Haley’s Corner Bakery – Everything is Gluten Free!

February 11th, 2010 at Thu, 11th, 2010 at 11:58 am by Lisa - Gluten Free Foodie
I finally had the chance to go check out Haley's Corner Bakery in Kent, WA. I have been wanting to go see them since I met the owners "The Duran Family" at the GIG conference last year. I must say that it was a delight to walk in the front door ... as the aromas of so many amazing GLUTEN FREE TREATS were wafting by me ... my head felt like it was spinning!

I could smell cookies ... bread ... chocolate .... and something savory - PIZZA!!




When I met with Janet Duran and asked her about the variety of treats that they offer she told me ... they are Foodies so they had to do a bit of everything! So when she explained the story as to how Haley's Corner Bakery was started by her family ... I about melted.

Haley's family had been friends with the Durans for years. When Haley was diagnosed with Celiac disease when she was 2 years old, in 2003, they couldn't imagine how this sweet little girl would celebrate birthdays or holidays without cake, pie or cookies.

So they got to work on learning about baking Gluten Free and decided to open they bakery on a whim for Haley! (How sweet is that?!)
Janet told me that she didn't have any formal training other than making cakes and cookies for her children's sporting events and parties, which she did all the time. Now they are happy to offer a variety of Gluten Free treats for everyone.

Let's just say when I was there, I treated myself to a bite of just about everything!
AWESOME! is the only word that I can use to describe everything I tried. I had such a great time when I was there talking to some of the customers, one of which turned out to be one of my followers of this blog and on Facebook ... small world!
Gina and Janet at the bakery were very busy but were so wonderful to help me and chat with me about everything they had to offer. The list is too long so look them up on their website or just go by and see them. The do have fun seasonal items and a menu that can change daily so if there is something you really want, I suggest calling ahead and placing an order.

If you are looking for Valentine's Day treats ... you better get there early!

Learning to live Gluten Free is a challenge. Gathering with like minded people while exchanging ideas, life experiences and gluten free food is more interesting! So I created, Gluten Free Foodies, to support people with Celiac Disease, Gluten Intolerant and other Food Sensitive people by gathering at events and celebrating the foods that we can eat! Do you have a Gluten Free question you want the answer to? Feel free to send me an email at glutenfreefoodies@gmail.com Original blog - GlutenFreeFoodies.co After all, didn't Erma Bombeck once say ... "I am not a glutton, I am an explorer of food."
