The Shepherd Radio Interview

Hi friends, After sharing so much of this business with you and baking for so many of you, y’all really do feel like friends! We love taking you behind the scenes and sharing the backstory of Southern Home Bakery. I recently shared more of my story with The Shepherd for a segment on their radio show and podcast. On the show, I shared my perspective on business and the importance of taking small steps toward the bigger dream. The process is slow and definitely not glamorous, but I’ve seen the seemingly insignificant steps build something beautiful. Many of you know that...

Mother's Day Holiday Box - For Mom, Inspired by Mom

Mother’s Day is right around the corner! This day can hold a lot of weight, but it really comes down to celebrating the motherly influences in our lives. So much of my love for baking and hospitality comes from my mom. She has this effortless way about her - the way she opens her home, the way she makes dessert for no specific reason and the way she can listen and encourage like no one I know. She instilled in me this love of home and welcoming people into it. Southern Home Bakery was actually named by her and the message of hospitality...

Welcoming Fall, SHB Style

Friends, we are so ready for this new season! It’s so much fun for our bakers to pull out some cookie cutters that haven’t had much action in awhile. It's equally exciting for our decorators to create new designs. From fall leaves to patterned pumpkins, we love all the fall cookie creations! Plus, we may be drinking a PSL while working and we’re not mad about that! At the bakery and in my personal life, baking has a lot to do with the change of seasons. Here in Florida, the weather doesn’t always cooperate...but baking was something we could control. Growing...

How we stay creative (& have a ton of fun!)

It’s not surprising that we have quite the creative team here at SHB. But how do we foster this creative energy and stay inspired? One word - culture. Our incredible team of women here at the bakery is intentional about being excitable and loud and life giving and we just wouldn't have it any other way. It really helps that we don’t take ourselves too seriously. Don't get me wrong - we are very serious about our work. But boy do we laugh at ourselves, and each other, a LOT! Being quick to laugh is a core value and these women are so funny...
