Sometimes life gets really hectic and overwhelming (yep I’m not going to sugar coat it). Baking bread is my form of meditation.😆
I’m in the midst of moving and painting my new house, but I will never give up on baking some fresh bread for my family! @cookinginheelss you get me?
Now back to choosing some paint colors bc @benjaminmoore only has 63827392 shades of grey! 😂😂 HELP!

Forgot to post my simple yet delicious lunch today. I like to plate my food even if it’s a simple egg toast because I eat with my eyes.
Sourdough toast, butter, arugula, cooked egg, everything bagel seasoning and of course a pinch of sumac.

Not to shabby for Taco Tuesday. Roasted eggplant with ground beef, salad, tehina and @mina Harissa.
Watch my stories to see how I made it.
Ps. I will save it in my highlights under easy dinner.

If you watched my stories today you saw how I prepared dinner in less then 10 minutes. Preparing healthy food doesn’t have to take long, the key is to always have fresh ingredients on hand and leftovers always help.😆 Arugula with meat patties, sautéed broccolini, roasted tomatoes, and marinated onions.

On Friday I pushed myself out of my comfort zone to try different scoring. I gotta say I’m pretty happy with the results.
I’m playing around with different formulas for my bread. Today’s formula; 60% white wheat 20% hard white whole wheat 20% hard red whole wheat 78% hydration 18 hr cold ferment.

Some beautiful sourdough accounts I follow for inspiration

How are you celebrating spring? Im on a rhubarb overload and playing around with a whole wheat sourdough galette dough. I’m obsessed with galettes you can never mess up because however you bake it you will always end up with a beautiful rustic looking pie.
Tbh it’s not yet perfect so I won’t share the recipe yet.
Ps. You can always use your favorite pie dough recipe and add a little of your sourdough discard.
For the filling I mixed strawberries, rhubarb, a little sugar, and lime zest. I spread a thin layer of corn starch before adding the fruit, this will absorb the liquid so it doesn’t run all over.

Attempted to make a 🌺 score on my bread in honor of shevous. This is how I prepare for shevous.
Chag Sameach to all my followers and friends!

My family are not big fans of a heavy dairy meal on shevous. Last year I served homemade gravlax, fresh vegetables and sourdough bread for the dairy meal and it was a huge hit so guess what’s going to be on my menu this year as well! Watch my stories to see how I made the gravlax. Recipe inspired by @naominachman, I added shredded beets to get the nice pink color.

Today was one of those days when I started to make supper I had no idea what I’m going to do. I had a whole chicken so I decided to spatchcock it (watch my stories how) and flavored it with fresh herbs, garlic and lime. Now this was a hit in my family, I will definitely add it to my menu rotation.
1 whole chicken
1 cp chopped parsley
8-10 cloves garlic
1 lime squeezed
1/4 cp olive oil
Salt and pepper
Red onion sliced
Sweet potato quarters
Mix the herbs with garlic, oil, lime. Season the chicken with salt and pepper, then smother the herb mixture all over the chicken and under the skin. Spread everything on a cookie sheet and bake uncovered on 400 for 1 hr 25 min.

Steak 🥩 for dinner just how we like it. I served it with kale, tomato confit, and @nocrumbsleft Marinated onions.
I seasoned the meat with salt and pepper and seared it on each side for about 3-4 min.
