From oversized oatmeal raisin pecan cookies to sweet potato muffins, cinnamon swirl bread, and blue bayou smoothies, all of the food prepared every day by the Daily Harvest Bakery and Deli in Monroe and West Monroe, Louisiana, is as delectable as it is healthy. Bakery owner and author Teresa Gordon has developed all of her recipes with well-being and good nutrition in mind, using stone-ground whole wheat flour and honey instead of refined and processed flour and sugars.
Opened in 2004, the Daily Harvest Bakery and Deli was the result of a successful home-baking experiment. Inspired to start baking with all-natural grains and ingredients, Gordon began to make breads for her husband, children, and friends. The breads were passed around Gordon's neighborhood and soon landed in the hands of Gale Green, the woman who was to become Gordon's close friend and business partner. The two women began baking together on weekends, and before long, they started selling their breads and expanding their repertoire to include a variety of healthful breakfast foods, lunches, and desserts. Soon after, Gordon decided to take a risk and open Daily Harvest with Green's help. The two have never stopped baking together and the bakery has since been featured in Southern Living and Road Trips! Magazine, and was the recipient of the Northeast Louisiana Small Business award in 2006.
In this cheery and delicious collection, Gordon shares the secrets behind her bakery's signature breads, muffins, smoothies, sweets, and sandwiches. Promoting the benefits of whole wheat while celebrating the joys of truly tasty food, Gordon proves that healthful eating is as easy as pie--buttermilk pecan pie, that is. Accompanied by lighthearted anecdotes about the unique bakery and its employees, the recipes in this cookbook are certain to satisfy and delight everyone.
A native of Jonesboro-Hodge, Louisiana, Teresa Gordon worked in her home for twenty five years, raising her two children. After her daughter married and her son graduated from high school, she was motivated to learn how to make Ezekiel bread, which required her to mill her own grain. She bought a small mill and a twenty five-pound bag of grain and started baking. Her experiment was a resounding success, and she has since opened a second bakery. She appears regularly on television to give cooking demonstrations and has been a speaker for various business, church, and women's groups throughout Louisiana.From the Back Cover:
