 What a regular day looks like at Samowar Cafe and Bakery?

As the owner of a home-based bakery, my day starts early. I slip into the kitchen while my family still sleeps and prepare for the day ahead. There's a certain comfort that comes with working in your own kitchen, surrounded by the familiar smells and sounds of home.

I fire up the oven and begin mixing ingredients for my signature cookies, carefully measuring out each portion to ensure that every batch is consistent and delicious. As the cookies bake, I start on my next creation - a tray of homemade meat pies.

Though my kitchen is small, it's cozy and inviting. I love the feeling of being able to create delicious treats for my customers from the comfort of my own home. It feels more personal, and more intimate than working in a commercial kitchen.

As the day goes on, I take breaks between baking to package up orders and respond to emails from customers. Some of them have been coming to me for a long time, and it's always gratifying to see how much they love my baked goods.

In the afternoon, I take a break to taste-test my latest creation - a batch of corn cake. They're just as I'd hoped, with a light, fluffy texture and the perfect balance of sweet and tart.

As the day comes to a close, I take a moment to reflect on the work I've done. Though working from home can be challenging at times - especially when it comes to managing inventory and coordinating deliveries - it's ultimately incredibly rewarding. I feel grateful to share my love of baking with others and to be a part of their special occasions and everyday moments alike.
