Buttery Sourdough Crackers

Perhaps it’s just my kids, but I can’t keep snacks in the house. It is seriously crazy, but I bring little snacks in here and by the time I go to dole them out, they’re gone already. If I bought them from the store, I’d go broke in a month. If I made my own, […] Read more…

These sourdough tortillas are PERFECT! So delicious!! |

One Year Ago: ~Your Questions: Pigs in the Pasture~     I have spent years searching high and low for a tortilla recipe so we might occasionally enjoy tortillas with a recognizable list of ingredients and that maybe didn’t stick to your teeth. Eventually, I put a few together and played with my fats and […] Read more…


~Basic Sourdough Muffins {4 Ways}~

| In the Kitchen, recipes, sourdough


One Year Ago: ~Week 42~  Since firing up a new batch of sourdough starter, I’ve been trying to add sourdough quick bread into our breakfast menu. Muffins obviously bake up faster than bread so my batter is going into muffin tins and baking for 20 minutes rather than a loaf and baking for an hour. One […] Read more…

I think it’s high time I compiled another “Gleanings” post, don’t you? It’s been a couple months and we have a lot of catching up to do! I’ve been meaning to lately so yesterday I put together the whole post, wrote some witty comments as captions for the images, and was going over it before […] Read more…

Pumpkin Nut Sourdough Muffins |

Got extra sourdough starter? Before you throw it out, why don’t you give this recipe a try? These tasty muffins are much healthier than the Pumpkin Apple Muffins I typically have served up for my family, so, in addition to the wonderful flavor, moist texture, and nutty crunch, I appreciate the clear conscience. This recipe […] Read more…

Today I’m sharing the recipe for a sourdough bread that we will be using for a dinner bread. This bread has great dipping qualities for sauces and soups and the mild sourness makes a nice compliment to a savory winter meal. In the summer, I’m certain that it will be the carrier for my tomato […] Read more…

I think that capturing my own wild yeast out of the air is one of the most empowering, “self-sufficinent” things I’ve been able to do! It is incredibly satisfying providing my family with their daily bread without being dependent on supermarkets to provide the leavening agent! I’ll be sharing some sourdough recipes here over the […] Read more…

Perhaps you’ve noticed that I never posted the new thing I attempted to learn in October, to cable knit a sweater. Perhaps not. I’m still plugging away on that one, but didn’t want to get behind so I pursued the new skill I set out to learn in November regardless- to bake a beautiful loaf […] Read more…

That’s what Ben says when he accomplishes something really big.Like using a fork. Or giving his baby sister her binky. That’s what I say when I take a bit of flour, mix it with a bit if water, and let it get stinky for a week. Throw in some additional ingredients and bake bread. The accomplishment was […] Read more…

| food preservation, Girls in the Kitchen, In the Kitchen, kitchen disasters, sourdough


I’m participating in a challenge called Preserve The Bounty hosted by Nourished Kitchen. It seemed appropriate and like a really great starting point for me to kick my scratch-cooking up a notch by delving into the realm of “real foods” to do the preserving I’m undertaking anyway more traditionally. Like it was done back in the day […] Read more…
