COVID-19 has shaken up the world.
As high-risk persons, my husband and I are sheltering in place as a self-preservation tactic.
As a small business owner, I understand the fears people can have regarding shopping. The good news is that many on-line businesses remain open and we need your support now more than ever.
Thank you for your contiuing support of my blog and my shop.
We Coalcrackers are a tough lot; hang in there my friends!
A word about COVID-19 and my online shop:
As we all join together in doing our part to protect loved ones and ourselves in this current pandemic I want to help provide peace of mind to you regarding how we are handling the COVID-19 response in the Coalcracker Kitchen, studio, and home for online shopping from my store:
#1: EVERY item for sale in the shop and all the supplies used to create them were introduced to stock well BEFORE COVID-19 was discovered. Once created, items were stored in plastic containers in a pet-free zone.
#2: My studio and home are cleaned and sanitized thoroughly on a regular basis; my husband and I are high-risk during normal cold and flu season, so we take no chances.
#3: I do all my own packing and creating with no outside help. I ship using Paypal labels and deposit packages into a USPS postal box with no need for postal window service.
#4: Our home, ourselves, and my studio are all COVID-19 free work zones and our lives literally depend on it remaining that way. In other words, we are as careful as humanly possible.

Sharing coal region comfort foods and nostalgia
Born and raised “a coal miner’s daughter” in Schuylkill County in the Anthracite Region of Pennsylvania, I love to share recipes and memories of home with fellow “coalcrackers” and celebrate our unique blending of Eastern European and Pennsylvania Dutch heritage and cuisines here in northeast Pennsylvania.
