Delicious 11 - Emily's Home Sweet Home

Updated 17 July 15: As I write this, there are known bugs/issues with the game. Some have been fixed, and GameHouse recommend redownloading the game. Check out the known issues HERE. I've redownloaded the game, and have now 100% completed it :)

Yes, I looove time management games. Time Management games are games in which you perform a series of tasks or processes as quickly as possible e.g. manage/cook/serve at a restaurant, stock/run a supermarket, babysit, manage a hotel, build/decorate houses. When I finish a TMG I love, I Google trying to find more like it. Also, when I say 'finish', I mean get the gold/expert score on every single level!

Today's game is...

I'm so excited to finally be playing another new Emily game! A big THANK YOU to GameHouse, who GAVE me the game, along with five copies for my own giveaway.

I chose to play this in Normal mode (for the first time round). Download a free trial HERE!


The Basics
The aim of the game is to help Emily in a restaurant (or house, garden etc.), earning enough money/points to continue to the next level/day. In some cases Emily will take a break, so you will play as one of her friends or family members. If you haven't played an Emily game before you're in for a treat!

Simply: 1) Make the products the customer orders. Some products are made in multiple steps with different ingredients/items. 2) Take the order to the customer. Make sure they don't wait to long or they will get angry (which means they will pay less or leave without paying!). If you entertain your customers, they'll stay happier for longer (happier customers give bigger tips!). Only customers that sit at tables/bars can be entertained (not customers at the counter). 3) Accept payment for the order, and 4) Don't forget to clear the tables ready for the next customer! 5) Keep on eye on some items as they run out and more will need to be prepared.

Along the way you will be able to purchase items from the store that will help (decorations, entertainers etc.), and/or you will be given help e.g. a Cleaner. Instead of Emily cleaning tables herself, the Cleaner can be sent to do that - this frees Emily up to prep and serve customers. The Entertainer improves customers' moods (Tip: If the restaurant is busy, serve customers at the counter first, and keep seated customers happy using the Entertainer) 

Bonuses: Extra tips/points are given if you collect money from multiple customers at the same time, if you serve complete orders, if you deliver multiple orders at once, if you serve a customer fast (Quick Bonus), if you complete mini challenges, and if you catch Carl the Mouse during the level.

Game Modes
Choose whether to play in Beginner, Normal, or Advanced mode.

Level completion
This time we play restaurants, with ten levels/days per restaurant. If you are playing the Platinum Edition there are six fabulous locations, giving us 60 levels! PLUS there are 30 extra challenge levels, bringing gameplay to a total of 90 levels!

Every level can be completed by reaching either one, two, or three star score. Complete each level's mini-challenge to receive a diamond (new feature!), and unlock menu items/products. If you do want to get all the trophies/decorations for Paige's room, you will need to complete all levels to three stars (The Graceful Ballerina trophy/decoration).

Emily's House/Diamonds
Diamonds are awarded when the extra challenge is completed during a level. Diamonds are used to buy items for Emily's house :) Click Emily's House on the Map to see new unlocked items for purchase.

Customer Types
Each restaurant has different types of customers. Customer type dictates patience and tips levels, as well as how complex they tend to order. Use customer types to prioritize serving orders, especially when you are busy. To view customer types, click on the menu while inside a level. I've also posted the types for each restaurant below.

Menu/Product Choices
In Delicious 10: Emily's New Beginning, we altered the menu to suit customer types. In Delicious 11 we unlock items as we play, then set the menu before the start of each level. In the below example, after level 1, glazed donuts are unlocked - these are faster to prepare than an apple pastry, so I will choose to use the donut on my menu instead. The ultimate goal is to unlock the items that are faster to prepare, give bonus tips, and, in some cases, don't burn as easily or are spill-proof!

While on the Menu screen, click any item to see the different choices.

Click on any locked item to see how to unlock it.

Your Tray
Your tray can hold a limited number of items - as you progress, the tray will get bigger and hold more. So happy to see that the tray now as divisions on it so you can easily see how many items fit on it! If you add something to the tray by mistake, click on the item to remove it.

Emily's family and friends are back! I have a helpful list of characters HERE.

The Shop
All six locations have their own shop. Emily can upgrade the restaurants with items that improve tips and the patience of customers.

