My Dear Friend…

My dear friend, MC’s (of the blog, Farine) grandson, Noah has been murdered in the Sandy Hook massacre this morning. Please visit her site and offer words of condolences. So many of you know her and have benefited from her wonderful blog over the years. I met her at Kneading Conference West last year and had the pleasure of spending time with her at this year’s conference. This tragedy  has affected me deeply and I wish to show MC support.

Sour Seed Dough 40/100 and 60/100

You’re thinking, “Sour Seed Dough?” what is she up to now? Debra Wink gave me the idea of playing with the Boudin original recipe, which she sent me.
