How We Started
I have been baking for years and years, from the chocolate chip cookies I made with my Mom many a weeknight in upstate New York to the endless batches of chocolate chip cookies I made with my own four kids. I always bake from scratch and use fresh ingredients, and I am always on the lookout for recipes that make goodies that not only look pretty but taste great.
When I learned of an opportunity to open my own bakery a half mile from my house, my daughters Geneva and Lily (then in 4th and 6th grade) campaigned hard for me to go for it. They wanted a place where they could meet friends on a cold afternoon, drink hot chocolate, and eat a cupcake. Given that I had no experience owning a business or baking professionally, this was a really nutty idea. But something kept compelling me forward, and now that we’ve been open a while, I couldn’t be happier about the choice I made!
