Just 5: No Knead Bread with Dill | The Fresh Exchange

One of my goals this year was to begin making bread. The process of making bread is something that holds wonderful memories from my childhood.

Choose Greatness

Choose Greatness | The Fresh Exchange

Greatness. There is a fun topic. I have been pondering the word the last few days and asking myself things such as: – What does greatness look like to me?  – What does it mean to be great at something? – Why do I see other’s greater than myself at times?
