Sweet & Simple on Better Connecticut

We were on Better Connecticut this past Friday, showing hosts Scot Haney and Kara Sundlun how to make some cool cookies for the fall season. This is great for the kids: Have them help you out in the kitchen to create and decorate their autumn eats. Come back here tomorrow for the Sweet & Simple recipe!

CT Bites Checks Out the New Sweet & Simple Store

"Sweet & Simple isn’t just your neighborhood cookie and brownie bake shop. They are continually adding items to their menu and now offer dinner rolls, and challah. Her new breakfast offerings are wildly popular and now incorporate almond rings and pecan Danish. While I was there last Saturday the doughnut muffins were flying off the counters. Children just love them! Looking for a more savory treat? Her customers cannot seem to get enough of her egg and cheese biscuits. A corn muffin with bacon and cheddar cheese is the latest item to be added to the ever growing list of delectable treats."

Connecticut Open House Day

The last 4 months have been a whirlwind of activity. The new Sweet & Simple® Bake Shop has been a tremendous undertaking and both more work and more fun than I could have imagined. A big thank you to my family, friends, employees and customers for the support. I look forward to being at work every day.

We have lots of new products (think gluten free and sugar free) coming over the summer and I am especially pleased to announce that The Farmer’s Cow and Sweet & Simple came together to introduce the new Naturally New England™ Ice Cream Sandwiches featuring The Farmer’s Cow fresh Connecticut ice cream and all natural cookies made by us. Wow! I love this news so much, can you tell? I’ve sampled all the flavors and just may keep sampling ALL summer until I can decide which one I like best! It would be silly not to, right?

The Farmer’s Cow and Sweet & Simple® Bake Shop are celebrating CT Open House Day, Saturday June 8th with events in the Northeast and Southwest corners of the state. In the Quiet Corner, The Farmer’s Cow will host a farm tour at Fairvue Farm in Woodstock. Stop by Fairvue Farms from 1-3pm to see a working dairy farm, meet the cows and learn about agriculture in Connecticut. Enjoy a wagon ride and free samples of products from The Farmer’s Cow including the all new Naturally New England™ Ice Cream Sandwiches, The Farmer’s Cow fresh Connecticut milk, ice cream, summer beverages and coffee. Fairvue Farms is located next to the historic Woodstock Fairgrounds.

In Fairfield, we will host an open house at 75 Hillside Road from 8am–2pm with complimentary cookies and free samples of The Farmer’s Cow Ice Cream Sandwiches. If you are local, please do stop by, say hi (even stay for a chat!) and enjoy a sample of the ice cream sandwiches and our cookies. Tell us what you think. We love feedback from our customers.
