We are looking to purchase a grain mill to take down to Guatemala with us. We need a reliable one that mills wheat to fine flour for bread. Right now, we are borrowing one from some friends of ours, and it works very well. It's a Whisper Mill (I think the company is Wonder Mill now). Any comments about this machine? Are there any others you might recommend? I appreciate your comments! Sis Tammy

I have a Whisper Mill and really enjoy how fast it grinds the wheat. The only negative thing that I have discovered is that it doesn't like to grind up Flax seeds. A small amount in a mixed grain is fine, but if you put a lot in it clogs it up. Once I discovered that -- and read the manual (LOL) I use my hand grinder for the flax seeds if needed.
What a beautiful family you have!! God Bless Donna

If I could just make a loaf of bread that wasn't as heavy as a cement block it would be nice; however, right now I just get whole grain bread from the discount bread stores. I found one by Nature's Grains that is made from organic wheat and another one by Sara Lee that is a multi-grain. Of course, there are just the two of us and we don't eat a huge amount of bread. I've tried over the years to make bread, but even the bread making machines didn't work all that well for me. I suppose since we grew up with the old white Wonder type bread that the relatively light whole grain loaves from the commercial bakeries are at least a little bit of a step-up for us.
Have you ever made chapatis or tortillas that can be filled with seasoned meats, salsa, chopped avocado and lettuce, grated cheese and things like that?
