Too Fat Sandwiches has been perfecting its recipes for more than 25 years, offering thick sandwiches in half, whole, and jumbo sizes on homemade, freshly baked bread. Cold sandwiches, such as the Too Fat Special ($6–$10), are stuffed with leaf lettuce, tomatoes, onions, wax peppers, and parmesan cheese and are sprinkled with an oil-and-vinegar dressing for a tastesperience as sensational as a traveling carnival that transforms adults into weeping babies. Too Fat can also stuff children with the kid's meal, which includes a sandwich, chips, cookie, drink, activity pack, and kid's cup ($5), a critical layer of defense for little leaguers. Or, try any of Too Fat's hot sandwiches, including the Killer Pastrami ($6–$10). On Thursdays, Too Fat's Tri Tip sandwich ($5.75–$10) is barbecued onsite and topped with salsa or barbecue sauce.

Growing up, she wanted to be both an artist and a chef, so she followed her passions to pastry school, then to the kitchens of renowned dessert masters.

Stephanie preps sweet treats for any occasion—whether it's a walk-in cupcake craving or a large wedding. Her versatility is reflected in each cake's presentation: some are elegant towers with petals or ivy winding down the sides, whereas others are carved into fairytale castles, designer handbags, or even Homer Simpson. They come in flavors such as cinnamon swirl and confetti, and hide cream fillings within their decadent tiers and hidden sub-frosting crawlspaces.
