"Owning our Story can be hard, but not nearly as difficult as spending our lives running from it" - Brene Brown
In 2006, I had the unpleasant experience of being diagnosed with thyroid cancer. Treatments and tests required going on a special diet. The diet is so common that there is even a cookbook that exists for patients. In the cookbook, I came across a basic peanut brittle recipe. I decided to tweak the recipe and give it a go. I brought the brittle into work and, to my surprise, my co-workers loved it! Like, loved it, loved it. So much so that they would buy the ingredients and leave them on my office chair to convince me to make it again. They told me I should sell it; I laughed!
Thank goodness, I was treated for the cancer and have been cancer free for 10+ years. Fast forward years later, I'm bobbing along in life in an unhealthy relationship and have an unfulfilling job. I knew I needed to make a change and divert my focus. Re-enter brittle. I thought, let me try some different variations of that oh so popular recipe. I gave it a shot and signed up for the local High School craft show. Low and behold, the brittle sold out!
And that was the beginning of Bucks County Brittle and More LLC.
I am so very grateful for every customer and mentor who have made this journey possible. I am blessed with friends and family who continue to support my Small Business daily. And, last but never least, I thank YOU for your support of this crazy idea I had!
