Grain Mill Wagon Challenge:

As my first experience owning and using a grain mill, I have to say that I'm blown away. The WonderMill Grain Mill is fantastic! It's easy to use, grinds beautifully and is really quite an effortless process. Prior to this challenge I knew at some point I would want to have a grain mill on my "wish list" and I'm thrilled that I have one NOW for several reasons.

First, this challenge has put me in the kitchen, front and center, cooking for my family far more often. I'm glad this is happening sooner rather than later! This challenge has pushed me to new heights in a fun way, and has shown me that I'm really capable of cooking and baking a lot more adventurously than I previously thought.

Secondly, this challenge has offered me the push to try gluten-free flours I've yet to use. Black bean flour? Tapioca flour? YES! New gluten-free ingredients such as these have really made it fun and more interesting in my kitchen!

Lastly, through this challenge I learned that I was probably buying rancid flours from store shelves before. I had no clue! The importance of using freshly ground flours never completely crossed my mind until this challenge. Fresh flours from our WonderMill Grain Mill makes a world of difference in taste, texture and outcome of my recipes!

Thank you WonderMill for challenging me to challenge myself. I'd say, "mission accomplished"!
