March Birthday Fun! Discounts and Giveaways!

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

New Baking Course – Extreme Fermentation

modified7

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

Program the KD8000 Scale and Use the Baker’s Percent Key

KD 8000 Baker's Scale

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

Reopening my Blog – So Grateful to All of You.

potatodec2

Hello everyone! As the new year draws to a close and a brand new year is just about to begin, I’ve decided to reopen my blog and continue on with my newest book, “100% Sourdough.”

The last several years have been devastating for me. I fled an abusive marriage which lasted 30 years. I thought things would get better and in some ways they did, but leaving an abusive person is the most difficult thing anyone can do (well in my opinion).
