When Entreprenista Kristen Tomlan moved to New York City following design school, her passion for baking was as present as ever. Despite her tiny Manhattan kitchen, baking became a therapy of sorts. It was an escape from her busy schedule as a designer at a brand consultant firm and an outlet from the constant drum of the busy city.
Kristen loves the process of trying new flavors and recipes — the journey of taking raw ingredients and transforming them into a delicious creation that can be shared. She finds joy being in the kitchen and baking treats to share with the people in her life. From her kitchen to yours, enjoy the joy of sharing DŌ with your loved ones this year!
