Homemade quick breads from Turtles Kitchen in East Jordan.

Todd Zawistowski

An enterprising woman began baking her bread loaves deep in the woods of East Jordan for a fundraiser and just never stopped. With the name Turtles Kitchen, Laurie Wakeham and her daughter, April, have taken their fragrant homemade loaves of apple, banana, zucchini, pumpkin and her secret recipe carrot-spice bread on the road. Find them (and their homemade jams and jellies) at local farm markets: Boyne City Wednesday and Saturday; East Jordan Thursday mornings; Gaylord on Wednesday and Saturday; Bellaire on Friday; and Grayling Thursday afternoon. Have a crew coming up for the summer holiday? Wakeham does special orders. 231-536-2636.
