Picture Perfect Picnics,  Raleigh, NC

Melissa started Picture Perfect Picnics in the Spring of 2020. She love picnics because you can learn so much about a region and culture by picking up some simple goodies at the local market. Without the fuss of preparing an elaborate meal or spending loads of money at a fancy restaurant, you can slow down and absorb the heart of a community. Stretching your bare-feet out on a blanket with some sumptuous goodies pulls you back in time, and heightens your senses. You begin to appreciate simple things such as the warm sun on your face, the smells of exotic flowers, the buzz of the locals chatting in the park, and the taste of simple, quality foods. Picnics take you back to a time when things moved at a slower pace you could spend your care-free days outdoors all day!

Hickory Heat, NC

Hickory Heat started from a 20 year old hot sauce recipe that Crazy Uncle Phil and the Doc put together a long time ago. All the peppers are grown in the family gardens in the good ol’ soil next to Lake Hickory. Over the years it has been tested and tried by many friends and family members who all agree on one thing, this is the good stuff. Always fresh, always delicious, and of course, always hot. They decided to share this amazing hot sauce with the rest of the world. From their family to your family, enjoy this spicy little treat with all of your family meals.