Mini-Mouse Game
The mouse mini-game continues! Find Carl the mouse on every level for 100 points! Don't forget to listen for his squeak - you will get two or so chances to find him a level (Note: No visible mouse holes appear in this game, so there are no 'easy' finds). Check the Map to make sure you have found Carl for all levels. If you do want to get all the trophies/decorations for Paige's room, you will need to find all 60 mice (Carl, The Mouse Cuddly trophy/decoration).

Secret Game
There is a hidden game on the Map! Did you find it?? By levels 28, 29, 30 is a plane ride - click it, then watch the skies - you'll see Emily flying a plane! Click her and unlock: Emily's Air Race :)

It's a bit touch-and-go, but hold the mouse button/click to fly and go higher. If you hold the mouse button too much, Emily does a loop hehe There are coins to collect, and even Carl the Mouse gets in on the action.


Customer Types

Emily's parents, Edward and Evelyn, take a tour of the O'Malleys' Dream House... Yes, it needs a lot of work! Emily and Patrick plan to fix it up (they wouldn't have been able to afford it otherwise).

Thankfully no-one was standing under the chandelier!

A racket brings the family outside, where a blonde is yelling about her daughter not winning a pageant (uh-oh). She introduces herself as Sharon Stepford - Councilwoman, President of the Snuggford Hills Neighbourhood Association, and the O'Malleys' neighbour.

Stepford Wife, errr, I mean Sharon Stepford ;) knows exactly who Emily is... That's why she picked Emily to run the Delicious Foundation Fundraiser. Emily is NOT prepared for that! But she is pleased to be able to meet all her new neighbours.

Level 1, Mini-Marathon: Walk 100 yards (Easy)
At the end of the day Sharon stops by with her daughter Grace (who seems to be enrolled in a LOT of classes: singing, dancing...). Sharon has the nerve to ask Emily to "spruce" the place up a bit - Emily is planning to, but has been busy. Paige and Grace Meet (Memorable Photo Moment). So cute!

Level 2, Decoration Central: Put up the decorations (Take that Sharon :P )
Edward discovers there is wood rot in the house :( That's why the chandelier fell through the floor so easily. He gets the debit card off Emily so he can buy new supplies/tools.

At the end of the day Edward gives Paige her own bunny! Emily is not impressed (I'm guessing Grandpa didn't check with Emily first hehe). Paige promptly names her Daisy (which reminds me: where are Snuggy and Rosie??).

Level 3,  Speedy Service: Get 5 quick bonuses (Serve customers quickly)
Emily's BFF Francois visits! Turns out he was a tour guide in the Big City, but it wasn't for him (too many "complaints",  aka questions, from people hehe). Evelyn told Francois how stressed Emily was, so he's come to help out as our Cleaner! (Turns out he and Emily's mum face-chat every Wednesday night haha).

At the end of the day Sharon and Grace visit. Sharon has heard good things about Emily's decorations (phew!), so now she wants to tackle the safety issues. Emily takes safety very seriously... unfortunately Daisy chooses that moment to bite Grace! Sharon overreacts just a little bit... hehe

Challenge Level 1, Infestation: Find all the mice and reach the target! There are 33 mice to find (yikes!). They appear in random order, two at a time - listen for the squeaks!! Don't worry if you miss any as there are plenty of chances to click (numbered below randomly).

Level 4, Tool Time: Receive all Patrick's tools (Chuck the Delivery Guy delivers three parcels)
Emily and Paige meet Moon Blossom and her son Hemingway. Emily doesn't have any of the foods Hemingway can eat (e.g. gluten-free, non-GMO, fair trade vegan corn dogs!). Moon Blossom suggests Emily come to the Farmers Market, where they sell the freshest bio-produce around.  She even offers Emily a "non-exploitative temp work" for the Fall, which is perfect timing for Emily (and the money they will need to fix up the house!).

It looks like Sharon's dropped by too - and put up an 'Accident Free' sign...

Paige is adorable helping out with the lemonade :)

Meanwhile poor Patrick is trying to fix the hole in the floor properly.

Challenge Level 2, Terrible Tray: Work with the slowly breaking tray! To start with the tray can hold five items. This slowly breaks down to four, then three, then two, then one spot! Use the ever-decreasing tray to still make your target for the level.

