our friends at Sel De Mer, and designing a Valentine dessert menu, and Chef Joe is getting recognized from TLC's Next Great Baker.  Yesterday, he almost fell in the snow, and someone yelled "to the box truck baby".  aaaah the price of fame.

We're still looking for that perfect spot to set up shop once again so that our fans can come in and chat while they eat our desserts.

Stay tuned for more updates...

Feeding the Homeless

On Wednesday, January 26th and Thursday, January 27th, we will be cooking and serving food to a men's shelter at Transfiguration church on Marcy Avenue.  This is something we started doing last year, and we want to continue to do so  for as long as we can.  We're even getting help from our local Boy Scout Troop, along with our friends in the neighborhood restaurants to help out. A couple of places are donating side dishes and we're cooking the main meal and dessert.

We're always looking for volunteers so if anyone wants to help out, please contact us.
