    i fixed these to go with dinner the other night. my husband loved them! he said "you could sell these!" they were also easy to prepare. i used white whole wheat flour. please note that mine took 18 minutes to bake. they were a bit dense, but otherwise great! thanks for posting. made for the bargain basement tag game.


I live outside of a small town in Missouri. I have a home based candle making business, CustomMadeSoy Candles, maybe you have seen them on eBay. I enjoy anything nature...hiking, biking and just a nice relaxing walk through the woods. I have 3 kids, 12 y/o Mathew, 15 y/o Danielle(both stepchildren, I know I am not old enough to have birthed them) and I had custody of my younger sister Sara who is now 19. I love cooking and baking and I can't stand it when people say I'm not old enough to know how to cook well. I have been cooking since I can remember and did a wonderful job feeding my sister since I was 12. Even though she is moved out and going to college, she still comes home at least once a week for some good home cookin'.
