Sourdough doesn’t have to be intimidating or require scientific calculations! I’m sharing all my tips on the lazy girls’ guide to sourdough. Easy, doable, fun and delicious!

Quick note: in case you didn’t hear the buzz, Mel’s Hoodie Shop opened earlier this week! The response has been AMAZING! I just restocked some quantities of the popular hoodie that sold out in a day, and there are several cute aprons in the shop, too. Stay tuned for lots of other fun, new things to come over the next few months! You can sign up for shop updates here or follow on Instagram. Thank you so much for your excitement and support!
