AMARETTO HOT CHOCOLATE

Heads up! This amaretto hot chocolate recipe is for adults only. Even if you remove the booze, something’s kinda missing. Omitting the liquor actually takes away quite a bit from the intended flavor, but the chocolate vibe will not be lost. The amaretto adds even more warmth and richness without going into sweetness overload, and the tequila gives it a much welcomed kick. Also, this is my favorite hot chocolate recipe next to one other that I may end up […]

The Taylors

Aaaahhhhh – these two. I had quite a time figuring out where to begin the story of Anna & Wilson’s photos here on the blog. Heidi and her fellow photographer @ Our Labor of Love did a wonderful job of chronicling the day. As hectic as weddings can be, and as often as they can become quite the rat race to “get to the altar on time”, it appears Anna & Wilson’s day was beautifully breezy. There’s lots of understated, […]

Hi Guys!

Long time no talk, eh? There’s lots to show and tell, but in due time. For now, I’ve got a request. This is one you’ve heard before, but I hope you’re happy to hear of it again. The Caramel Taste Test – it’s back on, and I’m super excited! As many of you know, Caramel is one of my favorite things in the whole wide world next to Caramel (no that isn’t a typo including the capital C), wrinkly bulldog puppies, high heels/stilettos, Christmas time, coffee with lotsa cream, cheese fries, and beautiful kitchens. So this is likely to be my favorite taste test yet. In any case, I would like to get as many tasters as possible and location is not a factor. It’s nationwide, friends. We already have tasters from Washington state! I love that… So come one, come all! I’ve got quite a few flavors up my sleeve plus a surprise or two which is really just my way of saying thank you for holding tight during such a busy time for Sift!. I requested testers last summer, and ended up having to reschedule the tasting. For all those that hung in there, I really appreciate it. For all of the newbies, I welcome you with open arms.

Anyhoo, here’s the how: (But first, here’s an update on two very important factors based on questions we’re receiving: 1. The taste test is nationwide. Join us – wherever you might be! (o; 2. If you’re familiar with me and/or my taste tests, flavors and such are kept secret until you unveil what’s in your package. It’s fun.) Okay now —–>To reserve your spot in the Caramel Line, simply send a quick email (or fill out the form below) to info@siftatlanta.com that says something to the effect of “Tristen, send me that caramel.” For faster service (if emailing), please provide your full name, a contact phone number, and the address to where you want your caramels to be mailed. If there is a better time to reach you, please indicate that in your email. We will contact everyone, but please understand that spots are reserved on a first come – first served basis. You will be contacted as soon as possible to reserve your spot in the Caramel line at which time we will process payment of 9.50 + shipping (varies depending upon where you are in the US). Spots are limited, so the quicker you choose to join us the better. So far, roughly 40% of the spots are reserved. Reserve your spot!

I look forward to Caramel-izing everyone! Until then…

Serious inquiries only, please. If you have questions, please direct them to info@siftatlanta.com before filling out the form below. Thank you for your cooperation.

Love & Biscuits.

Be Inspired! Aurum and Shale @ High Meadows

And this is where it all begins. I was recruited to be amongst some seriously creative folk to bring life to High Meadows at Vinewood, a venue in Newnan, Georgia. Woo! We did a bang up job if I do say so myself. Let’s see the couple that was responsible for bringing the love to the shoot. Michelle Horton – that’s a serious lip! Rouged lips are a must for winter. Well, after looking at this lip, it is. Juli […]

Taste Test on Wheels – Holiday Edition!

Photos by the Lovely Janet Howard of Janet Howard Studios! I want to show you pictures of Janet at work, but I’m going to keep behind the scenes stuff in it’s place. She goes above and beyond to get these perfect shots. I now know a true photographer by their ability to twist, contort, and hang upside down completely suspended in mid-air. Janet’s a photographer fairy. I have to say that other than visiting Chicago during the holiday season, San […]

New Stuff for Fall!

Photos by Janet Howard Hi Guys. I so can’t sleep right now. Could it be the 3 cups of that dang delicious-oh-so-yummy British tea? *Cartwheels across the room – quickly poses for an impromptu photo – cartwheels back to computer* Ahhh – probably not. So let’s talk bread! I have some new items for fall and the gift-giving season, and they’re especially for my bread lovers. First up (and my personal favorite) is Apple Bread. Try it and you’ll be hooked. I love it […]

Sift! Taste Test on Wheels!

Happy Spring, Sugar Lumps! There are few things that compare to the joy of this whole “Desserting” thing. It’s tough. It’s fun. It smells good. And even for the times that things fall apart (oh the “I cried then but am laughing now” kind of stories I could tell you), it’s pictures like these that provide the confirmation I was working for all along. As many of you know, I conducted a Taste Test on Wheels last week, and it […]
