Why did you name your blog Sourdough Sunday?
Sourdough Sunday is named after a family tradition of eating sourdough waffles every Sunday. My great-grandfather, a sheep herder in Idaho, got our start from fellow sheep herders in the Rocky Mountains when he was only 15 years old. We still use his sourdough start in my family. Luckily we have spread it throughout my aunts and uncles on my mother’s side to preserve the start just in case one of ours dies. Our entire family eats sourdough waffles. Sunday’s are just not the same without delicious sourdough waffles after church.
What do you mean blogging isn’t your entire life?
You heard me right! I actually have a life! Surprise. Haha just kidding. I love blogging but I do have a lot of other things in my life. I am a student at Brigham Young University. I am a
sophomore junior (oh my goodness wait
how am I so old) I’m studying Family and Consumer Science Education,
affectionately known as FACS Ed by people like me who don’t want to say that
forever long title multiple times every single day. What is FACS Ed you wonder?
Well, it used to be called Home Economics… So pretty much I want to be that
super cute cooking and sewing teacher we all love (and appreciate for the easy
classes). I have a passion for all things family, and I cannot wait to graduate
and teach young students how to sew, cook, dress fashionably and take care of
I (as you’ve probably noticed) love to cook, sew, and create. I love to learn new things and try out new ideas. My days are filled with school work, eating lots of food and running and/or biking lots and lots of miles. I am thankful each day for my adventurous family who has taught me to love everything from canyoneering to motorcycle riding. I love nature and spending time in the mountains behind my house in Provo Canyon.
Are you Mormon?
Why yes I am Mormon! Thanks for asking ;) I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (also known as Mormon or LDS). The LDS church is founded upon faith in our savior and redeemer, Jesus Christ. We believe that because of his holy atonement and sacrifice, we can repent of our sins and become clean. I know that Christ is my personal savior. I know that before this life we were with a heavenly family and because of Christ we are able to live here on earth with our families now. I know that the family is a unit ordained of God. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the true church on the earth, it has truly changed my life. You can learn more at LDS.org or you can shoot me an email! I’m happy to answer any questions!
What is the focus of Sourdough Sunday?
I ask myself that question every day. Hahahaha just kiddingggg. Sourdough Sunday mainly focuses on family and personal recipes, and a very small (like maybe 2) DIY projects. Anyway. The goal of Sourdough Sunday is to change lives. And I know that sounds like so impossibly cheesy, but it’s true! I want to help people understand that developing skills in the home will improve all things in the world. Neal A. Maxwell said, "What happened in cradles and kitchens will prove to be more controlling than what happened in congresses." So thank you Mr. Maxwell, there’s my goal; to improve what happens in kitchens and cradles.
What is your favorite recipe on your blog?
People ask me this so much. I always give them a crazy look and then ask them who their favorite child is hahaha! But really it’s kind of like that! Can anyone really pick their favorite? But, I promise every recipe is a great one! I never put any recipe that I do not like on Sourdough Sunday. And when I’m old and saggy I promise I will be searching for that blasted cookie recipe because I won’t remember the ingredients (and what a sight that will be).
Do you ever do collaborations or work with other people?
YES! Email me! I have done lots of collabs with restaurants and bloggers. I would love to work with you on anything from cooking to company work.
Thanks for stopping by,
Talk to you soon!
