The Country Cookie was established in 2016 yet my passion for baking and the warm hospitality you will find at my cookie stand go back for years. My recipes have earned blue ribbons and grand champion honors in the Harford Country Farm Fair, the Maryland State Fair, and the Baltimore Sun holiday cookie contest. I use high quality ingredients and a caring touch to ensure the cookies taste delicious and are packaged with loving care. It is my joy to share cookies with you!
In 2019 I came alongside Missions of Hope International (www.mohiafrica.org) in Nairobi, Kenya to support them with the development of a Baking Skills Training program, which officially launched in February 2020. Through this training, students are empowered with marketable skills, self-confidence, encouragement to grow spiritually, and hope for the future. The program continues to grow and now includes a variety of certifications students can complete as well as culinary training. I travel twice per year to Kenya to offer onsite encouragement, share recipes, and dream of future growth of the program.
