I’m currently writing this post from my parents house. Matt and I came in for the Philly Food & Wine Fest and to celebrate Mother’s Day. This spring has been so much busier than expected so I haven’t been able to come here as much as I normally like. Even if I’ll be working a bit, it is nice to get out of my normal routine. and have some family time.
A few weeks ago I got to meet the lovely Victoria Shafffer, a young aspiring talk show host who is even prettier in person than she is in the photos. She is just twenty years old, but already so mature and hard working. The day I met with her, she actually had an interview for a radio show later that day. We had such a good time chatting for a couple of hours, but for me the highlight was having her try some Keep It Sweet Desserts samples.
I brought a few different treats to the meeting, but the Chocolate Chip Cookie was definitely her favorite. Straight from Victoria: “Keep It Sweets Desserts are the best cookies I’ve ever tasted! Lauren has even managed to improve on the classic chocolate chip cookie! It’s so good that it’s worth every calorie!” I now love her even more. Oh, and wondering why Victoria’s name sounds familiar? Her father just happens to be Paul Shaffer. Most people know him from his work on Dave Letterman’s show, but I also love that he was recently the star of “PS I Love You” on How I Met Your Mother.
