Happiness is Homemade

I just love this time of year! Fall is in the air. The 'pumpkin' sensation has once again taken over, and the locals are selling their souls for pumpkin-spiced anything. I am a part of the madness, and I'm not ashamed to admit it.

As if right on cue, I connected with Angela and Kate - two talented ladies with a knack for baking and a desire to give back to their community. They started their business - 'Happiness is Homemade', in April of 2013 as a home-based baking venture.

Angela Fowler and Kate Johnston have always shared a love of baking, and they decided to share that love with everyone else! These girls are the real deal. All of their treats are made from scratch, so there is no skimping on butter and sugar!

Along with taking orders year-round, they also hold monthly sales and fundraisers, with proceeds from each sale being donated to various local charities. To date, they have donated over $1200 to worthy organizations in our community, including Heavenly Creatures, NLMA, the LSPU Hall, School Lunch Program, Greyhound Pets of Atlantic Canada - NL branch, and in November of 2013 they raised money to help a lovely dog named Mountain get the treatment he deserved.

2014 has been a busy year for the duo so far! They have had a number of very successful sales, which benefited causes like Bridges to Hope, A Place to Bark, the Janeway Children's Hospital Foundation, and special little girl named Callie.

"It is so rewarding to give back to the community! We love what we do, and knowing that we are helping a community of deserving people and animals makes all of the hard work very satisfying.", says Kate.

I am very excited to say that this month, 50% of proceeds from their October Sale will go to the Cerebral Palsy Association of Newfoundland and Labrador!

Angela and Kate have concocted a wonderful variety of Fall-themed treats, including Pumpkin and Apple Crisp Muffins, Starbucks Pumpkin Scones, Mini Banana Bread, Mini Pumpkin Pies, Maple Scones, and Pumpkin Whoopie Pies!

Seriously, what could make an Autumn day more perfect than a cup of tea and a maple scone? Nothing, I tell you! So go ahead! Order some treats, cozy up with your loved ones and enjoy all that this glorious season has to offer.
