About this Cook
I'm into fun, fitness and food. We grow a lot of our own food and have amazing resources for what we don't grow close by.
My favorite things to cook
I really enjoy baking and using sourdough starter. I made my own starter by capturing wild yeast. Food is my love language. I love cooking for my kids.
My cooking triumphs
My first loaf bread using only starter and no yeast.
My cooking tragedies
Seriously! Like most cooks too many to write about in only 1000 characters.

German Apple Cake I
I love this apple cake, it's truly moist and delicious. I like others altered it by reducing sugar to 1 1/2 cups oil to 3/4 cup, 1 whole egg and 2 egg whites, I added 1/2 cup applesauce to make up for oil and sugar that was taken out.

Sourdough Buckwheat Pancakes
Wow! And not in a good way, these were bland flavorless and gummy. I think the addition of white flour was unnecessary it just made the dough too thick and I had to add water. I make a really good sourdough pancake and was hopping to find a good variation but this recipe needs work in my opinion. I'll try some variations and review again.
