Tomorrow, Thursday 1/18/24: enriched sourdough dinner rolls and EVOO sourdough boules🥖 ❤️

👉 SOLD OUT sourdough olive oil round loaves at $9 each.
👉 TWO sets of rolls available at $12 each. Each set has 7 rolls.

We have been updating the numbers above as orders come in. Secure yours before they sell out!

If you have tried Honest rolls before, prepare for a wholly different and believe it or not, BETTER experience!
This fabulous new dough is enriched with butter and milk to create the creamiest crumb. Some of the flour is cooked before adding to the dough in order to have it retain more moisture and stay fresh longer.
Super crispy crust and tender, creamy crumb that will turn a little sandwich, slider or any meal into a memorable experience! 👩🏻‍🍳

Our sourdough loaves have also been improved with the addition of extra-virgin olive oil, with superb results!
It’s the perfect marriage of chemistry and art.

These breads take days to craft and could be eaten in minutes - they’re that fluffy, light and satisfying! 😍

To treat your tastebuds, text baker Sofia at 443-859-2439 or comment below to place your order. Thank you!

Note: photo shows unenriched sourdough; the new kind gets devoured so fast that it hasn’t been photographed yet. We will remedy that at the next opportunity!

SOLD OUT of English muffins again. If you would like to order some for next time, don’t hesitate to contact Honest Breads. THANK YOU, ALL!

Undeniable fact: you need to eat. 🍲
Also true: the better you eat, the better you feel. 💪

If you are able to consume wheat, dairy and eggs, artisan Honest English muffins are an excellent choice! 👌

This coming Tuesday, 1/16, discover the key to a delicious, elevated breakfast, brunch, lunch or snack that’s good for you! 😋

📣 Order your English muffins at $2.50 each by simply texting baker Sofia at 443-859-2439 or commenting below with the amount you would like. 📝

Once Honest Breads confirms that we will be able to fulfill your request, all you need to do is prepay via Venmo and you will receive details for pickup in Homestead Village, Bel Air. It’s that easy! 👍

Why pay $2.50 each when you can buy a 6-pack of the industrial kind at Target for $3.50? 🤔 Let us tell you why:

✅Honest English muffins are SO FLUFFY! About twice as tall as the commercial kind and much more aromatic, they will surprise you in the best way! 😄

✅ Honest Breads uses only the best ingredients: our English muffins are made with Nellie’s free range grade A brown eggs, US-grown King Arthur flour and organic milk. 🐮

✅ Our most important ingredient is TIME. We never rush the process with chemicals or excessive amounts of sugar. A batch of artisan English muffins can take 6 hours from beginning to end. As a result, gluten is naturally broken down further and nutrients are more readily bioavailable. ♥️

✅ Support a small local business while contributing to a world-wide cause. 15% of Honest Breads’ proceeds are donated to World Central Kitchen, which has so far fed 350 MILLION MEALS to disaster victims around the world. 🫶

✅ Earn prizes! Every few weeks we hold a drawing for free bread. $5 spent gets you one entry; a Facebook review on our page’s “Recommendations” after trying our products gets you one entry; every $5 voluntary donation gets you two entries. Winners are announced in our cute video messages. 🏆

SOLD OUT! Thank you so much for the fast response. We look forward to offering more English muffins next week for those who missed out.

🌾 Planning the perfect weekend breakfast?
Honest artisanal English muffins are what you need! ❤️

Lovingly crafted in small batches by your local cottage baker, these all-natural, fluffy delights beat store-bought by leaps and bounds. 😋
Don’t take our word for it and order now before they vanish! 💨 Limited availability.

For pickup tomorrow, Thursday 1/11, place your order by 10pm tonight, Wednesday 1/10. Simply let us know how many you need at $2.50 each, prepay on Venmo -romero-27 once you have received confirmation that we can fulfill your order, and baker Sofia will make the magic happen! 👩🏻‍🍳

🪟 If you cannot make the standard 3-4pm pickup window, we will arrange for contactless porch pickup. 👌

Happy new week!

We started our Monday with fabulous news: boot camp is over. We have given the orthopedic boot the boot!!!!

The new status involves an ankle brace AND being allowed to drive 🙌🙌🙌🙌 🥳🤩🥹😭
This came much sooner than expected and yet it has felt like a long time, that’s why it’s an emotional moment, brimming with gratitude.

