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
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
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.

Kneading Conference West (Sept 13, 14 and 15) 2012 was a terrific success. I had the privilege of attending for the second year in a row and I am really glad I did. The Kneading Conference is held in the beautiful Skagit Valley in Mt Vernon, Wa at Washington State University Research and Extension Center. The conference filled up quickly and had a waiting list again this year as the attendance is limited (you might wasn’t to sign up early for next year, BBGA will have information or you can find it at: Kneading Conference West. I met up with my baker friends MC of Farine and Breadsong and Floyd from The Fresh Loaf (I did not get his picture!). It was a great start to the conference.Continue reading
March 5, marks the second anniversary of my escaping an abusive situation. Each March 5, I light a candle, let it burn all day long and ask others to do so as well – to remember those who have lived with and suffered (are still suffering) or died from abuse.
Brod and Taylor sent several of us online blogging bakers their new Folding Bread Proofer. I was one of them. My Technical Administrator on the Sourdough Forum and I were talking about jerry rigging our own proofer before I received notice from Brod and Taylor about testing their new proofer.
