What Are You Baking This Summer?

Hello Everyone!

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.

Here are links to the courses, check out the links and see what each course includes and start having fun baking! 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
