I have a neighbor who has to eat gluten free so I told him I would play around with the gluten free flour available in the regular grocery stores. I did not use sourdough, I used commercial yeast and had to go buy some at the store. It was a it weird but I wanted to get a good loaf first and then experiment making it with sourdough later. So this is my first test:Continue reading
I glanced up and many in the audience were wiping tears from their eyes. I was astonished! It was my first book reading ( I read excerpts to the audience) and signing for my memoir and I was a bit nervous. I thought people might be fidgeting, wanting to go home. When I was finished the group gathered around peppering me with questions and then… most of them bought not just one copy but two or three copies of the book… to share with family or friends they thought might find help by reading it.
That’s when my heart began to sing. Continue reading
I’ve been having fun with some higher hydration loaves. This particular formula is easy because it uses up a lot of your sourdough starter and the high inoculation rate of starter in the dough is like a built in autolyse.

I was able to pick up some Teff flour on discount at the store. The flour is still fresh, so I think the store just wanted to discontinue it. Which means I’ll have to find it elsewhere when I need to purchase some more.
According to the internet, Teff is a seed not a grain and if that leaves you scratching your head, read here: Difference between Seeds and Grains. That is not the only article, just Google it for more information, it is quite fascinating actually.
Heck, I don’t know what I’m saying… knockout? But I knocked a ball out of the park with my first book signing for my memoir, “Reach for Joy” last night (people in the audience were crying as I read excerpts). I can’t give you a special price on my memoir because the publisher controls that (there will be a free e-book download available Nov 26, 27 and 28th), but I can give you a special price on my books and courses. So for this weekend my four volume book, “Discovering Sourdough” is on sale for 13.00.
Wow, just on the heels of our 10k celebration! I’ve worked hard for several months putting this new course together and I’ve had a lot of fun! This course is different than the others as it uses baking powder and baking soda along with sourdough to make old timey treats like cornbread, scones, biscuits, etc There is one skillet bread which uses only sourdough for leavening and it is a challenge loaf! I can’t wait to see your results!
My Facebook group, Perfect Sourdough has hit a milestone today! 10,000 followers! To celebrate, I am offering my sourdough baking courses for the lowest price ever at 9.00 each until Nov 1st 2015 or until the coupons run out. Join us at Perfect Sourdough
We are celebrating all week with postings of our lovely sourdough breads and discounts for those who wish to get into my Udemy courses or purchase my sourdough book.

I don’t have time to make a “pick me” video so I uploaded a modified promo video from one of my baking courses. If you wanted to go and “like” me, that would be super nice. Thanks!
Marc Isaacson kindly asked to interview me as his first guest on his new series “Weekly Inspiration for Success.”
For those of you who wish to catch the Blab interview on Youtube:
I made 50 coupons for each class at a super discount to go along with the interview. Once they run out, they’re gone:
