After arming herself with baked goods, it looks like Ivanka Trump might finally be on better terms with her new neighbors.

The Financial Times reported Thursday that the first daughter made amends with people in Kalorama, a prestigious neighborhood in Washington, D.C., by going door to door with her kids and some baked treats. According to a once-”wary” neighbor interviewed by the FT, it worked out well.

“Lovely, just lovely,” Rhona Friedman said of Trump. “People who know her say the same thing: that she’s very gracious.”
