Hello there, foodie friends! Long time no blog post!
Fall officially began last weekend, now here we are on the last day of September. I don’t know about you, but I blinked and summer was over! I had a busy and productive summer in the kitchen, getting out to the farmers markets and meeting new friends, baking for many of your special occasions and coming up with exciting new ideas for the future.
Today I thought I’d take a few minutes around the kitchen table to reflect on a few things as well as look ahead with what’s on the horizon in the kitchen.
This past week I celebrated the one year anniversary of “From Gina’s Kitchen”, and my journey as small food business entrepreneur. What a year it has been! From taking the “Foundations” course at Frontier Kitchen, filling special orders, recipe testing, joining business networking groups, managing business finances and working each week at the farmers markets, it’s been exciting times for me. Exciting is just one way to describe it though. Scary, yet fulfilling. Challenging, but rewarding. Fun, but at times stressful. I wouldn’t trade a minute of it, though.
You may have noticed that some things have changed in the kitchen over time (locations of farmers markets, pricing structures, cake contracts) and some stayed the same (quality of my products, dedication and attention to detail). In the future you are going to see more of the same, with a little something new here and there… new logo, new website, pop-ups and demos, and more blog posts! Behind those changes will still be the homemade goodness you have come to know and love about the kitchen, though.
In the future you’ll see more kids cupcake decorating demos, like the one I offered yesterday. To see pictures from the event, visit my Facebook page
October begins tomorrow and I’m eager to start the new month and all it has to offer. Some highlights for you are :
- Exit 40 Farmers Market (last day is Oct. 25th)
- Mark your calendar for October 27- the Kitchen will be on the road in Old Town Manassas at the “Holiday Crafts, Desserts and Sweets” event.
- Halloween! Order your treats ASAP!
I look forward to spending more time with you all in the kitchen. If you aren’t already signed up for my newsletter, take a minute to sign up here https://www.fromginaskitchen.com/. As a regular kitchen visitor you’ll be the first to know about events, discounts and kitchen happenings.

Blessings for a great start to the week and new month ahead!