Level 5, Efficiency Above All: Serve only full orders (It IS more efficient serving an order all at once, plus serving a complete order gets you a bonus!)
Billy Beauford, Snuggford's Roller Coaster King, stops by the Garden. He leaves his son, Billy Jr, to help Emily out by entertaining customers with his skateboard tricks. Emily gets an offer to work at Happy Funtime Land for the summer! (And the Garden has been accident free for one day!). Tip: Ribs take a few seconds to cook. Don't leave them too long or they will burn! A new Grill can be purchased from the store for 150, which makes it harder for the meat to burn. 

At the end of the day Sharon and Grace arrive. Now Sharon wants to talk to Emily about the cleanliness level!! She announces the Foundation committee will be meeting at the Garden tomorrow, and that everything must be perfect. Paige and Grace play in the mud.... uh-oh! (We'd much rather have an Angela Original anyway :P ). Back to being accident free for zero days...

Challenge Level 3, Your Inner Botanist: Only flower orders during the entire day! I failed my first time trying this. I did unlock the White Oleander, so swapped out the Blue Hellebore (which earns a bonus tip). During my second attempt (sooo close!), I unlocked the other two flowers: Pink Columbine and the Red Rose. Using the three unlocked flowers this level was a breeze :)

Level 6, Food By Committee: Serve the committee their food
Patrick has finished the floor... but has just realised the woods don't match. Emily tells him it doesn't matter - that he could just stain the wood to match, but Patrick wants everything to be perfect. Emily comments that they have almost spent the money she made from selling to Wu (in Delicious 10).

At the end of the day Francois talks to Emily about his future - everyone is settling down, and he still doesn't know what to do with his life. What is his talent??

Level 7, A Good Start: Get your first star in the first half of the day
Emily meets Aaron Mahoney, and his daughter Marissa ("future Winter Olympic gold medalist, 2022"). He's come to check out Emily's "gnarly" food. Impressed, he offers her a job at the Ski Resort he manages! Now Emily has work for Fall, Summer, and Winter :)

At the end of the day (day two with no accidents!) Brigid and Antonio visit :) Brigid has bought a gift for Paige: a plastic softball set (she used to be an ace player when she was younger). "And now in news that surprises no-one, my mother-in-law is good with a baseball bat" haha (Memorable Photo Moment). She tries to show off her skills, hilariously hitting Antonio's car!

Challenge Level 4, Because I'm Famous: Don't lose any VIP customers. I found this one straight forward - make sure you serve the VIP customers first. Use Billy Jr to Entertain other customers waiting at tables.

Level 8, Hide and Seek: Find all the scouts
(Back to zero days without an accident! Thanks Brigid :P) Emily meets the local Den Leader and his scout pack: Earnest Templeton, and the Snuggford Scouts Pack 167 (complete with Earnest's daughter, Enid - the last on the left). Emily receives ANOTHER job offer, this time at the Scout Camp!

Paige, bless her, scares the whole Pack with a spider. They reappear randomly - find all eight.

At the end of the day Sharon visits with Grace - this time wanting to give Emily advise on how to get her "mediocre" tips up. Emily is fuming! Unfortunately Paige and Grace have a little fight over a toy...

Level 9, Happy Days: Serve five ecstatic customers of each type (This means serving an order to a customer while they still have all their patience/hearts - it doesn't include collecting money. And remember, there are four customer types)
Poor Emily is pretty upset over what happened between Paige and Grace - she thinks she doesn't set a good example. Patrick tells her she's a natural parent, and that soon she won't have to worry (about Sharon) as the fundraiser will be over.

It's at this point I bought the new cider vat from the Shop - it's spill-proof?! Hallelujah!!

At the end of the day Sharon visits. Emily is pretty fed-up, asking her whether it's about the menu, furnishings, entertainment, or lack of organic cruelty free dried seaweed?! It turns out it's about the revenues, which are now up over 15% on last year - go Emily! Paige and Grace desperately want a play-date (of course Grace has swimming and Spanish classes today! This two year old has a busier schedule than I do!), but the mums set a date for tomorrow.

Challenge Level 5, Cloudy Day: People will enter in a mood. I found this one straight forward - we have Billy Jr to entertain seated customers (serve counter customers first), and customer types to help prioritize serving: Seniors have High patience, Regulars and Kids have Normal patience, and Yuppies have Low patience. To add to the challenge, the serving tray is down to three items!

