Doesn’t my title say it all?! Mom, now there’s a job! But hands down, the best one I’ve ever had. I have always enjoyed being in the kitchen, especially when I could share that time with my daughter, Taran. Growing up, she helped me make everything from holiday dinners to chocolate crinkle cookies. As time passed, I gained invaluable experience working with other pastry chefs. My specialty in the kitchen became more focused on personally designing wedding and all occasion cakes, and certainly my Gourmet Pretzel Rods. Family, friends, and craft show attendees have enjoyed the pretzel rods for over a decade, and whenever I make them, someone says, “You need to start a business!” The enthusiasm has endured, and so has my interest in starting a business doing something I love.
One of my favorite memories growing up is making those chocolate crinkle cookies with Mom. Wow, we made a mess but laughed the whole time. I went on to college and graduated from Webster University with degrees in Media Communications and Website Development. After gaining global experience in the corporate marketing world, I knew I wanted something more, and that ‘something more’ was to work for myself. During those years, Mom and I talked many times about how fun it would be to go into business together. With her confectionery skills and my marketing skills, we knew we would make a great team – “Mom, we can do this. Let’s go for it!” I have been fortunate to grow up with Mom's Originals treats, and now I am proud to share ‘Mom's Originals’ with you.
