A San Francisco native, Yvonne began at home sharing her special recipe of pralines,
a confection pecan candy originating from the Old South. Perfecting a recipe given by
a close family friend, Yvonne began sharing her creations with family, friends and co-workers. Everyone who sampled her pralines would rant and rave of the delicious authentic flavor and encouraged Yvonne to share her tasty treats with others.
Using her enterprising talents, Yvonne began making her pralines and expanded her offerings
to include other specialty desserts such as ol’ school butter cookies, sweet potato pies, peach cobblers, and cakes for small parties and social gatherings at the request of family, friends and local community organizations. The small order requests quickly grew into large orders of 100-200 guests at local civic and social events.
Yvonne opened her store in the Bayview Hunters Point community in 2006…
and the rest is history.
