🔍 Now for some personal information…

Hi, I’m Vicky Hadley, the head pastry chef and culinary genius behind Little Chef Within.

Well, I’d like to say that about myself, but in reality I’m just a girl that loves Baking! I love mixing ingredients and seeing and smelling what wonderful things come out of my oven!

I’m a very blessed homeschooling Mom of 6 boys, including a set of twins! I love Jesus, my husband, my kids, french fries, emojis, and anything sweet! I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease 6 years ago, so I’m very familiar with gluten free Cooking & Baking.

I still believe a bad day can be turned around with a cookie or a slice of cake and a good day should be celebrated with some kind of dessert 😊
