I love to cook and would much prefer to eat something homemade then made from a box. Homemade food tastes better to me and my family and a lot of the time the meals are healthier and less expensive than their store made, processed counterparts. Make It Yourself Monday gives me a chance to experiment with some recipes that I might not have tried before.
Whole Wheat Pitas
This recipe caught my eye in my latest Cooking Light magazine. I buy pitas at the grocery store occasionally, but never considered making them. I was a little intimidated at first; the thought of making my own pitas seemed daunting to me. This recipe for whole wheat pitas was incredibly easy.
I am now hooked. I don't know if I can go back to store bought pitas. The recipe calls for two types of flours: bread and white whole wheat. I didn't have either so I did have to buy both types. You could probably use regular whole wheat flour in place of the white whole wheat if you have the regular on hand. I didn't so I bought the white whole wheat. I will definitely be making these pitas again so the flour will not go to waste.
While the pitas were baking I whipped up a batch of tuna salad and the sandwiches were delicious. My 3 year old liked her pita with some cream cheese and homemade strawberry freezer jelly. She gobbled it up and asked for another.
This recipe is definitely a keeper.
