Free Online Classics ~ Sourdough

What's Schoolin'?

 Here is a website with free clipart. I was looking for images of Texas explorers and discovered this treasure.

Free online books: great for literature studies, reading or re-reading the classics, or just for fun.  They have kindle versions so you can upload these classics for free:


Cultured Applesauce:

There are some good recipe's at Jen's weekly menu (lara bars, liver pate, and more):

What's Cookin'?

I finally got my sourdough culture going and made a triple batch yesterday (enough for 6 loaves).  I baked 3 loaves, 1 batch of rolls (just divided and shaped into rolls - placed far apart on parchment paper on a pizza pan), 1 batch of 'hot dog' or sandwich rolls (rolled into shape and put side by side in a 9x9 greased pan), and 1 batch of something like a cinnamon twist for Sunday breakfast today (added 6 tablespoons rapadura, 2 teaspoons cinnamon and several shakes of ground cloves; rolled snakes, rolled those in powdered sugar (from rapadura), and twisted it back on itself.  I put these in a greased glass baking dish).  I baked all of these at 350F for 30 minutes; rotated; and baked for about 15 more minutes.

If you have a basic bread recipe that you like, I hope this inspires you to branch out and be creative with it!

I am using my Desem Whole Grain Sourdough Starter from Cultures for Health.  I'm still feeling my way regarding a schedule so I can put it up for a week.  I found that an empty gallon pail from Tropical Traditions coconut oil makes a great bread bucket :).

~ There are a bunch of awesome Real Food sales going on!  These are good until June 1st:

I can't decide on the kids or teens version of the Real Food Nutrition and Health book.  I plan on using it as a "structured" course for health and nutrition for dc.  They are on sale for $14.95 which is a decent price for homeschooling/teaching materials.
