For our house, this does not mean, no school, but it was a nice, peaceful day!


Snow outside

After school, we decided to make up a mix for H. Easy Bake Oven, he got for christmas. He loves to bake, and he can experiment this way.



A bag of homemade chocolate cake mix for the oven for H. with instructions.

Ham and cheese Rolls

2 T. scant yeast

1 c. warm water

5 oz. warm milk (or evaporated milk)

1/4 c. sugar

2 t. salt

3 T. oil

3.5- 4 c. flour (you can use part whole wheat)

Dissolve yeast in water. Add milk, sugar, oil and salt. Add in 2 c. flour. then beat in about 1 more cup to form a soft dough. Turn out and knead until smooth with remaining flour if needed. Turn dough into a greased bowl and let rise until double.

Divide into 4 equal parts…roll into circles. Cut into 8 wedges each. On each wedge put a thin strip of cheese and thin strip of turkey ham (or other lunch meat). Roll up and let rise on greased baking tray, until doubled. Bake at 400 for 15 minutes or until golden brown.


The rolls and a loaf of Apricot Banana Bread baking….

I had a couple of half eaten bananas on the counter and a bag with just a few dried apricots in the bottom, that needed to be used up. So, in the spirit of using what I have, I threw this loaf together.

Banana Apricot Loaf

2 c. flour

1. t baking powder

1/2 t. baking soda and 1/2 t. salt

1 c. sugar (I cut in half)

1/2 c. chopped dried apricots

3/4 c. mashed banana

1/2 c. milk

1 egg

1/4 c. oil

Mix dry ingredients. Mix wet ingredients in measuring cup (making sure to mash banana well first). Mix together. Pour into a well greased loaf pan. Bake at 350 for 1 hour and 15 minutes. Let cool 10 minutes and turn out onto rack.


Waiting for the rolls to be done….my spot behind on the couch, holing up while waiting. Magazine, book and Gurney’s catalog!
