Whole Grain Flour

Okay, so I am SUPER excited to share this and I hope at least one of you love this as much as I do.

I ran across this girls website/blog a few years ago and have been following her ever since. I think she has some great ideas and ways of incorporating whole foods into your diet that don't seem super radical. But one of my favorite things she introduced me to was her white flour substitute. I have been trying to eliminate white flour from our diet over the last few year. But you can't make chocolate chip cookies with wheat flour, right? Anyways so far I've made pancakes, muffins and cookies with this whole grain flour and they've been delicious and you feel so much better knowing it's whole grain.

Here is the link to the video for the whole grain flour:

Pretty much it's equal parts spelt, barley, and brown rice. Mix and put through the wheat grinder.

Here is a link to her website as well:

Hot Fudge

Hot fudge is a current weakness of mine....just add it to the growing list.

1 cup butter
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
3 cups white sugar
1 (12 fluid ounce) can evaporated milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Combine butter, cocoa, sugar and evaporated milk in a saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a boil and boil for 7 minutes. Remove from heat; stir in vanilla. Carefully pour hot mixture into a blender and blend for 2 to 4 minutes. Serve immediately. Store in refrigerator.
