I've mentioned before in a previous post how wonderful it is when Chef Roland is baking bread at home, especially in the fall and winter. The smell is incredible and really makes things so cozy at home when it's chilly outside. I was amazed the first time I watched how he started his bread by soaking pieces of a grannysmith apple he had sliced up. I've found some fun links that will help you to develop your skills at making your own sourdough starter and bread for the upcoming fall season.
When Roland and I met, I was one of those people who opened the box or can and warmed up the family meal. After our marriage in 2005, I truely began to appreciate what food is really about, not only that it can taste very good, and be nutritious, but that it can be a celebration of who you are and the people that you share it with.
