I’m Cathy, the face behind the site.I work in the corporate world as a project manager and as you can imagine, my job can be very stressful at times. Baking bread is a wonderful stress reliever. I especially enjoy baking bread on the weekends and allowing the dough to slow ferment to bring out the flavor and nutritional properties of the bread.
