Holy yum at those pumpkin & choco chip teacakes! Just outta curiosity- do the baked goods with pumpkin have less oil/butter? The only reason I would assume so is because of the inclusion of pumpkin, which tends to be a fat substitute in baking.


2 KathEats October 15, 2011 at 8:40 pm

Not really….I think it’s more there for flavor than anything else


3 Brittany October 15, 2011 at 1:33 pm

All of those pumpkin breads are making me drooool right now! You guys will definitely have a busy busy month:D


4 Lauren @ Oatmeal after Spinning October 15, 2011 at 1:33 pm

Ha! They beat me to it! I was planning on bringing you Flying Dog beers next weekend, since that’s our local brewery. Did they bring you the Fear (pumpkin) or the Harvest Ale (it’s hoppy!)?


5 KathEats October 15, 2011 at 8:41 pm

Ahhh you don’t have to!! But I think they brought both!?


6 Cait @ Beyond Bananas October 15, 2011 at 1:35 pm

That pumpkin swirl bread looks incredible. Love all of your specialties!


7 Jill October 15, 2011 at 1:56 pm

If I was closer to your bakery I would lived at your bakery. Everything looks so delicious! I would love to try the sandwich you had.


8 Julia H. @ The Petite Spiel October 15, 2011 at 1:57 pm

Whoah, the bakery is the place to be today! Bread party? Oh yes.


9 Averie @ Love Veggies and Yoga October 15, 2011 at 1:58 pm

The Savannah bars always look so good and so does Pumpkin Oh! Yes, oh my.

Have fun with Anne and glad you got to meet a few readers and stay really busy. Wins all the way around :)


10 Zoe @ loseweightandgainhealth October 15, 2011 at 1:59 pm

I wish I could come and visit your bakery. It looks so large and spacious and all of your baked products looks amazing. Today I would buy the pumpkin swirl :-)


11 Kelly @ Foodie Fiasco October 15, 2011 at 2:06 pm

14 Chloe (In Fine Feather) October 15, 2011 at 2:11 pm

That pesto-parmesan bread looks delicious, I might have to try & re-create it!


15 Lauren @ What Lauren Likes October 15, 2011 at 2:17 pm

Yeah for pumpkin craze!! Looks fab :)


16 Ashley @ My Food 'N' Fitness Diaries October 15, 2011 at 2:26 pm

We were just at the Great Harvest this morning by our house to pick up a couple loaves of bread. Mmmm I can’t get enough!! I LOVE the pumpkin chocolate chip bread!


17 Annette @ EnjoyYourHealthyLife October 15, 2011 at 2:48 pm

Oh those pumpkin treats/breads look super delicious! YUMM.


18 Sana October 15, 2011 at 2:54 pm

20 Katie @ Peace Love and Oats October 15, 2011 at 3:05 pm

That pesto parmesan looks amazing! That’s one of my favorite combos!


21 Cait's Plate October 15, 2011 at 3:05 pm

GAH! I want that pumpkin chocolate chip teacake!!

And I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE those types of days!! I’m glad to hear business is booming :)


22 Kristen October 15, 2011 at 3:16 pm

Hey Kath! I was able to stop by the shop earlier this month and have to say that I LOVED everything about Great Harvest! You weren’t there.. otherwise I *might* have introduced myself. It was just Matt and your super fun staff, so I got a little shy and thought it might be a little strange to introduce myself to Matt. I feel like I know him (like I know you – not really at all hah) through the blog, but didn’t muster the courage to say hey! Haha

Anyway – loved the recommendations from Matt.. I ordered the Monticello Garden (I think was the name) sandwich on.. shoot.. the bread with all the pumpkin seeds on top… anyway.. DELICIOUS! But NOW I want to come back and try that Pumpkin Chocolate Chip… YUM!


23 KathEats October 15, 2011 at 8:42 pm

Aw I’m so sorry I missed you!! You should’ve said hi to Matt -he’d be flattered :) Glad you had a great time!


24 Haley @ Fit, Young, and Fabulous October 15, 2011 at 3:19 pm

OH MAH GOSH. That bread looks SOOO fabulous! We have a Great Harvest near by. And I’m heading there ASAP!! Mmmm!


25 Sarena (The Non-Dairy Queen) October 15, 2011 at 3:36 pm

I’m so happy that the business is going well! You guys have worked so hard! Enjoy the rest of your weekend Kath!


26 Hillary October 15, 2011 at 3:48 pm

All of this pumpkin bread is such a tease!


27 Angel7 October 15, 2011 at 4:09 pm

You are actually glowing in the third picture–it must be a pumpkin glow from all the pumpkin you have been consuming :)


28 KathEats October 15, 2011 at 8:42 pm

:) Maybe so!


