2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 3/4 cups milk (skim)
4 teaspoons of baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
Beat eggs. Combine with the dry ingredients together until smooth and pour into hot waffle iron.
(Editor's note: You may want to check with Matia regarding the recipe above as it contains milk)
I also do oriental dishes without the soy sauce, and sauté shrimp/chicken and vegetables with oil, garlic, salt, a tiny bit of sesame oil and put over rice noodles - pretty good.
(Editor's note: I would substitute olive oil for sesame oil as sesame oil is from seeds - not allowed)
Take 2 egg whites, 1 cup shredded cheese (I like provolone but you can use whatever you can eat), 1/2 tsp garlic powder, pinch of salt, trace of black pepper (if you can tolerate). Froth the eggs, then add everything else and mix together.
Take one onion finely chopped, 1/2 bag fresh spinach, pinch of salt, 2-3 finely chopped garlic cloves (or powder if you like) ... sauté all in olive oil till soft. Mix this in with the egg and cheese mixture. Brown 6-8 slices of bread under the grill (cut off the crusts if you like). Turn over bread and spread mixture on (not too thick or the bread will burn before your egg has cooked). Grill till brown.
Jeanne's Irish Soda Bread
4 cups whole wheat flour (or regular unbleached wheat flour)
3 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
1/3 cup butter
1 1/4 cups raisins or currants (I skip this ingredient because of sugars)
1 egg, beaten
1 3/4 cups buttermilk or
1 1/2 cups plain yogurt and 1/4 cup milk
1 tablespoon honey or molasses ( I use a scant amount of honey although you can skip this too)
Combine flour, baking powder, soda and salt. Cut in butter until it reaches a coarse meal consistency. Add raisins. Combine liquids separately. Add to dry ingredients. Mix until soft dough forms. Knead gently until smooth (about a minute). Then you can either shape into 2 balls or put the entire mixture into a loaf pan. If using the balls - flatten slightly and cut an X 1/4" deep in the tops with sharp knife or scissors. For the loaf pan cut an X into the top of the loaf. Place on greased cookie sheet, or in case of loaf just place in oven, and bake at 375 degrees. 35 min. for the two rounds or about an hour to 1hr 15 min. for the loaf.
This recipe is from "Whole Foods for the Whole Family" LaLeche League International Cookbook. Make sure it is cool before you slice it. It is rather difficult to slice so I cut it a little thicker. It toasts really
well. Just don't forget to add the butter to the ingredients as it makes
the crust easy to chew.
Jeanne's Buttermilk Biscuits
2 cup flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. soda
1/3 cup vegetable oil
2/3 cup buttermilk
Heat oven to 450 degrees. Mix dry ingredients well in bowl. Pour oil and milk into measuring cup (do not stir together). Pour all at once into flour. Stir with fork until mixture cleans sides of bowl and forms a ball.
Knead until dough looks smooth (careful not to overdo it). Pat or roll about 1/2" thick. Cut with unfloured biscuit cutter. Place on ungreased baking sheet. Bake 10 to 12 min., or until golden brown. Makes 16 medium biscuits.
I use a hamburger press to cut out hamburger bun size biscuits to have with sandwiches or burgers.
Carolyn's Spinach and Mozzarella Rolls
These rolls are reminiscent of pizzeria fare.
For the stuffing:
1 lb. baby spinach
several garlic cloves, minced
mozzarella, thinly sliced
For the rolls:
3 cups whole wheat flour
4 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1 1/2 cup spring water
1/4 cup olive oil
To make the stuffing, heat a small amount of olive oil over medium heat. Add garlic and sauté until lightly browned; add spinach (working in batches, if necessary), and sauté until wilted. Sprinkle with salt, and set aside.
To make the rolls, mix flour, baking powder, and salt in a bowl. In a separate bowl, combine the spring water and the olive oil. Add the liquids to the flour mixture, and mix with a spoon or with your hands until a ball is formed.
Using a rolling pin, roll a handful of dough into a circle. Top with some spinach and mozzarella slices, and roll up, sealing the seam with your fingers. Continue until all dough is gone.
Lay rolls on a non-stick baking sheet, and bake at 350F until rolls are firm or starting to brown, about 30 minutes.