Level 10, The Full Order: Make every product in the garden! (I didn't wait for customers to order: I simply added every item to my tray and then removed them - this includes the bouquet of flowers that has one of each flower, and the three different ways the sandwich can be made)
Sharon drops off Grace (along with a folder of instructions). Edward and Evelyn take the girls on their play-date. This means Emily has to top up the lemonade today.

At the end of the day Paige and Grace run into the house... and Grace falls into the hole!! Oh no :( Sharon calls the city, and has the house declared uninhabitable. They've got 24 hours to leave their home :(

Customer Types

Emily and Patrick have 120 days to bring the house up to code... or the city will have the house demolished! The family are all going to help them get the work done :) And the O'Malleys will stay with Edward and Evelyn until then. Luckily Emily can start work at the scout camp today, because they are going to need the money!

Level 11, Keep 'em Happy: Serve at least ten ecstatic customers
Tip: Toast marshmallows over the fire - there is time to prepare other items before the marshmallows burn.

At the end of the day Den Leader Earnest, and his daughter, Enid, check in on Emily. There is a Super Scout award, and Earnest thinks Enid can win it. It turns out there is a bonus if Emily can make the restaurant really profitable - Emily and Patrick need that extra money!

Challenge Level 6, Safety First: Don't give kids any knives or matches. Funny this should be a challenge as I was JUST thinking how dangerous it is to give kids matches and knives hehe. Tip: Canoeing is introduced - keep an eye out for people needing a paddle.

Level 12, Backpacking: Repack the backpack
Ten scouts are off on an adventure - overnight camping. Enid doesn't like adventure camping, but she needs to lead an overnighter if she wants to have a chance at winning the Super Scout award (I think her dad wants her to win it, more than she does!).

At the end of the day Emily is back home with Patrick. Mayor (Maggie) Tyler arrives with the news that Sharon has pushed through a new order that any house as old as the O'Malley's with serious plumbing issues can be declared a public health risk and be demolished TWO WEEKS after it's been condemned! :(  The Mayor can't help them... Patrick says he'll do some research...

Level 13, New York Minute: Serve ten customers within a minute (I actually tried this a few times - I completed it after waiting for a bunch of customers to build up, and by having upgraded my menu)

Comment: I found the honey and almond granola bar a bit too hard to work out - maybe it's my laptop screen, but whether the bar had honey or not was hard for me to see! Thankfully the cherry and pecan bar is much easier to use!

Poor Enid returns from the hike looking worse for wear - she fell into a creek, after having an allergic reaction to some rye grass, after getting them lost! Francois is there to help her look on the bright side... (and to help Emily out as the Cleaner)

At the end of the day Emily sits and talks with Enid. Enid likes some of the scouting stuff, the technical/science/construction/craft side, but doesn't like the adventure side so much. Emily asks to borrow Enid's scout handbook...

Challenge Level 7, First Come, First Served: Serve the customers in the order they arrived. Make sure you remember which order customers arrived at the counter, bar, tables, AND the canoe!

Episode 14, A Different Specimen: Find the plants for Enid
Emily and Enid read the handbook together - it says all activities need to be supervised by a member of staff. Enid's dad is busy all week leading nature hikes... but Emily is a member of staff too :) Enid wants to do botany, which involves collecting a lot of samples. Her ankle is still sore, so Emily offers to get them for her.

At the end of the day Patrick wants to show Emily his progress in their bathroom... It doesn't go so well! They need to get a professional in to fix it... which is going to cost a lot of money...

Episode 15, Charred: Don't burn any food
Emily can't believe they are living with her parents! They think they have a few moments alone together... ;)

Where is Paige getting that phrase from?!

Abseiling is added today - very cool! At the end of the day Earnest announces to Enid that she's doing a skit tomorrow - Enid is horrified! Francois tells her that he'll take care of it...

Challenge Level 8, Really Messy: Some customers leave a large mess for you to clean 

Episode 16, Building Up: Hand Enid the model parts (There are eight parts. She will ask for them in a random order)
Enid's working on a hydrology model for her engineering badge. Emily is going to help by finding and handing the right part to Enid when she asks.

At the end of the day Enid and Francois do their skit - good ol' Francois has found a bunch of cheesy jokes that make everybody laugh. "A true friend is someone you can count on, no matter what" (Memorable Photo Moment).

