Made from scratch is the only way I know.

My love of baking began in my mother’s Ohio farmhouse kitchen where she allowed me to measure flour, crack eggs and sprinkle cinnamon on scraps of pie dough from the time I was old enough to walk. Made-from-scratch baking was the way Mom did everything — from her summer’s bounty strawberry-rhubarb crisp to the loaves of crusty whole-wheat bread she baked each week for our family. 

And made-from-scratch baking is still the way I do everything at Sassafras Bakery, where I cultivate a blend of nostalgic American favorites along with an artistic flair for unexpected flavors and beautiful presentation. 

Passion becomes profession

I spent ten years in a career as a graphic designer before turning my lifelong passion for baking into a profession. It’s with a baker’s skill and an artist’s eye that I hand-craft each delectable treat just for you in the Sassafras kitchen. The result is a full and tempting menu of simple, delicious baked goods using only the finest ingredients, made with care.

Goods that do good

With a commitment to sustainable business practices, I hand-select only the finest ingredients — milk, honey, peanut butter and seasonal fruit —from local producers, including my own homegrown herbs. Kitchen scraps are composted, other waste is recycled and packaging is minimal, using recycled and corn-based containers. Sassafras Bakery also supports the community by making charitable donations to local organizations.
