In searching for the perfect REAL cookie, Stuffed AF Cookies was born. I wanted a big, soft cookie stuffed with more yummy goodness. I wanted it to taste like something sinful after it’s warmed up, like it’s right out of the oven. That’s what I’ve created, for you.
ALL the fat.
ALL the carbs.
ALL the gluten.
ALL the calories.
ALL the goodness.
Baking is fun and my way to express my creative side, for sure. At this point in my life Stuffed AF Cookies is more than that though. I’ve always wanted to be an entrepreneur, and being at the point in my life where I can go for it is exciting.
When coming up with the theme for Stuffed AF Cookies, I looked back at my life for inspiration. I’ve always been surrounded by very strong, brave, and incredible women. My mom is the epitome of those traits. She raised me and my siblings as a single parent for the majority of their life and all of mine, I’m the baby. I remember baking with her; licking the bowl after mixing the cookies was the best!
My two older sisters are also brave and strong beyond measure. Both in law enforcement and raising their children to be incredible humans. All the while being positive and happy role models to anyone and everyone they came into contact with.
Fast forward to my career as a law enforcement officer that lasted 25 years. I was surrounded by the best of the best when it came to strong, brave, confident women. I remember when I first started my career, looking up to some of these amazing women wishing to someday be like them. I like to think I made it to that point eventually. I would never pass up a chance to mentor another female coming into law enforcement. Never missed a chance to cheer another woman on, to always have her back.
Over the years I’ve surrounded myself with these type of women, not just my coworkers but my friends outside of work. I believe all women should have a tribe of “sisters” always there, no judgement…just support. How did I get so lucky?
I hope when you are enjoying one of my cookies, you think of the amazing women who have impacted your life. I hope reading this reminds you of someone special, and you reach out and tell her how special she is to you.
Eating cookies and catching up with your friends… nothing better. Wait, maybe a glass of wine with the cookie, which might just push the moment over the top.
What better way to pay tribute to the wonderful women in my life and those who I’ve crossed paths with who have inspired me, motivated me, and helped me than to dedicate my business to them?
The amazing, special, strong, brave, smart, funny, thoughtful, kind, incredible, straight up badass ladies are why the cookies are referred to as ladies and all have a story. Each lady or girl, depending on the cookie, reminds me of someone who has impacted my life in a positive, memorable way.
Behind every great woman are the great women who support her. I have so many.
Thank you “sisters” I appreciate you,
