A Word of Thanks

Wanted to take a minute and thank you, the readers, of this blog. A little over a year ago I started tracking the # of people who visited the site and, in the first month of tracking, it received about 288 visits. This year, over that same period of time, we've had over 4300! My hope for the next year is to build on that momentum and make even more people aware of it. The conversations that have started in the various posts has been great and will become even better as more people contribute.

Anyway, thanks again and please spread the word!

You are welcome, Jim. But really...the thanks goes to you. I check my RSS feeds every morning to see what's going on in town. Working at home and raising 2 kids makes me feel isolated at times. Thanks to this blog, I feel a bit more connected.
BTW, you know of any easter egg hunts going on this weekend?!

Local Baker Wins on Netflix Sugar Rush

Peri Anderson, owner of Brooklyn Girl Bakery, was part of a team that won the most recent episode of Sugar Rush on Netflix. I reached out to Peri to learn a little more about her bakery:
I started out taking a recreational cake decorating class with my mom when I was still living in NY. I loved it and moved to PA to be with my boyfriend (now husband), where I began interning for a bakery in Chestnut Hill. Over the course of 7 years I worked my way up from intern to pastry chef until I decided to leave in 2012. I do all of my baking in our home kitchen which is licensed and insured by the Dept. of Agriculture. Initially, I wanted to focus on wedding cakes so I immediately started contacting wedding venues in the area to see if they would include me a wedding cake vendor in their packages. I currently work with over 10 venues and several caterers in the area. While wedding cakes are my main focus, I also make cakes and cookie favors for all occasions.
