Hi All,

I have been a long time subscriber to this list.  However, I haven't posted 
in quite a while due to the fact that I have a very active toddler!!  I am 
starting to explore some new types of bread.  After much research, I have 
discovered that both sourdough and sprouted grain breads are extremely 
nutritious and easy to digest.  I am looking for recipes, both regular and 
bread machine (if there are any available) and any hints or tips to make 
these types of bread come out the best they can be.  I only want to use 
freshly ground flour from wheat berries and other grains for the sourdough 
and I am planning on sprouting my own grains for the sprouted breads.  I 
have yet to make either type.  Like I said, this is a really new 
venture.  I have some sourdough starter that is in the process right now. 
I'm really looking forward to these coming out well.

Oh, one other question.  Of course I am wanting to use these for 
sandwiches.  I have yet to come across a great way to slice things 
evenly.  Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
