It's Thursday and once again time to share what we made from scratch this week! Hopefully now that temps are dropping (in SOME areas!), it will be easier to get into the baking mood! And if you haven't been in the kitchen for a while, this is your challenge! Make something new this week! And then share with us next week how it went! Not always are my attempts successful, but mistakes help us grow and learn!
This week, my sister and I made a trip to the bulk food store. It is always so fun to have a list of new ingredients to try in a new recipe, and then to pick them out at the bulk food store. This week my new ingredients were Sprouted Whole Wheat Flour and Sesame Seeds. I used the Sprouted Whole Wheat Flour last night in homemade pancakes and in homemade granola... It is GREAT for you and tastes good!

You will also see that I have honey in the pic above. I get that from my uncle. We DO have our own honey bees, but we didn't collect any honey from them this year. We are going to leave the honey for the colony this Winter. Until then, I still need some GOOD honey to substitute for sugar in many recipes!
Last night, I was so happy to FINALLY have wheat flour, I made some of our favorite homemade granola...
|A favorite in our family: Granola!|
This week, I also made some muffins, and replaced the normal sugar amount with honey. SO we don't have to feel so bad about eating them! :)
I am looking forward to trying a few more recipes this week also... I will share them if they turn out to be any good!
So what did YOU make this week? Care to share? Please either link up or share in the comments!
