little bird baking company takes flight

29 July 2011


some things never change. like my commitment to following my own true north. consistently choosing that road not taken has likely taken me considerably longer than most would care to tread. but i’ve strived to savor the journey. guided by that true north—inspired by and celebrating my mom—i plan to spend more time blazing trails in my kitchen, bringing little bird baking company to life.

my mom was witty. hip. smart. generous. warm. funny. with a wicked sweet tooth and an equally wicked New England stubborn streak. with an open heart, she embraced and enchanted nearly everyone she met. from the beginning until the very end, my mom was my champion and confidante. it is in her honor—and with gratitude and love—that i dedicate little bird baking company.

for a while, i’ll be practicing tried-and-true recipes and perfecting new ones. with friends and family as judges, i know i’ll receive honest feedback to help refine and uplift my results. as always, i’ll share my experiences with you through recipes and stories. and i’ll keep you informed as this new baking adventure unfolds.

breathing life into little bird wouldn’t have been possible without the talent and generous spirit of my friend Todd Connor of yellow plum design. Todd gently kept me from sliding down many a slippery slope in these past 10 months; i’m blessed by his presence.

if you spot a cairn of chewy chai-spice sugar cookies along some byway, know that i’ve left it for you. i look forward to hearing about your adventures.

    airstream (read: trailer) food is all the rage in Austin. so let’s find one to renovate, and set you up roadside–say on S. Congress–late Spring to mid-Fall 2012. ‘Hello Cupcake!’ won’t know what hit ’em. (a rubber spatula, maybe?)

      ready when you are, m! i’ve loved airstreams ever since i saw The Long, Long Trailer (Lucille Ball, Desi Arnaz). and cupcakes won’t be the rage forever. perhaps they’ll have lumbered down the highway before we have to bludgeon anyone with a spatula? teasing. i’m sure there’s always room for one more sugar-laden airstream.

      happy to hear from you and hoping that means fires are far from where you are.
