I'm working on creating a menu of what I'd like to sell in the bakery on a daily basis. Some things are so easy, like donuts. Definitely have to have donuts, but what else? I'm looking online for ideas, but I can see that there are no hard and fast rules. Each bakery is different.

I know that I'd like to sell bread, but haven't figured out what kinds. Some places sell certain types of breads on certain days. I like the idea, then you only make certain loaves each day.

What do you think are must have items? Things you would expect to be able to purchase if you walked into your favorite bakery. I'm kind of at a loss and would love some ideas.

New Beginnings

I watched Julie and Julia over the weekend and I became inspired. No, I'm not going to cook my way through a cookbook, but I did decide that I should blog more about baking than I have in the past.

I have a goal to open a bakery. I know that the economy is rough and that I live in a very small town but I know that it will work.

I still have many skills to work on, so I thought I would use this blog to share my success and to beg for help when I fail. Tips from others would be greatly appreciated.

One day I will be the proud owner of a bakery, but for now, it's time to perfect the craft.
