Suzanne took a little time off from helping business make a lasting impression to call with Live Blissed Out about her hobby, baking.

Baking has been a passion since she was 8 and started making cookies for 4-H competitions.  It led to a 10-year baking and breads career in 4-H.  Her final award there was a fully paid trip to Chicago paid for by Fleischmann’s Yeast Company.

Here are the recipies from the podcast.
