one of my favorites from our collaborator jen @knot_justpretzels…the BABKA “MUFFIN.” it’s more like an individual babka cake, and about 2.5x the size of our normal muffins. made with yeasted dough, and layers of chocolate filling, chocolate chips, and sugar…just ask us to warm it up a bit to let that chocolate filling really shine. we’re so grateful to jen for always helping us fill our case, and wish her luck with hand surgery next week! in my experience, few people work as arduously and constantly as bakers, and our hands take a BEATING for it. jen’s got a few years of experience on me, and i’m already facing some of the same issues with my hands! but it’s the love we put forth to bring delicious things to our community, and even some surgeries can’t keep jen down! she’ll be back in a few weeks — we can’t wait til then! 🙏🏼❤️🙌🏼

i wandered lonely as a cloud…into rwb to grab these pomegranate-rose dipped vanilla madeleines…and then my heart with pleasure filled!

everyone needs some daffodils to feel a little springy on these negative-degree days. as i gaze out upon endless white, i look to my inward eye to see them poking through the late-april snow in a couple months, giving us that early spring hope of sunnier climes, regrowth, and bliss. 🙏🏼❤️💐

SNOW DAY!!! RWB IS CLOSED FRIDAY, FEB 4th.

at the cancellation of mascoma and my husband’s school districts, as well as the reports of so much ice hidden underneath the snow, we think it’s the right call to stay home today. we urge everyone to be safe, stay home, and take it slow and steady if you have to be on the roads!

SEE YOU SATURDAY FOR LOTS OF GOODIES!!!!!

good morning rwb community!

it has become tradition when new hampshire magazine releases their 'best of new hampshire' polls that i take the time to reflect on the year behind us. as we close out january, i find myself commiserating with many of my close friends that it has been a tough first month of 2022. whether you're a fan of subzero temps or not (i'm decidedly NOT, but then – i'm a baker, not a skier), it's no question that trying to start your car at 6am when the thermostat reads -18 is no fun for any among us. other reasons for a lackluster month range from personal to global...but one thing in common is that no one seems to be getting a break lately: rising prices in food, gas, paper goods, and utilities, feuds with the post office, law enforcement not letting anyone off with a warning, dental surgeries with complications, teacher burnout, frozen pipes, delayed deliveries, unplanned repairs, booster blues, and what seems like everyone...everyone...everyone (and their great aunt)...getting covid. at this point it's a covid carousel ride and it feels like someone close is always riding – and you're just laying in wait for your turn to go round. sometimes i look around and it feels...bleak.

but -

i happen to be, personally, literally, in the business of making people happy. and for what it's worth: that makes me very, very happy. i love my job, i love the bakery, i love canaan, and i love the people i see day-to-day inside my small little bakery bubble of joy. sometimes it's hard, of course, and we've run into no shortage of issues, fears, and unexpected expenses this last year of business. during these slower months i often worry about the long expanse of winter and how rwb will make it to the sunnier side of the year. on snowy days i think, 'surely no one will brave this weather for a muffin or breakfast sandwich'; when no customer comes in for 20 minutes i fear the whole day will go by in the same regard. and every - single - time...my fears are dashed: we're hit with a rush, the phone rings off the hook, we're bogged down with takeout orders, we're flying to the basement to grab more supplies from the freezer, a snowmobile crew fills the place up, and our regulars make the trek through snow, ice, slush, and freezing rain to support us. i'm sincerely moved by the generosity of our community day after day.

rwb has made great strides this past year. i feel less and less like we are in survival mode at all times, and more in charge of what happens in all facets of my business (this took a LONG time and a LOT of help to accomplish). and while i'm still learning to be the best business owner, baker, and community member that i can be, i have felt a markéd difference over the past several months. it helps that i no longer spend every waking moment at the bakery (those who used to pass by in the wee hours and see the lights on know it to be true), i met, fell in love with, and married someone who supports me in and out of the bakery, and i have cultivated a terrific employee-base who take on countless tasks that used to weigh me down. it has taken a village, and the village goes above and beyond.

you, our community, honor us every day with your patronage, your kindness, your empathy, and your willingness to support your neighborhood bakery. we could not be more grateful. obviously, today we share with you the link to vote on your favorite new hampshire spots and hope you'll keep rwb in mind as you vote – we'd love to bring home 'best bakery' for a third year. but more importantly, i wish everyone a collective rebellion against the bleakness: more grace as we enter february – more empathy, more kindness, and, heck, more baked goods! rwb is here to offer a little more happiness whenever you need it. thank you.

our story

in 1997, red wagon bakery was unofficially started when a 7yr old girl named nellie wheeled her red radio flyer wagon down the hill from her home and sold cookies out of it for 25¢ a piece to local high school students. soon, she began taking orders by the dozen and a business began. her mother helped by incorporating nellie's love of baking into her homeschool curriculum. math became measurements and business acumen; literature became reading cookbooks and writing recipes; gym class was wheeling her wagon around the neighborhood making deliveries. fast forward 21 years and nellie is still baking, and her mother is still helping her with the math. after living in new york city for three years, when the opportunity arose to return to her longtime home of canaan and open a bakery, nellie seized the opportunity. thus, the *official* red wagon bakery was born. what you see today is the realized dream of that 7yr old girl with a red wagon.

I was too slow to get a "before" of the French toast, so instead I'll post an "almost after". Safe to say it was a hit and Penny has a new favorite.

Have a great vacation!
This is Nellie. When Nellie opened red wagon bakery in March of 2019, I had a four-month-old baby and a larger-than-average garden. The garden was “my thing” while I learned how to become a parent—while I learned how to exist for someone else but still hold on to myself. With Annie contained by bulb crates and distracted by old cookie tins, I worked. And I grew more food than we could eat. Maybe I was brave enough to ask, or maybe Angus made the connection for me. I don’t remember. Either way, I asked Nellie if she’d be up for purchasing vegetables for the bakery. In her first year of business, knowing they’d be more expensive with variable supply, she said yes. Before the garden became a farm, Nellie was my first customer. She gave me the confidence to plan a business. She created a community space that supports the local economy. She’s successful, and kind, and a total boss. Oh yeah, and before I forget the most important part, she is one hell of a baker. Thank you, Nellie. Maybe this year we’ll get better about picking up the compost before it’s overflowing! ❤️ #womensupportingwomen #supportlocal #nheatslocal #nheatslocalmonth #localcompost

This morning I learned that my rain gear is indeed old, worn out, and in need of replacing. If you need greens for the weekend, you can find them at Jake's Market & Deli in Enfield or Upper Valley Food Coop in WRJ. If you want someone else to make you a salad with Open Woods greens, go eat at Lucky's Coffee Garage in Leb or red wagon bakery in Canaan. AND! If you want to support local businesses and grocery shop close to home... I will be at the Canaan Farmers Market on Sunday.
Hope you have some energy balls set aside for you and your staff, tomorrow's going to be nuts!!
