Fun, Funny, and Informative - Totally Binge-Worthy!

I found Knead to Know a week ago and cannot stop listening! The conversation is both eclectic and genuine, all while providing loads of helpful baking advice, and usually a couple really good puns (listen closely!). This podcast will be my go-to when I need a quick pick-me-up and a smile :)

Episode 23 -Great rapport w/Sarah

Love the show and really enjoyed Ep. 23 with Gemma and Sarah. The flow of talk was very easy and natural, informative yet like listening to friends talking about baking. Great choice of fan questions with situations that are relevant to us all. Looking forward to more!

Steamed Puddings

Would love to hear or see some steamed pudding recipes using the Instant Pot! Such a great hands off steamer. I made a Christmas pudding last year it was delish! Melissa from Dexter, MI
