Guys might belly up to a bar after basketball, but my gal pals and I hit the Bent Fork Bakery post-hoops.  Why else work out?

The bright pink polka-dot shop is about cakes and cookies and tea breads, for sure (the best chewy ginger molasses cookies ever), but antique junkies can also get their fix.  You really never know what you’ll walk out with!

When edible candles were just an idea, Bent Fork owner Liz generously, patiently answered all kinds of market research questions.  And she shared her inspiring start-up story, and I couldn’t wait until I Let Them Eat Candles were sitting on her shelves.

Thanks, Liz.  It's game time.  And we make a great team!

Bent Fork Bakery, 335 Waukegan Avenue, Highwood, IL.  847.926.4438
