“Reinventing Rita” by
Rediscovering My Love
of Baking Baklava
During my process of healing, I came across an amazing writer, world traveler, and unconventional change agent who posed the question: What can you offer the world that no one else can?
As I contemplated this question, I thought of my passions, which include cooking, traveling, foreign cultures, entrepreneurship, and, of course, my first love…baking. I remembered summer trips to New York as a kid to visit family and how I came to love other cultures and languages. While working at a Greek-owned restaurant in high school and college, my love for baking baklava blossomed. As these memories came flooding back, I realized…instead of focusing on the loss of my marriage, I needed to reinvent myself by following my decades-long passion of bringing joy and delight to people with the sweet taste of baklava because what I can offer is the best baklava the world will ever enjoy; and that’s exactly what we do here at Sheer Ambrosia Bakery.
Today, I am a proud parent, a sharp businesswoman, a speaker, an author, and a happy person.
Enjoy our baklava, and keep coming back to see what other eclectic edibles we will be serving up next!
Peace, Love, & Baklava!
