Emma’s Grand Divine Creations
How It All Started & Why I Do It…
Growing up in a small town, I was quite a bashful child, but very outspoken! Being raised by a single parent of 2 children, and also being a Latchkey Kid, and having to sometimes prepare after school snacks (that were not ordinary) for me and my big brother, became the norm. Often times I would watch cooking shows, like Julia Childs, and Justin Wilson, Emeril Lagasse, and a few other pioneers, learning a few techniques from them! Most of my baking skills came from my mother, Evelyn Joyce Pierce Chivers, and also my paternal grandmother Emma Lee Washington. I always loved experimenting with different dishes at home, especially during the summer months, when mom was away at work, and we were out of school.
Little did she know, I was in her kitchen mixing up eggs, butter, flour, and sugar, making up all sorts of creative things, that no one would eat! Not even my big brother, who was 2 years older than I! There were many holidays that I would sit up in a chair, and watch my mother prepare dinner for her entire family to come by and enjoy. She always made sure that she prepared the best food, and lots of it, so that everyone would get full and not have to worry about being hungry for the rest of the day!
Whenever I wasn’t watching my mom, I would watch my paternal grandmother, the Late Matriarch of the Washington family of Nash, Texas. My grandmother sowed many values unto me, and it was more than just cooking! She taught me perseverance and how to weather many storms, growing up! She taught me how to stay focused and how to always keep God First, and be all that I can be! During the nearly 40 years that I was blessed to have my grandmother in my life, little did I know , she was molding me. She spoke words of wisdom into my life, and taught me the purpose of living and how to always remain humble, even during difficult times.
After working my last job at FedEx, for nearly 15 years, I decided, with the help of my Life Coach, that it was time for me to tale a leap and retire early from my job.
Little did I know, up until I put in notice of a few weeks, that January 11, 2019 would be my last day working for a wonderful company, before I made the decision to become my own boss!
I could go on and on….but I will get to the point. I am “Emma’s Grand.”
I have been baking for decades, with 7 plus being for the public.
I started baking Tea Cakes(which was an updated version of one of the treats that my late grandmother was well known for) for my church, and taking them for everyone to eat, and then I said that if I could do those, them I needed to add other goodness. Throughout the years of brainstorming, trial & error, I am now happy to say that I have baked over 100 different cookie, Tea Cakes, Brownies and other items, including a Divine Chicken & Sausage stuffed Portabella Mushroom (including the vegetarian version!)
I use only the finest ingredients to prepare my treats, and I take time to craft each and every cookie. I bake them, ship or deliver on the same day; therefore there are currently no preservatives added.
My main reason for using this web page, is so that I can finally do my best to accommodate some of the hundreds of people who have been patiently waiting for a very long time, to get a sample of my divine creations. I pray before I bake, knowing that this, as well as love, are the primary reason why my products taste so good. It is my ultimate goal to become a factory owner, and to create even more treats, enabling me to reach a global status!
I love what I do, and this is why I have made the decision to make my treats available to the world. I am dedicated, inspired by the best, and very passionate about my work! I am moving forward into my destiny, and this is only the beginning, of something far more greater than I can ever imagine!
