  • Chocolate Bundt Cake Recipe – 101 Cookbooks – Slices of this chocolate bundt cake spent the better part of the past week in the car with me. Each piece, wrapped in parchment, tucked between the Ak-Mak crackers and a jar of almond butter. It is a fine travel cake. One that can handle a day or two in the car – blizzards, bumps in the road, hairpin turns, and all. Topped with not much more than a sweep of icing, it's unfussy, and ready to go straight from the pan. I make it with a blend of whole wheat and all-purpose flours, lots of yogurt, and the darkest brown sugar I can get my hands on. And it was just the thing to unwrap on a picnic table underneath a grove of sky-scraping redwood trees.
  • Sesame Almond Brown Rice Balls Recipe – 101 Cookbooks – Makes about 2 dozen small rice balls.
  • Wheat Thins | Serious Eats : Recipes – When I was flipping through King Arthur Flour's Whole Grain Baking book, I knew I wanted to try at least one recipe that wasn't a typical loaf.
    These whole wheat crackers looked like they had a nice balance of wheat, sweet, and salty, and the result was even better than I expected. The recipe calls for no yeast, so they're quick to make—no need to wait for rising.
    What Worked: You know Wheat Thins? Well these do taste better. The store-bought crackers are usually better when topped with something, but these are snack-worthy all on their own.
    What Didn't: This makes a fairly small bowl of crackers. There are a lot of crackers in that small bowl, but they're very thin and light, so it's not a lot of cracker volume. ff you're making them for a party, you might want to double or triple the recipe.
    Suggested Tweaks: I didn't think these needed any additional salt on top, but next time I might add sesame seeds or flax seeds for both flavor and accent color.
