Eat Your Heart Out

I really didn't follow up when I introduced you to Sparky.  Remember, Sparky is sourdough starter my wife got back in 2011 from King Arthur Flour. 

Since then she's been baking her little heart out, I thought I'd show you a few photos to get your Saturday morning salivary glands flowing. The baguettes below were taken to my sons house for Christmas lunch.

A loaf of Harvest Grain Sourdough bread

Harvest Grain Sourdough
Plain old sourdough bread.

Regular Sourdough
Not made from Sparky, but Vanilla Raspberry Scones. Notice there are a few missing? They were really, really good and glazed too.

Vanilla Raspberry Scones
Now that I've been evil on this slightly soggy Saturday morning in Northern California, I'll let you get back to what you were doing.

Till next time.



  1. Too bad I live so far away, otherwise, there would be more than a few missing!

  2. Mark
    It is a good thing I don't live closer, I would be over at your house quite often begging bread from you. I know it is beyond good.

  3. I had one of these things once. It was a blast and so good.

  4. Tasty, thanks for the follow up. Home made bread will always remind me of home

  5. I can be there in about 18.2 hours if I drive straight through.

  6. That's great. Sourdough baguettes, and raspberry scones, favorites of mine.

  7. Hey Mark, All that bread looks great! Those scones definitely had me jealous! BTW, I'm blogging about fishing at a new site now: As the expert, please check it out and tell me what you think! Thanks!

  8. I'm thinking a road trip might be in order...if I leave about 5:00 a.m., I could be there for some fresh scones and sourdough to go!

  9. That stuff looks good Mark! We're snowed in right now and I'd love to have a loaf of warm sourdough and a tray of those scones :(

  10. LOL , I'm handy with the microwave too , in case Mrs. Shoreman and the Post Office are feeling especially generous :)

  11. Those looks delish. Let me know if you need my address;)
