Finger-food platter

January 24th, 2010

 My finger-food platter

Every once in a while members of a running club, that I am a member of, gather for a finger-food potluck.  Being a food-lover, I thoroughly enjoy these occasions.  What surprises me the most is the selection of “unhealthy” foods and beer that flow at these things.  These runners are (…read more and get the recipe)

Gobi Paratha

Gobi Paratha
I sure love Indian food, and lately I have been experimenting with more and more recipes.  I am pretty sure I would be in heaven if I could visit India and enjoy a home-cooked meal (or ten).  I have an Indian friend at work who describes some really amazing foods that she makes and her mother makes and I think I drool every time!

Well, I am (…read more and get the recipe)

Bread with Added Wheat Gluten [Update]

June 18th, 2008

Done Rising, let it bake

I tried making bread with the 1/2 cup of wheat gluten added as suggested by a friend.  I mentioned it in my whole wheat bread recipe, but didn’t actually try it until now.  The result was a bread that, when sliced, looks and feels much more like what you can buy in the grocery store.  I think it’s too much like what you get in the store.  Next time I am going to try my recipe with 1/4 cup of wheat gluten instead of the 1/2 cup I added this time.  We can usually finish a loaf of bread in about a week, so it’ll take me that long before I bake another loaf.

100% Whole Wheat Bread

June 12th, 2008

The Bread

This blog post has been a long time coming.  Every time I make bread, and I make it often, I think I should post it!  Well, lately I’ve been in the posting mood, so it’s your lucky day!  This bread recipe has been such a blessing to me; the bread comes out perfect every time (with the exception of using bad flour).  I like to use whole wheat, but sometimes I sneak in 1/2 cup of regular flour.  You would definitely want to do that if you don’t have good quality whole-wheat flour.  Here are all of the tricks I have learned from making bread over the past 18 months or so: (…read more and get the recipe)
