August 2017 A Note from Marcy

Beautiful Peach Nectarine Crumble Bars, a great way to start off your baking for August.  Check out all the recipes in this month's issue of

 Dear Bakers and Friends,

Welcome to the August Issue of Despite the warm, lazy summer weather, I’ve been busy putting the final touches on the new Biscotti Cookbook.  The biscotti cookbook will be in print and e-book and available via Amazon et al. Fingers crossed - it should be ready by September.

I've also been baking new treats and getting my Instagram account activated again so please follow me there for great bits on recipes I'm baking and products I'm reviewing.

I’ve also been publishing on and you’ll find one of my features, A Love Letter from a Boomer to a Millennial at

Other than that, I attended StartUp Festival in Montreal where I mixed and chatted with acres of amazingly smart, positive, industrious entrepreneurs. Ironically, despite it being a tech start up conference, the theme of the event was Luck, as in, do you believe in luck? Is luck without hard work possible? Are some people just naturally luckier than others? It got me thinking. For instance, do recipes turn out better for positive people? Find out with this month’s free recipes and some tasty new ones.

Warm wishes and happy baking,

Orange Poppy Seed Biscotti
These are just amazingly light and crisp and perfect for a summer’s day.

Peach Nectarine Crumble Bars

Refreshing pastry bars that make the most of the peach and nectarine harvest.

Blueberry Honey-Dipped Scones
Gorgeous vanilla scones dotted with the sweet ooze of hand-picked blueberries and blackberries and a honey glaze to keep them fresh for days.

Double Garlic Twisty Cheesy Bread  Over 5600 Downloads FREE
This along with a salad is a banquet.

Incredible Cinnamon Chip Cake
This is just the most superlative cake I've created in awhile. If I say this is good -trust me - it's excellent! It makes an outstanding 9 by 13 inch coffee cake but you can also make it in a spring form pan. It’s high, moist and delectable to the last crumb.
