Inside this issue:
Beginner’s Breads I said the “last time” was the last time, but I’ve had enough requests for the Beginner’s Breads series that I’ve decided to offer it one more time. If you haven’t had it, now is your chance. The class meets four weeks in a row during the evening to tackle a different aspect of bread making. Over the four weeks we make biscuits, cinnamon rolls, dinner rolls, and loaf bread. Each week teaches you something entirely different in the science of bread.

one about the safety of their home. Most accidents occur at home and this can be your first step toward making a home as safe as possible. As always, feel free to share this or call us if you’d like additional
