In 2013, my small business met its demise due to a fire which was induced by bad electrical wiring and many people including myself, lost their small buisness. Some of us had only that to supplement our income monthly. Others did it as a hobby. but unfortunately, my small cottage-law bakery was my supplemental income. I am asking for help to start-up my bakery again as well as introduce the public to a few of my baked goods as a sample pack to grow the business and purchase a new oven.

Prior to opening a small bakery in a 20x16 room in 2011, I baked and prepared homemade meals daily. A few of my neighbors began to visit and tell me how wonderful the air is in our neighborhood and asked me if I would consider preparing meals for their families as well. We made our agreements and that was the moment I realized that, " I had a purpose" in my Subdivision. Not only for the families on my street, but several streets more were teenagers and small children visiting especially on weekends just for breakfast and indeed it was a break- fast meal for them.

   Baking is one of my favorite things since childhood and I've continued and learned more as the years passed by. I began to think about my family health and what is used in our baked goods from stores to extend their  shelf life oppose to having wholesome  baked goods like, breads, cakes, pies and cookies.

Also it reminded me of the holiday desserts and everyday treats made from old recipes from when I was a child and I continue to use some of those recipes today!  It is a treat to bite into one of our "Tea Cakes" and all the wonderful memories of grandma' in the kitchen to come flowing through the mind and heart again.

A few months later, another neighbor,  four blocks away came by while I was baking whole wheat and white breads... she asked for a sample and I gave her a loaf. Well, two days later, she and her husband came back and offered to help me start my baked goods business and that is how it started.

I had a few surgeries and lost most of my income as well as became extremely behind in bills which cause me to ask for the assistance of the public.

I am in need of an oven at this time as the one I owned could not be repaired anymore and I am renting weekly in order to bake. The cost of the oven alone is $2,300.00. Please help me in my endeavor while enjoying some of our best baked goods.. I want to share three of my top sellers in exchange for your help of a $25 - up donation.

1 - 1/2lb. loaf Pumpkin Bread (not your average recipe)

1 - 1/2lb. loaf Chocolate Cake (made from scratch)
