Episode 160: Easy to Bake Bread

Today, we walk through something we have never really discussed on the podcast: Easy to Bake Bread via a process I learned from Geraldine Duncan – one of my early in life influencers and inspirers – the lady who showed me not to fear taking on big tasks in the kitchen. 

We will also walk through some homestead hijinks as this week has been crazy and when it is crazy on the homestead, your animals can sense something is up and I SWEAR they become crazy themselves. Or spring is in the air – either way.
