My Tuesday Twister posts are my weekly round-up of what’s going on in my kitchen and our lives, as it pertains to real food. So here we go – I’ll catch you up on what’s twisting in my kitchen this week!

- Water Kefir – It turned out fantastic! Pictured is first variety we tried – I added grape juice. I also tried another batch with dates and vanilla, and that was super good, too. This is so fun to do! The second picture shows an eggshell in a beginning batch, which is a tip I picked up from Ann Marie @ Cheeseslave. The bubble factor increased by leaps and bounds with the addition of the egg shell.
- Simple Black Bean Chili – Just one of the yummy stews/soups we’ve enjoyed over the past week. I’m so in the mood for stews. Plus, I’ve decided that we are going to be having ALOT of nutrient-rich broths this fall and winter. This chili didn’t have a broth base, but three of the other stews we enjoyed did.
- Working on Homemade Pizza – The crust was great, made from sourdough spelt dough. The rest could use some work – but it was fun to do and I have another crust in the freezer to try again this week.
- Sprouted Spelt Lemon Cake – An old favorite – made to celebrate the birthday of a friend’s daughter. My husband, who is a rich chocolate cake lover, loves this cake more than chocolate. Isn’t that weird? But this cake is really, really, really, really, really good. I mean it!
- Chocolate Sourdough Cake – This was an experiment, because I made over an unhealthy recipe. It turned out awesome! We’ll be making it again and again. Made for a friend’s son’s birthday.
- Spelt Sourdough Rolls – From the sourdough spelt dough, I made rolls to go with a few soups this week. They were warm, tasty and chewy.
- Soaked Kamut Pasta – We all loved these noodles, which I served with the chicken soup (next item).
- Chicken Noodle Soup – I took the bones of two chickens, water, and a cup of raw apple cider vinegar, and made homemade broth. Then I added back diced onions and garlic, chicken meat and seasonings – salt, pepper, turmeric, ginger, and parsley. This was the best chicken soup we’ve ever had. The noodles and the rolls made it all the better, too!
