Like our retro logo suggests, this love of cooking and baking really started generations ago. Live Life Lusciously artisan bakery, incorporates family recipes from three generations: my Grandmother, my Nana, and my Mom. Every time I bake, I am celebrating the phenomenal women in my life who taught me the nurturing and connecting power of baking, sharing, and entertaining. I am thrilled to be able to share this with you!
It all started Christmas of 2012, when I began baking cheesecakes (the Grand Marnier Italian) and sharing /delivering these cheesecakes in order generate for me, a holiday spirit and connection to my family, back East. ( I would go home for Thanksgiving but not Christmas). Every friend and significant person in my life received a cheesecake, hand made, and delivered with holiday cheer by me and Sammy, my Shih Tzu puppy. It was a fond time to say "thank you" to the many wonderful people in my life and to spread the love of the season. Each year, the number of cheesecake gift requests would increase, and recipients would encourage me to sell them! So, in January of 2016, I decided to start Luscious Layne's which in September of 2018 was renamed as "Live Life Lusciously!"
I re-branded as "Live Life Lusciously," for the double divine gift of (1) sharing my artisan bakery of sweet indulgences, and the love that creates these sweet indulgences with the world, and (2) sharing via blog posts on this website, my personal journey and struggles in Learning to "Live Life Lusciously," daily, no matter what transpires in my day and life.
I desire to empower women, and to lighten our load and our hearts: through my bakery, I want to put my love on your table as if you had made it yourself, and through my blogs, I want to put love in your heart...for your self, and your wonderful life that you create. If I can share my pain and joy, create moments of enlightenment and laughter, and assist women to a better place that honors themselves and celebrates each of us as individuals... I would be very happy!
So Ladies, my Sister Goddesses, indulge in a bit of sweetness from my bakery, and also follow me on my journey to Live Life Lusciously. I hope and pray that my words of truth melt into your heart so that you too can...
Indulge your Soul, Live Your Bliss!
