Heart Winning Cookies & Me

I am a mother, wife and self-taught baker. Professionally, I have worked in Finance for almost 10 years but my go to de-stressor has always been baking! It is true, chocolate can solve a lot of our problems and chocolate is the answer, doesn’t matter what the question is. Jokes aside, the intoxicating smell of freshly baked cookies wafting through our house, and the sight of warm, melted chocolate oozing from the cookies take me back to my childhood. Baking with my mom, and brother, even if it was just following the recipe on the back of Nestle Toll House’s chocolate chips back then, it was magical.

Years later, it brings me joy to see my kids, family and friends devour, within minutes, treats that took me a whole lot more time and labor to create. I would love to be able to extend this feeling and delight the community at large.

In society’s time of need, not all of us are in a position to contribute like our first responders (hats off to our heroes!), but each one of us can contribute our unique gifts and talents. We can all try to bring a little more joy, a little more love, and a few more smiles in everyone’s life. This is my effort to do so.
