Tasty Tuesday: Dave's Killer Wheat Bread



My dad travels around quite a bit. One of the things that he collects during his travels is new recipes. This Tasty Tuesday treat is one from his collection. He got it when he was in Montana from a lady named Linda, who got it from someone on the internet, that made a copycat recipe of an actual bread that's available for purchase called Dave's Killer Bread 100% Whole Wheat. It's delicious and well worth the hassle it took to locate and purchase vital wheat gluten.

So, here's the recipe as I received and made it:

Dave's Killer Whole Wheat Bread


3 1/3 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 cup sugar or honey
1 Tbsp. plus 1/2 tsp. yeast
2 1/4 cups warm water
1 1/2 Tbsp. molasses
1 Tbsp. canola oil
Proof yeast in some of the water. Mix well with all above ingredients. Beat 5 minutes. Cover and set aside for one hour.

Add 1/4 cup gluten (VITAL WHEAT GLUTEN, This is flour with the starch and bran removed.), 2 tsp. salt and enough whole wheat flour to make a sticky, smooth dough. If dough seems too dry, add a little water. Beat 10 minutes. Divide into two pieces. Cover with damp towel, rest 15 minutes. Form two loaves. Let rise about an hour in greased pans. Bake at 350 degrees 30-40 minutes or until well-browned and done.



Here are my notes: I did use sugar instead of honey, though I think honey would be awesome. It takes about another 3 cups of whole wheat flour after the sponge rests. I made one in a loaf pan and one free form on a baking sheet, both were excellent. Makes excellent sandwiches and toast.

James Week 10 James 5: 13-20

We finish up our study on James with some encouraging words about prayer and standing in the gap.




Study Questions Week 10


When you don't feel like yourself, what is generally your first response? Do you start with prayer, rest, food, lashing out at others? When you encounter others that are not acting like themselves what is your initial thought? How do you think your relationships would be different if you began those interactions with prayers? Prayers for understanding for yourself and peace for the other person?When you are happy, do you ever try to keep it to yourself because you don't want to celebrate while others around you are struggling? Can focusing our happiness towards God with praise and worship change how we view sharing those moments? God is the source of every good and perfect gift (James 1:17). How can this verse help shape your worship and praise? Take some time this week to praise God for some good gifts, which are present even if you are in the midst of a s…

Murder, Motherhood, and Miraculous Grace by Debra Moerke

Y'all know that I love a good murder mystery, especially when it's based on a true story. Unfortunately, this is one of the most heartbreaking true stories that I've read.

This is the true story of a foster family and not just any foster family, this was the teach others how to do it foster family. They took all the tough cases and kept larger families together. They knew how to foster kids. This story is about a specific family of several kids that came into their care when their single mother ran into some problems with the law.

There was one little girl from the displaced family, Hannah, found a very special place in their hearts. It became clear during their time together that Hannah was not treated the same as her siblings by her birth mother, Karen. She showed fear and the other children distanced themselves from her. When it came time to return to live with their birth mother, Hannah begged to stay with the Moerke family. The Moerkes did all they could to keep tabs…
