About WCB

What's in a name?

In the early 1900s, Hopewell was dubbed “The Wonder City” for quickly becoming a booming industrial center and bouncing back after a devastating downtown fire. While the city has had many ups and downs since then, hope and a sense of community still run strong.


Hi, I'm Trish. The person who bakes stuff.

I grew up in a family of fierce home cooks and eaters, so food has always played a big role in my life. It wasn't until my undergrad years at UVa, however, that I started experimenting more in the kitchen. I even started a food blog ("before it was cool"), but it fizzled out pretty quickly. Cringe. Many failures, successes, and calories later, here I am. Wiser. More experienced. Maybe a little pudgier.

I worked for nearly seven years at a law firm in Richmond, where I met my now-husband, Scott. Right before we got hitched, we moved to the small city of Hopewell, where Scott grew up. I recently left the legal field to pursue baking full time and am honored to contribute to the Wonder City by doing what I love: offering yummy, soul-satisfying homemade treats.

If you see me around, give a shout!

I currently bake out of my Hopewell residence under Virginia's cottage food laws.  I'll update this section when that changes!
