Habits are hard. At least they are when they aren’t already automatic. I’m always thinking about this blog, and feeling guilty when I don’t do any baking. I know that I’ve had some good reasons to put this on the back burner for a time, but there was also a lot of laziness involved.
A fun new baking challenge has presented itself recently. At my last doctors appointment I learned that I’m sensitive to wheat, and Hubby is as well. I know about this flour called Kamut. It’s pretty amazing stuff. (I included health info, and the supplier in MT where I purchased the flour. Links are at the end)
My goal is to try all of my normal recipes with the Kamut to see how it affects us. Which means that I just have to make all of my favorite cookie recipes, and bread recipes, and I can’t forget my cinnamon rolls. I have to do it for research…oh the sacrifices that are made in the name of science!
I purchased the white flour because a)I don’t have experience cooking with wheat flour and b) Hubby told me that he had bread made from the Kamut white flour and it was one of the best breads he’s ever eaten…I mean how can you turn away that raving review?
Again, I love this recipe. It made almost 5 dozen cookies. They are chewy and delicious. I made the batch 1/2 craisin (Hubby’s favorite) 1/2 butterscotch (my favorite). That’s the joy of cooking right, being able to make it how you want it?
I’m still not 100% comfortable in the kitchen, but I’m still working at it. I can’t promise that I’ll be back next week but I’m sure going to try.
