Melissa, You Are Awesome!!!! Have unsuccessfully tried sourdough before and I didn't believe I could do it. The previous failure had intimidated me. You were the missing ingredient!! Thank you! Sliced into yesterday's sourdough loaf. Tastes great and holds together well, tried with butter and peanut butter. Loved that I could feed it, mix it and have it ready for dinner if needed without added yeast!

Hi There, I'm Melissa!
AND JUST LIKE YOU, I'M FILLING A LOT OF DIFFERENT ROLES IN A DAY.
I'm a wife, mom and homesteader, but I'm also an author and a blogger, a product-creator and a small business owner with a demanding full-time job.
During the week (who are we kidding, all the days) life is busy, from work, livestock, running kids back and forth to turnout, keeping up with the laundry, let's just say ain't no one doing very much sitting around except maybe the dog.
I don't have time for recipes that don't turn out or to rebake a loaf of bread because it fell or didn't rise all the way and no one wants the dense as a rock sunken top loaf, can I get an amen?
But preservatives, GMO's, and hydrogenated oils aren't something I want my family eating from store bought baked goods and bread either. I found a way to make bread, biscuits, and pie crusts turn out perfectly every time, even when I'm busy.

“My very first sourdough loaf!! I'm so over the moon right now!! I can not thank you enough, Melissa! Your videos are so wonderful and thoughtfully crafted. I would not have been brave enough to try this before now, regardless of my longing for years to do it.
