Dear Robin,
I'm sure you are not going to want to hear this, but in my locale (and I've heard that California is very stringent in this regard), if you are going to prepare food for wholesale or retail sale to the public (general or private) you must prepare that food in an approved & inspected food service facility, and in most areas, that facility cannot be in a private residence, single family or other.....your facility in most areas must be approved by the zoning & planning board, fire protection department, plumbing & electrical inspectors & the enviromental health inspector (health depart) for the exact requirments for your venture, contact the agency that inspects food service outlets,,,, without the proper licensing & inspection, insurance coverage (that is in force) will be impossible to secure & guarantee coverage,,,so without that licensure you are opening yourself & family up to major financial liabilities.....feel free to email me directly if you have further questions,,,,sam sears, cec
