"I was born in Michigan (1 of 4 kids) and my mom was amazing - she put dinner on the table every single night. She was a really good cook. Now that I'm a mom, I look back and think 'how in the world did she do that?'. She instilled a love of cooking in both myself and my sister."
"The kitchen is a place to congregate in our house. There are definitely lots of stories told, and laughter, and lettuce thrown. We always talked about doing a cooking show, which I think would be pretty humorous. We have a good time in the kitchen."
"When we moved to Boulder I decided to take some time off to spend with my boys, rather than going back to the world of Private Wealth Management. I worked for a great company in Chicago but I decided to use the move as a catalyst to help me follow my entrepreneurial dreams."
"We had no idea what to expect when we first opened our stand at the Boulder Farmers Market, but it was a success! People kept coming back, week after week, which is so humbling! The first day I was in disbelief, I remember thinking 'people are lining up to buy my food'. It was really cool to see something I had dreamed about for so long turn into a reality. "
"Community relationships are so important to me. I think that our origins at the Farmers Market really helped me foster these relationships. We'll tell a farmer 'hey, we'll take the ugly peppers that nobody else wants to buy and turn them into a soup'."
"I always say I will take all the help I can get. As a new entrepreneur, I know what I don’t know, and that is quite a bit!"
