“[Breadmaking is] one of those almost hypnotic businesses, like a dance from some ancient ceremony. It leaves you filled with one of the world’s sweetest smells… there is no chiropractic treatment, no Yoga exercise, no hour of meditation in a music-throbbing chapel. that will leave you emptier of bad thoughts than this homely ceremony of making bread.”
― M.F.K. Fisher, The Art of Eating: 50th Anniversary Edition


I adore bread.  A more accurate statement would be:  I LOVE bread!


I was so tickled to receive a Wonder Mill to review.  Ever since the Y2K scare, I have wanted a grain mill so that I can grind my own grain.

The model that I received is an electric model and really easy to use.  Simply wash and dry it before using it, turn it on, add grain and watch it work.  It’s quite fast, too.  (It is a little loud, but since it is fast it’s not a big problem.)

I did a little bit of research about using whole grain flour.  I learned from Cooking Light that it is good to start out by replacing some, not all, of the flour called for with whole wheat.  That’s good to know.

I saw a picture in a cookbook of a mini loaf and it inspired me to look at some of my recipes and develop a healthy, whole-wheat recipe.

I prefer to utilize my bread machine when making bread; however, I prefer to bake my loaves in an oven.  The dough for these cute little mini-loaves was a little “tacky” or “sticky” upon completion of the dough cycle, but that was easily remedied by kneading in a little more flour.

Oh neat! I've heard of grain mills but never really knew what they were for. It's cool to see bread made from start to finish like that.

Lynda, these little loaves are so lovely- and I like all the healthy ingredients: honey, olive oil, whole wheat flour, and oats! I know your kitchen smelled heavenly.

Thanks for the review of the Wonder Mill- that would certainly come in handy- I'll have to check out their website.

Love, Joy
