How to Keep Sourdough Starter Alive

Make Your Own Sourdough Belgian Waffles

Waffles + Sourdough = Luxurious Breakfast! Belgian waffles are a delight. I love the deep crags filled with melting butter and warm syrup.

Special Occasion Sourdough Egg Bread

Make your own holiday sourdough bread. Every year around Easter-time I get the urge to make a rich, egg-filled bread. Some people make cakes, I make breads.

Sourdough Zucchini Bread

Excess zucchini plus sourdough starter equals a unique quick bread. Sometimes the garden fairy (you know, the tooth fairy’s sister!) brings us too many zucchini.
