It all began when I was a young girl, observing my parents baking homemade bread every weekend and preparing dinners for family and friends. The hit was always Pine Nut Pasta with a side of Focaccia & Salad. I would often bake during the weekends. My baking consisted of English Shortbread cookies, Blueberry Muffins, Banana Breads, Pancakes, Pizzelles and Cannolis to name a few. I would bake items to bring to family and friends for special occasions and holidays. I love preparing food for others, especially surprising friends with new baked items I'm testing in the bakery. Giving for no reason at all but out of love is something so dear to my heart. I never tire of the surprised and excited look from those who aren't expecting a present that day. The joy of creating and experimenting is something I absolutely love - ultimately creating food items that are not only delicious but healthier options as well that you wouldn't even realize by tasting. Pure ingredients are important to me - living a healthy lifestyle with a treat here and there. I continue to give back to the community and my goal is to inspire others to always choose to give - even if it's just a smile.
Love often, be blessed,
never. stop. dreaming.
