Lola Cookies & Treats

Lola Cookies & Treats Hi, I'm Lola. I ran my eponymous baking biz in Leesburg, VA for 12 yrs. All scratch, every day, with the music playing. A dozen kinds of crazy, but all fun.

It was so fun while it lasted! We took a small kitchen and a couple rooms upstairs in an old Victorian building in historic downtown Leesburg, VA and turned them into the bakery of my dreams. We baked every single thing from scratch in our open kitchen using no preservatives and no artificial flavors--just like you would at home, because that is how it tastes best. Our baked goods were featured on

Life skills!

"It’s been said that good cooking is an art form. The truth is, it’s much more than that. It’s a way to teach kids vital 21st century skills, such as critical thinking, creativity and collaboration."

I'm broken-hearted by the news about Anthony Bourdain today.
I do feel that there is wisdom in his own words here. When you are unsure or stymied in life, I agree that it is better to do something--almost anything--rather than do nothing. A new challenge, a new risk, a new experience is better than risking stagnation or hopelessness.

CNN mourns the loss of Anthony Bourdain. If you or someone you know needs help, please call the National Su***de Prevention hotline at 1-800-273-8255.

‘Sweeney Todd’ pie maker baked for Obama and Bush

I am a huge fan of Bill Yosses. Have you seen what the former White House pastry chef is up to now? This guy is so cool. He is proof that if you work hard and get along well with others, you can write your own ticket in life.

When you’ve baked for two American presidents, as Bill Yosses has, you may not want to be associated with Mrs. Lovett, the diabolical pie maker of “Sweeney Todd.” She has a unique way of sourcing m…
