I just returned from a week of traveling by plane and then by car across the Arizona Desert (twice) in 118F weather! This instructor felt BAKED!
I was able to visit with my (87 years young) dad on the coast of California (80F! Yay!) and some of my children and grandchildren.
Now I am ready to get back to fun (not work!) and start baking again. I have some sourdough starter going for bread, pizza and brownies! More of my children and grandchildren will be arriving today and we will be picking blueberries tomorrow. Thank goodness coastal Washington doesn’t reach 118F!
For the rest of the month you can have more fun baking too! My online sourdough baking courses will be discounted until August 1st. All of the courses are discounted to $14.99 except the 101 course which is discounted to $9.99.
Here are links to the courses, check out the links and see what each course includes and start having fun baking! Continue reading

Hello everyone! Every March I do some fun promos for my birthday week. This year I am turning 59! It’s been eight years now since I escaped abuse. With your support and help my two youngest and I were able to get into a decent home over a year ago. Living at home with me are my 20 year old son with autism and my youngest child, who now attends college and high school at the same time (running start). Life has been good!
For March Birthday Fun I will be having all of my online baking courses at discount for only $13.99 until the end of March plus contests, discounts and giveaways!Continue reading

Hello everyone! I’ve finally finished my #10th online sourdough bread baking course which is called, “More Fun With Sourdough Bread Baking.” It took me 10 months! I had several obstacles this past year which made it difficult to finish the course. I moved. Yay, I moved! It’s wonderful being in my new place but moving is also stressful and most of all, you can’t find ANYTHING! 🙂
This is the downstairs garage “kitchen” where I used to live:Continue reading
It’s that time of year when lots of folks around the world are baking. We are heading into spring in this hemisphere and on the other side of the world they are heading into fall. Often in the summer many people give up baking for a while, so during summer half the world isn’t as interested in baking as when it’s cold (although we still have to eat!). It is more fun to fire up your oven when it’s cool. It makes the house seem “homey” and inviting.
Which gets me to the matter I wanted to talk about in this post, “sweet” and “sour” sourdough. Many bakers are still after the elusive, “How do I get my sourdough more sour?” Continue reading
Hello Everyone! I’ve launched a new online baking course called, “Extreme Fermentation – Bake Modified Gluten Sourdough Bread.” The method was inspired by Yohan Ferrant’s method of low inoculation, extreme fermentation at high hydration.
For the course, I used a moderate high hydration to make the dough easier to handle. The course covers the low inoculation method of extreme fermentation with very little handling of the dough. I also show how to modify the dough so you can make “sour” sourdough or mild sourdough using the same dough.Continue reading
