Yummy Baked Goods,
“Take-and-Bakes” & More…
Once upon a time, many of us had mothers and grandmothers who baked from scratch with old family recipes…and who not only greeted us after school with hugs and kisses, but fresh-baked cakes, brownies, or cookies that were warm, gooey and oh-so-yummy. And, then there were those unforgettable Sunday family dinners, complete with homemade bread or biscuits and desserts that had us smacking lips and licking our fingers!
But…times have changed.
Most moms work, and baking from scratch is just one of those domestic activities that doesn’t fit into today’s hectic schedule. Yet, we all recognize that there is no substitute for baking just like mom’s!
So, Bev O’Hara has come to the rescue with Just Like Mom’s, a self-serve bakery cottage (and great rest-stop), in Union Bay. It’s perched up on the hill and easily accessed by turning onto Muschamp Road off 19A—approximately 4km north of the Denman Ferry terminal at Buckley Bay (near the highway rest stop).
