About Frieda Loves Bread

I grew up in a home where bread was baked weekly. Wanting the same home baked goodness for my family, I learned quickly that making a soft, crusty loaf of bread required more than simply following a basic recipe. I am discovering that grinding my own grain provides a higher quality of baked goods in taste, texture, and nutrients. I am the mother of two grown boys, share my love of baking comfort foods by blogging and teaching bread classes locally.

GRAIN MILL CHALLENGE SUMMARY:

This challenge encouraged me to try other grains and experiment with new recipes! Previously, I had only used my grain mill for grinding wheat and corn. My personal goals in this challenge were to:
1) grind a variety of grains, and 2) make recipes other than bread. To date, I have ground seven different grains and have discovered new recipes to add to my favorites. Participation in this challenge has also introduced me to a group of talented bloggers with many more recipes and grains to explore!
