Since 2009, I’ve been baking something or other at least once a week. I make the bread that Kristin, Noah, Micah, and I eat. (Evan doesn’t eat much bread.) Whenever possible, I use wild yeast from our own yard–the sourdough method–rather than commercial yeast. I find making yummy breads and pastries from scratch to be incredibly satisfying, and I’m glad that our family is freer from commercially manufactured chemicals and additives.
