Recently I received a copy of Good Cheap Eats by Jessica Fisher, to review. I was so excited when this little gem came in the mail. As you know, cookbooks are a favorite of mine. I love pouring over the pages and deciding what new thing I will make my family.
This recipe book is full 200 recipes, compiled into 70 mix-and-match menus. I love it when the author does all the organizing for me. I love having simple meal plans ready for me to use. It makes this Mama smile:)
Jessica Fisher, is the ultimate guide to eating well on a budget. She offers a delicious alternative to familiar weeknight take-out with nourishing, from-scratch meals that save time and money. Each feast costs less than $10 to make, and while it is designed for families of four, it's also perfect for singles, couples, and everyone in between. Awesome right!?
I have a long list of recipes on my must make list.
The first recipe I was dying to try was the Honey Whole Wheat Bread. It sounded absolutely delicious and let me tell you...it did not disappoint. We used our own ground wheat flour and my thrifted bread machine to make it. This recipe is a keeper!
Want to know how to make it yourself?
Let's get to it!
Honey Whole Wheat Bread
1 cup buttermilk*
4 tbl butter or margarine
1 large egg, beaten
1/4 cup honey
1 1/2 cups all-purpose white four
1 1/2 cups white whole wheat flour (I used regular whole wheat flour)*
1 tsp sea salt (I used regular salt)
2 1/4 tsp active dry yeast
Combine all ingredients in your bread machine pan, according to your manufacturers directions. Run on dough cycle. Once the cycle is over, grease a 9x5in. loaf pan. Remove the dough from your bread machine and roll into a tight loaf. Place in loaf pan and allow to rise for one hour, or until doubled in bulk. Preheat oven to 400'. Bake bread until golden brown, 20-25 minutes.
*Don't have buttermilk? No worries! Add1 tbl vinegar or lemon juice to your one cup of milk. Makes for a great substitute!
*You can grind your own whole wheat at home for a fraction of the cost of store bought WW flour. Place 1 cup of hard cracked wheat into a nutri-bullet and grind. My nutri-bullet came with a grain attachment, so I can make my own whole wheat flour at home :) You can see my finished flour HERE.
*I added 1/2 tbl of bran, flax seed, and nutritional yeast to my dough for an extra healthy kick :)
*I forgot to read the cooking directions and baked it as I do the rest of my bread. I did it at 350' for 32 minutes. It came out great! This bread is really yummy and simple to make!
*I rub my bread with butter after baking. It makes it taste yummy!
