Grain Mill Wagon Experience: When I first took on the Grain Mill Wagon challenge, I was apprehensive and nervous. I had barely conquered baking with store-bought flour. However, I found plenty of support and recipe inspiration through Wonder Mill's website, and before I knew it, I was baking with freshly ground flour quite successfully - even on my first try! It was much easier than I thought it would be and my breads were softer, richer, and more robust -- we could literally taste all that extra nutrition. I am so glad I dove in and took the challenge. I will never go back to store-bought flour. My new Wonder Mill is sure to be one of my most frequently used appliances!
