The Sugar Bar

I have really exciting news that Iíve been dying to share with you for a while but I didnít want to jinx it.
Besides music, one of my dreams has always been to open a bakery. When I was a little girl I would sneak into the kitchen and sift out a few cups of flour and mix it with water just to play with the dough. Baking, like music, is a creative release for me and can also be very therapeutic. You can always tell when I am stressed out because suddenly my house gets filled with cookies, cupcakes, and pie. It takes my mind off of whatever is wrong in the world. If you follow the recipe, you canít fail (well, sometimes you can, if you have a finicky oven like me) and the smile on peopleís faces when you hand them a slice of fresh warm fruit pie with vanilla ice cream or let a child help roll out cookie dough is priceless.
This dream is finally coming true and at the moment I am working not only on the new record but also opening The Sugar Bar with my new found friend and marvelous pastry chef Rebekka Seale. It will be an old-fashioned bakeshop and bar where you can go grab a drink after dinner and a slice of Bourbon Chocolate Cake or Summer Berry Pie. We will also be using as many local, organic and natural ingredients as possible. Also exciting is the fact that Rebekka will be blogging throughout the entire process at http://www.blog.thesugarbar.com so you will all be able to watch us get this place up and running. I canít wait for you to take a part in this process with us but more importantly I can wait for you to all stop by and grab a slice of the sweet life next time youíre in Nashville.

I have an odd oven too, some days i will turn it on and smoke will pour from it for no reason and ruin my pastry, maybe there is a serious problem but i suppose i have fire safety training if it decided to set itself alight.
If i ever visit america, and of course nashville i will certainly have to find it and pop in.
But i wish you the best of luck in this business venture!
