Baking Knowledge 101!

I have only just started listening to this podcast but wow, it is wonderful! I am an avid baker myself and I love all the tips and information I am gaining from this show. What a great source of baking knowledge! 🧁🍪🍩🥖🥨🥐🧈

Spray Butter

I don’t recall a spray “butter “, but I do remember and have used spray I can’t believe it’s not better. This was part of the South Beach diet and it greatly reduced the amount of butter you used in your meal, keeping it to a minimum. Looking back at it now, I can’t imagine the number of chemicals that were in it. Thank you!

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 :)
