Our name, 'SNickelFritz Kitchens" is inspired by a playful nickname my Great Uncle Herb liked to use.  He had a sweet twinkle in his eye and a gentle laugh when he said it. He and my Aunt Lilli lived in a beautiful old house in Preston that always smelled like fresh baking and perked coffee.  Aunt Lilli (pronounced Lie-la)  always had something home made ready for a snack.  Both were local to Cambridge and both remain in my heart.  My name is a tribute to them and the feeling of warmth and love bestowed by them… with a little spark of humour.  


My twist?  My first name is Sandy, last name is Nickel.  I have been SNickel@ since email was born and was given that moniker by friends.  I would not be able to focus on baking and business without  my husband Adrian – he is my Fritz. 

I couldn’t think of a more appropriate name for my Kitchen. 


With much love,

- Sandy