What does this mean for you all? Honest Breads is slowly going BACK TO BAKING! Not quite full schedule because of all the physical therapy appointments and not wanting to overdo it, plus having to tweak our poor 30-year-old oven’s thermostat, which is tired and throwing tantrums…

Please join me in welcoming back our popular, fluffy artisan English muffins this Thursday, 1/11.

Pre-purchase yours for $2.50/unit, no minimum order. Pickup is between 3 and 4pm; should you need to pick up later, we can set up a contactless porch pickup.

Prepared in small batches to order only; there will be no extras and we expect to sell out fast. Orders will be considered confirmed once prepaid via Venmo.

To order, simply:

We VERY MUCH appreciate our select customers of the non-female gender and hope they have a sense of humor! 😆

By the way, this is a phenomenon that still eludes me: why are there are so few Honest men?

Tongue-in-cheek jokes aside, I really would love to find out why ordering artisan bread has fallen into the category of “jobs that mostly a woman does”.
91.7% of the Honest Breads following is made up of women!

What is your take on this, whether you are male or female? Is there a cultural reason that I’m missing because I’m foreign?

In my country, on January 5th before bed, every family member sets one shoe under the tree for the Three Kings to leave presents in, under and around it. It’s our version of Christmas presents but on the actual Epiphany.
Anyway, guess which is my shoe… 😎

Wonderful news from my doctor today 🙌🙌🙌

I had been told to expect not to be able to walk unaided until close to February, possibly. Well, today I was given the green light to start putting pressure on my foot, four weeks sooner than the earliest date expected before! An early Christmas miracle! 🤗

If felt good to have the bandages and splint removed and upgrade to an orthopedic boot that I can take off to sleep and shower 😍. “You can wash your foot” never sounded so sweet 🤭

Thanks so all who have wished me a speedy recovery, because the wish is coming true! I will continue to follow doctors orders and keep the crutches around for balance (I already had a minor fall this evening🥴, but fell on pillows!!! 😅), and expect to be back to baking sooner rather than later at the start of the year.

I really feel like celebrating and wanted to share my joy. Thank you, lovely friends, for your support! I saw that this weekend we surpassed 450 followers, which also feels incredible. What a way to start the week!!! 🥳❤️❤️❤️

Lumps of coal! 🪨

Artisan black cocoa marshmallows, 4 “lumps” to a pack:

1 pack = $3

4 packs = $10 🥳

Packaged with a cute ribbon and bell, they will look so tempting in those stockings you can’t wait to fill! 🌲

Available for contactless pickup starting tomorrow, Monday 12/18. 🤗

🏃🏻‍♀️I expect they will go fast! Let me know in the comments or via DM how many you are reserving. If you need a faster response, please text Sofia at 443-859-2439. 📱

Handmade marshmallows are worlds apart from their store-bought counterparts!
The aroma of these deeply chocolatey wonders will remind you of Oreo cookies because of their high content in black cocoa (the fanciest, most expensive and healthiest kind of cocoa powder), but GREAT NEWS: Honest marshmallows are hand made and 100% natural!
Pure vanilla extract, sugar and corn syrup (but NOT the high fructose kind) plus a little coffee (amount safe for children) work together with natural gelatine to form the best texture and flavor one can imagine in a marshmallow!
😋😋😋

Get your hot milk or hot cocoa ready for the best topping you have tried yet. ☕️

🤩 Friends and family will oooh and aaah over these Honest Lumps of Coal!

*I know, I know - you’re all lining up for bread! I cannot bake for you all yet but was able to whip these up. It took a long time with my current level of mobility but I managed and am so happy with how they turned out! 🙌

Notes:
💕Packs will be considered reserved once paid via Venmo. Should you require an alternative payment method, please contact us.

💕15% of proceeds is donated to World Central Kitchen.

💕Every $5 you spend gets you one free entry into our next giveaway.

💕Every $5 you donate above asking price goes straight to World Central Kitchen and gives you TWO entries for our next giveaway.

I CANNOT wait to receive my order from Alaina's Gourmet Creations this coming Tuesday!
Today, Saturday 12/16 is the cutoff for Tuesday’s gourmet dishes.

I’m going to try the sea bass with mashed sweet potatoes, the chicken with prosciutto, the shrimp lettuce wraps and the vegetable manicotti. The kids will also enjoy Alaina’s daughter’s creations: raspberry thumbprint cookies and pecan cheesecake. YUM!!!!