Rita's Kamut/Spelt Bread
1 cup Kamut flour
1 cup Spelt flour
1 tbsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/3 cup canola oil
3/4 cup + 1 tbsp water
Mix try ingredients, add oil, water and egg. Stir until just blended. Pour into a greased pan (I use a 9" pie pan or 9" cake pan or muffin cups )makes about 8 muffins). Bake at 400 degrees, about 20-25 minutes.
Barb's Grilled Cheese Sandwiches
I use the spelt/kamut bread recipe that Rita gave us made in a cake pan.
I split one slice of the bread in half lengthwise then put a small amount of olive oil into a nonstick skillet and put in one half of the slice. Then I put in cheese (I like provolone) on the slice and then top it with the other half slice of bread. I grill it until the bread is brown on both sides and the cheese is melted. It is so yummy.
Rita's Spelt Tortillas
2 1/2 cups spelt flour
1/2 tsp. salt
2 tbsp melted butter
10 tbsp. water
Mix flour and salt together. Mix butter and water, then stir into dry ingredients until just mixed. Scoop it up in hands and shape into a ball. Knead it for 2 or 3 minutes. Cover with a damp cloth and let it rest for 30 minutes - very important, as letting it rest will make it easier to roll out. Divide dough into 8 pieces. Flatten a little with your hand, then roll each piece out on a lightly floured board, flipping over every few strokes. Cook in an ungreased, hot frying pan on each side. Mine turned out the best when I used medium/high heat. Tip: lift up edge of tortilla, and if the underside is bubbly and lightly browned, it is ready to turn.
Conversion for other flours:
Whole wheat 2 cups ( I haven't tried this one)
Kamut 2 cups - very good
Millet 1 cup millet and 1 cup whole wheat (I haven't tried this one)
Michelle's Rice Flour Bread
3 cups brown rice flour
4 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1 1/2 cup water
1/4 cup olive or canola oil (you can use melted butter here)
Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees. Mix dry ingredients in one bowl and liquid ingredients in another. Then pour the liquid into the dry and mix together. I then form the dough into small, round biscuits and put them on a cookie sheet. Bake for 40 minutes. They are very crumbly biscuits) not like real bread. Pop in oven for one minute before eating.
2 cups spelt flour
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 cup canola oil
1/2 cup water
Combine the flour, salt and baking soda. Add oil until it is thoroughly mixed in to form small crumbs. Add water two tbs. at a time, mixing well after each addition. Knead the dough on a lightly floured board for 1-2 minutes. Divide the dough in half and roll each half out on an oiled baking sheet with an oiled rolling pin to about 10" by 14" rectangle. The dough should be very thin, about 1/16" to 1/18" thick. Cut the dough in 2" squares and prick each square 3 times with a fork. Sprinkle with additional salt if desired. Bake at 350 degrees 10-15 minutes. Turn over for 5 minutes more. Makes 2-3 dozen wafers.
Nicole's Rye Pancakes
2 cups rye flour
1 tsp baking soda
3 tbs. canola oil
2 1/4 cups water
Mix together the flour and baking soda. Combine the oil and water and stir them into the flour mixture with a wire whisk, adding a few more tbs. water to make thinner. (This batter may thicken as it stands and may require the addition of more water after some of the pancakes have been cooked). Heat a lightly oiled griddle over medium heat and pour batter. Cook until dry around the edges and flip.
Nicole's Burger "Buns"
There is something about the yeast-free bread on a sandwich that just does not cut it. I had the idea of making pancakes for a bun. They are soft and they don't crumble apart. Here is what I did:
1 cup spelt flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 cup water
1 tbsp melted butter
Whisk together. Grease pan with canola oil. I use a spray between pancakes. Pour mixture into pan. Sprinkle with garlic and onion powder. Let bubble until it creates a crust wall then flip. This makes about 6 pancakes. I like to make them ahead of time and heat them in the oven while I make the burger, but ifyou can't wait you can do both. I put garlic powder, salt, pepper and onion powder in the burger too, then grill. For a topping I used some butter and avocado. I mashed in a bowl and spread it on the pancake. You can also melt your choice of cheese on the burger. This was good. I served it up with a side salad or grilled summer squash. For those of you wanting to gain weight, here it is. It is so fattening and filling you are found to feel full after.
