Blog Feature: Kate's Pastries

sweet potato bread





This month's shop is not only one shop that I admire on the internet, but I have also had the pleasure to meet in person many times at my local farmers market. Kathleen Moka of Kate's Pastries has been baking every since she was twelve years old for her friends and family. However, she started creating pastries as a business since September 2009.




peanut butter cookies





Kathleen bakes a yummy product of mouth watering mini pastries. She also creates a line of gluten free products including a variety of sweet breads and cookies, sweetened with brown sugar, stevia and or raw organic honey. Her recipes are made with only natural and organic ingredients, free of bleached flour, additives, preservatives, artificial flavor or food colorings. Kathleen decided to make gluten free products after many of her customers asked her if she would consider making gluten free products so their family members could also enjoy. She listened and is glad she did, so their loved ones can also enjoy healthy and delicious baked goods without compromising taste!







chocolate hazelnut cookies





Kathleen's other hobbies which include reading her bible, cooking with exotic ingredients and spices, watching family movies, and spending time with her family.



Before starting her business, Kathleen worked in education as a family development specialist and a preschool teacher.



original nutmeg


She bakes her products in a commercial kitchen that is certified and approved by the Department of Agriculture.





Kathleen advice to someone consdering starting their own food business, first of all, make sure you have a passion for food, do your research on starting a business, ask questions from trusted professionals in the food business, have faith and work smart!



Kathleen has generously offered to give one of my readers a bag of one of her yummy cookies. Leave a comment of which flavor of cookies you like for a chance to win. The winner will be announced next Monday.
