When Sarah Gonzalez moved from California to Tennessee, she found a community in desperate need of baked goods.  So she started feeding people, through farmers markets, a retail bakery and now with a cookbook and baking classes.

In this episode, Mark and Sarah talk about how Spring Hill Bakery burst on the scene in her new town, how baking builds strong bonds within families and communities, and how Sarah is finding balance and resilience to keep her going for the long term.
