Now for the food. My personal favorite was the pesto grilled chicken sandwich on herb sundried focaccia bread. To start with, this isn’t that dry “focaccia bread” that has no flavor. This is made-from-scratch, fresh-out-of-the-oven focaccia with sundried tomatoes, fresh herbs and cheese. I could have eaten the focaccia all night and been perfectly happy. Then you add on the grilled chicken breast with fresh made-from-scratch pesto and cheese. Mmmm .... I am sitting in a Mediterranean garden looking over the ocean savoring every herb-enhanced bite. I was disappointed when I took the last bite. Normally I try to have a little taste of everything that I am sampling, but I couldn’t resist eating every last crumb of that sandwich.
Oh, and the sandwich came with Italian pasta salad with fresh delicious tomatoes, cucumbers and other herbs and veggies. Fresh. Fresh. Fresh. It had a nice, light Italian dressing (made from scratch). Are you seeing a trend here? Everything is made fresh and with the freshest ingredients. The mastermind of all these delicious dishes is Cat Vasquez, the master chef. She creates amazing culinary masterpieces and gets the flavor combinations just right. It is a family business, though. Everyone is involved and helps by sharing their expertise. Cat’s mom, Suzanne, is a master baker and jumps in to help with her signature items. Nemi helps with bakery items as well. And it works out beautifully. Everything that I tasted was fresh, flavorful and delicious. Cat told me that in the spring and summer, they grow all of their own fresh produce and herbs. So everything is picked fresh that day. Talk about heaven.
Now to the bakery items. I am always on the lookout for a great place to pick up something sweet. At V Sisters Creations, they are all about variety. So you don’t just get a brownie. No. You get Cat’s special take on a brownie (varieties change daily). When we went, they had Rocky Road brownies. Rich chocolate brownie, melted marshmallows, chocolate frosting and nuts. Ewwy gooey deliciousness. Another favorite was the fruit pizza. With fruit pizza, you don’t want a dry sugar cookie, but you also don’t want the cookie to get mushy. This was fruit pizza perfection. The sugar cookie was soft, the frosting was light and fresh, and the fruit was perfect. I loved it. My other favorite: cinnamon rolls. As soon as I picked up the cinnamon roll to take a bite, I knew it was a winner. It was light and fluffy. I guess you could say that I have become a cinnamon roll connoisseur. Even before I took a bite, I knew it was perfection. Just the right consistency, nice amount of frosting. Mmmm.
Now lunch, family dinners to go and bakery items aren’t all they do. I want to do that line “But wait, there’s more” because there is so much more. They do cookie kits for the holidays. So you can pick up 10 sugar cookies, a small tub of frosting and sprinkles for $5. Quick and simple. They also do gift baskets, catering and BBQs. After talking with them for an hour, I honestly believe that there is nothing they cannot do.
The great thing is that there is always variety. They offer a different meal or special every day. They offer take-out lunches on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays. On Wednesdays and Fridays, they offer Family Dinners To Go (or you can order a single portion). Oh, and they deliver for a small fee. To learn more, like their Facebook page at V Sisters Homemade Creations/Fiesta Catering or check out their webpage at www.vsisterscreations.com. Prices and pickup times are listed online. They also have baked goods in the bakery all the time. They are open for summer hours from 11:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. Check them out at 333 N. Apple View Drive, Santaquin. Their kitchen and shop are located at the back of the house.
