Organic Owen

Sebastian's birthday is coming on Sunday. I did not celebrate his birthday last year, and I will explain why some other time, but I decided this year we should do it with style. I was thinking that since about half of the kids in Sebastian's school are on GFCF diet, we all should go gluten free, and casein free, so nobody would feel excluded of different. I did not feel up up to baking myself, and Tanny suggested going to Organic Oven bakery. I have tried their delicious cookies before, and off we went to Brampton. Their cookies are fantastic, and professionally packaged, available in many health food stores in Toronto and I expected busy bakery, with fancy store front and maybe cafe, and a lot of people running around deliciously smelling work shop if not a little factory at the back. I was very surprised at what I have seen. It just proves that some people are more capable than others. The store was one room one woman operation. She was making cake, taking out cookies from the owen, taking orders by phone, packaging our order, working cash register, and all the time she managed to chat with us very graciously. She also comes up with new recipes, opens new stores, and takes over the world with her beautiful smile and poise. What a woman! Going on gluten free diet is very difficult at first, and if you add to it other allergies; egg, milk, nuts, it is very difficult to just have a cookie that tastes anything like cookie. Do not even mention a cake! And here she comes to rescue: Super Woman of Baking Goods Deprived. She happened to have forty little gluten free casein free cup cakes that were baked for somebody else, and I picked up some cookies for Sebastian lunches. We will be back.
Here is an article that will tell you more about that amazing lady.
