When I was 7 years old I remember my mom purchasing my first cookbook at Ross. It was filled with many cookie recipes I didn’t have ingredients for, but I was in awe nonetheless. The Food Network was always on, and I began baking because of Sandra Lee and her show, Semi-Homemade. I began my baking journey with store bought cake mixes until I could afford to buy my own ingredients. Anything food has always been my love language, and I’m so thankful to have discovered F&F at my local farmers’ market! I felt a special nudge to support F&F part time operationally because I align with F&F’s values.
