In March of 2011 I got laid-off from my previous employer.  After about 3 days of lying around doing nothing I got bored and decided to bake some cookies for a birthday to kill a day.

The next week I baked more for another birthday, and for a house-warming gift, since then I have probably made well over 100 dozen cookies for all sorts of occasions and I am always excited about the next possible project.  Like many bakers on the web, I am completely self taught, and love a new challenge.  All cookies are baked in my home with an extra helping of sugar & love (and almond extract for those who might have an allergy) and quality control is handled by my husband who is always willing to eat any broken product.

A lot has changed since I started, I’m off on maternity leave and loving being a mom to my sweet baby girl, Sophie.  It may mean that decorating cookies is a little more challenging now, but I still LOVE what I do.

  1. I sampled one of your cookies at a friend’s son’s confirmation party this weekend…very tasty! Although my boys were not able to try one, due to food allergies, my husband and I enjoyed the treat! Your cookies are beautiful…a true work of art! Susan H. @ The Food Allergy Chronicles

      • I may be able to change your mind about that! lol Next week, I will be embarking on baking Dairy, Egg and Peanut/Tree Nut Free Vanilla and Chocolate Cupcakes for my son’s Grade 8 Graduation. I already provided the class with their Confirmation Cake in May and made my older son’s Graduation Cake for his class 2 years ago. I have been baking for these students and my older son’s classmates throughout their school years. I am not so sure they noticed any of the baking was ‘missing’ anything. It has been a challenging yet creative adventure I wouldn’t change for the world…everyone deserves to have a ‘special treat’! Susan H. @ The Food Allergy Chronicles

  2. Kristen,
    The cookies that you recently made for the staff at my school were a huge hit! The staff loved them, some to the point of taking pictures to remember them before consuming them! Thank you so much.
