BA K I N G A DREAM

One of the Coolest Things about working on 6th Street
is the people you meet. This particular day, a young
lady came into our office selling cookies with a “secret
ingredient”. Her name is Nevaeh Cortez – her name
mean gift from God ( and it is the word Heaven spelled
backward). She was accompanied by her helper and
younger brother ,Elijah Cortez. Nevaeh is ten years
old and has been baking since she was six. Dora, Nevaeh’s
mom told me she thinks Nevaeh gets her talent
for baking from her great grandmother Marie.
It certainly does seem to be in her blood. Nevaeh is
baking her cookies and selling them for $1 each or 6 for
$5 – a bargain at twice the price. I could not persuade
her to tell me the secret ingredient that makes her cookies
so exceptional but she did tell me that she is selling them
to be able to take baking classes. I learned that she also
bakes cakes; cinnamon swirl coffeecake is her favorite.
And if it is anything like her cookies it is exceptional too!
Elijah told me that he really likes helping his sister
to make the cookies and shared some of the tips
he has picked up from helping her. This dynamic
duo is just getting started. Nevaeh just created a
Facebook page “shebakes10” where you can get
a glimpse of her yummy creations. You can also
connect with Dora’s business “ Delicious Delivered”
which offers wonderful meals, trays and is
featuring a Thanksgiving Giveaway drawing for
victims of the hurricane to enter, so if you know if
anyone in that situation you can visit her webpage
directly from shebakes10.
“I will be giving away a Thanksgiving Dinner to 1
family in Galveston County that is misplaced from
their home due to the hurricane. **Families without a
kitchen or kitchen appliances especially** If you are a
member of one of those families please reach out to
me so that I can enter you into the drawing. If you know
a family in this situation you can have them reach out
to me or you can reach out to me on their behalf so
that I can enter them into the drawing. Drawing will be
one week before Thanksgiving. Thurs (11/16)”
This is a pretty special family with a lot of creativity
and an appreciation for working hard to make a dream
come true. So stop by and visit her on Facebook and
order some of those Heavenly Cookies!
