As a way to get back to simplicity, I love to bake things the way our forefathers did. Somehow those old ways seem to have so much more flavor and I know just what is in it. Unlike all those things one buys in the store. I live with my wife and my two kids in a small S.W. Iowa town. We often go out camping or at least cook over a fire pit in the back yard with my cast iron cookware whenever we can. When it get's too cold I then cook in the fireplace. Most weekends I make a few loaves of sourdough bread. It doesn't stay around too long, and by the end of the week we seem to need to buy a loaf at the store.
