Emilie Raffa  Author of Artisan Sourdough Made Simple. I teach beginner’s how to bake sourdough bread! Get started here 👇🏻

Current addiction: hummus, cucumbers, tomatoes and kale-basil pesto on sourdough bread with toasted sunflower seeds 😍 I’ll be making a batch of this bright, flavorful pesto tomorrow afternoon at @goldenearthworm farm! Come see me CSA friends! Happy Friday! 🍅🥒#csalove #goldenearthworm #veggiesandwich

When I crave something light and quick, this is it: whole wheat tortilla pizzas with prosciutto and arugula 😋. They are very simple to prepare and healthy too. I make them with all kinds of toppings (spinach and feta w/mozz and no sauce is also a fave). This is our dinner tonight! What are you making? #easyweeknightdinner

Warm, homemade blueberry muffins on deck because it’s STILL raining outside AND I’ve finished work early for the day 🙌🏻 🙋🏻‍♀️This is a @gwynethpaltrow recipe, which I’ve been using for years (google it- so good!). I use salted butter instead of unsalted, and sprinkle cinnamon sugar on top. Try it! #kingarthurflour #homemadewithlove

I’ve been working on the most delicious soft rolls to make ahead and freeze for sandwiches. The recipe is almost there (still trying to perfect that squishy crust!)👌🏻 I think you’re really going to like it! Also, huge thanks for all of your sweet, thoughtful, funny, (and totally honest) comments on my last post. I guess 3 is the magic number. Bring it on! 💫 #sourdoughrolls #realbread

I have news! And I’ve been dying to tell you all about it! There’s another bun in the oven and this time it’s not sourdough! 😉 The newest member of our family will be joining us in September (is there a handbook for having 3 kids?!)! Happy Mother’s Day, everyone 💘#gratefulheart

Friends! What are you making for Mother’s Day this weekend? May I suggest this Baked Camembert Wreath? Just think: Warm melted cheese! With crusty bread for DUNKING! All you need is a glass of wine (and a babysitter 🤪) and you’re all set! It’s a good one to share with friends, too. Recipe in Artisan Sourdough Made Simple. #kingarthurflour #sourdough

We’re back from South Africa and I’m baking bread like an old lady instead of doing laundry 😩. Oh, how I’ve missed my starter!!! I’ve posted a few pics of the process in stories if you’d like to take a look! {And thanks for the scoring inspo @minskitchen 😘}#everydaysourdough #artisansourdoughmadesimple #realbread

This is the baguette of my DREAMS! 😭 We're currently in South Africa, and we visited @iledepain bakery 3 days in a row now (it's that good). AND! I got to see how the bread was made (hopefully you saw it on stories yesterday 👀). If you're ever in the Knysna area, please do yourself a favor: order the bread board, slather a slice in creamy butter and sweet apricot jam, and savor how truly delicious real bread should taste. What a treat! PS: have you tried making homemade baguettes before? #sourdough #baguettes

P I Z Z A! 💫 Using sourdough focaccia to make pizza is one of my favorite weeknight hacks! Just let the dough rise overnight and bake the next day w/ your favorite toppings. 😍This one is smothered in fragrant basil pesto, fontina, parm, and lots of chili flakes {it was a favorite when testing recipes for the book}! 🧀Recipe in Artisan Sourdough Made Simple, friends! #f52green #pestobread #sourdoughpizza

I'm back from Australia and totally jet lagged 😩. But! I really missed my starter and couldn't wait to begin baking again (sourdough does that to you 😬). So, I'm making sourdough brioche this weekend- I'll make the dough tonight and then finish in the morning- as vessels for sandwiches and THE BEST buttery French toast. Because really, that's exactly what I need after a long vacation... MORE butter! 🙌🏻 You can find the recipe in my book! So yummy. #artisansourdoughmadesimple #sourdough #brioche

Friends! I'm currently in Sydney, Australia exploring this beautiful country. It's absolutely stunning here and the food is 👌🏻 This is a decadent yogurt bowl with nutty granola, the sweetest berries, and my current fave: passionfruit. I could literally eat this everyday! 😍 Follow along on stories for more adventures! #granolabowl #sydneyeats @thelittlekitchencoogee

One of the most intimidating aspects of sourdough baking is understanding its key element... the starter! I've just posted a comprehensive (ahem, long 🙈) troubleshooting guide that will help you on your way. It's on the blog now (theclevercarrot.com) Enjoy! #sourdough #wildyeast #sourdoughstarter
