Easy Whole Wheat Pancakes

Easy Whole Wheat Pancakes

For years, my go-to pancake recipe has been these Whole Wheat Oatmeal Pancakes, which I love.  So when hubby offered to make pancakes a few weeks back and instead reverted back to a recipe I made ages ago (and had pretty much forgotten about!), I was curious.  I had stopped using that recipe because itRead More

Chocolate Chip Zucchini Bread/Muffins (Whole Wheat)

People like to talk about seasonal food, but with modern transportation and grocery stores, it’s sometimes easy to forget that most of us do not live in an area where a wide variety of produce grows year-round.  And yet even though you can pretty much always get things like lettuce, carrots, bananas, and apples, inRead MoreRead More

100% Whole Wheat Hamburger Buns AGAIN! (Bread Machine)

Hi everyone!  Just wanted to quickly share a recipe I’ve made several times this summer.  I know I already have a 100% Whole Wheat Hamburger Bun recipe on the site, but that recipe has a few ingredients that are a little more processed than I prefer (e.g., dried milk, potato flour, vital wheat gluten) andRead More

Pumpkin Muffins

Pumpkin Muffins

A few weeks ago I ended up with some free time with the munchkin while the peanut was napping.  My freezer stock on muffins was getting low and we were having company that weekend, so I thought a baking project might be fun.  When I asked her what kind of muffins we should make, sheRead More
