Whole Wheat Sandwich Bread

Thumbnail for 2430
I have woefully neglected by bread-making over the last couple of years. Even though I’ve always to be that person that baked fresh bread every single week, it just didn’t happen. We’ve been keeping a steady stream of grocery store bakery bread in the house, and a couple of weeks ago I decided to revisit my attempt to keep o [...]

For as long as I can remember, coconut never really did much for me when it came to dessert. Sure, coconut included in something like carrot cake was great, but just coconut… as a primary flavor? Meh. Then, last summer, something happened. I made toasted coconut and dark chocolate chunk ice cream, and it was like the heavens opened and [...]

Picture This

Thumbnail for 2400
So Shawna A. asked her bakery to make a cake just like this one from Pink Cake Box: To make it easier, she even brought in a print-out of this picture. And, since she wanted her cake to say “Welcome Little Monkey” instead of “Happy Birthday,” she was sure to cross that bit out. That way, there could be no confusion wh [...]
