Owner Susan Blouin acknowledged her company was a mess and in an interview blamed a mutinous staff for trying to ruin her by undercooking food and sprinkling allergy-triggering peanut products in the kitchen area.

“This could be considered very serious if any children got sick and hopefully would not die,” Blouin said in a letter to the Star prior to the publication of the article on June 1.

No pun intended, but I think the owner herself may be a little nutty. I am guessing that no one was sprinkling anything around the kitchen; she was making all sorts of allegations in her desperate attempt to blame others for her own shortcomings in business.

And while Blouin often asked drivers to use their own money to gas up the vehicles, she and her husband Greg, a director in the company, drive Porsches and live in a rented $2.2 million home.

Even as her catering company was crumbling around her knees, a defiant Blouin said she could not understand why people were upset that both she and her husband's apparent lavish lifestyle.

“So what? What's that got to do it. It's my money I'm spending,” an agitated Blouin told the Star.
