When I asked my sweet baking assistant this morning as to how to blog this week’s LACK of baking she said…’Just say THANK YOU for all your lovely 2016 business… thus receipts’! In all sincerity, I hope to choose to see these upcoming tax receipt days in joy…we are truly Thankful for your business! Reality and scheduling have hit with a text from our accountant saying this week all must be turned in… It’s truly a God ordained week where we weren’t booked and we’re CLOSED this Friday and Saturday! Hope your week is LOVELY. IF you need us NEXT week (9/25-9/30) PLEASE book us online asap. We are booked 9/27 & 9/28 for a 9/28 early morning pick up with FOUR flavors of YUM…we’ll blog all the details next Monday 9/25. Remember, we only bake when we’re booked to keep our ‘waste’ and ‘waist’ down,- so head to our online order form if you need us…I promise it’s not scary! 🙂

‘Business hours’ | Determined by our clients…
We’re often asked on Facebook to publish our ‘Business Hours’… This is ALMOST impossible except for Mondays when we publish our ‘weekly baking schedule’! Basically, we can work backwards a bit meaning, we’re open for Saturday pickups normally between 10-Noon (we can often have your order ready by 9:30 if needed). We’re CLOSED Saturday from ‘NOON on till Monday mornings 8am’ (for faith, fellowship and family). We’re almost always on the phone verifying that week’s orders each Monday morning from 8-Noon. Other than that, we are at the ‘beck and call’ of those clients that have booked us for that week via the online order form. Whoever has booked us (at least a week in advance or at the very least by Sunday midnight, is how we determine our weekly baking hours and pick up windows. We can book your ‘baking and pick up’ ANY day of the week (except for closures), ANY time of the day (except Saturday Noon till Monday morning 8am), with your online order! DO NOT fret however, you can always order off the existing weekly baking schedule posted on Mondays. In the end, YOU, the client, determines our weekly baking schedule, other than closures.
We’re humbled to bake for you and yours and ‘Thank You’ dearly for your online orders. Thank you ever so much for allowing us to bake for you, we promise to do our very best to make your experience and celebration memorable!
20 HOURS| This was MY Dream six years ago…to work 20 hours a week baking, what I love! Now, this of course does not include holidays, as that’s not realistic. Why 20 you ask? Because honestly, I work another part-time job. These two jobs combined have me clocking in full time hours while also being the executive assistant to FOUR humans and three of these (our kiddos) DON’T DRIVE. This includes all three children’s carpools, three different school campuses, as no one qualifies for school busing and almost all extra curricular activities. Yes, I have fabulous ‘carpool mom help’, but ‘Ay, Caramba, ‘Oh My’! Sometimes, I feel as if I actually see myself driving down the streets going the other way… As well, I REALLY love serving my children’s schools and our church. Over the years, I’ve allowed those 20 hours to look more like 25, 30, 35 and 40 hours on a non-holiday prep week or holiday week. God has done something BIG in me in the loss of my beloved best friend and mentor Nancy McDaniel, who passed away January 18th after a 15 month fight against cancer. My heart (who struggles deeply with disappointing others) and my head have met head on…I WILL stay on task and ONLY BAKE a maximum of 20 hours weekly. I’m going to try to not miss those precious family moments. Did I also mention we’ve decided to dip our toes into the world of dance conventions and competitions? It’s my girl’s heart desire and I’ve finally realized it (after a few years) when I saw her literally dancing in her sleep… Life is too short and as I’ve learned recently via Nancy, aka our ‘CeCe’, that we are not guaranteed tomorrow. Now remember, I’m still working full time and I absolutely know I’ll work crazy hours during the holidays. However, once I’m booked a certain number of baking days weekly, I will close the others. My body AGE (gulp), mind and soul will no longer allow me to work into the wee hours of the morning or pull all nighters, yes, -my ‘ah ha’ moment. I’ve ALWAYS striven to be a concierge batch baker operating above and beyond the legal requirements of the Texas Food Cottage Law in a pet free, smoke free environment who values quality ingredients and crazy freshness… and I sure hope to continue! <3
NOW, more than ever, will we appreciate your ONLINE ordering in advance. It will be SUPER duper hard to stick to those 20 Baking hours, but we’ll be praying and trusting GOD to provide for both your and our needs! Please know that with notice (1-2 weeks preferably), I will do everything I can to get you on the baking schedule and look forward to baking for the BEST and kindest customers I could ever have hoped, prayed and dreamed of year’s ago! Seriously, YOU are…
