Sara Kahne has a quote by Oprah Winfrey  written on a felt board in her “cookie room” that reads “do what you have to do until you can do what you want to do.”

The former dining room, which is now named the cookie room in her family’s New Lenox home, is where she creates her cookie masterpieces in hopes that she can one day have her own shop. Seeing other bakeries also inspires her.
