Bread Alone

Love to bake? If time allows, make a loaf of bread for guests to sample together; Cowie selected symbolic ingredients: salt (for commitment), pepper (for protection), cardamom (for love), and caraway (for good health). If kneading dough isn't your thing, ask a talented friend or your wedding cake baker to do the honors
