Tinker Verve

creating with spirit & enthusiasm…often with great results

only the freshest…

I like ‘trying’ to carry on some of the skills that the women who’ve come before me considered essentials in their daily lives.

sewing, knitting, gardening, quilting, cooking, bread making…

When I have a loaf of bread baking in the oven, often…without even thinking about it, I’ll take a deep breath and have the slight sense the my eyes are rolling back in my head…the fragrance is simply intoxicating.

It’s so rewarding to team warm, freshly-ground flour and golden, local honey with the remaining ingredients to come up with just the right loaf.

There just isn’t anything like that first fresh, warm slice….

  2. I’m with you on this one. Larelle has been making the most wonderful breads lately. Bread in the oven smells sooooo good! And that first bite of warm bread slathered in butter can’t be beat. And the cost savings and health benefits are just the bonus!
