Schlabach's Bakery

Life Lesson
Something I've learned from my dear parents, Brad and Mamie Tilsch: Travelling means finding the best food an area has to offer and buying lots of it.


Yesterday morning (after our YMCA workout, of course) Mom, Dad and I drove out to Schlabach's Bakery in Guthrie, Ky.; a Mennonite store offering amazing pecan rolls and other delightful ways to counteract a morning YMCA workout.


Which angel food cake did we buy for my dad's birthday? They had plain, lemon, strawberry and chocolate chip.

Hi Rachel!
I didn't know Matt was Mennonite. He probably grew up with lots of good food, huh? ;o)

I didn't see either funny cake or whoopie pies...You must describe! I wonder if those are regional dishes. The Mennonites down here are very similar to Amish... the use electricity, but they don't drive cars etc.
