Issue #42, Fall 2010


We have finished our summer at the Farmers Market, and now we’ve switched to our wintertime routine, where you can order the bread here on our website and we will bake your loaves for pickup on alternate Wednesdays. Please sign up for our email newsletters (see the sidebar on the left)! The newsletters will remind you when to order, and let you know what flavors of bread we’ll be baking .

After you order the bread, you can pick up your loaves on Wednesday evenings (4-6pm) at Over the Rainbow Toys on Huffman (next to the Huffman Post Office) or on Wednesday mornings (8-10am) downtown at Side Street Espresso (412 G Street).

Before we start baking for our wintertime schedule, we are taking a couple of weeks off to visit family. Then we’ll be back to bake bread for Wednesday, October 13!  If you order now, we’ll bake your bread for Wednesday, October 13th. If you sign up for the email newsletter, I’ll send a reminder to you on Thursday, October 7th.

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! 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.

If you’ve ordered bread before, but you are having trouble remembering your login name or password, you can email me .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address), or call me at 677-3712.

Our schedule will be a bit different from last winter—we’ll be baking about every other week, always skipping the first Wednesday of the month. The schedule will vary a little, though, to accommodate the holidays, to make sure you’ll have plenty of opportunities to order bread for gifts, if you need to.

Here’s what we’ll be baking the first few weeks:

pan loaves:  Alaskan baked potato, spent grain
hearth loaves: toasted seed, kalamata olive, fruited almond

20 OCTOBER 2010

27 OCTOBER 2010
pan loaves:  levain, spent grain
hearth loaves: fresh rosemary, Alaskan potato & chive, dark chocolate & cherry


13 NOVEMBER 2010
pan loaves:  Alaskan baked potato, spent grain
hearth loaves: toasted walnut, onion rye, fruited almond

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.

bread pickup locations

Pick-up locations for Wednesdays:
1.  Side Street Espresso, 412 G Street, downtown: 8-10am
2. Over the Rainbow Toys, 12201 Industry Way, D5, next to the Huffman Post Office: 4-6pm

If you need to call me during a pick-up time, you can reach me on my cell phone at 748-3712. At other times,  please call me at home/the bakery: 677-3712.

Would you like to see a video of us baking your bread? Our bakery is a small commercial kitchen attached to our house on the lower Anchorage Hillside.
