for you friends

I wish so many of us lived closer together and are actually able to meet. I am sure we would all be the best of friends and if it were so, you would be one of three to receive a bag to make some Amish Friendship Bread...

Ben received the starter bag and instructions from a co-worker almost 10 days ago and today was the day to finally bake it. I must say it came out moist and tasty and I am glad that I get to have two loaves. Though, I am sure the nutritional content is not that great... loads of sugar and oil are not the most recommended thing, but it tastes oh so good! I am keeping another starter to attempt to make a "healthier" version of it in 10 days. I will use whole wheat flour, applesauce, and maybe splenda-mix to see how that turns out. I hope it turns out just as yummy, but I guess there is only one way to find out.

Well friends, have a happy weekend and enjoy what Spring is bringing you wherever you are...

p.s. If you are my friend and I am seeing you this weekend, expect a bag from me.


  1. We just got some of this too and it was so yummy! If your new recipe still makes it taste yummy I would love to know how you did it.

  2. oh my! this looks super good!

  3. mmm... the best part about homemade bread (besides the smell & taste, of course!) is that you can make little sculptures out of the doughy middle of each slice! :)

    ...at least, that's what I used to do when my mom made bread...

  4. Yum, I love friendship bread! I just found your blog via those gorgeous scrap necklaces. I am sooooo excited to get on this project. I love the colors you used and how beautiful they look against the white tee. Just beautiful! I'd love to link to that post if you don't mind!

  5. rachel- of course you could link to that post!!! thanks for asking!

  6. I have some in my freezer! It is very good -- in fact, so good I'm afraid it can't be all that healthy for us, especially at the rate we consume it!

  7. 3rd day.... can't wait for the 10th day!!!


    soooooo good to see you and the fam the other day!! soo happy!!!

  8. ellen's on day 3? I "mushed" for day 1! ... boo. I'd like to return the friendship bread.
