Harvest & Honey | Local Artisan



 

A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to photograph Jennifer Kent, a local baker and friend who is known NOT ONLY for her beautifully crafted macarons, cakes, cronuts (yeah, you heard me say: perfectly layered, deep-fried-heavenly-croissant-turned-donut) and various (UNBELIEVABLY GOOD) bread loafs - but for her unmistakable hospitality and kindness. 

Her brand, Harvest & Honey was established in 2013 and has provided detailed, hand-crafted desserts for numerous weddings, events and friends since it's beginning.

At the bottom of this post she has provided recipes for her incredible Banana Bread as well as her Lemon Blueberry Loaf. Both of these are perfect to make ahead for a grab and go breakfast, or just to sit and enjoy ALL BY YOURSELF because you sincerely will not want to share. With anyone.
