Portland is famous for our rainy weather and this spring hasÂ been no exception. Day after day of rainy gray days can make a person a little stir crazy sometimes. When I get stir crazy, I like to jump into the kitchen and bake up something delicious. It keeps my mind off of the weather and I find it so comforting to create something good to eat.
These days my inspiration has come from trying to find quality whole grain recipes that replace something I normally purchase pre-made. I probably have too much time on my hands, but good, homemade food is one of the many pleasures of being human.
For bread, I have been baking Three Seed Bread. With the addition of hard white whole wheat flour, in place of white flour, I find this loaf hearty and wholesome and irresistible right out of the oven with a pat of butter. Our website has many recipes that are far more complicated and will yield an amazing loaf, but I love the simplicity of this bread. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