1 tsp. salt
4 cups flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 1/2 cups warm water
1 egg (beaten)
Mix dry ingredients together. Add water. Mix together until dough forms into a ball. Divide into golf ball-sized balls. Roll until about 12 inches long. Shape into pretzel form. Lay on cookie sheet. (Iused an air bake cookie sheet). Brush with egg and sprinkle with salt. Bake about 15-20 minutes until golden brown at 425 degrees. Makes about 24 pretzels.
Catherine's Bruschetta Bread

3/4 teaspoons sea salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
2 bay leaves
2 lbs. beef - cubed
2 medium onions - chopped
2 tablespoons oil
2 cans beef broth
3/4 cup water
1 teaspoon thyme
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder (or fresh minced)

Julie's Eggs Benedict
3 egg yolks
Melted butter (clarified)
*(This is tricky. You have to whisk it under very low heat. Lemon juice is added, but not for us).
1 poached egg.
Boil water, and take the pan off the burner. then when the water is resting, drop the egg in gently and let it sit off 4-5 minutes. Remove it and trip any "strings" off the egg.
1 piece of toasted spelt
Place poached egg on top of the spelt toast. Pour your hollandaise on top and bon appetit.
Michelle's Potato Rice Sponge Bread
6 large eggs, separated
3/4 cup potato starch
1/2 cup brown rice flour
1 tsp salt
2 tsp baking powder
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a bread pan with canola, olive oil or butter. Separate eggs. In large bowl, beat egg whites until mounds form. In another bowl, beat egg yolks until light, creamy and fluffy (about 4-5 minutes at high speed). Then sift together the flour, salt and baking powder in a separate bowl. Sprinkle about 1/3 of the flour mixture over the egg whites and fold together gently until well mixed. Repeat this 2 ore times until you are out of flour. Carefully6 fold beaten egg yolks into flour mixture until well blended. Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake 45-50 minutes. Cool a while before removing from pan. Yield = 1 loaf.
This bread is really good with a lot of butter and is not quite as many carbs per slice because of the eggs

Madeleine's Spring Cabbage Snack
Cut into strips and deep fry for few seconds until hard and crispy. A little greasy but just like the crispy seaweed you get in Chinese restaurants..
Jane's Matzo Rolls
I had these at a seder I went to. They are delicious.
1 cup water
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup oil
1 1/2 cups matzo meal, or flour if you can't find
Bring waters, salt and oil to a quick boil in a medium saucepan. Remove from heat and add matzah meal. Stir well and return to heat for 3 minutes on low flame, stirring continuously. Remove from heat and let stand for 10 minutes. Add eggs, one at a time, and mix vigorously after each egg. Oil hands and take approximately 2 tbsp of dough. Shape into a ball. Put on a greased cookie sheet. Bake at 400 degrees for about 40 minutes or until nicely brown.
Gayla's Spinach and Zucchini Frittata
Butter and /or olive oil
An entire bunch of spinach
Preheat your oven to 325-350 degrees.
Lightly beat 8 eggs. Add a pinch of salt. You could also beat in herbs like basil or dill.
Wash spinach and flash wilt in a pan and a bit of water. I'm not sure if this is necessary but I wasn't sure so I went ahead. Use a large fry pan without a plastic handle. Something that can be put in the oven. Add a bit of butter or oil and fry your zucchini lightly on a medium low heat until they are soft. My heat was too high and this resulted in my frittata having a crust that was too dark. Add your spinach followed by the egg mix. I whisked mine around in the pan very lightly just to spread the spinach out evenly. Cook in the pan for about 3-5 minutes. I then added a light sprinkle of cheese. Transfer to your preheated oven and cook anywhere from 10-15 minutes until egg is cooked through. Remove from oven and run a knife around the edge to loosen it up. Place a large plate over-top and flip. Serve with a piece of spelt bread, a large salad, veggies etc.
Teresa's Hot Pockets
3 cups of flour
1 tsp baking powder
Roll it out pretty thin
Mix just enough water in to make a nice dough.
Green peppers, onions, your choice of meat. I use chicken and shrimp. Just whatever I have. You put this mixture on the dough. Then you add mozzarella or provolone cheese to the filling and roll it up. Put a little olive oil on each one. Bake at 350 until they are done. You can use whatever veggies you can have. I just like using these. They are really yummy.
