Peekskill bakery celebrates 50 years
Homestyle Desserts is celebrating 50 years of baking delicious treats for its customers.
Manager Laura Timmons says she makes sure the bakery keeps up with lifestyle trends -- with gluten-free and vegan treats.
Timmons' mother, Rosa Sanca, started the bakery by making cheesecakes and doughnuts at home. She later broadened her operation into a sugar-coated empire -- from a shop in Buchanan, to the present-day, ever-growing bakery in Peekskill that overlooks the Hudson River.
Sanca retired five years ago. Timmons and her brother, Jason Elias, have been running the family business ever since.
