Back in 1996 I was using powdered milk in quite a bit of baking. Haven’t done that for years. Just use milk in place of water.

Also, I don’t usually have corn syrup in the house. Honey or sugar replaces that. I warm the milk to about 110F.

Here is another recipe (not sure where I got it from).

One of our favourite muffins. I usually double the recipe and make either 16 extra large or 20 large muffins. I use silicon muffins cupcake forms in metal muffin tins. Easy clean up there!

Elbert says "Naan bread is delicious and chewy." Hope it works for you!

I was weeding the flower bed by the mint patch and remembered this delicious salad. I thought I'd share the recipe. (Best to make it just before eating it)

After enjoying naan bread at the Berkelaars I decided to try to make some.

We like it a lot.  Instead of a grill as the recipe suggested, I use our teflon electric skillet and like the way the bread turns out.

Makes about 20 pancake sized breads.

From an advertisement in the November 2009 issue of Homemaker's magazine. I've had several people ask for this recipe one of whom is Elbert.  Here is the recipe. This recipe fits in an 8 inch square pan.  I like to double the recipe and then bake it in a glass 10X13 inch pan.

I found this recipe in some magazine and we like it.  Please note that the tube pan should not have the removeable bottom!  I tried it in an angel food cake pan once with disasterous results as the honey sauce leaked out - what a mess. It also fits into two regular bread loaf pans.  When cooled, slice and serve with butter.

Sometimes, I put the dough, with the honey sauce, into a pan as regular cinnamon rolls

"This the beet soup recipe from Pat & Mel. We had sour cream as a garnish there and I used yogurt here. Both were good." -Mom

This is a really tasty way to eat the greens!

Buns or Bread (Basic)

I've been making it into 24 buns most of the time, but it is a recipe for 2 loaves of bread.

Potato-Tomato Gratin

I found this recipe in Aug/Sept 98 Canadian Gardening magazine; whenever I am leafing through magazines the recipes always catch my eye.  It seemed like an odd combination to have tomatoes and potatoes together but we find it quite tasty.

We enjoyed it for supper tonight.

Preheat oven to 350 F

Grease a 9X5 inch loaf pan  ( or spray with vegetable cooking spray)

In a medium bowl, combine:

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp ground cloves

Mix well with a wooden spoon

In a large bowl, combine:

1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup unsweetened applesauce
3 Tbsp. canola oil
2 large eggs

Mix well.

Add flour mixture, stirring until just combined.

Surprise Sausage Bundles

Erika made these for us during one of their visits.  They are really tasty and loved by those who enjoy sauerkraut. This recipe has inspired a sauerkraut/sausage pizza.  We'll add that recipe another time.

I usually keep this in the fridge in pint jars, and when we need some, I take some out and heat it in the microwave.
