Happy Saturday! I love having morning pastries, especially on the weekends. I don’t go out very often and buy them, but I do bake my own on a monthly basis. They are so homey, warm, and delicious to pair with breakfast. The trick is to have a small portion and not make it your WHOLE breakfast.Read More
There are so many different types of flour, all with specific names. What is the difference? The most common type is all purpose flour (unbleached and bleached) you can use universally. Great for baking, thickening sauces or soups, breakfast foods, making pastas and homemade bread, etc. I set out to find out all the differences on flour – specifically wheat flour – no gluten free and nut flours (I’ll save that for a different post)!Read More
Whole grain banana bread! Not too sweet and uniquely full of poppy seeds and sesame seeds! The more ripe the bananas are = more brown spots, the sweeter the bread will be. The excellent nutrition of poppy seeds per 1 oz include calcium, iron, protein, and fiber. Sesame seeds have a good source of calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus. If you wanna get crazy, add in chopped nuts or chocolate chips (I’d opt for the chocolate chips). The bread should keep for a few days and a little longer in the refrigerator. Either eat toasty or cold, straight out of the fridge with a little butter for a great breakfast or snack!Read More
Great summertime cold pasta salad full of veggies and protein. I made this for a Cinco de Mayo party and it was a great hit! Packed with tomatoes, corn, onion, cilantro, black beans, and cheese. Wonderful for any summer gathering or party! I also want to try adding crunchy, colorful bell peppers.Read More
These chocolate chip cookies are my go-to recipe for quick cookies. I make them as a quick dessert for at home, a get-together, or a dinner party. They are even vegan and whole wheat! These little treats are chewy, rich, and golden brown.Read More
This dish reminds us of Thanksgiving with many flavors arising. There is the chewiness from the bread, sweetness from the dried cranberries, and earthy from the rosemary and almonds. This celebration of stuffing has great sources of vitamin A and vitamin C. There is even high protein in a single serving, about as much as a cup of milk!CONTINUE READING
Whole Wheat + Oats = whole grain love
These are great because you can’t tell one bit that they are whole wheat, they taste fantastic. The best part is they don’t look whole wheat so no one has to know!
