Wheat Cookery

The other night I did a cooking marathon of a couple hours and when I was finished had quite a few foods for my family ready to eat. Most of these foods were frozen for lunch snacks, but some were eaten hot out of the oven.

Here are some videos:


Give us this day our daily bread

I use my bread machine to bake bread almost every day, sometimes twice a day! Here is a picture of our wheat grinder processing some wheat and flax for this recipe

Add two cups of whole wheat flour (if you add flax seed into the wheat, you do not have to use oil in this recipe)

You need a little sweetner to get the yeast going. I use Agave for our bread.

One teaspoon sea salt

One teaspoon of yeast

Finished Loaf of whole grain bread

Sliced bread
Recipe for bread machine:
1 and 1/4 c water
2 cups whole wheat flour
1 tsp sweetner
1 tsp salt
1 and 1/2 c white flour
1 tsp yeast
I bake this on the two pound slow cycle on my machine
Here is one last picture of all the other baked goods I made that night – total baking time was about three hours of work…

I made bread, muffins, lemon bars, biscuits, and oatmeal bar cookies.
Our family saves so much money by grinding our own wheat and making most of our food from scratch. Some people are dismayed at the cost of a good quality wheat mill or bread machine, but these costs are quickly recouped when the family gets in the habit of cooking.
A whole grain muffin from the health food store can be as high as $1.50 per muffin. I can make them for ten cents each. My children have literally been raised on muffins, and I believe they are the perfect toddler food.

Here I am at 41 weeks pregnant with Benjamin. His cousin Dylan was napping while I dozed and sipped raspberry leaf tea.
