I make cakes, cookies and pies using recipes handed down in my family for more than a century. You will find that my goodies look and taste like what you remember when your Grandmother baked years ago. I use real butter and sugar, fresh eggs and cream in my bakes just the way I was taught so many years ago. My secret ingredient is the same as my own Grandmother’s was – the love I put into it!

Right now it is all liquid honey, but I plan to add cut comb honey next year.
