Feeling Green, (In a good way!)

http://gnowfglins.com/2010/01/12/tuesday-twister-blog-carnival-2010-01-12 For todays Tuesday Twister I thought I would share some “green” recipes, both of which are VERY good! First……………………… Homemade Spinach Tortillas We have eaten these with homemade tacos, as breakfast burritos and plain. The spinach flavor is not too pronounced so you could even use these in dessert tortilla recipes. These also have the … Continue reading

Sprouted Wheat Pizza Dough

Here is the sprouted wheat pizza dough. I like this better than my other pizza dough recipe. So much food, so little time! My kids like plain pizza’s, and I didn’t want to make separate ones since I was using my pizza stone. So I just did half and half. One side is homemade pizza sauce … Continue reading

Homemade Bagels

These turned out good. I do need to figure out a way to make them more uniform and pretty, but the flavor was good. In the end that’s what counts right? To shape these I just made them into a ball and poked my fingers through the middle to make a hole. As I said … Continue reading

Taco’s with Homemade Tortillas

There isn’t really a specific recipe for the meat mixture. I change it up every time I make it.  Here is the general idea anyway……… Also, I need to try making the tortillas with either sprouted wheat or soaked wheat. I’ll let you know when that happens. I really need to plan ahead better! Taco’s … Continue reading


Apricots are in season. A friend of mine has a HUGE apricot tree and shared the wealth with me. Thanks Julie! When I first got them I was trying to think of all the wonderful things I could do with them. Hmmmmmm……… This is what I opted for. You can pre-treat the apricots with lemon … Continue reading

Chilean Scones (Sopaipillas)

In Chile it is tradition to make sopaipillas when it rains.  It has rained here in Utah more than ever this year, so we kept with tradition. Topped with honey butter and eggs on the side.   My husband likes eggs sunnyside up, then he dips the scone into the egg yolk. Another traditional Chilean … Continue reading

Sprouted Wheat Biscuits

In my last post about biscuits I stated that I don’t really care for them much. WELL……..I think I found MY biscuit! These tasted delicious! This is how I cut them out. ONLY once. When you mess with the dough too much they get tough. So I would rather have mishapen biscuits than tough biscuits. … Continue reading

Soaked Whole Wheat Biscuits

To tell you the truth, biscuits are not really one of my favorites. But if you are going to make biscuits, these are a great  choice. Even though they are made with whole wheat they turn out light and fluffly. They are not perfectly shaped because I only roll them out once. The less you … Continue reading

Cracked Wheat Raisin Bread

This bread is SOOOOO good! A friend made it for us about 15 years ago. I had forgotten about it all this time. The other day I remembered, and found I still had the recipe. Glad I tried it! I of course adapted it to be made with whole wheat and honey instead of white … Continue reading

Good VS. the Ugly

I made bread the other day and used the same recipe I always use. For some reason it didn’t turn out! Blah!! I hate it when that happens. Ugly bread! It didn’t rise and it was almost as hard as a rock!   This is the bread I made to redeem myself. This bread is … Continue reading
