Bacon, Smoked Gouda & Hatch Green Chile Sourdough

I really loved the combination of smoked gouda and green chile in my last loaf and I wanted to expand on the savoriness by adding some chopped bacon. The results did not disappoint! The smokiness from the cheese combined with the roasted and earthy notes from the green chile combine extremely well with the bacon….

Bread Flour + Spent Grain Sourdough

I wanted to have some more bread on hand and hadn’t made a loaf with spent grain in a while. I threw this one together on a whim and it turned out tasting really nice. Schedule Using the lazy sourdough method is actually quite simple. The real key to this method is that you can…

Roasted Bell Pepper + Sun Dried Tomato Sourdough

Cold weather = soup weather, which means using up a ton of bread for some soup dunking. We already blew through all the Paprika + Pepperjack sourdough I had baked last week and it was time to make something else that leaned more toward the savory side. I looked through the fridge for inspiration and…

Paprika + Pepperjack Sourdough

I’ve been devouring so much bread lately. Between garlic bread, soups and sandwiches, I can hardly keep bread more than a few days before I need to start planning my next bake. I like having some savory bread around since they’re awesome to dunk into soup. One that I really remembered loving in the past…

Pumpkin Shaped Pumpkin Sourdough

The Aspens are changing color and the nights are getting chilly which means Fall is here! In honor of Fall, I wanted to try my hand at making a pumpkin shaped loaf that had a hint of the flavors of a pumpkin pie. I ended up pretty impressed with my first try at this style…

Whole Wheat + Spent Grain Sourdough

My sourdough culture had been sitting, mostly neglected, at the back of my fridge for the last two months. I finally decided it had been long enough and pulled it out and fed it a few times earlier in the week and then baked this delicious double batch today. Whole wheat flour mixed with some…

Dark Rye + Spent Grain Sourdough

Monsoons finally hit here in Santa Fe which really helped cool the house down. I hadn’t baked bread recently because cranking the oven to nearly 500’F for almost 2 hours when it’s already 85’F in the kitchen just wasn’t appealing. I decided my first loaf back was going to be a hearty rye and spent…

5 Flour Sourdough

These ‘clear out the cabinet’ loaves came about after I was looking at all the random flours I had in my pantry. The five flours in this recipe are bread, whole wheat, rye, buckwheat and spent grain. These flours and flavors combined into a couple really nice loaves for sandwiches. Schedule Using the lazy sourdough…

Sourdough Pretzel Buns – Trial #1

After having a successful batch of pretzel buns with bakers yeast, I wanted to try making some with my sourdough culture. I made this recipe and method to fit my schedule and was fairly happy with this attempt, although there are definitely things to improve on. I scaled this recipe down to make 5 bratwurst…

Lazy Sourdough w/ Spent Grain

I was down to my last slice of Cheddar Cheese + Paprika bread and needed something else to have on hand. That loaf was awesome and savory, but not the best for sandwiches or toast. To make a better sandwich and toast loaf, I went back to the pantry and grabbed some spent grain flour…
