1 days 3 hours ago | | | Email

Linda Pospisil, of Sedalia, has loved baking all her life, and it comes naturally, passed down from the Klein side of her family — German immigrants who settled in this area in 1852. She loves it so much she’s stared her own little baking business.“I’ve always baked, I think Easy-Bake Oven came out when I was little,” she said laughing. “And I got one. My great-aunt bought me one.”Pospisil recently began a new baking venture after leaving Western Missouri Medical Center in Warrensburg in October last year as a respiratory therapist. In May she began “The Little Red Hen Bakery” and started selling her wares at the Sedalia Area Farmers Market on Tuesdays and Fridays.
