Collin’s quick and easy whole wheat bread is thee perfect sandwich bread! Nutritiously soft, light and…IT’S SO FLUFFY!

Don’t you just love hair dressers? They are great therapy!

I have the best hairdresser…Collin.

Collin has cut my hair for over ten years and we’ve become fast friends. He makes me laugh…not just a small giggle…but you know, that kind of laugh that comes deep from the belly and where you feel like you can’t catch your breath kind of laugh? That’s my Collin. And he’s been through everything with me and he still wants to cut my hair knowing just how dysFUNctional I am.

I look forward to our monthly chats as I sit in his chair and drive him crazy when I say “cut it all off” (after two years of painstakingly growing my hair out). Luckily, SOMEONE has some senses–which would be Collin–who brings me back to reality and talks me into something a little less drastic before I later regret my actions.

Collin is a fantastic cook and always has my mouth drooling with the latest dishes he and his spouse have been cooking. One such recipe is Collin’s quick and easy whole wheat bread. He’s made it so many times that when I asked him to bring me the recipe, he clicked it right off his tongue and I was like a puppy wagging my tail in delight to get home and try it out.

  1. I’m trying the recipe right now. It looks delicious and I have baked bread for years. My husband has recently been put on a low sodium diet for his heart so I had to try it without the salt. I only added 1 tsp. to the batch. I’m praying it turns out well.

  2. I’d love to try this recipe. Is it still available?

  3. can I skip the wheat gluten?

    • Good question Rosann. Whenever you substitute whole-wheat flour for all of the white flour, it’s best to add wheat gluten because the bran contained in whole-wheat flour cuts through gluten and weakens the structure of the bread. The vital wheat gluten helps restore some of that lost structure. I hope that answers your question.

    Hi! Would I look for wheat gluten in the bakery section? I’ve never heard of it before.
