Feature Friday - Nicole's Homemade Treats

Q: Tell us a little about yourself; what makes you so special…
I am a stay at home mom of two young boys, Zachary, age 6 & Gabriel, age 2 and a military spouse. My husband, Adam, and I have been married for 7 years, not as long as some, but a very enjoyable 7 years none-the-less! Adam is in the Army reserves and on April 4th is being redeployed. My family keeps me hopping, so I use baking and candy making as a stress reliever and creative outlet! Also, making so much candy keeps me from eating it (most of the time).

I am an avid reader; love to garden (I am itching to get outside as I write this) and my boys are the joy of my life. The only reason I have an Etsy shop, according to my husband, is so I can spend what I earn in other shops! I must say I am addicted! The way I see it, I help the economy!!

Q: What do you make/create?
Homemade, all-natural, preservative free, candy, cakes (locally), cookies, granola and pastries. I try to use organic products in all
of my products, but sometimes certain items may not be available.

Now onto the really important questions…

Q: If you were an appliance, what kind of appliance would you be? Why?
I would be my Kitchen Aid Mixer because it packs alot of punch in a small package.
Q: Who was the last person you talked to on the phone?
My sister.

Q: What’s your most embarrassing moment?
Laughing so hard that my drink came out of nose while I was meeting my husbands best friends for the first time.

Q: Movie star crush?
Will Smith.

Q: Black and white or a hazy grey?
Black & White.

Q: Who’s on your iPod?
Mix of everything: country, jazz, pop, reggae, blues, etc..

Q: If Luke Skywalker and Harry Potter dueled, who would win? Why?
Luke! He is a Jedi Knight and they rock.

Q: Best advice you ever received?
From an Aunt: My first born son was very colicky for 10 months, and I was alone most of the time. (my husband was finishing his clinical residency). "Nicole, put Zachary (my son) in his crib with his bedroom door ajar and go sit down for 5 minutes before you go crazy!"
(she made me see that it was okay to do that and I was not a bad mother).

Are you salivating? Me too!!
