On October 30, 2017, Chef Simone was featured on Steve Harvey’s talk show. She shared her recipe for success and the two of them emerged in laughter as she showed him how to make her famous Snicker Brownies.
When asked how she began whipping up tasty treats, Simone tells us:
"I started by baking with my grandma, Phyllis Williams-Harris when I was 3 years old. She’s a baker and she would always let me lick the spoons when she baked cakes. Later, I started helping her bake by measuring ingredients and stirring the batter.
When I was five, my parents bought me an Easy Bake oven for Christmas and then I baked treats for my cousins. I was added my own special ingredients to their mixes to make the dishes my own. With more baking sessions taught by my grandma, my skills increased. At age 11, I told my parents that I wanted my own bakery for Christmas. Voila! Now, I have my own store, called Goddess Food Factory. I sell all kinds of desserts and educational baking kits. We sell chef merchandise too, like aprons, chef hats, t-shirts, mittens, and more."
That Easy Bake oven is a gift Simone's parents won't soon forget!
