Someone at a dinner party asked, "How do you do so much and have that much energy?" I replied that I have a great team of people that helps me out and I have wonderful role models that inspire me, like Madonna. She’s a Rebel Heart.
Anyone who knows me knows that Madonna is as likely to come up in conversation as whey protein is...
They stir up the sweetest memories of my childhood. They make me think of people I'm close to that are not close by...
I love eating REAL food. And here's why I mention it...
People visit our store every day. And every day, I wind up having wonderful conversations about the health benefits baked into our recipes.
Every day, I have the pleasure of opening and closing the front gate at 144 W. 19th St. What a great feeling.

This would mark the beginning of my true adult life...
I love my life.
I love when it snows in New York City. I love a perfectly tied bow on top of a gift tin. I love texts from my family. I love the way my dog Elphaba looks at me every morning. I love...
When it comes to the bakery, for me, it goes whey beyond the snacks on the shelf. I'm thankful to everyone who has a sweet tooth and chooses us for their healthy indulgence.
I have all this energy to channel into the bakery and my personal life. Fresh ideas, new possibilities.
The upside of shaking things up is… allowing for more upside.
I can't wait to get the word out. What a huge milestone — a bakery started in my Chelsea apartment, can now be on the minds and in the hands of people in Miami, Montreal and Melbourne.
