Among Friends, LLC, is the creation of two friends, Suzie Miller and Lizann Anderson. Like many such ventures, it began over a cup of coffee (and involved a cookie, of course). This was a mouthwatering cookie, with memorable taste and texture, handcrafted by Suzie. That’s when I got out my wooden spoon. (I’m Lizann). I vowed to make Suzie’s cookies dense with nutrition without sacrificing great taste.
We know firsthand about the perils of healthy cookies that taste like the cardboard they’re packaged in. You see, I was blessed with three boys and the middle one is a bloodhound who sniffs everything before he eats it. I knew if I made a cookie that passed the tyranny of Shane’s taste buds, I would have accomplished something. The imp will eat as many Suzie Q. cookies as I can keep in the jar (Needless to say, we’re mum with our kids on the benefits of whole grains).
Among Friends mixes reflect our desire to share our baked goods with other discriminating palates. Our goal is simple: we want to help people fill their kitchens with fresh-from-the-oven baked goods made from the best ingredients. Our mixes make baking easy for people on those days when treats from scratch are impractical or well nigh impossible. We all have those days. Our name tells it all. Each of our baking mixes is handcrafted for friends and named for someone we love, a friend or family member.
