What if I told you that you could have the same tastiness of the sourdough English muffin but with even less effort? Truly! I worked for about six minutes to get a delicious and beautifully-risen loaf of bread. No it’s-just-too-sour, or it’s-kind-of-like-a-brick-but-we’ll-still-eat-it. Enjoy and join my victory dance as we enjoy slice after slice of nourishing, whole grain, sourdough goodness — fresh from our very own ovens. [by Erin Vander Lugt]

We’ve enjoyed this tasty cobbler filled with low bush cranberries from the patch down the road, last years frozen rhubarb from the plants next to the driveway, frozen blackberries from the store for something a little different, frozen raspberries from last summer’s harvest, and blueberries off the mountains lovingly picked and frozen by my mountain-climbing husband. Delicious! [by Erin Vander Lugt]
Who has given up a favorite cereal for the sake of trying to live an unprocessed life? If you’ve ever been a Grape Nuts lover, this cereal is so spot-on, I will be surprised if it doesn’t bring you back. After my first bite, I went back in time to standing in my college dorm room finishing up a little breakfast before starting my day of classes. [by Erin Vander Lugt]
Wool blankets, cozy slippers, candles, and pumpkin all walk hand in hand when autumn rolls around up here in the north. Days might be labeled gray, cold, and miserable by some, but when you have a long winter season fast approaching, we think it’s best to take a cue from the leaves and keep our speech beautiful. A rainy and dreary day becomes a cozy candle kind of day perfect for warm drinks and pumpkin muffins. Isn’t so much of life colored by our perspective? Keep things cozy this fall and winter with creative colorful words and tasty nourishing pumpkins treats! [by Erin Vander Lugt]
Back in the day, my dad had a certain supper specialty he’d lovingly whip up for me, my sister, and my mom. Hot dogs wrapped in a certain store bought crescent dough. Is anyone else out there nodding their head, sharing a similar memory? Classic, right?! Well, this recipe is my nod to those sweet memories, as well as to the satisfying smiles that come from an even tastier and healthier sourdough version.
