our cottage bakery
In November of 2021, NJ changed the law to legally permit sales of baked goods made in your home, to the public. Before that new ruling, you could bake at home and donate the baked goods to a charity but not sell them. In December of that same year, I was one of the first 400 bakers in the state of NJ to sign up for the necessary class, pass my exam, have my water tested and apply to have my recipes included on my license, and to become a NJ licensed cottage baker.
I learned to bake at a very young age, from my Mother, Barbara, a first generation Italian immigrant. There was always joy around baking! From a holiday tradition to home made pizza on a Friday night, everything was made from scratch in her kitchen. My mother was suspicious of industrial & prepared foods and avoided preservatives in commercial products even as they were emerging in the 50s and 60s. Fresh and home made was always best. My core values come from this belief. It's who I am and what I do. Fresh is best in all parts of my life, from foods to personal care products.
As many of you know, I made my fist skin cream in 1978 and now have expanded this passion to include my artisan personal care line of 100% natural products to my 100% natural baked goods today. You will never find added preservatives, synthetic dyes to make products look fresher, fillers and man made substitutes in Linda's Health Living products. I dont make cakes from a "box". I dont use pre-made ingredients at all. My commitment to you, my customer is that my products will always be made from scratch to be the most wholesome, pure and handmade product you can purchase!
