My mom had an innate talent of making everything extra special. With her, everything always had an extra special touch. Halloween costumes were always homemade – I remember coming home from school, warming up one of her chocolate chip scones, and watching her sew the Halloween costume we decided upon together: Little Red Riding Hood, Curious George, Eloise, Madeline, to name a few. Homemade cookie cakes were brought to...

Hello, extended Sweet Butter family! Welcome to our new and improved website! Same coziness, just updated :)


My mom, Leslie, opened Sweet Butter 4.5 years ago and she still can't believe how many guests have been welcomed into her second home. Fun facts: the SB Scramble and Waffle recipes she would make exclusively on Christmas morning and other very special occasions, the Chocolate Chip Scones were my favorite afternoo...

Weddings are the truest celebration of life and love. They are hopeful, beautiful and full of promise. The sheer act of choosing to spend the rest of your life with just one person is wildly romantic; certainly well deserving of a party that goes out of its way to be both extraordinary and delicious. Memorable and seductive. Detailed yet humble in its focus on family and friends.

Congratulations Deborah and Tomas!


I had...

I'm crazy about Fourth of July Sparklers.


We have a stash of them at Sweet Butter that we adorn celebratory cakes, cupcakes & petit fours with.


When I was a kid, sparklers were my favorite firework because they reminded me of a magic wand. But they never lasted long enough. So much in life is like that…not lasting long enough. That is why I believe in (sorry for the cliche) living in the moment; and if those moments hap...

This is hanging in Mario Batali's NYC Food Emporium, Eataly.


I just returned from a much needed sojourn to New York City with my family to celebrate my daughter’s 21st birthday and my (eeek) 52nd.


The view from our hotel, The Bowery.


New York is one of the the most vibrant cities in the world. There is so much to do…and eat!


We ate and ate and ate. Walked a bit of it off strolling through the Alexander McQueen Exhibit a...

Minnesota collectibles abound at Sweet Butter. That is because my husband lives there. We’ve been enduring a long distance relationship (first a romance, then an engagement, and now a marriage) for 10 years. Many people say, “Now that’s the key to a happy a happy marriage! But for us, it is just plain difficult. There is so much we’ve missed these past 10 years, simple things like sharing a closet. But somehow we’ve man...

Sweet Butter got a new toy today, and she is over the moon. It is called a Low Boy. 


Our new Low Boy being tested for the first time! 


I don’t know why it’s called that. Maybe cause it’s lower than a fridge and sassy like a boy. It’s sleek and shiny as the new bike you couldn’t wait to ride on as a kid. Okay…maybe I’m going overboard here, but I tell you, this new piece of kitchen equipment has our line cooks in an...

Sweet Butter opened in 2010…and now it’s 2011! I feel so “established!”


The past few weeks has whizzed by almost as fast as we sell out of Nan’s Chocolate Chip Cookies, Mia’s Bolognese & our Chicken Pot Pie Soup. I truly think we have the best staff of any restaurant, anywhere. We hit the jackpot here, believe me. We started with 12 employees, and now have 36…and they are all, each and every one of them, AMAZING. I know...

If you've ever had a baby, then you know how joyful and difficult those first weeks can be. A blur of moments held together by a bond so strong that you are able to withstand the string of sleepless nights and colicky days that lay ahead.


Opening a restaurant isn’t much different. Your idea is fertilized when the lease is signed and then, quite suddenly, (after months of hard-work), your baby is there for the...

It has been a week since Sweet Butter opened her doors, but all those minutes, hours and days have just been a blur. I have been out of contact lens cleaner for five days, and the refrigerator at my house has never looked barer. 


I had a feeling I would be busy, but I never knew it would be like this. The only thing that I can compare it to is having a baby. Except a baby takes naps and doesn’t require grease drums...
