Meet Diane Shields from Alabama. She’s this month’s featured Kitchen Friend.
When did you first make or receive a starter?
I was given a sourdough starter 30 plus years ago. I kept it going for a long time then let it die. Now that I’m retired I have plenty of time to devote to it.
Who do you bake Amish Friendship Bread for?
For my aunt and uncle. I’ll also be sending some to my cousin in Alaska.
Do you have any ideas to share on creative ways to give Amish Friendship Bread to others?
Most of my family are diabetics so I’m going to attempt to make recipes with coconut palm sugar instead of white sugar, as well as try other diabetic-friendly changes.
What is one of your favorite things about the Friendship Bread Kitchen?
How well organized and clear everything is.
What is your favorite kitchen utensil or appliance?
The cast iron dutch oven that belonged to my dad’s grandmother.
What is your idea of perfect happiness?
Sharing a home cooked meal with family.
What is your most marked characteristic?
My southern drawl, y’all.
Who are your heroes in real life?
My parents. My mom is 82 and my dad is 87. They run circles around me!
