Red Fife Galette Dough
Here’s our go-to recipe for galette dough. A galette is a free form pie, that is wrapped around filling either sweet or savory. Why do we love them? Well a galette is a lazy woman's pie. A galette is a happy woman's pie ;) You simply roll out the dough into a dough circle and top it: no pie pan or crimping required! Make this with whatever you have on hand; summer stone fruit is some of my favorite or use up leftover's for a savory pie (as seen above- leftover roast beef + cheese + chives).

Sourdough Rye Cookies
Let's be real...a cookie will never be healthy. But I like to believe these are a bit healthier than the average chocolate chip cookie. They make me happy and sometimes that's all that matters :) Our entire family is head over heels in love with them! They freeze well too. You'll want to prep this at night to bake the next morning, or prep first thing in the morning to bake later in the day, to allow the sourdough to work it's magic fermenting power on the flour. Enjoy!

Traditional Sourdough Pancakes
This recipe is from the book 'Alaska Sourdough' by Ruth Allman. Unlike regular pancakes, this sourdough version offers a much more complex flavour. We typically add raspberries and serve with a touch of maple syrup or mixed berry compote. They can easily be made vegan by replacing the egg with 1 tbsp of ground flax mixed with 3 tbsp of water and left to soak a few minutes. They can also be made wheat free by using rye sourdough.
