Sourdough Semolina Flax Seed Boule – Home Made Bread is a lot easier than you think – This fiber rich bread is a delicious bread for sandwiches.



Yes homemade bread is not that difficult to put together, however, it is time consuming especially with sourdough varieties. However, it is so worth the effort. Do you have a starter ready?  If not, check this out if you need to start a Sourdough Starter from scratch or see here to wake up a dormant starter.

My starter is a multi grain that includes whole wheat and rye, but you can use your own sourdough starter that you have been maintaining.

Bread baking has become one of my favorite culinary pursuits. In fact, I recently was watching an episode of @TheTodayShow and  they were quoting the results of a survey about what leads to greater happiness. It wasn’t a lot of money or great professional success, but instead little things in life and one of the things that made the list was the smell of fresh baked bread. When the bread is in the oven baking and starts to perfume my whole apartment, a smile does come on my face subconsciously so I am not surprised by these results.
