Although the name Sweet Laurel refers to Laurel's delicious and responsibly decadent baked goods that she makes for her namesake bakery - Laurel is literally one of the sweetest people we've met in Los Angles. The recipe she carries for genuine kindness, thoughtfulness, and baking talent is undoubtably what has contributed to her success.
In her bakery she makes all the most beautiful grain free, gluten free, paleo treats your heart desires - beautifully decorated of course. She is so meticulous with her process that she even infuses her own vanilla extract (to avoid grain alcohol). You can order her goodies in the Los Angles area and find many of her dry goods and some prepared items in shops around town- including Erewhon Supermarket.
And if you don't live locally, her blog is one of my favorite places to find recipes.
Laurel is a new mom to her precious baby boy Nico, and we feel so lucky to live locally and be a same part of the new mom community.
Thank you Laurel for all of your delicious contributions! You inspire us!
