I had the pleasure to meet y’all at Christmas Carousel in Abilene Texas last year. I had a booth there as well with Sweet Life Cupcakes. I tasted several of your recipes and loved them so much I bought 3 of them. I just made the Sour Cream Enchilada Casserole for my husband and he absolutely LOVED it and asked that I write y’all to let you know. Even my kids ate it and loved it!! We will definitely be ordering more casseroles from you as well as trying some of the dips and soups. We are customers for life!! Keep up the good work!!
We appreciate the email Amber. Thanks! We will post this and ask our customers to look for your fantastic cupcakes at the various food events or on your website: http://sweetlife-cupcakes.com/ .

Soup’s on! Oklahoma City couple dish out samples, win over customers
Eating fun food is one of the best reasons to visit the Fort Worth Stock Show & Rodeo, although some of the items can be a bit pricey.
Here’s a tip for those on a budget: Wander through the Texas Room in the Amon G. Carter Jr. exhibits hall, and look for a nice couple from Oklahoma City. Wilda and Gary Harrison are regulars here, and they specialize in selling Company’s Comin’ soups and casseroles. The items are roughly $9 each, but Gary Harrison is happy to provide passers-by with as many free samples as they like.
On a recent visit, he offered a visitor no less than seven one-ounce servings of fare such as Grandpa Bo’s Baked Potato Soup, Old Mexico Cheese Soup and King Ranch Casserole.
All the soup and casserole mixes are made at the company’s headquarters in Hearne, just north of Bryan/College Station. It’s a family operation, and the Harrison’s are distance cousins – or, as Wilda Harrison says, “the gypsies of the family, who do all the traveling.”
As for the free samples, Wilda Harrison says it boosts sales tremendously.
“People like to taste what they’re buying,” she said. “Some people do make a meal of it, and that’s just fine.”

Just wanted to let you know that the Dinner in a Jiffy mixes I bought in Ft. Worth at the stock show are the most amazing meals. My husband loves them and so do I. We both work and sometimes don’t get home until 5:30 or 6:00 pm and by the time you feed the dogs, clean out the dishwasher and whatever else might need to be done, you’ve run out of time. These are so easy and so good.
