Lesa started baking with her mom, threes sisters and six brothers in a small country kitchen. "We all loved to bake. We would have baking wars to see who could make the best 'cow paddies. Cow paddies consisted of cocoa, butter, sugar, peanut butter and what ever else you could find in the kitchen to make yours the best. We laughed a lot and had so much fun. That is how the name Sweet Thoughts evolved. I have so many great memories about family and baking."
After getting married Lesa worked in the family construction business for over 25 years. She decided to follow her dreams and enrolled in the pasty/baking and chocolatier program at Schoolcraft College in Livonia Michigan. Once in the Chocolatier program, her passion was ignited. Chocolate became a way for her to express her artistic ability. While mastering the creation of beautiful hand painted chocolates, she paired them with eclectic flavors of fresh fruits, purees, spices, teas and other wonderful ingredients. The final creation, amazing pieces of edible art.
