  1. These were great and soo easy! It didn't take long at all to whip them up. Try to dust off as much flour as possible before cooking, they tasted a little floury, other than that, better than store bought!

Raised by missionary parents and now on a missions program with my husband, I've been all over Europe, though not to every country, yet! Its been fun figuring out what I can do with the native groceries...once I've figured out what they all are:) Fortunately they don't differ too much throughout Europe. <a href="¤t=121036.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a> Hubby in Troyes, enchanting town! I am fascinated by each culture's food traditions. I always thought I was half-way brave when it came to trying out different dishes until I saw an old "Bizarre Foods - Phillippines". Wow. I haven't posted many recipes because I realised I don't measure out everything the same way each time and so don't have many recipes that are precise enough to post. I sure enjoy trying all yours! <a href="¤t=180153.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a> My husband I've been able to find EVERYthing I need here on Zaar. Where I live now, I can hardly get anything, so I have to make everything from scratch.
