We just love baking!
People ask me how I became the “Cookie Princess.” My answer is very simple, my mother. I would always find myself next to my mom in the kitchen. We weren’t cooking dinner, we were creating desserts. From a very young age, I knew this is what I wanted to do.”
After graduating from the University of Arizona, I continued my education at The Chicago French Pastry School. Although I am technically a pastry chef, I’ve always considered myself more of a “Susie Homemaker” kind of baker.
I began my career working at Max and Benny’s in Northbrook, Illinois. This is where I found my true love for personalized decorative cookies. I brought my talents to Manny’s Deli in Chicago where I helped them start their own in-house bakery, focusing mainly on these decorated cookies I loved so much. Manny’s bakery business exploded, receiving thousands of orders. I knew I was on to something big.
These cookies not only make people happy but make them say “OMG!” every time they receive their order. The root of all my hard work and talent is my mother, so I couldn’t think of anyone better to call on to help. Together, we have the brains and talent to rise from “Cookie Princesses” to “Cookie Queens!”
