Why I Created Liz Lovely Cookies
“I grew up thinking a day wasn’t a day unless you baked something. My Grandma loved to bake, everything from pies with rhubarb from her garden to her famous banana cake which I just got the recipe for a few years ago (I swear there’s still something missing).
“My Mom is an excellent baker and confectioner as well. Easter had handmade chocolates, Thanksgiving sometimes had 4 different pies, Christmas had dozens of different kinds of cookies, and weddings had handmade butter mints.
“My Dad’s side of the family were all business owners. There was a family meat market (ironically) passed down for generations. Sometimes I feel like Liz Lovely was a pre-destined dream. But that’s how life works. When you least expect it, the path appears before you… and you bake.”
