My Books

I love creating recipes for my own family and now in two books written with the beginner and intermediate baker in mind!


The feedback people have for my new book Celebrate with Bread Baking has been incredible as people are finding new recipes to celebrate, rediscovering cultural favorites, and having great results with my clear, detailed directions!

70 brand new recipes organized in five sections: Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter and Special Occasions. Of the 70, 22 are quick bread recipes (look for sourdough versions in my Recipes section!), 17 are direct dough using conventional yeast, and 31 recipes that use a starter and can be converted to sourdough if you use the timing conversion noted!

From people barely dipping their toe into baking (Doesn’t get easier than Beer Bread and Irish Soda Bread!) to intermediate bakers will find recipes to delight their friends and family on special occasions and holidays.

This book is unique because it also serves as a global bread passports introducing you to breads from around the world and including a wide variety of celebrations. Everyone is welcome to the table!

Some of my favorite recipes are:

  • Savory Scones
  • Grandma’s Blueberry Crumble Muffins
  • Mini Monkey Breads
  • Cinnamon-Sugar Pull-Apart Bread
  • Calzones
  • Vegetarian Bolani
  • Soft Herb Potato Rolls
