Teaching the love of baking to my grandson Theo.
The kids are grown and I still have my love of baking/cooking. What do you do with all those cookies and brownies you make when it's just me. Well I bring treats to work and share with my co-workers. My friends at work would say " Yay, T brought treats" and that's how I came up with my business name.
For Christmas one year, a friend gave me a jar of jalapeno pepper jam...and it was delicious but not quite hot enough for me. Around this time the ghost pepper was coming on to the scene and was being hailed as one of the hottest peppers. I began experimenting with different recipes for a hot pepper jam and after a lot of trial and error I came up with a recipe that was the right taste for me a little sweet with a hint of heat.
One day I brought my ghost pepper jam to work with cream cheese and crackers to share with my co-workers. One gal said to me, "mmmm, can I buy this"? I said, " I don't sell it" she said "put me on your list" , and that was when the light bulb went off, thank you Anna!
That was back in 2012, a lot of good things have happened since then. We continue to add new products to our Treats by T-the pepper people line.
Later in 2015, I took a step forward in my business and added a website. Gopepperpeople.com aka Treatsbyt.com
Ps, now my customers call us , " those pepper people".
