Closing the bakery allowed me to do this with my daughter this year 🎄🥰 We went a little overboard to hopefully share a little L❤️VE, and not for $$. My home kitchen, however, may never be the same 🥴😜 Merry Christmas, y’all!! We love you❣️
Last cookie of the day was a special one 😊
I’ve been holding it together so so... until just now. One of our bakers said goodbye and left for the last time ...and the tears started flowing as I scooped this banana pudding 😭😭. Anyway...we will have banana pudding today 💜
We are open 11-4 today 💜😢
Our cute purple xmas 💜🎄💜
McKinley’s mementos or party supplies? We will have a handful today and much more tomorrow 💜
Purple & White Christmas cookies today 💜🤍💜
We had a request for Lemon Parm Chicken one last time and we are making it! 👏
I don’t even know what to say about the phones and wait times during lunch. Yesterday we had to stop answering phones altogether for a bit to get caught up with online and in store demand. We are doing our best. I apologize to any folks I may have been short with, it was really rough.
Today is going to be a GREAT day!
Thank you all 💜
The variety and volume of baked goods our team can produce out of our ridiculously small bakery kitchen still blows my mind. 🤯🤩 💜
A little taste of Christmas today....not the same without the music though! 🎄
Wow, Jennifer Kieta...you nailed it. And made me cry in the process 😭
There’s a worship song called “Oceans/Where Feet May Fail” performed by Hillsong United running through my mind. There’s a line that says, “Spirit lead me where my trust is without borders…Take me deeper than my feet could ever wander, that my faith would be made ...
Real butter goodness on Granny Smith apples before we get these beauties in the oven 😋🍏😋
A little 🌞 on a ☔️ day 😃 💜
Just a little bit of Thanksgiving vibe here today 🦃🥧🍏🍁
We have been struggling with bakery getting out late but everything is ready (except thumbprints! We will have lots of thumbprints today but give us time to frost them please !!) 😍👏🎂🧁
Adorable!! 🤩 Send me your pics! 📸 💜
The “kids” wanted to do Halloween theme one more day because the cookies are more fun...😏 🎃🧡🖤
Thanksgiving tomorrow, and yes, we will have a couple days of pumpkin cheesecakes!! 👏 💜
Remember these? We have them! 🧡🖤🎃
Slowly getting it filled! 🎃🧡🖤👻
Kicking off the week with a little Halloween 🎃👻💀🧡🖤 💜
One of our team members (thank you, Nohemi!) came up with the idea to run through the bakery holidays we will miss this year....all next week! The tentative plan is Halloween Monday 🎃, Thanksgiving Tues/Wed 🦃, and Christmas Thurs/Fri 🎄(cookies and certain bakery items only, no pre-orders or holiday meal items).
A huge THANK YOU to the friends, family, and former bakers/decorators who have stepped up to help next week.
Let’s do this! 👏
Chicken pot pie day 🥰😋 💜
Happy Saturday! Hoping to have most of the bakery selections out by lunch. See you today. 😷 💜

We will keep bakery offline today due to rapid availability changes
Yesterday was a bit rough and it felt like wheels off. I’m sure it looked like it too. 😫
This was our bakery case yesterday before we closed 😳
Working on restocking! 😃 Looks like my daughter and I will be baking over the weekend to help the team get ready for next week 🍪🥧🎂
Thank you in advance for bringing your patience today
Also thank you so much for your kind and supportive comments. Once things calm down I look forward to reading them all
Today’s specials! 💜
This post is a bittersweet message to write. I had hoped to prolong writing this as I continue to process the decision myself, but the cat is out of the bag now. Getting straight to the point… for several reasons we have decided not to renew our lease at the University Park Village shopping center. One of those reasons is obvious – operating a small restaurant with a large dining room in a high rent retail area does not seem to be the best business strategy for us in the current environment.
For years we have dreamed of one day finding a “forever home” for McKinley’s, and we love to imagine the possibilities that our own properly planned space would allow. But for now, we are not in a rush. I hope to enjoy this holiday season and focus on my family for the very first time. Our son is entering high school this fall and he will be gone soon! I feel I am missing it.
As far as our McKinley’s team, they are the absolute best! It takes an entire village for this place to go. I want each one of them to land in a good place. And as they begin their next chapters, our staffing situation grows thinner. My hope is to hold on with our current folks until Labor Day weekend. Closing earlier in the month of September will also give us some time to clear out our space.
All that being said….our kitchen team is now juggling the online orders in addition to the call-ins and walk-ins. They are operating in the same small kitchen space but with a thinner team. While we greatly appreciate the support (💜!), doing a rush on McKinley’s will not be fun (or safe!) for you or for us. If McKinley’s has not been a part of your summer pandemic routine then maybe now is not the time to start popping in. Or if you do, please enter with an abundance of patience and remember to social distance. We don’t want to be crying for the wrong reasons in our last days at UPV together. 😥
So this news is a bit sad because it is hard to close a really good chapter, and I have certainly cried a few tears. But it is also exciting.....who knows what God will do next? We are now free to find out. And whatever it is, it is going to be awesome. Stay tuned!!
I may have had a couple of these delicious 😬🤷🏼♀️ Self control is out the window these days! 💜
