  • "Thank you for sharing your cooking talents with me today at the Somerset store. I felt like it was a personal demonstration, and I was the only one in the room. You have a God given talent to draw people in to you like a magnet. I really didn't plan on staying. I was in a hurry and didn't even want to stick around for the demo -- but a voice told me to slow down and stay. That was the best thing I ever did. I held on to every word you said and enjoyed every bit of your demonstration. I also didn't have any intentions of buying the book -- and then another voice told me to buy it for my sister. I was so very happy to have met you today -- I felt like a better person just talking to you. I appreciated your warmth and kindness. I most of all appreciated your hugs. Sometimes hugging a stranger reminds you there is love in this world.  My sister will be visiting this Thanksgiving and I will most definitely take her to your store. She will fall in love with it just like I did. I know you will continue to be blessed and I pray you have all the success in the world. Thank you again for adding sunshine to my day today. Have a super night!" Sonja
  • "At a recent Fall 2012 District Garden Club meeting hosted by the Dewitt Millennium Garden Club Linda entertained over 200 guests with her life story. She told us of falling in love with baking as a young child and the trials and bumps she faced along the way to finally achieving her goal of owning ‘the cutest little pie shop in the whole wide world’. Needless to say she awed the audience with her grace, candor, and humor while sharing her hints to baking that perfect pie. As friends I have heard Linda’s story many times, but I still find it inspiring and heartwarming each time I do. It was a lovely and entertaining afternoon enjoyed by everyone attending, thank you Linda."
