Ask Dr. Bunny. Dottie’s Sweet Delights? Patty Brown, guest

Patty Brown, Master Confectioner and owner of Dottie’s Sweet Delights, joins Dr. Bunny to discuss all things sweet!  Patty shares the fun and interesting story about how her love of cooking turned into a wonderfully sweet business.

Dottie’s Sweet Delights was named after Patty’s mom, Dottie, who taught Patty how to cook and nurtured her love of cooking.

Patty tells us what makes her candies special and what sets them apart from other candies on the market. She also tells us why she uses only premium ingredients (Organic sugar! Pure vanilla!), and why this is so very important.

Tune in for a fun & taste-tempting interview!

About Patty Brown:

“I’ve always loved to cook for my friends and family, and I’ve always dreamed of having my own food related business. I grew up on a family farm outside of Portland, Oregon where my father was a hard working beef & dairy farmer, we participated in 4-H and my family ‘lived off the land’. We had an enormous vegetable garden and many fruit trees, so our summers were kept busy harvesting and preserving fruits & vegetables. Meanwhile, my Dad managed the ‘hay hands’ who assisted him with the alfalfa harvest. The hay hands often raved about the great meals they were served in our home, which were always followed by dessert. Christmas in our home was more about the holiday cookies and other treats we made only during the holiday season than the presents under the tree. My mother was an amazing cook, and I am so grateful for the time she spent teaching me her secrets. As a result, I became very confident in the kitchen.

I didn’t grow up making toffee. In fact, I began making toffee for Christmas gifts and other presents under 10 years ago. After I started giving the gift of toffee to my friends, they raved about it!  One evening while at the home of a close friend, she exclaimed “You should taste Patty’s toffee. It’s like crack cocaine in our house!” One of the gentlemen present asked if he could order boxes of toffee to give as Christmas gifts for his clients, and a business was born!

Here’s a great recipe for Classic Deviled Eggs

Ingredients:

  • 6 eggs
  • A dash of apple cider vinegar
  • 1 heaping Tablespoon mayonnaise
  • 2 teaspoons regular yellow mustard

Directions:

  • Boil the eggs in water with the apple cider vinegar.  Bring the eggs to a strong boil then turn the stove off and let them sit for a while to slow-cook.
  • After the eggs are done cooking and have cooled a bit, peel them gently, cut them in half, and place the yolks in a bowl.
  • If needed, rinse the whites gently and pat dry.
  • As the Joy of Cooking advises regarding adding ingredients to the yolks: “moisten them pleasantly” with the mustard and mayo. Mix until smooth.
  • Spoon the pleasantly moistened yolk mixture into a zip-locking bag, then cut the tip off one side.
  • Gently and evenly squirt the yolk mixture into the egg white
