Hello from NJ
I am 55 yrs. old, female, happily married, have 1 son, dil, & grandson. I live in NJ and I have Lyme disease.
I am not a good cook in that I have to follow a recipe. I get real stressed about getting it right, most of this part of it is due to the affects Lyme disease has on my brain. I have never experimented, even though my hubby calls my making kombucha (poor thing hasn't been getting any attn.), kefir, and sourdough starter experimenting or mad science. haha
I am new to sourdough, 4 wks. I tried waffles 2 x's - fail. I made a delicious choc. cake. Today, was my 1st attempt at sourdough bread, the sponge was a fail. It had hooch in it in 3 hrs. time and I was checking from time to time. I think it is because I hadn't fed my starter in over 12 hrs. (my insomnia = messed up sleep, so it doesn't get fed in 12 hrs. sometimes).
If I can save my sponge and go on from there please, please let me know. I was so excited to finally get around to it.
