I’ve been working off and on with my Brod and Taylor dough proofer as I put together my courses. I’ve added the new optional second shelf to extend my use of the proofer. I’ve used this proofer since it first came out in and was actually a beta tester for the company. I jumped right onboard and Continue reading Review for Brod and Taylor Dough Proofer
I’ve been asked for quite a while to show how to turn off the “auto turn off” and also how to use the baker’s percent key for the KD8000. I made two videos because the one I was going to make was just too long, so I split it in two.
In this video I unbox the new scale and show you how to use it and some of it’s features. I also show you how to program the “auto turn off” Continue reading Program the KD8000 Scale and Use the Baker’s Percent Key

I wanted to talk about baking tips and hacks.
People often ask me questions about baking and when I’m done talking to them, I realize that a list of baking hacks/tips would be great. Maybe you will put your favorite hacks in the comments and together maybe we can come up with another list. So far I’ve got:
I would like to give a shout out to a new web site! My friend and terrific baker, Barbara Elisi has a wonderful new bread site that you must check out. It is called Bread and Companatico.

I was asked to add a baguette formula and “how-to videos” to my new Udemy Course. It took me a few weeks to work out a formula I liked. I did four different iterations but was unhappy with the outcome until the last experiment. Then I hit pay dirt! The taste is beyond fantastic! Continue reading My Chubby Baguettes
I had a lot of fun coming up with this formula for 100% hydration 100% whole wheat sourdough bread. It was really easy actually. I used Bob’s Red Mill Organic Whole Wheat flour and made up a 100% hydration dough, enough to make two loaves. This was in response to a student in my class that asked for a whole wheat formula. Here is a video of the finished loaves: Continue reading 100% Whole Wheat Sourdough Bread at 100% Hydration
I couldn’t pass up sharing this post from Elite Daily. I’ve haven’t seen such wonderful sandwich porn in a very long time and not so many in one place!

Avocado, Asparagus and Dill Havarti Grilled Cheese
I am often asked where I get this piece of baking equipment or that one. I have done a few posts on singular items but no posts on an inclusive list of baking equipment I use or want to use.
These are mostly Amazon links and I am an affiliate. It won’t cost you anymore to use my links, but it will help me out. Also, if you pull any live link to your desktop and use it as an entry portal every time you use Amazon, I will be credited a small amount and lots of small amounts adds up to large amounts and then I can get my kids bigger clothes (they don’t seem to stop eating) 😉
Martha Hosier, my sweet, gentle mom left this earth today. I just want to post this to honor her memory. In this picture she was a young woman, she left behind 12 children, 54 grandchildren and her best friend and lover for almost 60 years (this October), my dad, Richard. She ultimately died of congestive heart failure.
Thank you to all of you who are my family and friends for your support and kindness.
