Why I became a baker..

I just thought a good post would be an introduction..

My name is Chris Lautischer. And I'm a 23 year old Canadian. I have 2 boys and a fish. I got hooked into the baking world when I started selling Watkins products. After 1 taste of the Vanilla I was hooked and soon everything in my house became Watkins.

Personally, my favorite thing to bake is bread. Nothing beats getting home to a nice loaf of homeade bread.. Especially when the smell is lingering in the air.

Next favorite thing... Strawberry Rhubarb pie... mmmmmmmmmm

-cleans up the drool-

I hope to meet everyone out there soon!!!
