I’ve been a little underwhelmed thus far by my new (if you consider something from good-will new) bread machine. The bread smells great but it looks funny and has an odd texture. I’ve come up with one recipe, however, that I love. I won’t post a picture, because that might dissuade you from trying it.
Cornmeal Wheat Bread
1.5 tsp yeast
1 c white flour
1 c whole wheat flour
1 c stone ground corn meal
1 tsp salt
1 c warm water
1/4 c oil
1 egg
2 T molasses (I use blackstrap)
follow the directions on your machine…..I add 2 T of gluten if I’m not using bread flour.

Which has, up until now, usually meant margarine made from disgusting ingredients such as cottonseed oil. Last year, […]

I’m not a haggadah junkie. I know many Jews whose shelves are overflowing with numerous versions of the Haggadah – from the traditional Maxwell House to the not-so-traditional Santa Cruz – and whose seders are an amalgam of commentaries, poems, and (alas) responsive readings, from these dog-eared, post- it covered books. Maybe it’s because my […]
