"My Story!!"

I get asked time and again how I got into baking. Did I go to school to learn how to bake?  Did I work in the food industry?  The answer: No and No!  My working background is varied. I started out as an accountant actually!  I worked for a mechanical contractor, then a drug store chain, then did a short stint managing a chain of tire stores, then became a President & CEO of a provincial Crown Corporation and finished out my working career as President & CEO of a national transportation company!  Then I retired..........sort of!!

So...this baking thing that I now do is nothing more than pure passion!  I am self taught and it all really came about because my wife and I live in a small town and one day I said to her that I was really fed up that we couldn't get fresh bread anymore at our local store. She bought me a breadmaker. I didn't like the bread. We bought bread in the city.  It was just ok, but it didn't keep well. 

I finally decided that I was going to learn to make bread from scratch.  I researched recipes, read books, searched the internet and finally developed a recipe on my own that we liked. Then I moved on to buns.  Same process. Then I moved on further to cinnamon buns. Identical process but it took much longer to find that "perfect" cinnamon bun that we both liked! The locals all knew that I baked and I would get asked on occasion to bring some of my cinnamon buns to local events. At one such event, a lady from the city said to me..."I have never tasted a cinnamon bun like this. You need to go into business!!"  I laughed...my wife laughed.  Three months later, I started telling people that I baked.  I got orders. I told associates in the city that I was baking. I got more orders. I got a website and went on Facebook.  I got even more orders.  I started adding more kinds of bread and buns. I now offer over 50 kinds of bread, 50 kinds of buns and several cakes....and I am adding new baking products all the time. I love it!

Now I bake pretty well consistently 3 days a week and deliver on two days....to Regina. My business has grown to a level that I can personally handle. I get told again and again how delicious my baking is. I have never been happier!.... Happy that I can do something that occupies my time and that I love to do and that gives pleasure to so many people.  

So there you have it...that's my story!!
