K is for Cookies started with a sweet tooth and a passion for baking, and has S-L-O-W-L-Y (LOL) blossomed into a business. K... is for Kelly. (Hi, that's me.) I have a Bachelor's Degree in Marketing from the University of Connecticut. Previously a Marketing Account Executive, in 2007 I happily traded in my 9-to-5 gig for a life in the restaurant business. Having worked in restaurants on-and-off since I was a teenager, I finally realized that's where I was happiest. (After all, isn't that what it's all about?!) The best part: being around food and other people who love food. In 2012, I serendipitously ended up at LeFarm restaurant in Westport, CT. Having enjoyed baking since I was a kid - and attempting to satisfy my insatiable sweet tooth - I would bake sweet treats at home and bring them in for everyone to nibble on. One day, Chef said "I like your cookies. I'd like to put them on the menu." And the rest, as they say, is cookie history. Those circular little goodies made their first public appearance on the LeFarm dessert menu as the 'Plate of Cookies.' When customers embraced the idea as well, the cookie creative juices started flowing and K is for Cookies was born! When LeFarm closed :( I took a cookie sabbatical for a few years. I still baked desserts - A LOT OF DESSERTS - for myself and now for the dessert menu at Jesup Hall restaurant in Westport, CT. By the end of 2018, I finally came to my baking senses... I picked up my rolling pin, dusted off my cookie recipes (okay, there really was no dust) and got back at it!
