Keepin' it Kind Holiday Cookie Swap! coconut pecan chocolate caramel squares

Happy Holiday's !!
Let me tell you, I'm so excited to share this recipe at Keepin' it Kind for Kristy's annual cookie swap, thank you Kristy for having me !

  I look forward to this cookie swap ever year; amazing vegan cookie goodness all in one spot, what's not to love?

 I also love that eating cookies for breakfast this time of year is totally socially acceptable....which I have definitely been taking advantage of this week, especially after making a batch of these cookie bars!  So head on over to  Keepin' it Kind for the recipe!

anadama bread

Anadama Bread // SMBP
When I was probably around 10 or so there was an amazing bakery located in a building that my Uncle owned, it was about a 10 minute walk or so to the bakery from our House. I remember the Baker/Owner was younger, had a wonky eye and always had on his floured covered white bakers apron when he greeted us. 
The one thing that stands out in this memory was his Anadama Bread- my Mom and I would make special trips to the Bakery just for a loaf of his Anadama. The bread was incredible and to this day nothing compares. My Anadama comes close, but its not the original from my Childhood memories.
