Shaping baguettes with my little bird buddies. I love my view this morning!

Sourdough Olive…I’ve missed this bread! You can get yours this weekend at Juniata River Commons and there’s still time to order for Carlisle pickup or Saturday delivery. I don’t make this bread too often, so don’t miss your chance!

Happy Monday! I hope everyone has stayed warm over these last few windy and chilly days. I actually love cold weather-it’s a great excuse to stay in, build a fire, put on a pot of soup and do lots of baking!
If you missed yesterday’s post, I’m really pleased to announce that focaccia will now be a weekly offering. This week will be Potato and Rosemary. It always reminds me of my time in Italy! I’m also bringing back the Sourdough Olive Boule. It goes nicely with so many winter meals. I hope you’ll give it a try this week!
Breads will be at Juniata River Commons starting on Thursday. People's Provisions will be back next week and I’m really looking forward to baking for all of my Perry County customers there again! Breads can be picked up at my location Friday and Saturday and, as always, FREE delivery in Carlisle Borough on Saturday morning.
You can order here, message me or order directly at www.thewholesomeloaf.com
Please have orders in by 12:30 PM the day before. This really helps to ensure proper sourdough fermentation!

I’m really excited about something new that will now be offered on a weekly basis…it’s Focaccia! They’ve been quite popular lately and I’ve had many requests, so I’ve decided to make them a weekly menu item that will rotate in flavor options similar to the scones. If you have any flavor/topping ideas please feel free to let me know!

01/13/2024

I have a huge mixer that I really should use, but I almost never do, because nothing beats the feeling of getting my hands in the dough and working it until I know it feels right. In the early morning hours when it’s dark outside and the rest of the house is asleep, the kneading becomes meditative.
I might regret this years down the road when my hands are tired and arthritic, but it’s worth it to me to have the joy of kneading dough for all of you right now.
Today I will knead. Tomorrow my hands will rest.

Just a sampling of some goodies headed to Juniata River Commons this morning…

There’s still a few hours left to get Friday orders in and plenty of time for Saturday orders. Make sure you get them in on time!

That lovely open crumb on tonight’s focaccia is the signature of a well fermented dough. It makes me happy every time!

Happy Monday! I hope everyone enjoyed this beautiful snowy weekend. I truly love a good snow and had such a blast taking my kids sledding and building snowmen in the backyard!
This week sees a new product-Tomato, Mozzarella and Fresh Herb Focaccia. I mostly make this in the summer, but it’s nice to change things up a bit after the holidays and a little lighter. These are great as an after school snack for the kids, a side dish or a meal by themselves paired with some salad or roasted veggies.
Bread will be at Juniata River Commons on Thursday. People's Provisions is still on a break, but breads will be back there later in January when they reopen! Pickup can be scheduled at my location Friday and Saturday and, as always, FREE Carlisle Borough delivery on Saturday morning.
You can order here, message me or go directly to www.thewholesomeloaf.com

I finally got around to tallying the many loaves of Crusty Italian that everyone purchased over the holidays in support of World Central Kitchen. Everyone was so generous and it gave me such joy to be able to send off our donation this morning. I’m always amazed at how so many of you step up every time I run a campaign to support charitable organizations both locally and globally. Thank you all SO much!

This week’s menu will posted tomorrow (it’s on the website as of yesterday.)
For now I’m savoring the last moments of my week off before life inevitably gets hectic again. Tonight we enjoyed some savory scones (Pepper Jack and Rosemary) with our New Year’s dinner. Cheers to 2024 and I look forward to seeing many of you again this week!

Fougasse week is always fun! Find some of these plus lots more delicious breads, scones and granola at People's Provisions and Juniata River Commons today. All of the breads freeze really well, so you can pick up before Christmas. And, I’ll be doing a bonus bake for People’s Provisions on Saturday so you can get some extra fresh goodies!

A few items are taking a pause this week. Sourdough Rye and Granola will be back after the holidays!
Also, this is the last week of the fundraiser to support World Central Kitchen. If you haven’t ordered any Crusty Italian yet, this is a great week to try it and support families facing hunger in war ravaged countries.

After receiving numerous requests, gift cards are here just in time for the holidays! They’re always available online, but if you’d like a paper card to gift, they are finally in stock!

Happy Monday! I’m so excited to announce that Panettone is back for the holidays! I’ve waited a whole year to make these again (they’re too addicting-I can’t keep them in the house!) If you didn’t get a chance to try them last year, make sure you don’t miss out. They will only be available for 2 weeks and then they go away until next winter!
Just a reminder that the promotion to benefit World Central Kitchen continues for a few more weeks. 25% of the proceeds from each loaf of Crusty Italian sold will go to help feed hungry families in the Middle East and many other war torn/disaster stricken areas all over the world. There is true healing in food and I’m so pleased that we can help in this way.
Breads will be available at People's Provisions and Juniata River Commons starting on This this week. Orders can be picked up at my location Friday and Saturday and, as always, 100% FREE delivery in Carlisle Borough on Saturday morning.
You can order here, message me or go to directly to www.thewholesomeloaf.com

Just a peek at some of the beautiful, local ingredients that go into these breads. I’m really proud to partner with so many local farmers and artisans. It means you’re not just buying local bread, but supporting so many other small businesses as well. Support like this really matters in our local community!
Just some of the businesses I proud to use in my baking are Honey In The Hollow Bee Farm LLC, Small Valley Milling, Three Springs Fruit Farm, Chicano Sol and, of course, the local shops-Juniata River Commons and People's Provisions!

The holiday baking starts in earnest this week and I'm beginning with Chocolate Babka. If you haven’t tried a bread like this, you’re really in for a treat!

And one of last winter’s favorites, White Chocolate Cranberry Scones, are coming back this week!