Episode 17, Bigger Than Required: Only use two spots on your tray
The Den Leader has some great news - Emily got her bonus! Francois adds that there is more great news - Enid got her hydrology badge! But her dad doesn't seem to care much about that, nor do the other scouts. Poor Enid :(

Tip: Stir the stew/soup every-so-often to prevent it boiling over. There will be an alert to stir it if you leave it too long. At the end of the day, Emily is back at her parents house - Patrick has tried every plumber in town and none of them will take the job! Sharon has threatened them with loss of permits and contracts :(

Challenge Level 9, One Wrong Move: Don't waste any products

Level 18, Cleaning OCD: Clean three tables in a row, three times!
The winner of the Super Scout award is announced, and it's.... Marta Mariotta?! Enid isn't worried, but her dad sure looks disappointed - he takes her off to start working on her outdoor skills for next year!

Earnest and Enid return - Earnest has a sick stomach due to eating the wrong berries! Enid knows how to save him though :) See?! Being a scout isn't just about the adventure ;)

Level 19, Taking a Break: Don't serve anyone for 30 seconds
Patrick STILL can't find a plumber that will take on their job. No-one wants to cross Sharon :( Edward stops in to pickup Paige and a movie ticket drops from his pocket... 'The Grubwork Gang'! It turns out he's taken Paige five times - that certainly explains where she got that phrase from!! Edward defends the story (he loves it as much as Paige does). It gives Emily an idea...

At the end of the day Emily calls the Scout Leaders and tells them what happened with Enid and her Dad. They present Enid with the highest scout award for her bravery, the Medal of Heroism! Yay Enid (Memorable Photo Moment). Emily asks Enid for a favour... (could it be to help solve the O'Malley's house troubles??)

Challenge Level 10, Catch The Wave: Groups of customers will arrive in waves

Level 20, The Receiver: Receive all the packages (There are six)
Enid and the scouts arrive to help Patrick! She takes charge, talking drywall and supplies :)

At the end of the day Sharon arrives with the inspector... and they find NOTHING wrong :) The plumbing is newly replaced, as is the sewer line, and everything is working up to code! Yay Enid!

Enid and Emily hug - with Emily promising to visit the scout camp again soon :)

Customer Types

Emily arrives at her new job. Billy Beauford welcomes her, explaining that they will be running Happy Funtime Land's first ever End of Summer-Bration! Billy Jr will be helping as the Entertainer, and Samantha as the Cleaner.

Level 21, Let Me Entertain You: Entertain at least five customers
Emily's first day goes smoothly... except at the end Billy Jr and Samantha just abandon her - and litter! Meanwhile, back at the O'Malley house Sharon strikes again - this time the city wants greater highway access for the neighbourhood... so the house is going to be demolished to make room for the new road :(

Challenge Level 11, Sick Cleaner: The cleaner is absent today

Level 22, Food Fight: Clean up the food fight remains (There are 12 burger bits to find)
Emily arrives to find Billy Jr and Samantha throwing burgers at each other! She is not impressed. She tells them they need to get with the program - no food fights, cleaner tables, and work together!

At the end of the day Emily and Patrick sit down in the garden with the Mayor and Emily's parents. The Mayor explains that Sharon has the council under her thumb, which means the highway access measure is likely to pass :( The ray of hope is that if enough signatures can be collected from 'Snuggfordians', then the measure can be postponed until the city can hold a town hall meeting. But they need 100 signatures...

Level 23, Sugar Rush: Create 40 sugary snacks (I added then removed a LOT of funnel cakes to my tray hehe)
The Rollercoaster King himself stops by to see how things are going. Emily is honest - says things could be going a lot better with the kids. Instead of helping her, Billy gives his kids an advance on their pay! At the end of the day both the kids ask for the day off to attend a horror convention - the fun-park is too busy to lose both staff, so Emily asks them to take 1/2 day each.

Challenge Level 12, Party Hard: Several groups arrive that order a lot of food

Level 24, A Great Memory: Take 6 pictures of Mom and Paige riding the Ferris Wheel (Very easy - wait by the camera for them to go past. You can snap them twice at a time if you are quick)
No Billy Jr OR Samantha today! Evelyn arrives with Paige - Paige is missing her mother. The ferris wheel is fixed ready for the Summer-Bration, so Evelyn and Paige ride it :)

Back at Emily's mum's house, both Patrick and Emily had the "worst day". Emily complains about Billy's kids - they definitely don't want to be working, and she is starting to dread the Summer-Bration as much as them. And poor Patrick is having trouble getting signatures for their petition...(Memorable Photo Moment).

