How I got started. Well, I grew up in the small town of Burlington, Colorado. In the middle of nowhere, 13 miles from the Kansas border. Living in a rural community, I was raised with a lot of home-cooked meals. Recipes were passed down from my great-grandma to my grandma, to my mom and then to me. I always had a passion for baking.

The Colorado Cottage Food Act allows for the sale and serving of selected foods to the public that are prepared in the home or other unlicensed kitchens, with certain restrictions and training requirements. The Colorado Cottage Food Act requires "producers to take a food safety course that includes basic food handling training and is comparable to, or is a course given by, the Colorado State University Extension Service or a state, county, or district public health agency, and must maintain a status of good standing in accordance with the course requirements, including attending any additional classes if necessary." Safe food handling courses should include topics on safe food sources, personal hygiene, sanitation of equipment, worker illness, food temperature control, safe water, sewage disposal, pest control, proper hand washing, and control of toxins.
"Baking may be regarded as a science, but it's the chemistry between the ingredients and the cook that gives desserts life. Baking is done out of love, to share with family and friends, to see them smile."
