Tuesday Twister - Mainly Cookies

Click on the photo for a larger view of the details. Suffice it to say there has been much cookie making this month (a batch or two I forgot to photograph too). I have been so happy to discover I can grind very small batches of sprouted wheat berries in my coffee grinder. Enough for cookie making and a homemade loaf of 100% sprouted bread.

However, I still would rather have a grain mill of my own! Hope you entered the giveaway!

What about you? What happened in your kitchen last week? Care to share? Join us for Tuesday Twister next week.

For more inspiration see today's list of
Tuesday Twisters and see what's twisting in other real-foodies kitchens.

December Challenge: It's Up to You!

I have really enjoyed the monthly challenge series over the last 12 months. This month is the last challenge associated with last December's post about bite-size steps to a nutrient-dense diet. The challenge this month is to take a look at the products you still purchase already made from the store. Is there something you could experiment with replacing? For me it was switching to homemade crackers. Next on my list is my own ketchup. I think if I were to step it up, it might be coming up with my own sprouted grain pasta noodles....but that will be on the back burner for a long while, I think.

What about you? What are you still buying and thinking "I wonder if I could make that?" Somewhere between all the cookie making and gift wrapping this month, give it a try and let me know!

Also, did you find these challenges helpful? What would you like to see more of or less of on this blog? I have plans to spend more time here in 2010 and have ideas on how I would like to develop it, but I'd love to hear from you. Feel free to leave comments here or to email me at mariannescrivner (at) gmail (dot) com.
