I was very fortunate to grow up in a place that had an abundance of fruit trees right outside my door.
Apricot, lemon, persimmon and even fig trees graced my childhood, instilling a love and an appreciation for freshly picked fruit that has stayed with me through the years.
Living in Hood River, every year as spring arrives with the blossoms emerging from the still of winter, I anxiously await the development of the luscious fruits of this unique valley.
I love to get up in the morning to start my baking. It brings me peace and joy to share my creations with you.
