Monday – let’s get moving

Best practices to begin the week with motivation: Morning rise and shine routines Plan some fresh air Plan the day with positive intentions Today was a beautiful day to get outside; a balmy 20C. The morning fell into place according to my regular routines. I’m so glad that these routines or habits are so in […]

Morning moments

Some random thoughts as the week begins.

In the kitchen with Doll – update

Fresh sour dough bread, starter, and dried starter. I love baking bread 🥖 especially sour dough. There’s nothing quick about this bread. Patience is the word of the day.

We’ve enjoyed the bread with butter, peanut butter, sunflower butter, whipped cream cheese, Nutella, and jam. Well, not all at the same time but definitely some great combinations. For Lent I will be […]

And then there were 20

No, I’m not speaking about rabbits, although that could have been the case a couple of years ago. During my journal time yesterday I outlined fully what the steps are in my morning routine; my start my day (SMD). I wrote these in order and was surprised that I had 20 steps, 20 things that […]

It’s got a name!

I finally got around to naming my sour dough starter. Blessing2 is white flour only. I’ve been tweaking recipes and techniques since last fall and have finally created a product I like. Here’s what I’ve learned: Patience. I cannot rush a good bread. Time is needed to bulk ferment and to rest. A baneton basket […]
