Issue #27


Welcome to our bakery website! If you’ve ordered before, just log in (see the sidebar at the left) and then click on “order bread” or “bread menu” and select the breads you’d like.

If you’ve never ordered bread through the website, you’ll click on the “register now” link, pick a username and password, and enter your information (name, email, and phone numbers). Then you can place your order!

If you’d like a weekly email reminder to order bread, and to know about the bread flavors we’ll be baking, sign up for my weekly bakery bulletin (see the sidebar on the left). Below, you’ll find a list of breads available for order this week, for pickup next Wednesday.

You’ll also find a recipe at the end of the newsletter—for a great breakfast with Rise & Shine Bakery bread! 

In case you can’t make the website work, you can always email me at: .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address), or call me at 677-3712.

the bread ordering deadline

You’ll need to order your bread by MIDNIGHT on Sunday, so we have time to plan our bake, feed our sourdough, and pre-ferment the dough!  When you order the bread, you can choose to “pay when you pick up your bread,” or you can pay via PayPal. By all means, use PayPal if you prefer—but I’m even happier to get your checks or cash when you come pick up your bread.

It’s the only year-round program featuring local Alaskan produce! Would you like to pick up a box of beautiful and economical local vegetables when you need produce? Subscribers to our CSA program aren’t limited to our short farmers’ market season to get Alaskan produce; we’re loading boxes year-round! During the winter, local produce includes cabbages, carrots, potatoes, onions, beets, and turnips. To add variety to these nourishing and savory staples, we add all sorts of vegetables and fruits from certified organic farms Outside. Each box also contains a newsletter loaded with my delicious, healthy recipes tailored to the week’s vegetables. [$35/box]

You can sign up for a box once a week, twice a month, or more sporadically—you choose the dates! You pre-pay for your box, then pick it up at one of several locations in Anchorage, Eagle River, or the Valley. Please visit our website for more information!

featured bread this week

recipe of the week


breakfast toast with almond butter and fresh fruit

This is hardly a recipe, but since I eat this for breakfast just about every day, I want to make sure you know about this idea! It makes such a great breakfast, and the whole wheat toast really sticks with you. It’s also great for a mid-afternoon snack!

I often bring this with me for a snack when I’m selling the bread (although I don’t bring a toaster, so I just spread the nut butter on bread), and I have gotten so many questions about “what is THAT you’re eating?” that I thought it was time to start proselytizing about my favorite food. No great surprise that it includes BREAD!

thick slices of whole wheat sourdough bread
almond butter (or peanut butter, if you prefer)
fresh fruit in season: apples and pears is what I’m eating now, but try peaches and plums, or even raspberries, in the summertime!
honey (optional)

Toast the bread, and spread with your choice of nut butter. Cover the nut butter with slices of apples or pears. If your fruit is tart (for example, raspberries), you can drizzle honey over the top. Enjoy with a mug of hot tea or coffee!
