Happy International Women’s Day! Make this awesome bread for the amazing woman of your choice. Seriously. Doesn’t even need to be someone you know. Just bake and deliver. Bread pretty much says, “You are awesome” all by itself.
Fresh cranberries soaked in rum, rolled in cane sugar, and baked in a bread laden with flaxseed. Really, really yummy bread. And yes, of course I drank the rum. And no, I’m not a lush. And possibly, I might be fibbing… but not about the bread.
Mom made this Stollen every Christmas and the thought of it brings back a torrent of wonderful memories. It looks like it may be heavy or hard, but actually it is light and sweet with chewy bits and icing drizzle and all sorts of magical goodness.

Anise Lemon pee-KAHN Bread. Not PEE-can. As my Mom, a proper Southern Belle, used to say to her New England friends… a PEE-can is what you put under your bed at night. Silly Yankees.

Za’atar is a condiment made from a combination of dried herbs such as ground dried thyme, oregano, and marjoram mixed with toasted sesame seeds, salt, and other spices such as sumac. A complex and savory loaf. Much like the baker himself.
