๐Ÿ’ฅStory time! A free Craigslist table, an idea, and a blind passion for something new.

Crazy to think 3 years ago I was tinkering around in a shared living room, on this table, with a jar of ill-kept starter, a few 5 # bags of flour, and A LOT of books.

When I created this page, it was solely meant to be a visual feed of my home-baking projects, some kind of outlet while I hustle as a cook. I baked for fun, to share some tight food with friends. I wanted to create a space to be black out loud and work on the craft. The thought of selling anything was "...maybe in a year?" And not a few days later, two wonderful journalists, .duncombe and , reached out to me about what I was doing in my home kitchen. The response from the Denver gang was insane! I still hustle as a cook, but now I find myself regularly pushing the limits of a home oven.

Over the next few weeks, I'll be moving, I'll be roommate-free, and the R&D games will truly begin! With the move, I'll be taking a brief hiatus to organize my personal life a little, and work on these new menu items.

Thank you for the continued support, and thanks for reading all that, come through Sunday at 's back patio/slice window 830 - 1130 am!

Pictured: 2 years ago my first ever attempt at the cinnamon roll you know and love, followed by what has happened, because I decided to f*ck around and find out.

I don't know who needs to read this, but for the love of all things good, find out. If you're passionate about something, find out if you love it. If it keeps you up at night, nagging you from the corner of your brain, find out. Take the idea from "yo that would be so dope..." to "yo this is so dope!"

You might suck at first, that's fine. Work on your craft because you love it, surround yourself with like-minded individuals, let the rest shake out, f*ck around and find out. โœŒ๐Ÿพ

Sending good vibes to all my fellow bakers working their buns off to feed us this holiday season! I'm taking the day off, working on some R&D, and finding out exactly how much green chili and tortillas one can consume. Is there a limit? Y'all get fat, be happy, hug someone you care about!

Smoky or sweet?

With the help of the good people at , I've been experimenting with brewers' grains in breadmaking. The aroma and caramelization of these grains (generally used in beer/whiskey) is unreal. Pictured: peat-moss smoked sourdough, and Canadian honey malt loaf.

Any brewers/distillers in the chat? I need to pick your grains!

These kids out here sayin' "yeet," I'm screamin' YEAST all day!

Boom! Just like that, my holiday orders are all out the door. Thank you to everyone for jump-starting B&D! It's been wonderful seeing old friends, familiar faces, and meeting new bread-lovers.

16 loaves of bread, 48 pretzels, 66 cinnamon rolls, 3 sheet cakes, 50 cookies, and 1 oven later. Heart is full, hands tired. Thank you, Denver โœŒ๐Ÿพ

Whoa. Again ๐Ÿ˜… Thank you everyone for the incredible response to the interview with ! It was a pleasure chatting with Kylie, and an honor to be featured in her series The Feed!

I'll level with all of you real quick: when I started this operation and created the Instagram account a few weeks ago, I expected it to take months to curate enough buzz for selling 10 loaves of bread in a week, maybe a few orders of pretzels and cinnamon rolls. I was dead wrong. The initial interest is blowing those numbers out of the water!

I created an early bird email list December 13th, and was sold out by the morning of December 15th for holiday baked goods! Unfortunately there was no time to go as public as I would have liked.

B&D is still in the passion project phase, and I'll be working over the next few weeks laying groundwork to expand the operation, while keeping the quality high. Between processing orders, customer communication, and production / fulfillment, I need to restructure. Right now it's just me, one oven, one bench, everything hand mixed, baking on my days off, I work full-time as a cook.

Orders are closed through the rest of the year! For those interested for ordering in 2021, DM me your email here, and I'll add you to the next round of newsletters!

Cheers and happy holidays! ๐Ÿ‘๐ŸพโœŒ๐Ÿพ

Real talk: is the best part of the pretzel the twisty part, or the handles/edges? Also, would you eat a pretzel that was ALL the twisty bit?
