A tempura batter has a lifespan of only moments before the flour becomes too saturated with water and a fresh batter must be made.
Once you have a chocolate-chip cookie with whole-wheat flour, you never go back.

When you grow up starving, you cannot point with pride to a book you’ve just spent six hours reading. Picking cotton, sewing flour bags into clothes – those were the skills my father grew up appreciating.
I’m still not comfortable recommending that people eat saturated fat with abandon, but it’s clear to me that sugar, flour and oxidized seed oils create inflammatory effects in the body that almost certainly bear most of the responsibility for elevating heart disease risk.

I like quinoa and brown rice, and I try to do that over a lot of white flour bread, even though I love that kind of bread.

Volume can vary a ton when you’re cooking, depending on how you measure. Do you carefully spoon the flour into a measuring cup, or do you scoop with the cup? Are you using chunky Morton kosher salt, or finer Diamond Crystal? There can be a 40 percent difference in volume depending on the brand.
I’m the only one in my family who doesn’t cook, but I can do a Swiss dish called frittatensuppe. You make a thin omelet from eggs, flour and parsley, then roll and cut it in the shape of tagliatelle and add broth. It’s a tradition we adopted.

With an old broom handle, flour, water and egg you can make the most amazing pasta.
My own favorite way to cook and eat razor clams is to simply dredge them in a mix of seasoned flour and cornmeal, then pan fry them in butter until crisp and golden. Be careful not to overcook them so they stay tender, not tough and chewy.
I’ve never tasted a store-bought tortilla that compares in texture or flavor with one made by hand, so I’m happy to invest some time.

Sure, you can mix the flour, baking soda, salt, shortening, and the whole nine yards, but why wouldn’t you just pull out a box of Bisquick?
