Sourdough Banana Bread

We had a hot spell a week or so ago, which meant the bananas went from nice and yellow to black and over-ripe almost overnight. I also had been on a bit of a Kamut® flour kick, and had a nice bubbling Kamut® sourdough starter just waiting to be used. It was a perfect combination! […]

Sourdough Bagels

Sourdough Bagels

Between the holidays and my annual winter vacation (always in search of some warm sun!) I have taken a little sourdough break. It’s time to revive my neglected starter and start baking again. But in the meantime I wanted to share these sourdough bagels I made last month. The last time I made bagels from […]

Sourdough Pfefferneusse Cookies

Sourdough Pfefferneusse Cookies

 It’s interesting how many of our Christmas traditions originated in Germany. The Christmas tree, marzipan, and these delightfully spicy cookies known as “pepper nuts.” I am not a big cookie eater. In fact, I’ve been know to say that I could go the rest of my life without another cookie and be just fine. But […]

Sourdough Sunday - Buckwheat Crepes

Sourdough Sunday – Buckwheat Crepes

Crepes are easy to make and a good way to turn leftover  odds and ends into something a bit more elegant. Perfect for those nights you don’t really feel like cooking, but can’t bear the thought of another pizza slice.  The whole process is basically stir, sizzle, and fill. Note: This recipe has been moved […]

Sourdough Sunday - Stuffing Bread

Sourdough Sunday – Stuffing Bread

Although Thanksgiving was only 10 days ago, it seems like it’s been weeks. I have moved on mentally from fallen leaves, pumpkins, and spiced apples to the hot cocoa and peppermints of the Christmas season. But back when I was still planning the Thanksgiving menu, I came up with this stuffing bread recipe. And since […]

Sourdough Monday - Pumpkin Cranberry Scones

Sourdough Monday – Pumpkin Cranberry Scones

Do you love to create new recipes? I do, and find myself jotting down recipe notes on the backs on envelopes, scrap paper, and sticky notes. This usually isn’t a problem as they pile up in a corner of my counter, out of the way but easy to access. Until I go on a cleaning […]

Sourdough Saturday - Simple Kamut Round

Sourdough Saturday – Simple Kamut Round

Sometimes a simple country bread is just right. The other night I made a comfort food-friendly dinner of BBQ lentils, homemade macaroni and cheese with goat cheese and Romano, winter squash from the garden roasted with maple syrup, and green peas. (We needed something green and I no longer will serve the grandchildren a green […]

Sourdough Saturday - Walnut-Current Rolls

Sourdough Saturday – Walnut-Current Rolls

Last week’s Barm Brack reminded me just how much I love breads filled with raisins, currents, and other dried fruits. So this week it’s another sweet and savory dinnertime treat; a great combination of crunchy walnuts, sweet currents, and tangy rye. Recipe: 2 cups sourdough starter (find out how to make your own starter here) […]

Sourdough Sunday - Irish Halloween Bread, Barm Brack

Sourdough Sunday – Irish Halloween Bread, Barm Brack

Barm Brack is a fruit-full Irish bread traditionally used to tell fortunes at Halloween. Different items are baked into the bread; the person who gets the pea will not marry, the person who gets the stick will have an unhappy marriage, the person who gets a piece of cloth will live a life of poverty, […]

Sourdough Sunday - "Lazy Cook" Dumplings

Sourdough Sunday – “Lazy Cook” Dumplings

When the weather is cold, dim, and damp, I reach for the soup pot. And the only thing better than homemade soup, is homemade soup with dumplings. So in the midst of my October soup making frenzy, I started to research sourdough dumpling recipes – I have to do something with all this sourdough starter! […]
