Have I discovered the secret to marital bliss?

Matt and I have long struggled with the white flour vs. whole wheat flour issue. He prefers white; I prefer wheat. (Well, to be honest, I like both just fine but since whole wheat is so much healthier, I try to eat that most of the time.) Lately I've heard white whole wheat flour mentioned on several other blogs so I thought I'd check it out. I baked my first loaf of bread today (I'll try to post a picture tomorrow when there is some daylight so I can take a decent photograph), and I really like it. It didn't turn out as light as all purpose 'white' flour, but lighter and fluffier than whole wheat. We'll have to wait and see what Matt thinks of it tomorrow. I also made some cookies with it that turned out great (again, will try to post pics tomorrow). Apparently this type of flour is made from a lighter colored type of wheat with a softer outer layer, but it is still a whole grain, with all the health benefits that go along with that.

(That's the white whole wheat on the left and traditional whole wheat on the right.)

Don't get too excited, Mr. Anonymous. Most will be frozen to take to the craft show for refreshments.

The secret to marital bliss could be ample supplies of cookies.

You two make me laugh. This sounds interesting. Was the white whole wheat flour easy to find?

Yes, they have it at Eureka Natural Foods, or you can mail order it through the link in the blog post.
