My friend gave me some Sourdough Starter and I was so excited because I have always wanted to try making Sourdough crust, while it was challenging and a long process I was pleasantly surprised it turned out so well. One of the frustrations I faced was the dough didn’t rise as high as it was suppose to but that was due to our temperature not being warm enough inside the house, so I transferred it outside and let it sit in the sun and Boom it popped up like a airbag! I’m Looking forward to making Sourdough waffles per my friends recipe and some English Muffins!

This was my first time I attempted to make some homemade Bread. I had ran out of bread yesterday and had one pack of yeast in the pantry, While browsing through Pinterest I could not find any recipes that allowed one packet of yeast they all required two, just as I was ready to give up I came across one www.tasteofhome.com/article/bread-baking-guide/
I used Half Wheat Flour & half White and it turned out amazing, I was actually surprised that it tasted so good & the texture was fluffy and not dense. My husband and Son devoured a loaf within a half hour span which put a smile on my face because that told me they loved it.
We always have an abundance of Zucchini every year and I’m always trying to find different recipes to incorporate it into. So far this bread has been the one everyone seems to love.
"Isabella Flora" A Costume and vintage Lover, Artist and Pianist, A women of many talents. I had the honor to take a peek into Isabella's Huge walk in closet and felt like I had stepped right into a vintage Boutique surrounded by beautiful hats, vintage clothes and accessories of many colors, textures and eras, Hyperventilating and wishing I had packed a defibrillator, OH, wait a minute it gets better later on as we were playing in the closet picking out outfits for her photo shoot she said go ahead and pick out a hat any hat you like and we will wear them. so of course this is when I had 911 on speed dial because I love hats too. I turned around and there it was "saying pick me pick me" I quickly pulled out a white wide brimmed straw hat with a black and white Polk a dotted band with a bow on it. Isabella served us raspberry and blueberry parfait in pretty cut glass crystal cups as we talked over ideas for her photo shoot. The shoot ended up taking place at my home in the forest in the early golden hour with three different outfits. Picking one out of the three I chose my favorite the Vintage/Gypsy inspired and Styled by Isabella herself. I love the Black & White look and flowers are always going to be my top choice! Thankful for this day to just be silly and creative.
These water painted cards were created by "Isabella" herself and given to me before I left her home.

My son took me to “Danny’s Barbecue” first time to eat there, it’s a cool Texan BBQ Joint, Apparently it’s been in Silverdale for a few years now, I didn’t even know it existed, it’s kind of hidden & tucked off to the side going out the back way of Silverdale Way heading towards Poulsbo Wa. Let me tell ya friends “My OH My” sink your teeth into some of their Texan babyback Short Ribs, The meat is moist and just falls right off the bone, So Delicious you’ll start boot Skootin!
We sat outside and enjoyed the sun, our meals and caught some time talking with & watching the Chef cook out of the Giant smoker. Check out their Menu it’s small but Mighty, they cater as well so if your lookin to do a big hoe down, Danny’s is your place.
My son has previously eaten there before and said “The Bomb” Is Down right mouthwatering Good! I’ll have to try it next time. Visit their website for location http://silverdalebbq.com/
