Another Season Closer

Once again I’ve read through another stack of books all with a farming and baking themed books this winter. The last of which I have to start is all about using horses for farm and field work. I might need to look over the ol’ Amazon wish list and see what’s next considering it’s the beginning of March, we’ve got 5 feet of snow… and we don’t have horses.Through all that reading I’ve found a few passages that will prove quite helpful in the wheat fields. I’m so excited. We’re one planting closer to WildFlower Farm landrace grains! This year...

Getting Over A Fear Of White Cake

I hated white cake, not eating it but making it for people. Since the very beginning it’s been a struggle. The last straw was when I was about 21, working long hours as a bakery owner. There was very little that was not made from scratch there. When I say “scratch” I mean measure the butter and flour and so on, I don’t mean open a box of mix and add an egg and some oil or bake the premade cookie dough.
