This mixture is from the late and very missed Barbara Tropp. This is the curry powder I use for everything from curried tuna-fish sandwiches to Indian curries. Very easy, and the difference in flavor that it has from store-bought is miles...
Capturing yeast spores is an ancient process. See if you can "trap" your own using potato water. Uses: Take one cup of starter and add to your favorite pancake recipe. Sour Dough Buckwheat waffles...Use a cup of starter in place of 2 pgks of yeast in your bread recipe.
This is a cookie mix I make every Christmas. When time is at a premium...being prepared is always a good thing. I got this from a Christmas edition of Pillsbury's Cookbook. Using the baking mix you can make several different cookies for your Christmas cookie trays. The beauty of this is you have the mix in the refrigerator to use whenever you have short time to whip up a lovely cookie!
I will add the cookie recipes asap.

A spectacular garden summer treat that is very healthy and delicious. Blackberries are preferred, but you can use any typ berries. Using honey keeps it clean eating, but you can opt for sugar or Splenda if you prefer.
From a French children's book I just bought. Saw this, went in the kitchen and made it immediately, it took about 5 minutes. My French husband says it is better than Nutella. It is grittier, because I couldn't figure out how it to get it really smooth, but it tastes great. Makes enough to exactly fill one French Bonne Maman jam jar.
Make a six month supply of bread crumbs for the cost of 2 loaves of bread and a cup of butter. And they taste better than the store-bought version. I've used this recipe for 15 years and have no idea where it came from. The yield of course, will depend on the size of the loaves you use.
For some extremely peculiar reason, there is no root beer available where I live, but there is McCormick's root beer concentrate. I scoured the world to find a recipe and here it is. It's not exactly A&W, but as close as you can get to the real thing, if you can't get the real thing.
I love this recipe because it's simple and easy and it costs only pennies to make compared to buying it in the store. I make all my Christmas candy with this that calls for sweetened condensed milk.
Makes 1 1/3 cups or 10 oz.
