What is a Cottage Food program?
It is a licensed and permitted operation through the Washington State Department of Agriculture which allows preparation and sale of products from a home kitchen and residence that has not been subject to a standard inspection criteria. Rather, there is a strict application process unique to the national cottage food industry. You can learn more by visiting Cottage Food | Washington State Department of Agriculture.
My WSDA permit # is 1038 and renewed annually.
What are your hours of operation?
Messages/e-mails are checked daily and I usually respond within 24 hours. Actual order processing (planning, prep, baking, clean-up) are contingent upon my work schedule, events (Pop-Ups, Fundraisers/Donations, Sweet Treat Saturdays) and other personal commitments.
What opportunities are there to try your baked goods?
Follow Facebook and Instagram for announcements on Pop-Ups, "Sweet Treat Saturday" sampler box opportunities and giveaways such as Rabbit-Rabbit, the Cookie Drawing, and other baking events. You can also click the "Pop-Ups & Things! " tab for a quick glance at what's going on with MRP!
I have a treat voucher or Pop-Up Bucks. How do I redeem them?
Gift certificates/vouchers will have terms and conditions listed, including an expiration date. When you are ready to redeem, e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org to determine my baking availability. Preparation/baking days and times depend on my work schedule, events (Pop-Ups, Fundraisers, Sweet Treat Saturdays) and other work-life balance goals. Pop-Up Bucks have no expiration date and can be applied towards any purchase during a Pop-Up or other special event. Be sure to bring it with you!
Do you bake gluten-free items? What if I have other allergies or sensitivities?
All baked goods are created in a licensed and permitted home kitchen where most equipment has contacted gluten and/or other allergens such as tree nuts, eggs, dairy and soy at some point in time. ***I am unable to guarantee that cross-contact will not occur or that items are free from traces of gluten and/or other allergens***
How do I place a custom order?

Baking is contingent upon my work schedule, events (Pop-Ups, Fundraisers/Donation fulfilment, Sweet Treat Saturdays) and other commitments. I am unable to support Thanksgiving, Christmas or New Year Holidays 2022.
If I do place a custom order, how do I pay and where do I pick up??
