Bread baking fo me had always been a daunting chore. After discovering Wishful Kneads, baking bread is now an absolute joy. The Thornton's promote healthy eating with their selection of recipes, grains and cooking tools.. I've attended 2 years of Jan's classes and I'm always eager to return home to try new recipes. Attending classes at Wishful Kneads has gifted my family with an enhanced quality of life. P.S. Treat yourself to a Bosch-----you're worth it!!


"Wishful Kneads is a real asset to Coeur d'Alene! Owners, Rick and Jan are delightful and so friendly and welcoming. They sell wonderful kitchen equipment and related supplies, cookbooks, as well as a variety of healthy and nutritious flours and grains and lots of other food stuffs, and many gourmet items. Jan and Rick are also very knowledgeable about their products' health aspects, etc., and go out of their way to meet customers' needs. For me, the highlight of their specialty shop are their cooking classes of which they offer a large variety to choose from each month. If you want, you can buy all the ingredients right handy. The classes are fun and very informative. Not only do they provide a great setting, you also receive copies of all the recipes for that day's class, the food is fabulous, as well as nutritious (always plenty to share) and... where else can you go and only pay $5/class/person! Furthermore, once you get on their mailing list, they send you a card with two months' worth of classes so you always know, in advance, what is going to be offered so that you can plan accordingly. And, they are very open to suggestions, such as adding new subject matter or repeating popular classes, as well as offering special classes for your church, school or organization. The folks that Jan and Rick bring in to help with these cooking classes are also quite knowledgeable and helpful." Coeur d'Alene is privileged to have such a fine business in this area!" A very happy and satisfied customer...


Wishful Kneads takes care of all my needs. mixes,flourmills and all kinds of fun kitchen gadgets, grains beans and herbs. best of all fun and informative cooking classes with all kinds of great recipes. thank you rick & jan for all you do.

Wishful Kneads is a warm and inviting store offering a vast amount of knowledge and supplies. Taking classes with Jan and Rick have been great fun. Recently I took a class on sourdough breads, it was fantastic. I took my sourdough starter home, fed it, and then started in making sourdough bread. Yummmm!! My family loves it. Sourdough has such a wonderful rich flavor. And yes it is just as good with whole grain flours.


Jan and Rick have a wonderful store where the flour is ground right in front of you, or choose from many of the dried herbs or variety of dried beans and lentils. The grape seed oil is truly fantastic to cook with. Attend a cooking or baking class for new ideas or see all the Bosch items in the store. It's a great place and I love to send all my friends there!!

I highly recommend everyone to shop @ wishful kneads and sign up for a cooking class. This unique store offers educational classes with nutritional recipes and time saving ideas. The classes are for people of all ages in a fun family like atmosphere.
