Since I have taken to being housewife-y, I have really loved getting to bake and try new recipes. Today, I made pita bread for the 2nd time. It didn't puff at ALL this time (some did, some didn't last time). But I think I may have inadvertently let it rise WAY too much before I rolled it out. But it was still tasty. :eat:

Tomorrow, I am going to try making hummus to put on the leftover pitas.

I think my cursor jumped when I was typing elsewhere and I didn't notice it.

I really like this cookbook: http://www.amazon.co...&sr=1-2-catcorr
My aunt and uncle gave it to us as a wedding gift. And it's got a good mix of easy and more difficult recipes, plus it has a lot of explanations in there on how to make things. Some recipes are meh, but some are really, really good. Oh, and some are pathetically easy...like, I think they actually have a recipe for grilled coagulated milk. :rolleyes: And it is seriously bread and coagulated milk. Not anything fancy.

I have had to take my facebook profile down because my soon-to-be new community does not allow it. here is how I make pitas: This is 100% whole wheat, no salt, no sugar

Flatbread Recipe:

 

Ingredients:

2 tablespoons yeast
2 cups water
4 cups hot water. Soy Milk may be substituted.
16 cups whole wheat flour
2 cups Olive Oil or Canola Oil

Instructions:

1. Mix 2 cups whole wheat flour with the 2 cups water and yeast and let rise for 30 minutes in a large bowl
2. Put the remaining 14 cups of whole wheat flour into the large bowl
3. Add the hot water and olive oil
4. knead the dough for 15 minutes
5. let rise for one hour
6. Put the dough on a lightly floured surface and roll into 4 logs of roughly equal length
7. Cut the logs in half, in half again, and into thirds and roll each piece into a tight ball.
8. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees
9. Roll each ball into a circle of dough between ¼ and 1/2 inch thick. You can use a Tortilla Press to make the circles of dough. Bake 2 minutes
10. Serve hot.
11. Yield: 48 flatbreads

Thank you! I will have to cut it down to make it a bit smaller, since it's only me and the husband, right now. :hehe2: But I will give this a try the next time, since that's twice that this other recipe hasn't turned out quite right. :)

I'm going to try my Granny's donut recipe... wish me luck, I've only observed my mom making it and the last time I was home for that was when I was in highschool... over 10 years ago. lol If they turn out properly, though, it's going to be amazing.

This sounds soooo yummy! I've wanted to try a few donut recipes, but have always decided against it, since me and Roamin don't need a bunch of donuts around tempting us. :hehe2:

I'm going to mail some to my siblings if they turn out well. If they don't.... try, try again. At least flour is pretty cheap. :hehe:

It's (almost) always fun to eat any mistakes. :) My mom used to make fried donut holes with nutmeg & rolled in cinnamon sugar. :eat: Yum! Years ago I made them & they turned out really well.

I just made crackers that are similar to wheat thins. They're tasty, but I didn't roll them thin enough, although Idk how to roll them any thinner without breaking the rolling pin!

I also made the hummus, but it tastes like there is something missing...

Here is something else you might like. It is my base cookie recipe. I use this as the base of all my cookies.

Here is my Cookie Base:
1 Cup Melted Butter
2 Teaspoons Baking Soda
1 Tablespoon Vanilla Extract
2 Cups Sugar (honey or brown sugar can be substituted for a different colour or consistency)
1/4 Cup Molasses (for extra colour) (Optional)
2 Eggs
2 cups flour
Then, if I am making Chocolate Chip cookies, I add 2 cups of chocolate chips; if I am making Peanut Butter cookies I add 2 cups of Peanut Butter; If I am making oatmeal cookies, I add 2 cups of oatmeal and an extra half cup of butter. If I am making Ginger Snaps, I add an extra cup of flour and 1/4 cup of ginger. I think you get the picture from there! I won't put in the molasses if I will ruin the look of the cookie, so no molasses with Peanut Butter, Oatmeal or Coconut Cookies, for example.
yield: 4 dozen cookies