Level 25, I Need New Soles: Walk 1,000 miles.... I think they mean yards (Poor Emily hehe. Do lots of extra walking from table to table to make up the distance)
Billy ALMOST tells off his kids for missing work... He's going to be out drumming up business for the Summer-Bration, and leaves Emily in charge :) Samantha wants a sleep over in the Haunted House after closing - her Dad agrees, but ONLY if she works extra hard for Emily. At the end of the day Emily has to re-clean tables :(

Challenge Level 13, Infestation II: The mice are back. Catch 33 and reach the target. Same rules as the first infestation (numbered randomly below).

Level 26, The Repairman Scare: Hand the tools to the repairman (There are eight. He will ask for them in a random order)
The rollercoaster is being fixed today - Samantha and Billy Jr think it's funny to scare him with a fake spider. He drops his tools everywhere! Emily gives the siblings the hard word - work or don't get paid; work extra hard and get a bonus. Will they listen??

The kids do a great job today, earning their bonuses... They even thank Emily! Hopefully this is a sign of things to come...

Level 27, Fully Loaded: Launch three full rollercoasters (Six people fit into three carts to make it a full ride. They will ask for their photo before they get off. These are stored under the rollercoaster button)
Billy is back today - EVERYONE in Snuggford is talking about the big Summer-Bration Spectacular! The kids aren't happy to be working the last weekend of the Summer... At the end of the day Emily and Patrick arrive at their 'condemned house' to find a council worker boarding it up :( They still need more signatures...

Challenge Level 14, Are You Not Entertained?: Get 100 extra score for every table you entertain!

Level 28, Filled with Hot Air: Blow up the wacky waving inflatable arm man
The place is looking great - decorated for the Summer-Bration. Poor Emily is worried about the house :( And the kids are clearly up to no good... At the end of the day Samantha and Billy Jr at least have the nerve to look guilty about their stunt - customers demand refunds, and their poor dad looks defeated :(

Level 29, Money Maker: Get 850 in tips
The kids feel really bad about yesterday. They apologised to their dad, who said he forgave them, but he can't even look them in the eye. Emily tells them it's one thing to say sorry, but another thing to make it up to him. It looks like the pair are going to try... Emily invites her friends to help boost the takings :)

Enid and the scouts help boost the takings (did you spot her?) At the end of the day Billy checks the receipts and is blown away by the increase. The kids even refuse a reward?! Emily's definitely having a positive influence on them :)

Challenge Level 15, Money-Back Guarantee: Only ecstatic people give you points

Level 30, Keeping Healthy: Don't serve kids any drinks or fried snacks (You can still serve kids slushies)
Emily arrives at work to find all her friends and family gathered. It turns out Samantha and Billy Jr talked to their dad about letting them gather signatures!! (Memorable Photo Moment)

At the end of the day Sharon is getting ready to bulldoze the O'Malley's house! The gang arrive just in time - they have 1000 verified signatures, so Sharon will have to wait for the council meeting. Before Sharon leaves she threatens the Mayor with the upcoming elections!

Customer Types

As we head into Fall, Emily starts work at the Farmer's Market. Moon Blossom welcomes here (after forgetting her name), and Hemingway is making a pine-cone bird-feeder.

Level 31, Bonus-Frenzy: Get 20 combos, chains, or bonuses
At the end of the day Uncle Antonio bursts in on Patrick, who is busy repairing the house. Antonio was trying to help... He has with him two people from the Snuggford Historical Preservation Society. They want to make the house an historical landmark! Antonio found out the house used to belong to an astronomer named Gekko Flasker... aka Geikensfleischer (say that ten times fast :P ). The house wouldn't be demolished, but it does mean it would have to be restored EXACTLY like it was, following all the Historical Society's rules. Oh boy...

Challenge Level 16, Hungry, Hungry Customers: Double orders for table customers

Level 32, Tent-alizing: Put up the play-tent
Emily is stressed about the house :( Moon Blossom offers her some lavender tea (very sweet of her), while Emily sets to work putting up Hemingway's toxin-free play tent. Thankfully Francois is back to help out as the Cleaner. Tip: With the fresh juices, you can keep eight pieces of each fruit ready/prepared. At the end of the day Moon Blossom and Hemingway manage to get stuck in the tent hehe And it looks like Moon Blossom has an admirer - Sun Lotus is his name, and he leaves her a beautiful sun catcher that he made.

