Gluten-Free Bagels

March 21, 2018


Testing 2 different gluten free bagels.  The darker one on the left side is an enriched dough made with eggs, milk and oil.  The right side is a lean dough.  Will get back to you when the verdict comes in from my taste testers.  Or you will find out at the farmers market this year.

Advance Bread Baking Class With Master Baker Didier Rosada


Last minute decision to attend another class at San Francisco Baking Institute.  It was a tough week for me, I was just getting over a month long bout of the flu, bronchitis and sinus issues.  We were on the go for 5 days from 7 am until 4:30 pm most days.  Exhausted but joyful.  Excited to try the new recipes at home and bring some new breads to the farmers market this year.



King Arthur Mills

The third week of our vacation I attended the professional bread baking course at King Arthur Mills in Norwich Vermont.  I enjoyed learning and making new friends.  We were taught by Master Baker Jeffery Hamelman.  Can’t wait to share what I have learned, as bread baking is my passion and my journey.


What a beautiful place to be in the fall.  The view of fall colours were spectacular.  We stayed at the Norwich Inn and enjoyed Halloween in town.  The whole town gets involved with activities for the youngsters.  They start around 3:00 PM and finish by dark.  It really brought joy to my heart.



I have really neglected my site!

I am going to try and catch up.  New Year’s Resolution…….. I will try harder this year to post on my site, even though it is already February going into March.

The farmers markets ended Thanksgiving weekend.  We took a well deserved vacation right after we cleaned up and put everything to bed for the season.

We drove to Virginia Beach for one week, got some sun and read a couple of books.  The second week we were in Williamsburg and enjoyed the Colonial Village.  We also attended their wonderful farmers market.
