Retailer's Corner
A word of advice for the holiday shopping season~  Due to the slow economy, this year many retailers & their wholesalers have cut way back on the quantity of products they have purchased for the upcoming holiday shopping season. This is bad news for shoppers because if you take the time to think about your  purchase, odds are, when you go back to get it, they will be sold out.  My advice to you, would be to start your shopping early this season & don't hesitate if you find that perfect gift!

PS: While this is true of our industry as a whole and we have heard it over and over from our vendors. It has actually not affected our companies sales. Thanks to our fabulous customers, Sweetheart's Nest continues to grow and flourish, and because of that, we have more new products coming in for the fall shopping season than we ever have before. The problem we may run into though, is with reorders. So many shops and because of them, so many wholesalers have gone out of business that it may be impossible to replenish inventory when it gets low.  

Just for Sweetheart's

A little Summer Romance!
 
The sun is shining, the birds are singing and love is in the air. Nothing says romance like a private picnic in the park. You don't have to wait for the weekend and you don't even need to spend all day in the kitchen preparing the meal. And truth be told, you don't even need a picnic basket. All you really need is someone special to share the experience with, a quick stop at the local deli and a blanket. When was your last picnic for two? Why waste another lunch, trapped inside the local burger joint, when mother nature's restaurant is always open. Why not add a little romance to lunch with a surprise picnic for two. And while it is ok to plan and prepare, don't make a chore out of it. After all, the purpose was for the two of you to enjoy a romantic lunch together. Not for it to be so much work, that you don't want to do it again next week. So go ahead bring your sandwich and your thermos, but just remember when it's time to eat your fruit, it is so much sweeter when it's eaten from your sweetheart's hand!

These Lemon Squares are an addictive confection & make a refreshing summer treat!
 
Lemon Squares 
 
Crust
3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour 
1/4 cup confectioners sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 3/4 cups (3 1/2 sticks) unsalted butter, cut in to small pieces
 
Filling
6 large eggs
2 to 3 cups granulated sugar
1 tablespoon grated lemon zest
1/2 cup lemon juice
2/3 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
 
Confectioners sugar, for dusting
 
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. To prepare the crust , in a large bowl, sift together the flour, sugar & salt.  With a pastry blender or 2 knives, cut the butter into the flour mixture until it resembles coarse cornmeal.  Press the dough into a 17-by-12-by-1-inch baking sheet.  Bake for 15 minutes, or until the crust is lightly browned.
 
To make the filling in a large bowl with an electric mixer, beat the eggs until blended, then beat in the sugar.  Add the zest and gradually fold in the lemon juice.  Sift the flour and baking powder into the egg mixture and blend until smooth. 
 
Pour the mixture over the crust snd bake for 25 minutes.  Let coolin the pan on a rack.  Using a sharp knife, carefully cut into squares and dust with confectioners sugar.  Makes 4 dozen squares.
