My sister recently had hand surgery that sidelined her for a few weeks. Everything went well, but the recovery process after surgery always takes time. I visited her within the first week of her surgery and took along a plate of her favorite cookies.

The sugar was hardly a cure, but knowing she was thought about certainly brightened her day. The sweet treats were just a bonus. It was the visit that gave her a boost. I’m sure you’ve heard the saying “laughter is the best medicine”, and laughing, along with good conversation and friendship, can help anyone weather the valleys of life. 

This is true for folks as they recover from surgery, rest after an illness, heal after the birth of a baby, or grieve the loss of a loved one: knowing someone is thinking of them helps the process. 

Ashley’s Pastries can also help. Our treats are a great way to show someone you care. 

Visiting a friend that recently had surgery? Pick up some of our cookies to take with you. 

Dropping off a meal to a family that has been dealing with illness? Our dinner rolls are the perfect complement to many dishes. We bake them fresh daily, and with a quick phone call, we can have your order packaged and ready for pickup when it’s convenient for you. 

Do you know someone struggling through the fog of grief? There’s not a lot you can do to take away the pain of a significant loss, but helping with daily tasks can make a difference during a difficult time. Pick up one of Ashley’s coffee cakes so a morning meal is ready to go. 

If you’re celebrating the birth of a new baby, take along cupcakes or an assortment of muffins to share with the new mom. We can make custom treats to match a nursery theme, or include a new baby’s name or birth stats. We’re certain the new mom will delight in these details and will appreciate the gesture. Perhaps when you’re dropping off the treats you can offer to hold the new bundle so mom can take a nap or enjoy a cup of hot coffee. 

You hear us often say how much we enjoy helping you celebrate life deliciously. Sometimes that celebration can take different shapes. Sometimes it means helping provide treats for a recovery, or to be there on the other side when friends get through a dark time. 

We’re thankful to be a part of it, to help you with all the ups and downs along the way.
