For as long as I can remember, I've been obsessed with food. The way it tastes, the way it smells, the way it looks. 

While studying abroad in London in 2012 my love for food changed. It intensified. Suddenly I was teaching myself how to cook and bake, taking classes on food politics and marketing, watching cooking programs, and spending almost all of my free time perusing through markets and reading recipes, in an effort to perfect my own.

Upon college graduation, I entered into the world of advertising. Taking care of my clients' needs filled my time during the day but I looked forward to coming home and baking. My family, friends, and coworkers quickly became accustomed to devouring freshly baked treats based on the newest recipe or idea that struck me the night before. Starting a business was always something I contemplated and then after hearing, "wow these are good, you should sell these," time and time again I decided it was time to make my dreams come true. 

I hope these baked goods make your day sweeter.

Stay hungry!
