Happy Summer!!
Happy Father’s Day!!

Can you smell the aroma of sourdough bread?

This week I am baking 3 types of sourdough. Classic Sourdough Sandwich Bread. Buckwheat Honey Whole-wheat Sandwich Bread and Swirl of the 2 doughs Sandwich Bread.
Feed your family with healthy and delicious bread. My sourdough starter was created in 1995 and is still happy. I use only starter in these breads for leavening. The tang and aroma are amazing.

I love to toast these breads and add butter and jam or I add a slice of sharp cheddar to complement the flavor.

Order yours by Friday, June 18th at noon.

It's May! Time for Celebrations!!

May is the perfect time of year to celebrate so many occasions. Mother's Day, my birthday, Teacher Appreciation, Retirements, Memorial Day. What better way to celebrate this time than to enjoy the taste of delightful, sweet treats.

This Saturday there will be savory Focaccia, seasoned with fresh garlic, rosemary, tomatoes, capers, Maldon's Finishing Salt and aromatic freshly ground Tallicherry Black Pepper.

I am delighted to offer an amazing addition to my Cinnamon Buns. I have added fresh cubes of Honeycrisp Apples, Dried Cranberries, and Apricots to the original pillowy soft cinnamon buns. My taste testers can attest to their delight when indulging.

Looking forward to my continued exploration of new sourdough breads and other delights.

Herbs are growing so well.  There're fresh Rosemary, Garlic, Parsley, Thyme, Oregano, Basil, Cilantro, Spring Onions, Chives, Dill, and Mint that are ready to use.  What better way to use them but on a fresh Italian Focaccia!

Focaccia is a flat oven-baked Italian bread similar in style and texture to pizza; in some places, it is called "pizza bianca". It can be served as a side dish or as sandwich bread.  I love Focaccia to eat on its own, slice and eat for the bread of a sandwich, or dipping my it in extra virgin olive oil seasoned with grated Pecorino Romano Cheese and Freshly Cracked Black Pepper.  My version is a sourdough base that are so light in crumb, fragrant and flavorful.  In a word, yum!

This week I'm offering Fresh Focaccia with 3 different varieties of delicious toppings.  The first is the authentic original that includes fresh Garlic, Rosemary, Salt and Pepper.  The second adds Cherry Tomatoes to the authentic original. The third offers all of the above along with fresh Chives, and Capers.  All the herbs are directly from my organic garden.  (The tomatoes are not yet from my garden.  They will join the array later this Summer)

I will also be selling my tray of Cinnamon Buns as well.  They are a weekend favorite for so many.

Order your breads by Friday, April 30th by noon.   Pickup or delivery is Saturday, May 1 between 10am and noon.

It's Been Awhile!
It's been awhile since I've been able to bake for you. As many of you know, we had a family medical crisis toward the end of March.
Our son, Brian, had emergency back surgery for a very serious condition. The surgery was a success, thank goodness. It is a long road to recovery, but he is working hard everyday and is getting stronger. Thank you for your support and kindness during our family crisis. I've been itching to bake and see the happy smiles from you.

I'm selling cinnamon buns this week to kick off a delightful Spring. I know many of you sent me messages requesting cinnamon buns and I wasn't able to provide them during that time.

So, for this weekend, Cinnamon Buns are available!!! YIPPEE!!

Order yours by Friday, April 23 by noon to reserve your pan of amazing treats.

See you Saturday, April 24 between 10am and Noon.

HAPPY SPRING!!

Cinnamon Buns!
Back by demand and requests.

Soft, tender, pillowy, sweet and soul satisfying. I had a piece several days after one was baked. I popped it in the oven at 300*F for 5 minutes. It was soft, tender, and still pillowy. I enjoyed it with a cup of coffee.

Irish Soda Bread is a classic loaf baked around St. Patrick’s Day, but has its roots in bread making traditions of Native Americans who used pearl ash to make a leavened bread without yeast.

In my own household, I am sure to make this for our corned beef and cabbage but make it throughout the year as well because I just love the taste.

This Soda Bread is slightly sweet with a bit of sugar and lots of black currants, enhanced with crushed caraway seeds and sourdough starter. This bread is moist, flavorful, and incredible when toasted – I love toasting it for breakfast with a pat of butter and a dollop of jam.

There are two sizes available – an 8″ loaf (2.25lb) Family Size for $12, and a 6″ loaf (1.25lb) for $7 which feeds 2-3 people.

Order your bread by Tuesday, March 16 at 4PM.

Pickup of this bread is this Wednesday, March 17, between 9 and 11am.

Thank you also for your continued support and votes.
The quarter final ends this Thursday, March 18, at 6PM PST!
