Opened in 2004, the Daily Harvest Bakery in Monroe, Louisiana, produces hundreds of muffins, pastries, breads, cakes, and cookies each day, all made from fine whole grains milled on the bakery's premises. Without sacrificing any sweetness, these recipes use honey, unrefined cane sugar, and agave nectar instead of refined white sugar. From cakes to casseroles and breads to breakfast pastries, these treats are sure to be a delicious delight to all. Accompanied by charming anecdotes about the bakery and its employees, more than two hundred heart-healthy recipes fill the pages of this frank and friendly cookbook. From the carrot cake, studded with walnuts and pineapple, to the bakery's signature whole-wheat brownies and cranberry-pecan bread, each dish is made with all-natural, wholesome ingredients. Without any professional business or culinary experience, bakery owner and author Teresa Gordon started Daily Harvest because she had a passion for good food and good health. From its humble beginnings, the Cinderella-story bakery has met with incredible success and has been featured in Southern Living and Road Trip! Magazine and was the recipient of the Northeast Louisiana Small Business award in 2006. Now for the first time, Gordon reveals the secrets behind her heavenly breads and delectable goodies.
