Heavenly baked goods made fresh in Scio

Contributing writer for The Canyon Weekly

Sourdough is the catalyst for a new Scio venture.

Heavenly Homemade Cooking Co. opened last May to rave reviews. Owner/baker Jordyn Daily loves cooking, and life’s circumstances nudged her into actively sharing that love with her neighbors. 

The twist? Daily’s offerings are mostly organic and sourdough based.

“I had been intrigued by sourdough for quite some time, but life was too busy to start the process because it truly is a process to keep up with,” Daily said. “After tragically losing the father of my children on Christmas Eve, I decided a time-consuming hobby was exactly what I needed, so I finally started my sourdough adventure.”

Daily quickly got the hang of making breads, cupcakes and other baked goods, and after a few months of practice posted on the local Scio community page on Facebook asking if anyone would be interested in buying some cinnamon rolls for Mother’s Day.

“Just as a way to make some extra money for my girls,” said the mother of two. “I got 15 orders the first day and I remember just crying, I felt so blessed. Once orders started going out, the feedback was so good I took it as sign to keep going as it’s a dream I have always had.

“If you know me, you know cooking and baking is my JAM, and I’m so excited to be able to share it with other people as well,” she added. 

Cinnamon rolls are still her most popular item with a variety of breads coming in a close second. Since the home bakery’s opening, items have been and continue to be added to the menu, Daily said.

“I plan on continuing to offer more and more as time goes on,” she said. “Including adding a website to simplify ordering for people and offering special orders such as cupcakes, birthday cakes and such that will not have to be sourdough.”

Daily said she has already had a few special requests and really enjoys helping people get exactly what they want. 

Orders are taken through Heavenly Homemade Cooking CO.’s Facebook page via Messenger. 

“I offer pick up or delivery as a way to make things a bit easier for customers,” she said. “This also allows me to make sure everyone is getting their products as fresh as possible.”

Organic cooking is “super important” to Daily. As she loves the benefits of sourdough, all items on her menu, including limited seasonal items, are organic and sourdough-based, she said.

Feedback has been positive to date, with customers raving about the bakery offerings. 

“Everything is amazing!” Joyce Shank said. “The cinnamon tolls are a MUST!”

Geri Mikkelson Edmiston ordered four dozen cupcakes for a retirement party, half chocolate and peanut butter and half strawberry.

“Both were delicious,” Edmiston said. “The peanut butter chocolate was a favorite. Delivered on time as well. I would definitely recommend Heavenly Homemade and would use them again!”

Nadia Heinrich loves the “absolutely amazing homemade bread and cinnamon rolls!” She gives Daily a 10 out of 10!

Elisabeth Jones called the sourdough bread “literally the best”.

“I absolutely love sharing my goodies with the community,” Daily said. “I’m so thankful for all of the positive feedback I’ve received.”

Prices are available on the Heavenly Homemade Cooking CO. Facebook page. Loaves run from $7 to $10 and come in garlic parmesan and jalapeño cheddar as well as two kinds of sourdough and more. Cinnamon rolls come with choice of caramel sauce or cream cheese frosting and cost $25 a dozen or $15 a half dozen. Also offered are sourdough dinner rolls, including choice of plain or honey butter for $7 a half dozen and $10 a full dozen. Extras include caramel sauce, cream cheese frosting ($4) and honey butter ($3). Delivery in Scio is $2 order and outside of Scio, $5. Customers can pick up orders in Scio or Lebanon.

“This has been a dream come true for me and I’m just getting started,” Daily said. “I cannot wait to bring all of my ideas to life for everyone!”
