I have recently delved into bread making. There were a few hits and mostly misses at the start. When I mentioned to my dear family that we would be having homemade bread with dinner, the kids would roll their eyes and my husband would encourage me to “just relax” and he’d “pick up a loaf on the way home”. In case you can’t read through those line, he means “oh please, not again”. I remember one particular loaf of olive oil & sea salt that was so bad even the dog wouldn’t eat it. Who knew baking powder could expire? The good news is that I’m always learning and improving. Mostly I’ve picked up some great tips, tricks and secrets along the way. Here are nine secrets I’ve learned as well as a few great recipes to try.

They said I couldn't do it. My property is too small. There are too many land restrictions living in town. I have trouble sewing in a straight line and I set off the smoke detector when I boil water. Well you know what? I'm figuring it out. I currently have a flock of ducks, quail, and chickens, as well as four Nigerian Dwarf goats. Between our livestock and our gardens (over half our 1/4 acre is edibles), we produce most of our food. I may not be the poster child of a domestic goddess, but I am definitely a homesteader. Find out how I overcome challenges. I believe that everyone can be a homesteader, no matter where they live. Visit me at The 104 Homestead
