Are you tired of hearing about awesome cookbooks you can win from us? No? Good because I have a few more to tell you about and Grain Crazy by Cherie Schetselaar and Britney Rule is a pretty neat little book. I actually came across this book through Pinterest of all places. Cherie was interested in our Grains of Discovery board and we exchanged a few comments about her love of whole grains and her new book from Familius, Grain Crazy.
That’s pretty much the perfect title to get the ear of someone at Bob’s Red Mill. After all, every single one of us at the Mill is definitely a little grain crazy.This book is perfect for the whole grain beginner. I love the recipes because they are all simple and approachable. Please don’t take that to mean they aren’t delicious. If you’re crunched on time and want to get a delicious whole grain meal on the table, this is the book for you. Each recipe is clearly written without a laundry list of ingredients, making whole grains something you can easily tackle for breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert. Recipes range from Spelt Pancakes to Asian Turkey Wraps in Lettuce in Romaine Lettuce to Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie Tart.
Familius has been generous enough to offer us a copy to share with one lucky reader. We’ll pair the book with a package of Whole Grain Barley, Whole Grain Quinoa and Whole Grain Spelt Flour.
