In the Kitchen-
|My sourdough starter|
I have an almost eight year old starter that I caught in the wilds of Kentucky and have been tending to it every since.I call it my "creature" and it lives in the refrigerator. Great Whole Grains Bread has been reliable for a good use of my sourdough starter. It has a great recipe for sourdough pancakes, so it helps me keep the starter fresh and alive wit weekly use! I've also been on a hunt for good recipes to use with our whole wheat bread flour that we grow on the farm. My favorite recipe thus far has been a digestive cookie or biscuit that reminds me of the British McVitties digestive cookies. I did not coat them in chocolate (yet), but did make the recipe with only whole wheat flour, and the consistency was great. Not too sweet, and just crunchy enough to be dangerous (as I want to eat too many of them!).
In case you didn't catch it on Facebook, here are some photos I took of the interior of a dish I decorated recently:
