The stress I was feeling today dissipated for a few minutes when I stopped in at the soft opening of a new bakery, Breads on Oak. I walked in to find a tatste-testing fiesta! Unfortunately, I was in a hurry -- I had only enough time to gobble up about eight different samples of amazing breads, muffins, and desserts, and no time to take pictures!
The owners are great people, the breads are fantastic, and you'd never guess the brownies are gluten-free and the muffins are sweetened with half stevia!
Go tomorrow -- you won't be sorry! I'll do a full write-up soon.
P.S. I put in a plug for croissants and pains au chocolat made with Earth Balance! Let them know if this would float your boat, too!
