It's been waaaaaaaaay too long since I've shared something sweet to my faithful readers and since today was the last day of school for my kids, I figured today was better than ever!

Was I celebrating?

I'm not really sure.  Because let's face it, I now have three kids under the roof all day every day.  All prayers, coffee, chocolate and spa certificates can be sent my way.  I hope that I can keep them entertained enough, I hope that I can keep up with all my work with them underfoot, I hope that we all still like each other come August.

I love summer, I just love it more when it's all mine.  Selfish?  For sure!  To battle this, I hope to start my days with early morning walks {to clear the mind}, once-a-week coffee dates, date nights with the hubs....and the smartest thing I've done since I've become a Mom, scheduling a babysitter once every two weeks JUST FOR ME.

I'm going to use those full days with a sitter in hand to get all the things DONE.  Blog work {mostly} and occasional errands {groceries}.  A full day where I'll bust my butt to check things off the list and plop down on the couch that night in utter exhaustion.

Sounds tantilizing, right?

On those days I'll get to make super delicious treats, like this Strawberries & Cream Pull-a-Part Bread.

Have you stopped drooling yet?  I made this for the last day of school, let everyone sample and then promptly delivered the rest to my friend's work {office gals always love a good treat}.

This summer I'm excited to be a Brand Advocate for Kalona SuperNatural.  This company has long been a dear friend of mine {I toured their production facility a few years back} and they are located just a mear 30 miles from my home.

Since 2005, Kalona SuperNatural has been making and distributing delicious organic dairy products to families all over the country.  When the founder and owner Bill Evans put down his roots in Kalona, Iowa, his family quickly became part of a community that is largely comprised of Amish and Mennonite farmers.

The most unique aspect of Kalona SuperNatural is that they truly are grassroots.  They know EACH and EVERY farmer they work with - they know their families, their land and are devoted to their superior product.

Their organic products include milk, cottage cheese, sour cream, yogurt, butter, whipping cream, Greek yogurt, half & half and kefir.

For this recipe I used their milk and butter.  Butter!  One of God's greatest gifts.  Milk!  I've been drinking it since I was a babe and forever will.

Their dairy is so rich and perfect.  Their milk comes from small, sustainable farms with an average of just 35 cows.  Their cows diets range from fresh pasture grasses in early summer to clover in mid-summer.  The most surprising food choice in the Fall?  They love turnips!  

During the winter when the ground is FROZEN here in the Midwest, they eat stored forage {typically grown on the farm} or other organic foods like roasted soybeans {for protein}, corn {for energy}, barley, hay, silage or wheat.

Needless to say, they eat well.

No doubt, their milk and butter made this breakfast treat PERFECTION.  I layered each divided biscuit with a sweet cream cheese and strawberry jam, stacked them up all, baked till golden brown, then drizzled with a sweet, creamy icing and topped with fresh strawberries.

Whew.

Did you catch all of that?

If not, go back, read that again...I just described heaven on a plate.  Or heaven between your fingers, because whose kidding, you pick apart this bread by the slice and shove it in your mouth.

This pull-a-part bread is ideal for weekend breakfasts, bridal showers, Sunday brunches, dessert after dinner, however you want to eat it.

Prehaps in the closet hiding from your kids on the first day of summer break?

Just me?

Regardless it's fantastic.  One slice and I was converted.  All breakfasts from here on out will never compare.  Do yourself a favor, grab some Kalona SuperNatural milk and butter and make this for yourself!
