Well, hello Autumn/Fall, Thanksgiving, Octoberfest, apples and cranberries...
Foot traffic this year has been slower than last, so I have been encouraging patrons to pre-order sweet treats and they have/are!! Half of my business has evolved into pre-orders. You request it, either to have a specific recipe baked or a memory of a particular treat that you would like to enjoy again, and I will bake it.
Rogerstv has afforded me the opportunity to spread my wings and cook. The premise for the segments on "Georgina Life" is pick up to go foods and prepared frozen foods and I will offer a healthy homemade dish, that will take 15 minutes or less of your time from prep to ready, to accompany the store bought choice. And a wine pairing too.
And now the throes of winter and holiday time, Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah and Kwanzaa-for which I've baked sweet potato pie, along with many orders for Yule Logs for Christmas and New Years Eve and of course pumpkin spice butter tarts.
Finally I have added a photo gallery of some of this years sweets and treats. So many more but so little time to do so. New years resolution one; try to do much better with this site to keep you informed on a monthly basis.
Although my hours are reduced, my commitment is not and business is brisk. I have found that the best use of my time to enable me to meet order obligations has been to reduce my hours for the winter season to focus my time on baking and filling of orders. I am available outside of business hours to meet customers for convenient pick ups.
Slower traffic has resulted in my discontinuing sales of bread products for now. I am committed to offering them again in the spring.
2018 will hold plans for new offerings to better meet community wants and needs, which I will share January 1st. So until then, all the very best of health, happiness and success this holiday season and for 2018.
