In the hour-long program, Hundt shows WKAR’s Susi Elkins the secrets of making gingerbread men, the perfect pie crust, “Mommy’s Pumpkin Praline Cheesecake Pie” and a coffee cake perfect to brighten any holiday morning.

As they prepare the holiday treats, Linda shares some of the stories behind her baking. Family plays a huge role in her life and she explains how she captured her brother’s hearts when she had her first Easy Bake Oven as a child. It was the start of a long career in the kitchen, culminating in the opening of her shop seven years ago.
