I’ve been enjoying making food truly “from scratch” for my family – something I rarely get to do from August – May. August through May is all about shortcuts and getting dinner on the table quickly!!
Chocolate Chip Cookies
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 large eggs
2 cups (12-oz. pkg.) Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels
1 cup chopped nuts (optional)
Bake at 375 degrees for 9 minutes.
41/2 C of oats, 1C flour, 1 tsp. baking soda, 1 tsp. vanilla, 2/3 C butter melted, 1/2C honey, 1/3 C brown sugar
Whatever else you want: chocolate chips, coconut, nuts, dried fruit, etc. I used dried cranberries, coconut and choc. chips.
Press in greased 9×12 pan. Bake at 325 degrees for 18-22 min. Let cool before cutting.
A Good Basic Bread Machine Dinner Roll Recipe
1 cup warm water (110 degrees F/45 C), 2 T white sugar, 2 1/2 tsp. yeast, 1/4C vegetable oil, 3C flour, 1 tsp. salt
Microwave water a minute and 30 sec. put water, sugar and yeast in bread machine. Allow yeast to begin to foam for 10 minutes. Add flour, oil and salt. Run machine on “Dough” mode. When timer goes off, knead dough ball for a few minutes. Bread into little balls and roll in slightly greased hands. Place dough balls on greased cookie sheet. Place in a warm place (I preheat my oven to 170, then turn it off and put the dough in.) Allow dough balls to rise again for about 30 minutes. Turn oven to 350 and bake until lightly browned – about 20 minutes. Enjoy with REAL Butter!
**I know that the tortilla chip thing is not from scratch, but thought I’d share anyway. Have a great day!
