I’m sorry for the lag in posts–my last few weeks have been insane. Things are slowing down to normal, and I’m so grateful. 🙂

Nevertheless, I’ve baked some (if not all) of the recipes I hoped to try, and I’m excited to post them…soon!


Are there any sourdough recipes you would like to see on here? Or perhaps a recipe you’d like to share? I’d love to read them. 🙂


Sourdough: The Saga

(photo cred: Pinch My Salt @ flickr.com)

OK, so maybe not a “saga”. This series will really be more of a collection of my adventures baking with sourdough. I hope to include:

*Why Sourdough?

*Frugal Sourdough Sandwhich Bread (a French approach to an American staple)

*Quick n Easy Sourdough Pancakes

*Sourdough Biscuits

*Sourdough Pizza Dough

*And, further down the road, Sourdough Cake 🙂

(N.B.: All these recipes will be whole wheat sourdough.)


If you think of any baked good that you’d love to be made nourishing and easy to digest, please comment and let me know! I’d love to give it a whirl and include it here.

It’s that time again. Today, I leapt into a pantry of stale foods wondering what to do with them. The first (and most successful, I think) item I saved from the trash was a loaf of stale sourdough (with white flour, unfortunately, but it’s the first step in my family’s progression from commercial white bread to whole wheat sourdough). Thankfully the bread wasn’t moldy, so it could be used for something else–namely bread crumbs. (Croutons were actually the first thing that came to mind, but my family’s not big on them.)

With a new (and super nice) food processor in possession (a Christmas gift), the task of transforming the undesirable loaf of stale bread into delightful bread crumbs was a snap.

(Note: I didn’t season these…..at all. I figured we could season them as we wanted to for the recipe. Feel free to season with whatever you’d like, of course. :))
