Aries (March 21-April 20)
You’re strong and independent with a penchant for making others feel young, wild, and free. Because of your fearless nature, you’re not afraid to take a risk and change things up a bit. Enthusiastic and bold, Aries are a lot like jalapeño bread. Just like the hot peppers you’ll need to make it, you keep life spicy.
Taurus (April 21-May 20)
You have a penchant for all things exotic and romantic, and aren’t afraid to be indulgent when the occasion calls. A chewy, delicious bagel is a great match for a Taurus. With endless options, you can be savory, sweet, hearty, and oh-so-delicious. Pair it with your favorite cream cheese or make it into the stacked and loaded breakfast sandwich that's perfect for you.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
Cheerful and spontaneous, Geminis are witty and like to keep friends and family on their toes. You love the unexpected, just like this chocolate croissant (also known as pain au chocolat). At first glance, it may seem like your standard flaky pastry. One bite in, and surprise! The perfect amount of rich, sweet filling adds a delightful layer that will keep you coming back for more.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
Charming, mysterious Cancer, you have a huge heart and just love to love. What says love better than chocolate? Equal parts satisfying and sweet, just like you, chocolate bread is a wonderful item to bake and give to a loved one — because being generous makes you happy, too.
Leo (July 23-August 22)
You’re the life of the party, Leo. Creative and adventurous, you’re also brave and bold, kicking things up a notch and keeping things spicy. Your cosmic partner can be found in naan. This Leo-loving bread is delicious paired with your favorite curry or used as a sandwich base for an exciting creation.
Virgo (August 23-September 22)
You’re all about the classics, Virgo. Known for being timeless and witty, you’re also a bit of a perfectionist. Something simple, classic, and slightly sweet pleases your palate the most. Your perfect pairing? Delicious Hawaiian rolls. Consider adding a fun topping or spread for delightful little sliders. But just like you, these buns are wonderful in their simple and natural state.
Libra (September 23-October 22)
Libras are social butterflies who can’t pass up a great party or special occasion, and with special occasions come great food. You love the seasonal changes that come with fall and have a penchant for fall flavors, so freshly baked cornbread suits you nicely. Butter it up and enjoy with a hearty soup or stew, or serve it alongside a special holiday meal with family and friends.
Scorpio (October 23-November 21)
Scorpio, you’re deep and alluring in nature and tend to keep things quiet and low-key. So instead of something complicated and over-the-top, a simple, no-frills sourdough speaks to you. It’s easy and straightforward to make, rises quickly, and is the perfect medium for a classic sandwich like a BLT.
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21)
Fun and festive Sagittarius doesn't hold back when it comes to celebrations. A playful bread best suits you, like a twisty, toasty pretzel. Salted or unsalted, dipped, sugar and cinnamon-coated, pretzels can be sweet, saucy, or savory (just like you).
Capricorn (December 22-January 19)
Nobody is more creative, stubborn, or strategic than you are, Capricorn. Ambitious, hard-working and determined, you take things seriously and don’t shy away from a challenge. For these reasons, it’s written in the stars that you pair with zucchini bread — a recipe that requires a labor of love. A mix of wholesome ingredients and lots of zesty flavor, zucchini bread reflects all your best qualities.
Aquarius (January 20-February 18)
Aquarians are sentimental, kindhearted, and open-minded. You love nostalgia and hold your fondest memories close to heart, so traditional Italian bread is your "spirit bread." It’s simple and classic, and delicious dipped in your favorite soup, or simply buttered and paired with a hearty dish.
Pisces (February 19-March 20)
Imaginative, sensitive, and ethereal Pisces, your sign is ruled by the fishes in the sea, so it’s only appropriate your bread be one best eaten by the sea. Traditional focaccia comes from Tuscany, off the coast of the Tyrrhenian Sea. Enjoy this hearty Italian bread someplace warm and sunny (with fresh fish).
