You guys, I am seriously so in love with the site. It's adorable, professional, delicious, and most of all, totally captures the feel of Tartlet!

It's glooorious! It makes my heart smile. My arms are covered in goosebumps right now!

Dudes it's for real 2013!

Holy crap! It's actually 2013! How did that even happen? Last year went by SO FAST! As the inaugural year of Tartlet Bakery, I have to say it was full of support, encouragement, awesomeness and TONS of learning experiences! I really couldn't have asked for a better year. Thank you to everyone who has been involved in the Tartlet process and growth. I can't even put into words how much I appreciate it. Actually...I'm gonna try. Here are several words that make me think of you wonderful people:

Big hearts

Big love to you all!!

For 2013 I have lots of ideas and I really want to see what I can do with Tartlet this year. I want to grow as a business owner, and I want Tartlet to reflect the things I've learned and the ideas I have.

One area that I would like to really develop is the allergen free / alternative diet area of baked goods. I have several friends and family members who are gluten free, vegan, dairy free, etc. My boyfriend and I have actually gone Paleo, which is a huge struggle as I am the owner of a bakery, but it's gotten me to really look at alternative baking methods and recipes. It's kind of fun!

I've already got paleo/vegan cookies up in my shop (and boy are they yummy). Kris and I actually prefer them to regular chocolate chip cookies.

I've also been trying to come up with a good brownie recipe. I've been getting pretty close, but am still tweaking it a bit. I've got the texture down perfect, but I want more punch in the flavor. They look real pretty, though!

So here's to another year of baked yummy goodness and fun in the kitchen! Cheers to you all!!
