The Fruit Dilemma: Apricot Chocolate Pecan Bread

It’s been a minute since I’ve honored the name sake y’all. What’s a blog and business called The Bread and Breakfast without a regular post or two about bread every now and again? A silly one. That’s what. Clearly, I had to clean up that craziness this week.  I’m getting to that point in the …

Candy Jar Brownies: Spring Cleaning, During Summer

This year, I’ll be honest, I got to spring cleaning kind of late. Late, as in, I waited until the beginning of Summer to do it.
