It was Dia de los Muertos, so I made some dead bread and a video. Unfortunately, Sylvia Ji didn’t make it to dinner 😉

Dia de los Muertos!

I am obsessed with the art of Sylvia Ji.I am equally obsessed with watching make up videos on youtube. When petrilude’s Sugary Sylvia tutorial ended up in my subscription box, I let out an audible squeal of delight. And then I made some bread and a video.

I am a glutton. Why else would I plan a two city trip just to indulge my voracious appetite? At breakfast, I’m thinking about lunch. At lunch, I’m dreaming of happy hour. And by the time toddy hour rolls around, I’m plotting a full scale attack on dinner and dessert. Shameless…delicious.

Easy Homemade Wheat Thins


Adapted from Tracey’s Culinary Adventures. Original recipe from King Arthur’s Cookbook.

Yield: ~60-ish crackers

Ingredients: 

            1 1/4 cups (5 oz) 100% whole wheat flour

            2 tablespoons sugar

            1/2 teaspoon salt

            1/4 teaspoon paprika

            4 tablespoons Earth Balance

            1/4 cup + 2 tbsp water (or a tiny bit more if dough is too dry)

            1/4 teaspoon vanilla

             * optional sesame seeds or seasoned salt 

Directions: 

1. Preheat oven to 400 F.  Line two baking sheets with parchment paper 

 2. In a large bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients (flour, sugar, paprika, salt).

3. With a pastry blender (or two forks), cut in the Earth Balance into the flour mixture until crumbly. Now mix together the water and vanilla and then pour into the flour and Earth balance mixture. Stir this mixture until it comes together.If it appears dry add a touch of water, but you don’t want it sticky.

4.  On a floured surface, roll ou the dough very thin (1/16th inch). Using a pizza cutter, or sharp knife. Using a splatula, place the crackers on the prepared baking sheet.  Sprinkle with more salt and sesame seeds if desired.

5. Bake for 8-10 minutes, watching closely. Half way through baking rotate the pan to ensure even baking.Be careful because they burn quickly. Cool completely. Makes about 60 crackers for this full recipe. Store in an air-tight container.


Inspired by the delicious Thai Coffee I had today, I’m making my own soy condensed milk. I make my own milk from whole soybeans in the Vitamix and will sweeten with stevia instead of sugar.
