Stack Happy Sweets

Stack Happy Sweets

Looking for the perfect dessert to share with others? You’re in luck! #HipNJ’s Lisa Marie Latino spoke with the founders of Stack Happy Sweets, Jeri Freeman and Lauren Ohl, about the concept behind their innovative treats.

Lauren and Jeri met years ago when their kids were little. Having discovered a common love for cooking—and each seeking  to bring something new and different to the dessert industry—they came up with the idea for Stack Happy Sweets. 

A “Stack” takes dessert to a new level by layering three different flavors. A Stack base can be a traditional brownie, sugar cookie, coffee bar, snickerdoodle, blondie, or red velvet. The middle layer’s rich choices include chocolate, toffee, cheesecake glaze and peanut butter. Finally, top your Stack with a variety of special toppings—M&M’s, sweet & salty pretzels, candied pecans,  and other unique choices. 

“If a cookie, brownie, and cupcake had a baby, it would be a Stack!” Jeri exclaimed.

Their menu features 16 original flavors of Stacks to choose from, or you can create your own assortment of these bite-sized desserts. Stacks can be color-coordinated to match your party’s theme, and they make memorable gifts to loved ones and clients alike. You can even  personalize your special delivery with a company logo! 

This unique, delicious and creative dessert concept is located in Montville, but you can ship your Stacks anywhere in the country.

Deerkill Day Camp

Deerkill Day Camp

Summer is right around the corner, and now is the time for parents to find their summer camp!  #HipNJ’s Lisa Marie Latino spoke with the owners of Deerkill Day Camp, Todd and Rebecca Rothman, about summer camps and what you can find at Deerkill Day Camp.

“Parents better start their search now and come on weekend tours to visit the camp before slots get filled,” explains Todd. Todd also mentions how the number one thing parents should look for in a camp is if it’s  ACA- Accredited. This means that your child’s summer camp cares enough to undergo a thorough peer review of its operation- from staff qualifications and training to emergency management.

Deerkill Day Camp is more than buildings, equipment, and scenery – it is a community, a vibrant space where each boy and girl contributes to the cooperative spirit that makes day camp such a magical place. When Rebecca’s grandparents Irwin and Mildred Rhodes founded Deerkill (Dutch for “deer stream”) in 1958, they wanted to create a community where children would be happy to explore their curiosity, develop new skills, form lifelong friendships, and, of course, have fun.

Now, 6 decades and 3 generations later, Deerkill Day Camp is still owned and directed by the Rhodes family and it is still that special place. Rebecca shares that their program is a really nice mix of both traditional and modern twists. They still have all sports that people would play at camp 20 years ago with an addition of new programs like movie-making, cooking programs and yoga. There is never a dull moment, you always have something exciting to do!

“Deerkill Day Camp is a nice mix of sports, arts and nature, an amazing opportunity to be totally unplugged, get away from all devices and be physically active getting in touch with outdoors.” – shares Rebecca.

To learn more about why so many families have turned to Deerkill Day Camp for their summer fun, visit them on their website. There you can find there virtual tours, videos and dates and rates. You can also follow them on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

Audrey Davis Get Your Goddess

Audrey Davis: Get Your Goddess

Get your goddess on with #HipNJ’s Lisa Marie and CEO of Get Your Goddess, Audrey Davis.

Audrey Davis is a strong woman on a mission. She hopes to encourage ‘Goddesses’ to come together and create a greater message for the younger generation. Get Your Goddess is an organization dedicated to celebrating what is RIGHT and BEAUTIFUL about YOU!

Audrey empowers women by teaching the goddess basics of embracing your goddess: Power, Beauty, Movement, Music and Achievement. Embrace your inner goddess, laugh at yourself, turn up the music, dance what you feel and love who you are.

Audrey creates and holds powerful workshops designed to inspire and motivate women to embrace their natural beauty and ignite their inner Goddess through movement, music and self-reflection. For her, “Get Your Goddess is moving through this world powerfully with confidence and designing the life that you love!”

Audrey discusses the reasons why it is difficult for most women to embrace their inner power. The underlying messages that women are getting again and again that they are not pretty enough, not skinny enough, not good mothers enough, not good enough at their careers. The fear within them that these messages create, stops them from embracing the goddess they have.

Audrey’s message to all women is that being a Goddess  is a mindset and a decision. When a woman decides to ‘get her goddess‘, she unleashes ‘a free & fearlessness to be who she is in all of her glory!
