    please check out my blog for a new event hope you would like

  2. Will send my entry soon..Happy hosting..

  3. Omg...I have been trying to make sourdough for years, I dont know how may different recipes I have used, but Ill see what I can do this month.
    Does anyone have a really really good recipe for a starter, I have tried so many already... :(

  4. Thanks everyone.

    I have been working with king arthur flour recipe. And it seems to work just fine. I keep the starter in the refrigerator and feed it every week but if I kept it at room temperature, it would be even better. Recipe is on their website.

  5. being a starter in baking, really donno wat sourdough means... pizzas come in this category??

  6. Hasna,
    Pizza does not come under the category of sourdough unless you use sourdough starter to make pizza. I have put up couple of bread baking posts. Check it out and one of them is exclusively on sourdough. If you use a preferment or sponge wherein you mix water, flour and tiny bit of yeast and let it ferment overnight and then use that to make any baked good, it qualifies for the event.

  7. I love it!!! I'll send my entry shortly!!!

    Happy hosting!!

  8. Oh, great theme! I actually have a sourdough starter just beginning so it's perfect timing. =)

  9. Love the theme. Just send my second bread to you.
    Thank you for hosting.
