Hi! I'm Hannah.
I'm the voice, baker and creator behind Make It Dough.
Thanks for visiting my blog where I share sourdough bread recipes, creative sourdough discard ideas and tips that help bakers make better bread in their home kitchens.
I started this blog in 2018 to document my foray into sourdough bread baking. Along the way, it helped me discover a passion for recipe development and food photography. Today, I've transformed Make It Dough into a thriving business.
Although a lot has changed since I created my sourdough starter so many years ago, this blog continues to be my love letter to sourdough and its many wonderful uses.
I'm currently living happily in Tucson, AZ with my boyfriend Joel, our dog Geordie and our three cats Zoey, Penny Lane and Sergeant Pepper.
I’m a home baker who became enthralled with sourdough after becoming completely burnt out working as a publicist for almost a decade. With no direction and uncertain of what would come next, the simple act of refreshing my starter provided much-needed structure and gave me something to look forward to every day. I discovered a passion for bread making which helped me realize that what I loved most in life was retreating to my kitchen to make food for the people I love.
Today, I'm so fortunate to share my food with people all over the world through the sourdough recipes I publish here on Make It Dough.
Stay Up to Date
Sourdough has truly changed my life
In 2019, Make It Dough was awarded the Reader’s Choice Award for Best Special Interest Blog by Saveur Magazine. The following year, I published my very first cookbook, Sourdough Every Day. A book that showcases my love for sourdough discard.
My journey with sourdough is a testament that pursuing your passion is completely worthwhile and that you owe it to yourself to live a life that's only filled with the things that you love.
Keep in Touch!
