Extended Ferment Sourdough Tortillas

Hot water is the secret to great tortillas. Now that I’ve piqued your curiosity I will go on…

I have a member in my family that has issues with wheat. The individual has a skin condition made worse by consuming wheat products. However, the longer fermented sourdough baked goods don’t seem to be a problem. So I thought I’d modify my original tortilla recipe (one of the most popular posts on my blog ever since it was published) for my family member. See the original formula here: READ MORE »

Okay so I did something amazing this morning. I made up a formula for pancakes that will be my go to formula from now on. My son asked me to name them after him and my daughter, who won’t eat pancakes, helped herself to a full plate after tasting a bite. She said, “How did you make these taste so good?” READ MORE »

Cinnamon Rolls, Pita Pockets, Pizza dough, Soft White Bread, Rolls….

San Juan Island area is a beautiful place to live. The locals are very friendly, it has been fun to meet new people. I attended a transportation meeting to see about road safety and bike trails. I joined a prayer group from the church I attend and I was able to help out at the local soup kitchen this week and bring some of my bread.

Sourdough Sweet Potato Muffins

Sweet Potato Muffins

Sweet Potato Muffins

 

It’s that time of year where baking of squash, sweet potaoes (and/or yams) and other such autumn treats are pretty standard fare, especially around Thanksgiving. This recipe features leftover baked sweet potatoes baked up into muffins. You can substitute any veggie with a similar texture such as those mentioned above. I like using up my extra starter instead of tossing it whenever I can and these yummy tender treats will help you do just that.

This class was sponsored by the Shoalwater Bay Tribe. They are very helpful and active in our local community.  We are lucky to have them as neighbors here in Tokeland.
