A Note from Marcy November 2018

Dear Fellow Bakers and Friends, Welcome to the November 2018 Issue of Betterbaking.com! For a Canadian who hosts (primarily) American readers, I’m having my annual editorial déjà vu.

August 2018 A Note from Marcy

Dear Bakers and Friends, Welcome to the August 2018 Issue of Betterbaking.com! I always think July is seriously summer but this unusually hot August along with no a/c (it  bust) has me convinced that we’re still in the heart of it.
