My name is Elizabeth Namusoke Kizito. I was born under a banana tree in Africa. My father taught me the business at his bakery when I was just a little girl. This family tradition came with me to America when I was 17. All the cookies and brownies I sell are prepared by my hand at my little bakery in Louisville, Kentucky. I encourage you to try each of the scrumptious treats our family whips up every day. We mix my father’s legacy into every single batch. – Elizabeth Kizito
