Persimmon Pudding

Many of you landing on this page today are probably looking for our gluten free version of the Finnish Pulla. Time just did not allow us to develop yet another yeast-based bread recipe. We hope to deliver this sometime in the new year.

Hearts for Valentine’s Day

Hearts for Valentine's Day

We are back to a full posting schedule, having devoted most of January to the finalization of our upcoming book, followed by a short trip out to California the beginning of this month. Time just flies, especially when there just don’t seem to be enough hours in the day to fit in all that is necessary for this big book  project.  We needed to recharge our batteries, recenter and refocus on what we really love to do – sharing what we have learned with all of you, our friends and family.
