Bread!

I made this bread tonight. Made the preferment while I took a nap after work, mixed the dough before I went to the health club, and baked it while I ate dinner. Beautiful, delicious, and easy to make. And it is, of course, made with 100% whole wheat flour. Honey-oatmeal. I’ve posted this recipe–and variationsContinue reading “Bread!”

Three Loaves and a Pie…

I haven’t posted this recipe in a while and I made it this morning so I thought I’d re-post it (as it is one of my favorites).

And is often the case, after the first rise of the dough (before IContinue reading “Three Loaves and a Pie…”

Fourteen Bean, Grain, and Legume Bread (a meal in every slice)

I’ve posted this recipe some time ago but it is so easy to make and so delicious that I thought I would re-post it. This is really a variation of my Ezekiel Bread recipe (click here or here) but somewhat simplified in that you boil the beans all at once rather than in stages. AndContinue reading “Fourteen Bean, Grain, and Legume Bread (a meal in every slice)”

Pizza Primavera (yum!)…cooking like it’s springtime even if the weather won’t cooperate

I made this for dinner tonight and it was another one of those meals where you look in the fridge and realize there’s not much there. In this case I usually either put it (whatever I happen to have) on a pizza, make a sandwich out of it, or toss it with pasta (which isContinue reading “Pizza Primavera (yum!)…cooking like it’s springtime even if the weather won’t cooperate”

Whole Wheat Chickpea Turmeric Bread (yum!)

I haven’t posted this bread in a while, in fact I haven’t made it in a while, but here it is. Delicious and healthy, it is also easy to make. Like any of the Ezekiel Bread Recipes or other whole grain recipes, the chick peas basically dissolve (or get mashed) into the dough as itContinue reading “Whole Wheat Chickpea Turmeric Bread (yum!)”

Thoughts on the Parable of the Leaven…a story within a story

So if you’ve been to this blog before you know that I like bread. A lot. I enjoy eating it, of course, but I also enjoy making it. I’ve often said that bread makes itself, that we merely provide the correct conditions and guide it along; I am really fascinated by its process. I’m alsoContinue reading “Thoughts on the Parable of the Leaven…a story within a story”

Whole Wheat Sweet Potato Bread with Honey

This bread is really delicious, nutritious, and simple to make. But contrary to what you may be thinking it is not overtly sweet (just mildly); it’s really a savory bread (but it does make great French Toast); I’ve eaten 3/4 of a loaf in the past few days. The sweet potato adds more than flavorContinue reading “Whole Wheat Sweet Potato Bread with Honey”

Pain de blé entier, ou pain complet…

The Entire Kernal…

Beautiful isn’t it? Bread made with 100% whole wheat flour and just a few other ingredients. If you’ve been to this blog before you know that my diet is the antithesis of a low-carb or gluten-free diet…the bulk of my diet consists of bread, rice, and pasta (with vegetables, meat, and fish). And for thisContinue reading “The Entire Kernal…”

Fourteen Beans…

I’m not one to normally by bean blends because it is so easy to just blend your own (and anything pre-mixed is usually more expensive), but last week I was at the grocery store and saw these and they looked so beautiful I purchased them. Fourteen types of beans, the label stated. I do planContinue reading “Fourteen Beans…”
