Happy Memorial Day!

GetAttachment.aspxHappy Memorial Day!! We will be at the Wrightsville Beach Farmer’s Market tomorrow and we hope you enjoy your weekend and take time to remember someone who served or to thank someone actively serving or retired.  It’s a brave and selfless thing they do.

This photo to is Jack Laine, my grandfather, from whom I inherited my love of sweets and the act of cooking for myself of for groups of people.  Most of my food memories as a child are centered around Grandpa activities-oranges brought to us from Florida, fresh hot doughnuts when we were staying at the beach, all -you-can-eat crab legs at Harbor Lights, smoked Mullet  in Fort Meyers, potato salad with lots of pickle juice and harassing waitresses at Hickory BBQ for the slice of Coconut Creme Pie. Grandpa would have loved the fact that I finally got to open my own bakery and would have really been over the moon to see our newest shop. Baked goods and fishing-two of his favorite things!!

And so, this Memorial Day, we thank all of our retired and active military for all you do. For those who’ve gone on- We won’t forget, we promise.

  2. Sam, Just saw this picture of Jack and your beautiful story. I surely wish he was still with us. Thank you so much, Sam. It was a very thoughtful thing to do. Grandpa would have been very proud of you. Hopefully, he’s watching down on us. Love you, Grandma
