    About a month ago, a lady gave me some wonderful sourdough starter. So far, I've made dinner rolls, loaves of bread, cinnamon rolls and pigs in a blanket with the starter.

    Anyone have suggestions on other foods to make using the starter?

    Duonyte, thanks for the ideas! I'll check out those recipes and thread suggestions.

    I found a recipe last year for a blackberry danish that used crescent rolls. I'm thinking about trying this recipe using the starter. Not sure how it will turn out, but I'm going to give it a shot.

    Hey Dreamgoddess, you are sprinting into sourdough land. Good for you.

    Sourdough and yeast can be used together improving flavor but without the long fermentation times. Here's a link to over 30 recipes here: http://www.food.com/recipe-finder/all/sourdough-bread?inclingre=2462&pn=2
    Note that shorter fermentation times means less flavor, but there are times when I need a faster recipe.

    A thicker starter can be used in recipes where a liquid starter would exclude using some wet ingredients. I modified my buttermilk biscuit recipe and found the sourdough starter really worked well with the buttermilk to enhance the flavor. A lot of recipes can be modified as long as the total weight of flour and the total weight of wet ingredients is the same. See: Easy, Tasty Sourdough Buttermilk Biscuits.
