Trending Now


We may aspire to buy seasonal fruits and vegetables, dress our babes in responsibly-sourced organic cotton, and skip that Florida vacay in favor of, say, a local production of King Lear.  But when it’s the dead of winter and your toddler is threatening to peel the paint from the walls if he doesn’t get a bowl of summery strawberries yesterday…you do what you gotta do (thanks for the free coffee, Trader Joe’s).  Here, we profile several D.C.-area business owners who also happen to be parents—so you can reduce your carbon footprint in solidarity with entrepreneurs who, bless their hearts, haven’t slept through the night since 2010.

Cherryllean Rodgers – Cherry’s Cheesecakes & Delights

Anyone who cooks, and has the nickname Grandma, is alright in our books. Because whatever their age it means the food will be amazing. And Cherryllean Rodgers of Cherry’s Cheesecakes doesn’t disappoint with her light and fluffy to-die-for cheesecakes, cheesecakes in a jar and even cheesecakes on a stick(!). Her cakes have won awards, and been featured in some of the biggest events in the country including Super Bowl XXXIX. One of her biggest customers? Deon Sanders, whose fav flavor is Strawberry.
