Hello Everyone in Nancyland,
I just wanted to let everyone know that Arlene/Mo Oatmeal-Sunflower Bread recipe is delicious. We will be making it again. Arlene if you have any other bread recipes I would love to see them. I am sending in a wonderful Cinnamon Raisin Bread Recipe that my husband makes. I have never tasted a Raisin Bread that is so good. The crust is crunchy and it is absolutely delicious toasted with butter.

Cinnamon Raisin Bread [2 lb loaf]:Recipe

I make the dough in the bread machine, but use the oven for the final rise and cooking the bread.

Ingredients (in order they should be put in the bread machine pan):
1cups water
1˝ tsp salt
3 TBSP vegetable oil
4 cups white flour (I use 3 cups of unbleached white bread flour and 1cup of whole wheat flour)
1/3 cup skim milk powder
4 TBSP packed brown sugar
1˝ tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp active dry yeast
1˝ cups golden seedless raisins

Set machine to <Basic Dough>. Proof the dough in the oven for 50 minutes. When this is complete, preheat oven to 350 degrees F and cook the loaf for 45 minutes.

I made the Peach BBQ Sauce and used it on chicken. It was very good and the chicken had a great taste to it.

Two months ago I adopted a young cat from the local shelter. Since then I have seen her once, briefly.

I have set up a secluded bed with several toys in front. Also a bowl of food in my upstairs bedroom in an attempt to tempt her.

Although I don't get to see her she gives me pleasure. She does cute things with her toys like collecting them and putting them in line on her bed. One night she just took the blanket and covered them.

Anyone have ideas how to make her feel secure enough to come out? I've tried only putting food out during the day and she went hungry 2 1/2 days before I gave in.

Nancy I read sometime back that when the lights go out to bring in a solar light from outside and surround it with something to hold it up and you have light. Also there was something about using two bricks and put several of tea lights between them, then across the top place aluminum foil and you can warm food. Someone else might be able to add more idea's in what to do in case of power failure.
Thanks Nancy and God Bless You.

Many years ago a friend (Gaye Chapman) gave me this recipe. She used drumsticks when she made it, and I first started using thighs, but now I use breasts to make it. It is a family favorite, and I like it because I can prepare it on Saturday night, let it marinate overnight, and then just bake it when I get ready for lunch the next day.

California Chicken Recipe

Spray or grease a 9 X 13 pan, and in it combine the following:
6 oz. frozen orange juice concentrate, undiluted
2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
4 tsp. soy sauce
2 tbsp. butter, melted (I use cooking oil)
2 tsp. ground ginger

Add chicken to fill the dish in a single layer. I always use skinless chicken. The directions say 5 lbs, but I use what I have. Marinate for several hours. Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for an hour. Baste occasionally.

For Judy in Montana. Taste of Home has these instructions for converting bread machine recipes to be made by hand. I only use the bread machine to make the dough, then I shape it, and put in a loaf pan for the last rise. I usually bake mine at 350 degrees. Good luck! Arlene/Mo.

I don't own a bread machine. Could you please tell me how to make the dough for bread machine recipes without a bread machine? — J.A., Honolulu, Hawaii

I don't own a bread machine, either, but my favorite dinner roll recipe starts out in a bread machine. Any bread machine recipe can be made by hand if you follow steps common to most yeast breads. This method is for recipes using active dry yeast:

1. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water (110° to 115°).

2. If any of the following are included, add the eggs, additional liquid, sugar, honey, herbs, salt and most of the flour.

3. Beat until smooth.

4. Add enough remaining flour to form a soft dough that pulls away from the sides of the bowl.

5. On a lightly floured surface, knead dough until smooth and elastic.

6. Place in a large bowl coated with cooking spray, turning once to coat the top.

7. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled.

8. Punch dough down; shape dough, let it rise and bake as directed in the recipe.
