Here is yet another new found discovery of a beautiful and sweet southern cookbook!
Teresa Pregnall is a woman to be admired though her own accomplishments and her unwavering determination to begin a family business after retirement. Teresa had recently read a book called "FOOD FINDS" by Allison Engel. The book was about mail order unique foods. She decided to write to Allison with her idea of a small home bakery featuring her family loved cakes and baked goods. She mailed a poppyseed cake to Allison for a taste test. Allison published an article in the WASHINGTON POST about Teresa and her cakes and this began a new world for Teresa....she received 300 orders immediately!
Teresa noted, "My baking career began when I was a little girl. Like many lowcountry families, we spent our summers at our beach home, where there were always more guests than residents. Those were the "good old days," when most of our time was spent either having fun or planning the next fun thing. I was at my happiest when the house overflowed with people. It was during these summer fun times that I first tried my hand as a baker."