I would not recommend something I don’t believe in. Alaina is fully licensed and her food is made from scratch by a small, local family business which I proudly support without receiving anything in return. Will you join me?

🧈🕯️ Psst, have you heard of a BUTTER CANDLE?

😋Pictured is one of our Honest whole wheat EVOO sourdough loaves with a lovely wintery scene of 8 cozy, hand-carved pine trees and a butter candle in the middle, the BEST idea for a special brunch, appetizer or dinner!

🗓️ As soon as we are back to baking in 2024, you can have your own loaf of sourdough! Let us know in the comments if you’d like to be notified in a few weeks when these loaves become available again.

👉 Here is how to easily delight everyone at a gathering:

👩🏻‍🍳 You make a compound butter (melt butter in a small pot or pan with some roasted garlic and/or herbs of your choice, plus salt if using unsalted butter) and strain into a paper cup or a cup lined with parchment. Add a food safe wick (see NOTES below).

🕰️ Let it solidify in the refrigerator or freezer and voilà, you have created a butter candle! SO EASY!

🥖 Take a loaf of really good bread, cut out a hole the size of your candle, remove candle from paper and stuff into the hollowed-out bit.

🔥 Light wick and watch as your beautiful flavored butter melts. Slice the crumb you removed, dip in the butter and give thanks that you are alive and well enough to enjoy this heavenly experience!!! 🙌

NOTES:

🐝 I used “Bee Line Organic H**p wick with beeswax, set of three” from Amazon. I have seen negative reviews on other wicks (smoke, unpleasant smell) but this one worked perfectly for the butter candle.

🤗 A wider candle will make dipping easier.

🫕 Cutting your bread into thin strips will make for a fun dipping experience if using a sturdy bread like this sourdough or an Italian loaf. If using brioche, challah or other softer bread, cube and provide bamboo skewers or fondue fourchettes.

🔪 Dont be afraid to slice more bread around the candle to keep dipping, but keep a safe distance from the melted butter to avoid spills and burns!

💡 Ideally, to preserve the integrity and beauty of your presentation, you would have one decorated loaf to hold the butter and slice a different loaf for dipping. You could offer a tray with different kinds of bread! Pretzel, French, seeded, cranberry-walnut, Italian, sourdough… You can also experiment with cinnamon-flavored butter or whatever takes your fancy. The sky’s the limit! ENJOY!!!

If you like a good deal, DON’T WALK; RUN!
$1 off their cupcakes today means a discount of over 26% 😮

Today only at Flavor Cupcakery, 118 N Tollgate Road Bel Air, MD 21014. Tel 443-371-6664. Open until 7pm, though I imagine their cupcakes are likely to sell out earlier than that.

I do not benefit from your Flavor Cupcakery purchase; just sharing a great offer by a fellow small local business. Flavor uses excellent ingredients and methods, and if you haven’t tried their DELICIOUS goodies you are missing out!

My daughter once made a cake at a Flavor class and froze it for weeks. It tasted perfectly fresh and absolutely fabulous when we defrosted it 🤤. Today’s cupcakes will have been defrosted and, knowing Flavor’s quality standard, you won’t even tell the difference 🤩

You’re welcome 😉

If you have made any of the above between 10/9/23 and 12/1/23, THANK YOU and your name is in the hat!

There is someone with 1 entry, someone else with 64 and everyone else has some number in between. However, in the past we have been surprised at how statistics meant nothing in the end 🤪

Honest Breads is getting ready for giveaway #14 to celebrate yet another donation to World Central Kitchen, which brings us to a grand total of $4,233 since our first donation on 4/12/22 🎉

Good luck and keep an eye on this space to see who the lucky winners are 🍀

Just a slice of this Honest cinnamon swirl, lightly toasted and buttered on one side: the PERFECT bite with a café au lait!
This will be a new item on our menu come the next baking season once this baker is back on her feet in a few weeks! A $17 loaf equivalent in weight to a $21 half dozen plain cinnamon rolls.

If you are still looking for a Christmas present for a bread lover, this knife made in the USA would make a great gift!
You place the handle on the side rather than above the bread, and by all accounts the slices are perfect every time, whether it be a crusty Italian or a soft sandwich loaf that is being sliced.

Maybe you can put it on your wish list 😉

*I have no affiliation to Amazon or to this manufacturer and will not be rewarded if you make this purchase; this is just a genuine tip for anyone who may benefit!*
