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.