Level 33, Smile More: Keep every customer at four hearts or more
Emily and Moon Blossom talk about the crush Sun Lotus has. Moon Blossom says he keeps asking her out, and she keeps making excuses. She thinks she doesn't have the time - she's never left Hemingway with a sitter.

At the end of the day Edward is discussing Johannes Geikensfleischer (who discovered a comet) with Emily and Patrick. He thinks they are lucky... but Emily reminds him that if the house becomes a landmark they might not be able to live in it :(

Challenge Level 17, Two's a Charm: Checking out a single customer at a time doesn't give any score

Level 34, Don't Worry: Reassure Moon Blossom (Watch for her five times)
Emily has the great idea to mind Hemingway for ten minutes at a time - to ease Moon Blossom into getting a sitter for a longer period of time. How kind of Emily :)

At the end of the day Emily is up late at night trying to think of a solution to their new problem. She reads that Johannes was often confined to the attic of the house, because he was unwell. Emily suggests they preserve SOME of the house... (I spot Snuggy and Rosie!)

Level 35, Out of Stock: Create 45 re-stockable products
Hemingway is getting frustrated at his mum's over-protectiveness (no climbing trees). However Moon Blossom is feeling better about leaving him with a sitter. At the end of the day when Sun Lotus visits, Moon Blossom's attempts at getting a date fail.

Challenge Level 18, Running Low: Everyone is ordering re-stockable products

Level 36, The Danger Zone: Hand Moon Blossom the tools she needs to build a fence (There are eight tools. She will ask for them in a random order)
Hemingway is never going to climb that tree! His mum has decided to put a fence around it, so she doesn't have to worry about him climbing and getting hurt. Moon Blossom get her date!

At the end of the day Emily and Patrick are showing the Historic Society their restored attic, complete with a replica telescope. All goes well (until the window frame falls off...)

Level 37, Stay Prepared: Never have zero stock of anything
Emily and Patrick are worried about whether the Historic Society will hold off making a recommendation to the city. And Paige climbs the stairs all by herself (with mum walking behind her just in case). At the end of the day we get their answer... :(

Emily and Patrick don't let it keep them down - they take Paige up to the attic to gaze at the stars :) (Memorable Photo Moment)

Challenge Level 19, Keeping It Fair: Serve a table, then serve the counter, then server a table...

Level 38, Save The Date: Serve Moon Blossom and Sun Lotus
It's the day of the big date. Sun Lotus arrives to take Moon Blossom out... and she suggests they stay at the Farmer's Market. The date doesn't go that well :( At the end of the day, Emily is up late into the night researching again - she has an idea...

Level 39, A Good Start II: Get the first star in the first half of the day
Sun Lotus visits to say good bye to Moon Blossom - it's almost winter and there isn't enough work in Snuggford :( Moon Blossom has lots of regrets - if only she'd been braver... That thought makes her kick down the safety fence and let Hemingway climb the tree! (Memorable Photo Moment)

At the end of the day Emily reads from Johannes own words about the house. She hopes she can convince the Historic Society that it wouldn't be true to Johanne's memory if the house didn't have a happy family living in it...

Level 40, Over-Stocked: Have every product fully stocked at the end of the level
Emily gets the good news that their house isn't going to be a landmark! All the Society wants to do is put in a stained-glass window in the attic to honour Geikensfleischer.

At the end of the day Moon Blossom and Hemingway arrive at the O'Malley's for a play-date. Annnd, fate brings Sun Lotus to the house to make the stained-glass window! That's the good news... The bad news: Sharon sneaks inside and calls her contacts - she wants to make sure the O'Malley's house is never a home :(

Challenge Level 20, We Want It Fresh: Products kept too long on your tray will spoil

Level 49, A Few Angry Men: Serve exactly eight angry customers. I let Seniors and Socialite Skiers get angry, aka down to one heart, because they give the lowest tip. Also, I watched for when they only ordered one item e.g. skis or when they sat at the bar.

Then they'll sing and dance until nightfall - repeating their devotions before the ascending moon!).
