Welcome to Home Shalom!

Welcome to Home Shalom and Shalom Farm. We pray your visit here be blessed. We are learning to walk in the Ways (Torah) of our Father YHWH and follow Y'shua, His Messiah until He returns to "set things straight". We call it a "Messi-Life". Our walk is neither tidy nor perfect, but it is filled with passion, devotion and desire to serve our King. We are learning to be humble servants, and to be good stewards of the things that He has entrusted to us: His Word, our marriage, our children, our family, our community, our health, and our farm. Hitch your horse and stay a while--our door is always open!

This recipe is taken from one of my favorite cookbooks, American Whole Food Cuisine, by Nikki and David Goldbeck. It is a wonderful mix to have on hand for Quick Corn Biscuits, Crackers, Muffins, pancakes, flat bread, fritters, or breading. You know what's in it, and if you have a mill, you can grind your own! This mix fits perfectly in a half gallon container. I like to double it and put it in a gallon jar myself. :-) It is suggested to store this in the fridge.

2C Whole Wheat Flour
2C Cornmeal

2 1/2 T Baking Powder

  • In a bowl, blender or food processor (with plastic mixing blade) combine all dry ingredients and mix well.
  • Slowly add oil, continually mixing until completely absorbed.
  • Store in a closed container in the refrigerate and mix well before each use.
