on saturday, i arrived home from youth conference at about 11 and was picked up at the dock to take our first trip in dad's new boat. g-man was a great sport, and only cried when ryne jumped in the water :) After boating, we stopped by the parade, and took advantage of the endless amounts of candy tossed at our feet.
this has got to be the favorite for all the men in the household...
and the best part is? it's so easy to make, and tastes delicious.
½ cup butter ¾ cup sugar 2 squares unsweetened chocolate (melt in microwave) 2 eggs 1 cup whipping cream (whipped) 1-9" pie shell
Cream butter and sugar, stir in melted chocolate. Add 1 egg and beat for 5 minutes. Add 2nd egg and beat for 5 minutes. Fold whipping cream into chocolate mixture and place in pie shell. Chill for 2 hours. (Todd likes graham cracker crust).
ever started something, and found that you've done nothing in maybe...months??
that's how it's been with my mom's recipe book.
thankfully, i'm finally making some sort of progress, and want to share!
this is the beginning of some of my favorite recipes.
Homemade Bread Recipe
From start to finish in one hour
10 ½ cups white bread flour or Wheat Flour (do not use all-purpose flour)
½ cup sugar
1/3 cup honey
1 Tablespoon salt
3 rounded Tablespoons saf-instant yeast (Macey's Alison's Pantry, Bosch) it if all wheat
4 cups of hot tap water- as hot as we can get out of the tap- not boiling. Don't dump water in all at once.
Mix dry ingredients. *Add lecithin and water. Mix for 1 minute and check consistency. If dough is too dry, add more water. Dough should be very sticky. Mix for 5 minutes. (Do not add flour to the dough after it has finished mixing). Spray counter and pans with Pam. Shape loaves and cover with a dish towel. Let raise 25 minutes. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes. This recipe makes four loaves.
*Squeeze or pour approximately 3 Tablespoons of lecithin directly into the bowl. Do not measure.
For whole wheat bread, use the same recipe but add one cup of applesauce as part of the hot tap water and 1 additional Tablespoon lecithin. Mix for ten minutes.
