Welcome to Louisa’s Homemades- the perfect place to get scratch made baked goods that are always "patted with love." My name is Jessica. A former middle school science teacher, I left teaching to raise my daughter and pursue my dream of starting a home bakery. I come from a food family. You know- the kind that has food as the focal point of every family gathering, and a Grandmother who will not take no for an answer when asked if you'd like something to eat! My favorite foods have always been sweets. I try to live a balanced, healthy life-style, but when given the choice between losing those extra few pounds or having dessert- I'll always choose dessert!
Growing up, I hated my middle name, “Louisa.” As I've grown, I’ve come to appreciate Louisa’s timeless appeal and decided to pay tribute to this family name in my business. I absolutely love what I do, and I learned from the very best- my Grandmother. Whenever we would bake something together, she would always tell me to "pat it with love." I love this phrase, and it has stuck with me all these years because there is one thing I love more than dessert- feeding the people I care about and celebrating life's precious moments together. Let me put this passion to work for you and your family, so you too can celebrate with delicious, scratch made desserts. I am humbled by all of the support I've received from family, clients, and fellow bakers, and I am excited to see what the future holds.
