Celebrate Tradition with the DLM Bakery

Like many of you, ever since I can remember my family has celebrated Thanksgiving Day at my grandmother’s house. Walking into my grandmother’s house on Thanksgiving and smelling all that wonderful food always brings back memories of my childhood. My mother, as well as my aunts, would rise early and begin cooking their designated dishes in order to contribute to the feast. There were, and still are, certain dishes that I can count on always being there at Thanksgiving. My Aunt Jeannie’s creamy corn pudding; my mother’s special homemade deviled eggs; and her baked green beans, which had simmered for hours with smoked bacon. Then there is my grandmother, who begins preparation weeks in advance, planning and working hard every year to make the mashed potatoes, turkey, and gravy to perfection; and of course, the pumpkin pie.

When I first began working at DLM, I was very bold to bring one of our pumpkin pies to our gathering (where no store-bought pie had ever crossed the threshold). Everyone complimented me on the smooth, melt-in-your-mouth pie, none of them (including my most discerning grandmother) believing that it was not made in my home. Our pies are made just like you would make them in your kitchen, with fresh eggs, real cream, and baked in an all-butter crust.

The DLM Bakery is proud to be a part of your family tradition by providing the highest quality, most delicious baked goods: from fresh Grandma Tobias Pumpkin, Pecan, and Fruit Pies (enjoyed by everyone, even Grandma!), to our moist, popular Pumpkin Cheese Rolls, and our edible Bread Basket centerpiece, complete with two dozen rolls. Let us join you in creating new traditions for your family this Thanksgiving!
