BIO- Sarah A. Rogers is a native of Palestine, Texas and an all around character who loves East Texas and the people who live there. She is more fun in the kitchen than Paula Dean and can pinch a penny until it screams!
Rogers struggled for years as a single mom who worked in fast food establishments to make ends meet while attending college until she finally landed a gig at the world-famous Eilenberger Bakery. Rogers worked for the 113-year-old bakery for almost 16 years at nearly every level in the bakery, and worked her way up over the years into the General Manager position.
Rogers jokes that she has always had a champagne taste on a beer budget, but it is exactly that which led her to discover her creative abilities in and outside the home.
“I always felt embarrassed and like I was missing out when I had to come up with polite excuses for friends and family that wanted to dine out, but I couldn’t afford it,” Rogers said.
Rogers began by developing creative ideas for children’s birthday presents and parties which soon led to a waterfall of creative juices. She quickly realized food was not just a necessity, but a way to share life with friends and family.
“I began taking items around the house, and turning them into center pieces and place settings- before a major net work became trendy.”
Rogers creativity and hospitality began to change her life as there was nothing more she enjoyed than making loved ones feel welcome and special.
Rogers is currently attending American Institute of Baking (AIB) and continues to expand ways to express her Southern hospitality.
