Flour: All-purpose flour is the most widely used flour. It contains a
special protein called gluten the structure builder of bread. When
mixed with liquid and kneaded or beaten, the gluten stretches and
gives elasticity to the dough by trapping bubbles of gas formed by
the yeast. Some flours, such as rye and whole wheat, lack sufficient
gluten and usually are used in combination with all-purpose flour.
Self rising flour, which already contains leavening and salt, is not
often recommended for yeast breads. However, all recipes were tested
with self rising flour; adjustments are indicated when necessary.

Yeast: Yeast is a live plant that gives off a gas that makes dough
rise: It is very sensitive-too much heat will kill it, but cold will
stunt its growth. Yeast is available in several forms: regular active
dry yeast, quick-acting active dry yeast and compressed yeast. All of
our recipes have been tested with dry yeast. Most of the recipes
follow the traditional method of dissolving the yeast in warm water
(105 to 115F). However, some recipes yield better results by mixing
the yeast with the flour, then beating in very warm water (120 to

Liquids: Water or milk are the most commonly used liquids. Water gives
bread a crisper crust; milk, a velvety texture and added nutrients.

Sweeteners: Sugar, honey or molasses provide "food" for the yeast,
enhance flavor and help brown the crust.

Salt: A flavor agent that is needed to control the growth of the
yeast and prevent overrising, which can cause the bread to collapse.

Fat: Added to contribute to tenderness and flavor.

Eggs: For flavor, richness and color, eggs are sometimes added.

Food Tips of the Week

A few tips on healthy eating

In planning a diet, the important thing is to also endeavour to restrict your ingestion of refined carbohydrates, salt and fats.
Some lower carb diet pointers:
* Use splenda instead of sugar. Most recipes that require sugar can be adapted to make use of a good substitute like splenda. It is not exactly the same so you will need to experiment a little and it might not work in every case, but it does bake up nice once you have it cracked.

Wonder foods with carotenes
(includes carrots, collard greens and sweet potatoes)
These amazing healthy superfoods contain alpha-carotene and beta-carotene thought by many play a key part in cancer prevention, particularly those cancers involving the lungs. The majority of these are low in calories, so make sure you add them to your diet.
