Baking: Sourdough Bread

Greetings!  Remember back when I told you all about my final attempt at making a sourdough starter?  I never reported back about my progress...mostly because that attempt, like all the others, was a sad, sad failure.  Still, a few failures have never stopped a girl from trying.  So a few months later, I tried again and now I have a healthy whole-wheat sourdough starter.  Today, I baked my first loaf of sourdough bread.  Now that I've discovered how easy it…See More

"Beautiful pie!  I'm ashamed to say that I've never had apple pie with a slice of cheddar cheese, but I've heard so many great things it must be good.  Your crust turned out great!  I made an apple pie for the first time…"

Planting Garlic

We eat a lot of garlic around here.  So naturally, working with Jean & Leo of Blue Moon Farm at the farmers' market all season (garlic is their specialty!), made me want to plant my own this year.  A couple of weeks ago I bought 1.5 lbs of Music garlic - that translates to roughly 90 cloves.  Since then, I've been waiting for the wacky fall weather to coordinate some sun with my days off.  Today was beautiful - cool but sunny - perfect garlic…See More

Hi Geraldine!  Nice to meet you!  I'm still searching for my dream farm!  I've had lots of successes, and challenges, which you can read about on my blog (www.twoblueboots.blogspot.com).  

By the way, your sourdough starter sounds AMAZING.  I love the smell of warm baked bread in the winter.
