A Brownie Brittle Wedding

Love Is in the Air & the Brownie Brittle! Weddings are special, and when it’s a Brownie Brittle wedding, it’s extra special. And when you add to it that it’s your son marrying our Brownie Brittle’s head of customer service, it’s extra extra special! Watching my son and his bride stand up to recite their

A Fancy Food Throw Back Thursday #TBT

I’m just returning from this year’s Fancy Food show in San Francisco. Yep!  I ate my way through it AGAIN.  I honestly don’t know how anyone gets through one of the industry’s largest food industry trade shows without a daily bottle of Tums (not a promotional plug, I promise).  This year’s trend seemed to be

Festivus for the Rest of Us!

Jerry Seinfeld’s TV episode covering his best friend George’s crazy family celebration of Festivus often reminds me of my own family’s holiday celebrations.  Over the years, we’ve invented a host of traditions to celebrate various holidays, including a Passover present exchange. Let me explain how that tradition began.  I live in a religiously-blended household.  My

Kitchen Disasters

It’s that time of year again.  Time for family and friends to gather around the dining room table admiring an amazing array of gastric creations to delight the senses.  Which means it’s also time for my family to discuss some of Sheila G’s finest kitchen disasters! I like to think I’m not alone in my

What Superheroes and Brownie Brittle Have in Common

Halloween is a holiday often associated with costumes, candy and celebration.  And for some, that makes it a favorite holiday.  It’s my favorite holiday, too, but for a very different reason. In 1978, my son Devin was 22 months old. It was one week before Halloween, and Devin played all day, then spiked a 103⁰

Sheila G’s 5 Must-Have Holiday Recipes

Holidays that revolve around giving and chocolate? Hello! These are my all-time favorite holidays. When my kids were growing up, I always made goodies to hand out to friends and family. I love giving homemade baked goods. Watching loved ones devour my creations is like getting a big hug in my world. And making things

My Favorite Bake Sale

Photo by Michael Simon It’s Pediatric Cancer Awareness month.  If ever there were two words that should NEVER be in the same sentence together, they are “pediatric” and “cancer.”  And the fact that there is a month dedicated to the awareness of kids and cancer tells you just how far we still have to go.

Brownie Brittle Goes Snack to School!

It’s Back to School time.  Or as Team Brownie Brittle prefers to call it…Snack to School. I know when it’s Back to School time because our offices fill up with loads of kids.  When summer camps end but school hasn’t started, many of the parents in our offices need a place for their kids to

Food Blogs, Glorious Food Blogs!

No matter how you slice it, I love food.  I love to eat it, make it, look at it, talk about it and read about it. And if it’s dessert-related, hallelujah!  Now enter- food bloggers. Food bloggers?  I am nuts about them.  I am so thrilled that food bloggers have become an ingrained “thing” in

Best Dressed Snack

I’ve never been one who thought I was stuck in the past. But over a year ago, discussions began regarding new packaging for my beloved Brownie BrittleTM baby. Why would we recreate something people love already? I heard no complaints or concerns so I was very resistant. Other experts around me had to hold my

Love and CHOCOLATE!

Someone asked me why I love Valentine’s Day so much.  I can sum it up in one word. CHOCOLATE!!!  On this day, chocolate = love!  Any day where I can express my love with chocolate might as well be called Sheila G’s day.  And this year, as always, I will be making heart shaped brownies

Getting Bronze at the Golden Globes

It’s that time of year again. A time when I get to play Cinderella by going to the Golden Globes to share some amazing decadent chocolate desserts with Hollywood. I have to admit, being treated like Cinderella is a lot of fun, but Hollywood is a place where everyone seems to look amazing ALL the

Happy Brittled New Year!

As a kid I always heard that time seems to move faster the older you get. I guess I’ve gotten older, because I feel like I just blinked and here we are staring at 2014. 2013 was an incredible year at Brownie Brittle™ and I want to thank all of you for having inspired me

Wishing You a Brittled Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving from Brownie Brittle and Sheila G

Wishing You a Brittled Thanksgiving Really?  It’s Thanksgiving already?  The older I get, the faster time seems to fly! I’m always looking for new and different recipes.  I love the tried and true staples for Thanksgiving, but I wanted this year to have a little bit of a Brownie Brittle twist.  So I present to

A Brownie Brittle™ Halloween

Happy Halloween!  The dressing up is ok, but let’s call it like it is…candy is my motivation!  It’s fun to go to the store and just look at all the varieties of candy.  The colors, the packaging, the brand new varieties.  My all-time favorites revolve around white chocolate.  I’m hooked! In my neighborhood, we don’t

The Family Business

You can mix chocolate and peanut butter.  You can mix apples and cinnamon.  But you can’t mix family and business.  Ever.  Isn’t that the rule?  Confession:  I’m not the best at “following rules.” And with that – today my daughter, Rachael, officially joins our office staff as a full-time employee and I’m absolutely thrilled.  She also joins her big brother (my
