We had the good fortune of connecting with Courtney Rearick and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Courtney, we’d love to hear more about how you thought about starting your own business?
I wanted to have a business that I could run at home while raising my children.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I was raised in a wedding cake bakery, so decorating was second nature to me- having done it since I was a small child. However working with royal frosting instead of buttercream was a challenge at first. It took me a good while for the art of my cookies to be where I wanted it to be. One thing I always hear from my customers is that my cookies are not only pretty but they taste just as good. I think this sets my cookies apart! As a third generation baker, I take a lot of pride in my cookies tasting as good as they look!

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
If my best friend was visiting my hometown of Tomball, I would take her to eat at some of the amazing local eateries such as- Tejas Chocolates, The Whistlestop or Cisco’s Salsa Company. We would also do some shopping in the cute shops we have downtown- my personal favorite is Commerce Street Clothiers. The Owner Jaime really gives you a personal Shopping experience and makes you laugh till your cheeks hurt! Finally we could take our kids to play at the Tomball splash pad !

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I want to dedicate my shoutout to my 3 little girls- they are my reason for having this business!
