Album Side Saturday is Back!
June 9, 2018 
4p - 8p

We are excited to be partnering with Aishanae J. of  to bring a great selection of comfort food and desserts!

I love watching people taste my creations for the first time, it makes every sleepless night, every experiment, every tear & every burned or cut finger worth it.
-Aishanae J

Dessert Therapy is a company under an umbrella by the name of Eating With Aisha. The umbrella houses Dessert Therapy, Mama Dee's classic comforts Catering and Renegade sauce company. Eating With Aisha was started by myself and my mother who passed away in September 2017, so it's something that helps me through the grieving process. 
As a child my parents owned restaurants in California and when I became of legal age to work in the US my first job was a serving/waitress job at a local Denny's. And at 21, I moved into bartending and onto opening my first restaurant at the age of 24.
The name Dessert Therapy came about while my mom extremely sick and going through chemotherapy. Her & I would create recipes and test out what we called "experiments" in order to keep her mind off of the stress and the pain. Cooking & baking was therapeutic, they both were instrumental in the healing process for both of us as my mom & I are both extreme foodies. 
My goal is to show young girls that they can do anything and that dreams can become a reality. A portion of my profits go to making backpacks at the beginning each school year for children that are less fortunate. I made the decision to do this because every August - September it was something that my mom always did no matter how much money she had or how sick she was she always made sure that she got backpacks, school supplies, and clothing for the children in the neighborhood that couldn't afford to have those things. As women, we need to know how to love ourselves, how to be ourselves, and how to positively empower other women because truth is Empowered women, Empower women.
