I came across this great baker and bakery in Savannah, Georgia. I’ve never been there, just read about it, but can’t wait to go! Here’s a cute video of the owners, Cheryl and her husband Griff talking about their new book.
What I love about them is that they are trying to bring back baking from scratch. I love baking from scratch but have to admit that sometimes the idea makes me tired. I know that baking brownies from scratch is not that many more steps than a box mix. It means I have to get out my flour, cocoa powder, sugar, baking soda/powder. But hey, is that so hard? I think the bigger question is simplifying our lives and slowing down so we don’t feel so pressed for time. The bakery is called “back in the day” perhaps like a time when people had more time to sit on the porch, talk and bake from scratch. I’m all for that slow living idea. I hereby vow to slow down and bake more from scratch. 🙂
