People talk a lot about comfort food, but the lowly bar is rarely mentioned in that category. Don't know why, because bars are a staple for most households.  They are desserts for the family, treats for get togethers and omni-present at every pot luck that ever happened.  More than that, they are just plain good food.

Here's a list of bars we make, just click on the link for a full description and picture of the bar!

  • Chocolate Krispie Bars
  • Lemon Bars
  • Pumpkin Cheesecake Bars
  • Cream Cheese Brownies


Muffins are, in many ways, the red-headed stepchild of the bakery world.  They're one of those things that sound good in theory but the homemade variety rarely live up to their true potential as seen in coffee houses around the country.  But then I discovered "jumbo muffin tins" and the glory of making these delicious treats!  Who knew that breakfast could be both this good (tasting) and good (for you)!

Here's a list of muffins we make, just click on the link for a full description and picture of the muffin!

  • Blueberry Streusel
  • Camel Apple Muffin
  • Lemon Spice Muffin
  • Orange Cranberry Muffin


I love to make bread, there's just something about the process that connects me to the past, to a time when life depended on the food you made with your own hands. In many ways making bread is making life.
