I am Maria Leyesa, a first generation Filipino-American and I originally created my social media account, Foodologie,
in 2014 as an outlet to express and
share my genuine love and passion for food.
I have nearly 10 years of experience in the hospitality industry, where I gained valuable experience and insight in regards to the importance of high quality food and customer service.
For a period of time, Foodologie was put aside as I began to focus on my full-time career as an Occupational Therapist.
However, in March 2020 at the start of the pandemic and quarantine, I found myself with extra time at home, resulting in me finally pursuing a lifelong desire of learning how to bake.
Initially, I poked fun at my trial-and-error recipes
taking to my instagram page all of my less than desirable creations.
Although, it was not too long until I found myself perfecting several recipes, which in turn led to people inquiring about placing orders.
To my surprise, in just a short period of time Foodologie has grown into a thriving small business. With my recent success,
I wanted to use my newfound talent and passion for good, thus I created
Baked Goods For The Greater Good,
where I donate baked goods or proceeds from sales to both local and worldwide organizations.
I have so far shaped Foodologie to be a business that not only focuses on creating high quality, small batch, aesthetically pleasing treats, but I also strive to provide an all around memorable experience for you, your tastebuds, and your loved ones all while adding some good into the world.
I've said it many times before and i'll say it a million trillion times more.
MANY THANK YOU'S FOR ALL YOUR LOVE AND SUPPORT.
