Have been doing some more baking than usual lately & recently made a really good organic wheat banana bread when I came across this subscription box. It was shipped out super fast and thoughtfully packaged. The instructions were clear, but I kinda went my own way when it came time to bake. I had my own loaf pan and instead of making 2 round, just baked the one loaf. Came out fantastic! the next day I made avocado toast with it

Not pictured is the cute 3D printed yellow juicer, because it is already living in my fruit bowl 😄
This is a great box for a lot of reasons, but getting a beautifully curated variety of very useful and lovely things in a box that also donates to food banks is nothing but win/win. Every item in here is something I enjoy. My book-reading, tea-drinking, always-snacking, sticker-collecting self was all smiles opening this box, and I would call that money well spent.

This is the most fun subscription box I have ever subscribed to! The "Bread Box" I received in the fall was a great experience. The bread baked was super yummy and the flour sourced was a really cool business. I am working my way through the book and it is great so far.
I cannot wait to receive the lemon box!
Thanks Bookmarks & Breadsticks!

I’ve gotten a quick response to my questions and the box itself was well packed with a great book choice and baking supplies. I love that this box also helps support small businesses and nonprofit groups.

I absolutely loved this collection. The selection of ingredients combined with a thoughtful book selection that tells the real stories behind the everyday food we eat made for a great buy. I know that when I get the next shipment, it'll be both surprising and help me learn how to improve my culinary skills with the right ingredients.

A wonderful selection! Beautifully and thoughtfully packed, but not at all wasteful in its packaging, this gorgeous box is full of little touches that make it feel like a gorgeous gift. Excellent value for the money, especially when you consider that it comes with a donation!

I loved this box and everything that came with it. I'm a terrible baker so having everything pre measured and laid out for me made making the bread a breeze. I also loved how personable the box was. Having the hand written note inside and the way everything was packaged made me feel like they really cared about the product and made me more excited to get started.
I have yet to dive into the book but just thumbing through it looked interesting. This has for sure gotten me motivated to start making more homemade bread.

I was so nervous when I tried to make my first loaf of bread and it was an utter failure! Having this kit really inspired me and I'm so so glad you're enjoying the kit too!

The subscription box is exactly what I expected and more! The book included in the box was very entertaining to read, even though food books are not typically my go-to genre. The quality of the flour was great and I loved the bread kit.
The hand-written note and the little food things were a great personal touch that I very much appreciated. I will definitely be ordering more of these boxes in the future!

I saw a review of this box on Instagram and had to get it. I knew exactly what I was getting but still excited to get a food book and bread baking ingredients. There was a handwritten note which was a nice touch and a little bag with two adorable pieces of toast. I don't know that they are useful but they are such a cute touch and I had to save them on my desk.
I've always loved food books and I've already bought a few that the curater posted on her Facebook page that she has read. There are so many book boxes out there but this one is really different. I'm excited to read the book, make some bread and look forward to the next box. I wish it was monthly instead of quarterly.
