Sinfully Delicious Baking Co. has been a life-long interest and hobby that has thrived into a business.
I am told that it all began when I was about three years old and started cooking and baking for my mother, even climbing the counters like a monkey to get to the high up cabinets in order to pull out the champagne flutes for a sassy breakfast in bed, Mother's Day style.
Experimenting with making healthier and allergen friendly baked goods was always of great interest to me. In college, I majored in Dietetics and Health and Wellness, but always had a passion for learning about the food science aspect of baked goods: how to make goods moist; how to make goods rise; what is gluten and how do you bake without it; how to make recipes vegan and still have them bake with the most similar texture, taste, and structure; how to make common baked goods a little bit healthier without anyone ever knowing. Post graduation, I moved to Costa Rica and found myself in need of some sort of income, as well as something to entertain me during the rainy days. I began baking bagels with a friend in our tiny propane tank run oven in our apartment: it fit four bagels at a time. Adventure and mishap doesn't even begin to describe the messes we made in that kitchen! Thereafter I moved into a different place with a dream oven that allowed me to bake twelve bagels at a time (obviously I was easily impressed at that time). My friend and I walked the streets of Montezuma explaining to the locals what a bagel was, soon making the move to the farmer's market, as well as our friend's restaurant, Vaca Loca. Bagels were a hit!
Upon my return to The States, I felt like a part of me was missing, so I started baking for friends and family. Eventually, the feedback allotted me the confidence to begin selling to people I had not previously known, as well as local businesses. I am continually learning and creating new recipes and enjoying every moment of it, even when I accidentally spill cocoa powder all over myself and the floor.
Sinfully Delicious Baking Co. has had the honor of being featured in The Ithaca Journal as a local bakery featuring healthier, organic baked goods. Our creations include local fruits, veggies, herbs, brews, wines and other great Finger Lakes items.
Thank you for learning a little about my story. I look forward to pleasing your belly!
