Happy humpday!

This morning I whipped up some de-licioussss hot cereal! I used the Quaker multigrain and I combined it with 1 cup lite soy milk, a banana and tons of cinnamon on the stove. When it was totally creamy, I stirred in some peanut butter and then topped it with maple syrup. Wow! I gobbled that bowl down pretty darn fast it was so delicious. I think the cinnamon is the trick. I use a TON! Last night in school we made some rustic artisan loaves—we made prosciutto baguettes (gave them to my partner!), pumpernickel bread and 100% whole wheat bread. Ryan loves pumpernickel so I immediately froze that one to bring to him on Sunday but of course I had to keep the whole wheat one for myself. It’s not often in culinary school we actually cook/bake healthy things! Its super soft and will make really yummy sandwiches. 🙂

    site looks good!

    I bet that homemade wheat will make AMAZING sandwiches. you’re so lucky you have it now. I’ve never made bread (but have baked every other sweet known to man), but might have to try soon.

    Hi Beth,

    I happened to have the recipe for the “Beginner Rolls” saved to my computer, so I’ve posted it below. Hope that helps!!

    Half-Whole-Wheat Rolls (aka Beginner’s Rolls)
    Makes 8 rolls

    1 cup milk
    1 package yeast
    1 1/4 cup whole wheat flour
    1 1/4 cup white flour
    1/2 tsp sea salt
    1/4 tsp (pinch) sugar
    1. Heat the milk so that it’s warmish-hot. Pour into a bowl and add the yeast, sugar and salt. Let the yeast dissolve for about five minutes.
    2. Add the flours, saving 1/2 cup.
    3. Form a smooth ball but do not knead. Set in a warm place and cover with a towel for 30 minutes.
    4. After 30 minutes,add the remaining flour and knead the dough briefly (only a couple minutes—don’t overdo it!) and divide into 8 portions.
    5. Roll each portion out to form a little ball and set all 8 on a greased baking pan.
    6. Cover the baking pan with a towel and put in a warm spot for another 30 minutes. By this time the dough should have risen to double it’s original size.
    7. Bake at 425 for about 10-15 minutes, until golden brown.

    Happy Wednesday Girls!!

    for jenna or anyone else who has made the rolls –
    can you substitute hempmilk or almond breeze for the regular milk in the recipe?

    Hey I’m Kristie. I’ve never posted here before but read regularly so I figured I’d start right now by joining in with everyone else in saying that those breads look AMAZING. They all look so fresh and delicious, I wish I had the skills to make fresh homemade breads like that.

    Wow those look amazing! There is nothing like fresh bread; it’s sad most americans rely almost completely on packaged! Great job Jenna

    Oh my goodness, Jenna, you are certainly becoming (and basically already are) a true bread-baking connoisseur!!! Look at the craftsmanship on those loaves and rolls!! Love it.

    Happy humpday, indeed – I cannot WAIT for the weekend already!! :0)

    I have a dumb question- but where do I buy lentils at the grocery store? Are they sold in a can?

  • jenna

    Nope! They are dried and sold where the dried beans are in the store. That should be the same aisle as the canned beans.
