Meet Our Publisher Welcome to Lone Star Local Guide! My name is Lindsey and I am so proud to not only call myself a Texan, but also a Houstonian. My family history is not only deep in the heart of Texas but deep in the heart of Houston since I’m a direct descendant of the Allen Brothers. I’m therefore very proud that my digital publication represents the area where I live and where my family is from. I am passionate about my community and the businesses that reside in it. Without a community, we have no place to call home and nothing to leave the next generation. I believe strongly in the power of the small business and what it represents. When you shop at a small business, you’re not only supporting your community, but you’re also supporting a family. I started Lone Star Local Guide to showcase these local businesses. I strive to find unique small businesses, each offering something different. You may not have even known some of these companies were local to you and my hope is that I’ll be able to give them exposure and support for their businesses. Along with promoting these unique businesses, the Guide will also include informational, educational, and just plain interesting articles on various issues and topics that I hope you will enjoy. Here’s a helpful tip: every ad is linked directly to the advertiser’s website so no more having to write it down- just click and go! Thanks again for stopping by and I look forward to seeing you again in the next issue! Please help spread the word by liking and following us on Facebook and Instagram, where we’ll regularly post upcoming local events, news, and, of course, awesome local businesses!

I weighed the cauliflower, turnips, and cheese only because it is easier than using measuring cups.

By: Raigan Mayo Food Blogger

We wanted to re-run this story because we felt it was only right to give Scratch By Sarah the pat on the back she deserves. Since we ran her story back in May, her small business has exploded! Nearly every month she is fully booked with special orders and close to booked for the follow-

Lone Star Local Guide Page 6

ing month. Needless to say, Scratch By Sarah is the #CakeDealer QUEEN! So what’s so great about her? Here is everything you need to know: Three years ago, Sarah was convinced that everyone knew how to bake delicious cakes and cupcakes. She grew up in a house where everyone was a fantastic cook and baker and she thought it was normal that everyone baked as well as her family. But the feedback Sarah received to her own baked goods was overwhelmingly positive. It wasn’t until people started asking her to personally make cakes for their events that she realized she could actually make a business out of doing what she loved—making cakes and cupcakes. “I love everything about my business! To be able to have creative freedom and even delivering my orders and see-

ing the huge smiles on my customers’ faces. Especially my younger customers, seeing a child’s face light up is the best feeling ever! When I was creating my business model, I decided that titling Scratch as a “bakery and cupcakery” best suited my overall offerings. While the cupcake is definitely my specialty, I also make all sorts of cakes, cookies, brownies, and desserts. Everything I make is from scratch. No shortcuts, no artificial flavorings, and all completely custom, made-to-order. I have no set menu. The creativity door is wide open for them, and for me. For that, I am the proudest.” Sarah uses only fresh, quality ingredients, and no artificial flavorings. When you order something with strawberries or a strawberry flavor she uses actual strawberries as the flavoring. You can be sure there’s no added chemical or fake flavoring coming from her kitchen. Sarah is no stranger to big events either. She may be a business of one, but she can handle any kind of event, wedding, or office party. May-


be you just need a dozen cupcakes for a girls’ night out? She’s got you covered in that department as well and will make your girls get-together a sweet one to remember. No matter the task, Sarah has the determination and the love of baking to get the job done. What does Sarah feel is essential to success? “For me, staying true to my morals and standards is most important for my success. Often as businesses grow, in any industry, volume goes up and quality goes down. For me, there’s nothing

more important than maintaining the quality my customers have come to expect. You can’t get the best results without using the best ingredients and putting the time and effort into each order that it deserves.” So, the next time you’re at the grocery store and you need a sweet treat for your event, remember to shop local and support a small business owner and her dream. Who doesn’t like the sweet smell of buttercream frosting, strawberry cakes, and chocolate sauce which are an everyday scent pouring from the kitchen at Scratch By Sarah? You can see more of Sarah’s baked goods and contact her at www.scratchbysarah.com. She is also on Facebook and Instagram, so head over and give her a like and a follow.u

Emergency Services District Seven Board’s decision to move up a fulltime firefighter hiring class made that possible to meet the 2020 staffing goal several months ahead of schedule.
