These are a few of my favorite things...

Watch for some of my favorite whole foods recipes in the next month as we gear up for the holidays.  Treat your family to some special treats that are fun and good for you, too.  Using ingredients as close to their natural state as we can find, we'll whip up some special meals together.
Coming up:
flat breads
crackers
biscotti
marinated peppers
hot pepper mustard
rolled grape leaves
lamb stew
just to name a few!


Let's start off with my whole grain crackers.

3 cups of freshly ground mixed grain flour
1/3 cup of EVOO
1 cup water plus 2 TBSP
1/2 tsp sea salt

Mix all ingredients adding the extra water 1 TBSP at a time as needed.
Don't over work the dough.
Roll out in very thin layers on an ungreased cookie sheet.  My sheets have ridges all around so I flip them over and roll out on the back.
Score or cut into squares with a pizza cutter.  Prick each cracker a few times with a fork.
Bake at 350°F for 30-35 minutes or until crisp. 
The outside crackers may need to be removed from the pan and the others returned to the oven for a minute or two longer to brown.

These are great topped with course sea salt and dipped in homemade yogurt cheese and chopped olives!
You can find my recipe for yogurt cheese here.

More yummy variations to follow.

  1. YUM! I hope to make some biscotti soon. I'm actually thinking of starting a small business. Coffee and Biscotti! Fresh roasted coffee! And homemade biscotti, of your choice!

    I'm still working on it though..
