I have made all of these recipes myself. I always try to show the original source of the recipe, but am constantly editing them to suit our tastes (so technically they should all say "Adapted from..."). The portions are generally small since my family doesn't consume much food in one sitting.

When searching in the categories below, don't forget to click on "older posts" at the bottom right of the screen after scrolling through them to see more recipes in that category.

*I have recently added a $ label to show that I've calculated the price of the recipe. All prices include 3% food tax.*

Pita Bread (

$0.26 ($0.065 per pita)

2 hours. Makes 4 pita breads.

½ c + 2½ Tbsp warm water
½ Tbsp yeast
1 tsp sugar
½ tsp salt
½ Tbsp olive oil
½ c whole wheat flour
½ c + 2 Tbsp white flour

Pour warm water, yeast and sugar in a mixer. Let sit until bubbly. Add remaining ingredients and mix for 3 min. Rise 1 hour.* Divide dough into 4 equal portions and roll into rounds. Cover and rise 14 min. Bake at 500° on a dry, preheated, stone or cookie sheet for 4 minutes or until slightly golden brown. (There is no need to bake both sides.) Remove and wrap in a clean dishtowel to retain softness. When ready to stuff, cut the pita in half and fill with your favorite fillings. Enjoy! (Fill with anything. Humus is great-chickpeas, garlic & lemon juice.)
