Sourdough Bread – By Bread Alone…

Sourdough Bread
One of my goals is to reduce the amount of processed and mass produced foods my family eats. I’ve been setting things up on our little homestead with that in mind. And to a lesser degree, we’re producing the ingredients at home as well.  You’ll be amazed at how easy it is to make much of the [...]

For over 50 years, the Ruger 10/22 has been America's favorite .22 rifle.
