I don’t think I’ve ever met a pastry I didn’t like. When I was a little girl and people asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up, I answered that I was going to be a donut girl because what else could be as wonderful than working with donuts?
As it turns out I did not become a donut girl. My path lead me elsewhere; however, I did develop a love for baking. Food Network was the channel of my choice; Nigella, Paula and Ina became friends. Cookbooks were the books that I read before sleep overtook me. Baking was a way for me to offer something special to people I held dear. Now I use baking to offer hospitality to guests in our Inn and hoping they will enjoy and savor it as much as I enjoyed creating it for them.
We have another baker at the Candlelight Inn who also delights in the art of pastry and anything sweet! She is made of “sugar and spice and everything nice”. A girl after my own heart – our daughter, Gabriella.
This girl is a natural baker. She can conjure up a delicious homemade cake effortlessly all the while keeping a cheery disposition. Much love and joy are incorporated into her baking and she delights in knowing that a little bit of sweetness brings happiness to others.
Our family, at the Candlelight Inn, relish in sharing good food and satisfying desserts with you. Come and stay with us soon. The bakers are in the kitchen and the sweets are in the oven!