29 kathleen @ the daily crumb October 15, 2011 at 4:17 pm

have so much fun!

very envious of all that delicious pumpkin!!


30 Pat October 15, 2011 at 4:51 pm

I think I must be the only person who doesn’t like pumpkin choc chip. :). I like pumpkin, and chos chipd, just not together. I was i. The Anchorage GH (newly renovated) on Wed and I think all of the other customers bought pumpkin choc chip, plus slices were going fast as well. I did get 3 loaves of bread though. Gotta stock up as it’s 50 miles from home.


31 KathEats October 15, 2011 at 8:43 pm

Aww well it’s not for everyone


32 Gina @ Running to the Kitchen October 15, 2011 at 5:02 pm

Have fun! Say hi to Anne for me (we went to college together :))


33 Deva @ Deva by Definition October 15, 2011 at 5:16 pm

I am not sure what my closest GH is. I totally would love some savannah bars! They look heavenly.


34 Ashley @ Coffee Cake and Cardio October 15, 2011 at 5:29 pm

I love, love, love pumpkin chocolate chip bread… one of my favorites!


35 lynn @ the actor's diet October 15, 2011 at 6:02 pm

i think i know what i’m doing w all my chocolate bars soon – pumpkin chocolate loafs!


36 Molly @ RDexposed October 15, 2011 at 6:08 pm

Was Raging B*tch included in that variety? I was a wee bit offended when the boyfriend first offered me that beer. I knew it was the beer’s name but still….


37 KathEats October 15, 2011 at 8:43 pm

I’m not sure…upstairs!


38 Sarah October 15, 2011 at 6:15 pm

I love super busy days too! The day flies by and you end up feeling accomplished and kicking back and relaxing feels all that more awesome.

That picture of the pesto Parmesan bread just stole my heart.


39 [email protected] Flying ONION October 15, 2011 at 6:43 pm

That pesto parmesan bread has my name smothered all over it! 😀


40 [email protected] October 15, 2011 at 6:45 pm

Your bakery items look divine, seriously. So very cool to see your dream of running this bakery materialize on your blog every week. Wish I could grab your sandwich right off the screen.


41 Rebecca October 15, 2011 at 6:52 pm

Way to spread the pumpkin obsession 😉


42 Brittany October 15, 2011 at 6:54 pm

A Tall Tale :)

Once upon a time about 2 years ago I was having a girls weekend in Seattle, WA. It was on this weekend that one of my girlfriends was raving about your blog! At that time I wasnt really into reading blogs but ever since than I have been reading yours and quite hooked to the phenomenon of blogs :) There have been some days, weeks, etc..that have gone by where I have missed several posts but for the most part I have tuned in :) I believe it was your blog where I discovered the amazement of banana cooked in my oatmeal and the strange excitment of eating oatmeal from a jar of nearly gone PB. It was from your blog that I discovered two other blogs I absolutley love as well! DailyGarnish, EatLiveRun, and your blog have graced their presence on my computer several mornings with breakfast and right before bed. I love your girl’s style and it was just in the last couple of weeks that I even started commenting on what I was reading HAHA :) I had yet to comment on yours. So here’s to new beginnings of blog comments!

The End :)


43 Brittany October 15, 2011 at 6:56 pm

P.S. This was the same girlfriend that introduced me to Great Harvest bread :) Congratulations on your Great Harvest and new house adventures! And thank you for sharing via blog world :) I have been inspired :)


44 KathEats October 15, 2011 at 8:43 pm

Thanks for the story!!

48 Brittnie (A Joy Renewed) October 15, 2011 at 8:39 pm

Your photos of pumpkin bread and desserts makes me want to take a trip to your bakery today! So wish we had a Great Harvest in my city! I could go for a piece of that pumpkin chocolate chip bread right about now. :)


49 Erika - The Teenage Taste October 15, 2011 at 8:49 pm

Pesto Parmesan? Pumpkin Swirl? Loving these new bread varieties, Kath! :-)


50 Christine Bowers October 15, 2011 at 9:54 pm

I either need to have some Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Tea Cake shipped to Colorado or I need to figure out how to make it myself. Yummo!


51 Health Bee October 16, 2011 at 1:55 am

Congrats on the success of your business. The pumpkin loafs look delicious!


52 Sandy October 16, 2011 at 4:35 pm

My mouth is watering as I read and look at all of your pictures, I wish we had a Great Harvest w/n driving distance Portland Maine!!!


53 Christina October 18, 2011 at 3:41 pm
