2021 was an interesting year, wasn’t it? We spent a lot of time in our home, I got sick, we bought a home and moved almost 200 miles away and I managed to grow my business to a level I didn’t think was possible.

We are incredibly grateful for the opportunity to work with so many of the brands we love. In between packing and unpacking, I spent a great deal of time working on old recipes and creating new ones.
