Lissa! I'm so excited about this blog! Baking bread as well as knitting socks are my passions! I even had an outdoor woodburning bread oven built in our Vermont house! It has sort of turned into a pizza oven, but I still love making the pizza dough. I tried sourdough a few times. once with a starter I purchased and once I tried to make my own starter out of a bottle of beer some flour and a long sit on the counter. Both were great but I didn't feed the starters to keep them up and they eventually failed. This little blog will be a nice new inspiration to get into my bread baking again. Funny side story...when I gave it all up for a while I received a bread machine for Christmas....I guess it was a hint that my bread was missed :)

Congratulations on an inspirational website! I love all the details about your starter, and the science behind it helps to understand the whole process. All the best with future breadmaking, for both you and your kids!

About This Blog

  • I'm Melissa Wiley, a children's book author and home- educating mother of five. My kids and I are beginning breadbakers. We wanted an informal place to collect notes, recipes, and advice, a place to chronicle our successes and failures. That's what this space is for, and if you've ventured in for a peek, I most eagerly encourage you to jump into the discussion. We are novices, and we're hoping to learn a great deal from wiser and more experienced bakers. We have a zillion questions. This blog is our attempt to collect all the answers in one place.
