Whole Grains ? and Recipes

I have been on this list for about 6 months or so, and have gotten some 
excellent recipes. I will be adding two I have not seen here, and hope to 
share more often.

I do have a question, though. Do many of you make your own breads, pastas, 
etc? If not, do you focus on purchasing whole-grain pastas and breads, 
instead of white-flour? 

For those who don't usually have time to make their own bread, here is a kind 
of sweetish, very quick whole wheat bread, and following a half whole wheat, 
half white flour easy bread that takes 1 hr 15 min, and can be made in a 
Kitchen Aid or food processor...
