Hi, I’m Lolly and I’m the author of Lolly’s Sweet & Savory Treats. My real name is actually Laurel, but my family members and childhood friends have been calling me Lolly for as long as I can remember. I am a proud wife to Robert,  ecstatic mother to Smith, and walking and fetch buddy to our chocolate lab Athena.  I’m also a physical therapist and I find a lot of satisfaction in helping people move better.

I started Lolly’s Sweet & Savory Treats in 2011 as a way to foster my hobbies of baking, cooking, and writing. Eating is such a central part of our lives and I wanted to challenge myself to become more dedicated to making food from scratch and limiting the amount of processed and pre-packaged food our family consumes. It’s not always easy, but it’s always satisfying creating nutritious and delicious food with one’s own hands.

We recently relocated  our family from the suburbs of Columbus to the heart of Amish Country in Walnut Creek, Ohio.  Living in a rural area where crops and livestock are abundant encourages us to strive towards self-sufficiency and I hope to document my attempts at homestead living. Maybe someday my brown thumb will turn green or I will be able to identify a bird other than a cardinal. Let’s not hold our breath…
