An Ancient Tradition

Simple ingredients: Flour, water, salt, and possibly yeast. Bring them together with varying degrees of pressure, time, and heat and you have created a traditional staple of life celebrated around the world - homemade bread.

The smell of baking bread triggers warm memories of yesterday and creates new ones today. It brings us together to share our stories, memories, and experiences around a common space. Life magnified through nourishment and community.

Be inspired to bake your own homemade bread for your upcoming celebrations with these books:

Homemade Goodies

I used to buy popcorn in microwave bags. One day, I became nostalgic and bought kernels for stove popping instead. That's how I learned I like homemade popcorn better. It tasted better. I could add my own ingredients. And it was cheaper.

I started wondering what other foods are easy to make and less costly than their ready-made counterparts. I quickly learned that peanut butter can be made in only ten minutes with only three ingredients. And, again, it was tastier and cheaper than its store-bought equivalent. I wanted to find even more items I could make, so I searched for a few books at the library and came up with three good guides.

National Bake & Decorate Month

Every October, food crafting company Wilton Enterprises celebrates National Bake and Decorate Month. This holiday acknowledges the art of baking and decorating. With Halloween just around the corner (not to mention Thanksgiving and Christmas!), now is the time to take advantage of all those neat seasonal ingredients and work some magic in the kitchen.

Do you have any dietary sensitivities or restrictions? You can try alternative baking methods!

Here are some baking and decorating books that we have checked in at the Fairbanks Library:
