About one and one eighth danish

My name is Signe and I am a Danish thirtysomething woman and pastor’s wife now living in Arizona. I’ve recently begun blogging about our life and lessons learned along the way.  Part of this journey has involved our growing desire to be healthy, which has led us to be more intentional about the products we use and the food that we eat – all while staying on a budget. I love to travel and explore the world around me, while trying to combine my Danish upbringing and identity with the culture I am now part of. I enjoy spending time with people and especially my family wherever they may be around the world and of course my wonderful and amazing husband.   My blog is called one and one eighth danish which can be found at ourcarlsonlife.blogspot.com

Grain Mill Wagon Experience: I really enjoyed being part of the Grain Mill Wagon Challenge. I had been wanting to mill my own flour for a while and the WonderMill allowed me to get started on baking nutrition packed breads and desserts. It was fun getting to revive old recipes and make them better. It was easy to substitute the fresh whole wheat flour in my original recipes and it didn’t change the taste much and they are now full of bran and nutrition. I was surprised at how easy and quick it was to mill my own grains. I have also found that milling my own flour (especially if making gluten free breads etc) is cheaper than buying the pre-ground specialty flours. The Grain Mill Wagon Challenge has given me a renewed excitement to bake and I feel good about eating and serving what I have made.
