I have always enjoyed being creative in the kitchen. Years ago my best friend and I were at the outlet mall in San Destin when I came across a gourmet apple, one dipped in caramel, chocolate and nuts. We were both hooked! I did some experimenting and came up with a delicious gourmet apple that we now sell at Delectable Edibles & More.
Over the years I have tried many different recipes and created a few as well. In our fast paced world, it can be difficult to find the time to bake and make treats. I wanted to open a shop that would be unique, offering handmade treats and sweets: white chocolate popcorn, puppy chow, different types of chex mix (sweet, original and spicy), praline pecans, chocolate almond slivers, turtles, chocolate marshmallows, smores, caramel and chocolate pretzels, cookies, oreo balls, chocolate dipped oreos and nutter butters, homemade hot chocolate mixes, and trail mixes to name a few. I began making baskets for all occasions filles with goodies. Somewhere along the way a few people said, "You really ought to open a shop!" With a lot of help and encouragement from friends and family I decided to open a gourmet food and gift store which has lots of handmade treats! We opened November 16, 2007.
I wanted to incorporate unique foods that aren't readily available in Dothan. We have put together a great selection of sauces, marinades, oils, bread dippers, salsas, salad dressings, dips, jams, syrups, flavored peanut butters, dessert mixes and dessert sauces that are sure to please a wide variety of tastes. We also have a gift section that encompasses items for newborns (and mothers to be) and up. We have a great selection of personalized or monogrammed items as well as have monogramming available. Our unique kitchen gadgets, serving pieces, aprons, cookbooks and hand towels are great for a Bridal Registry. We carry fun bridal items from Lillian Rose from gifts for the bridal party, the bride and groom, photo albums, toasting glasses and wedding organizational things.
Delectable Edibles & More is still evolving. I have been fortunate to hire a wonderful staff who also like to be creative in the kitchen. We were lucky to hire Mrs. Grace who has 30 years of baking and cake decorating experience (9 of those were with Grate Things). Her pound cakes are fabulous! But all of our cakes are great! We make cookie cakes, cupcakes, and cookies. We also bake our own cheesecakes, dessert bars (gooey butter cake, blonde brownies, brownies, lemon square, etc.) scones, muffins, cinnamon rolls, and breads. Check out our menu and catering menus for more information.
Anything is good dipped in chocolate!!! Especially fruit! Strawberries, blackberries, raspberries, grapes, apricots, peaches, and pineapple! Starting with a great chocolate can make the difference in tasting good and tasting delectable. Through trial and error of trying different chocolates, we feel that we found a great chocolate that helps make our goodies "delectable edibles".
As of March 5, 2009 we reopened at our new location which is much larger and has given us the opportunity to now have dining as well as take-out. Thanks to all of our customers who asked for that ability, we are glad offer that. We serve made from scratch soups, sandwiches, salads, quiche, crepes, pizzas, burgers, and a daily special pasta or casserole. We are making plenty of extras so customers can buy frozen ready to bake family size casserole dishes. Delivery is available. We have a party/banquet room and we would love to cater your event at our place or yours. We have an experienced event planner to help with all you event planning needs.
