Sweet Maddie's was closed for much of 2016. Its been a year of reflection and decisions. The baking business in a Massachusetts Residential Kitchen can be an unpredictable 24/7 operation; so I decided to really enjoy the year as an empty-nester, revisit a few haunts, hang with some friends, and ponder the future. That being said, here are just a few memorable moments from my year including places, food, sights, & people from Maryland to Maine. I traveled around in the Baked Mobile with my old Cannodale in the cargo hold and my new Nikon in the passenger seat trying to capture the essence of this East Coast baker's favorites.
