Stone Pro Finishing Touch a SUCCESS at Seattle Home Show
 
David recently went to Seattle to show off the Stone Pro Products at a home show for a new distributor. 
 
We coated a large granite table with Finishing Touch then slid the can of Finishing Touch across the table, we applied mud on the table, wiped it off with a dry towel and buffed it out, and the can still slid across the table. We sold out of this product quickly!
 
Most countertop polishes are to oily and attract dirt like a magnet but not Finishing Touch -It has silica in it. 
 
So if your countertop has been cleaned with too much soap or too much of the other guys polish then the countertop should be cleaned well before applying Finishing Touch countertop polish by Stone Pro.

New disinfectant coming to ESP Sales!
 
David recently tested a disinfectant and mildew remover for the use on marbles, limestone and granite without etching and staining.   Unfortunately most cleaners will etch when you try to clean mold in your shower. Sporicidin will not! David has confirmed it and now the people at Sporicidin are able to get this product out to the stone industry. This may not work for caulking and silicones in the shower. You see, these materials are moisture resistant but not waterproof, thus creating a mildew in the material where it hides and is impossible to remove unless you remove the mildewed material (abatement). This product kills H1N1 virus and much more.
 
This product has a strong disinfectant odor until rinsed with water. Great for showers.

bpuddingThis Month's Recipe...

Pumpkin Bread Pudding Brulee
 INGREDIENTS
1 3/4 cups half and half
3/4 cup sugar
2 tbs (1/4 stick) unsalted butter, room temp
6 slices cinnamon raisin bread (each about 3 1/2 by 3 1/2 inches)
3/4 cup canned pure pumpkin
4 large egg yolks
1 large egg
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg
pinch of salt
6 tbs. whipping cream
5 tbs. (packed) golden brown sugar
 
DIRECTIONS

Stir half and half and 3/4 cup sugar in medium saucepan over medium heat until sugar dissolves. Remove saucepan from heat; cool mixture to lukewarm.
Spread butter over 1 side of each bread slice. Cut bread into 3/4-inch pieces. Divide among six 1 1/4-cup souffle dishes or custard cups.
Whisk pumpkin, yolks, egg, liqueur, vanilla, nutmeg and salt in medium bowl until blended. Add half and half mixture; whisk until smooth. Pour pumpkin custard over bread in dishes, dividing equally. Let stand 30 minutes, occasionally pressing on bread to submerge.
Preheat oven to 350F. Place souffle dishes in large roasting pan. Pour enough hot water into roasting pan to come halfway up sides of souffle dishes; tent loosely with foil. Place roasting pan in oven. Bake puddings until knife inserted into center comes out clean, about 45 minutes. Transfer puddings to rack and cool completely. Cover and refrigerate at least 4 hours or overnight.
Preheat broiler. Spoon 1 tablespoon whipping cream over top of each pudding. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon brown sugar over each. Broil puddings until tops are bubbly and golden brown, watching closely to avoid burning, about 2 minutes. Serve immediately.
