Whenever my husband has to fill out my occupation on paperwork he writes in "domestic goddess". 

If only that were true.

Our house is usually picked up but rarely clean.

I throw out food every week (because it has gone rotten) because I didn't make all the meals I intended to.

I could honestly stay in my workout clothes all day.

I think you are getting a clear picture here that a "domestic goddess" I am not.

I would like to pat myself on the back because I was making dinner the other night and I had MEANT to make fresh bread that day to go with dinner.

What do you do when you are an hour from dinner and want fresh, homemade bread???

You cheat!


I found this incredible bread recipe that allowed me to make homemade, whole wheat bread for my family and it doesn't need to rise and be kneaded!

This bread is fabulous and everyone loved it!!!

I will not tell you how many pieces I ate with tons of butter and honey…I won't…don't even try to ask!!!

Because I love you all and I want your husbands to think you are a DOMESTIC GODDESS too.. I will share the recipe.

Enjoy (with lots of butter and honey).


  • Ingredients
  • 2 Tsp. honey
  • 2 2/3 Cup lukewarm water
  • 4 Tsp. dry yeast
  • 3 Tbsp. Molasses
  • 5 Cups whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 Tsp. salt
  • 1/4 Cup wheat germ
  • 1 Tbsp. Oatmeal (optional)

    (I didn't have molasses on hand so I used only honey)

    1. Preheat oven to 400 Degrees F.
    2. Stir 2 teaspoons honey into 2/3 cup lukewarm water
    3. Sprinkle yeast over the mixture. Set aside for 10 minutes.
    4. Combine 3 tablespoons molasses with 2/3 cup warm water and combine with yeast
    5. Stir into flour.  Add salt, wheat germ and 1 1/2 cups warm water. Dough will be sticky.
    6. Pour dough into bread pan (I sprayed mine to prevent sticking) and smooth top with wet spatula. Sprinkle oatmeal over the top.
    7. Allow the dough to rise to top of pan (only takes about 15 minutes)
    8. Bake at 400 degrees for 30-40 minutes.  Let cool.
