My grandma loved baking bread; she'd fill her small apartment kitchen with the scents of fresh wheat rolls or sourdough loaves. I do not have crystal clear memories of her, but my nose remembers - I smell bread baking and I see strong wrinkled hands kneading dough, remember the heat of the kitchen and the taste of a hot, fresh roll. Grandma also loved to bake anything that required as little sugar as possible (she also only offered sugar-free hard candies which, to my 9-yr-old sugar-loving self, was quite tragic). Over the holidays, my mom brought out one of my grandma's favorite recipes and we easily veganized it. We hope you'll enjoy it too! -Marji Beach, Education Coordinator
