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.

Yea, I know, I know, walking where? How do you walk sourdough? Well I just needed a name for my bread and I was going on a walk so that’s what I named it. I should have called it “Quick get some dough ready, we’re out of bread.”
I fed my starter in the morning, was out of bread, wouldn’t be able to bake early the next day, but wanted to start some dough that I could bake as soon as I could get to it. So I made up this dough:Continue reading

Wow, just on the heels of our 10k celebration! I’ve worked hard for several months putting this new course together and I’ve had a lot of fun! This course is different than the others as it uses baking powder and baking soda along with sourdough to make old timey treats like cornbread, scones, biscuits, etc There is one skillet bread which uses only sourdough for leavening and it is a challenge loaf! I can’t wait to see your results!

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
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
