I am honored to present a guest post by Sara Goodwin Brown, Great Harvest Burlington, VT owner and guest blogger.
I am frequently asked by customers at the counter, "Do you still eat the bread?" As if after all these years I would become immune to its charms. The answer is "Yes. Every day. And lots of it." My tastes have changed over time, I usually overlook the sweet breads for anything savory. Santa Fe Cornbread with melty cheese can really get my heart pumping. However, if there is Almond Babka on the board, and I can think of any reason that I might deserve a treat, I'll cut myself a slice.
A fat slice of warm Honey Whole Wheat or Dakota is my breakfast most mornings, and I time my lunch to coincide with the arrival of Farmer's White. There are few things in the bakery better than a hot heel of Farmer's White spread with butter.
Who am I to resist the siren call of the brownies? I have to walk past that pan dozens of times a day. I must have a chunk (or three) every afternoon with my cup of coffee. The brownies are my undoing. Every year I resolve to cut back on them, and every year about this time, I give up. In fact I think I need a fudgey little chunk right now.
