This International Women’s Day, we are introducing you to our founder, Jami!✨
Jami, AKA Mom, shares some of her upbringing, her love of baking, why she started Home Dough, and words of wisdom.
I grew up in a traditional family, number 4 of 5 children, with 2 brothers and 2 sisters. Family meals were a given as was pursuing an education. From my perspective as the youngest sister, girls were treated equally and we were all encouraged to have a reliable profession.
THE BAKING BUG
One of my favorite hobbies at an early age was creating food in the kitchen and making cookies quickly became the most enjoyable part of that hobby. I often compared recipes in the cookbooks at the library and book shops and I asked my mom's friends for their cookie recipes.
By the time I had my 5 children, I had baked hundreds of cookies. As my kids got older, I learned that life was much easier if I made big batches of dough ahead of time and froze it so that I could pop a batch in the oven anytime cookies were needed.
HOME DOUGH IS BORN
I pursued other professional roles in my adult life besides culinary but always felt connected to my baking passion. I started Home Dough to bring a great tasting frozen cookie dough to market that had the same clean ingredients I would want to serve my family and that offered easy access to anyone who wants a freshly baked cookies at a moments notice.
