evening/weekend sessions available by request

Sharon Stone 4½ cups all-purpose flour 4 tsp ground ginger 2 tsp baking soda 1½ tsp ground cinnamon 1 tsp ground cloves ¼ tsp sea salt 1½ cups Crisco shortening (leave it out on the counter the night before so it is not too hard) 2 cups white sugar 2 eggs ½ cup molasses ¾ cup white sugar (used to roll balls in before baking) Preheat oven to 350. In a medium bowl stir together flour, ginger, baking soda, cinnamon, cloves and salt and set aside. In a large bowl, beat shortening with an electric mixer on low speed for 30 seconds. Add the 2 cups of white sugar and beat until combined. Add eggs and molasses and beat until combined. Add in as much of the flour mixture you have set aside as you can and beat it with the mixer. Add the balance of the flour and finish it off with the bread dough attachment for the mixer or by hand. For 120 small ginger cookies, shape the dough into 1-inch balls. Roll balls in the ¾ cup of sugar. Place 1½ inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 8 to 9 minutes or until the tops are puffed and starting to crack. Don’t overbake if you want them soft. Every oven is different so cook a small amount first to see how many minutes it takes to make them the way you like them. They keep cooking a bit after you take them out of the oven so you have to allow for that too. For 24 giant ginger cookies, use ¼ cup of dough and roll into 2-inch balls. Roll in sugar and place 2½ inches apart and bake for 11 to 13 minutes or until tops are puffed and start to crack. Do not overbake.

· · · ·

2 1/2 cups whole wheat flour 1/2 cup milk powder 1 tsp sugar 1 tsp salt

· 3/8 cup melted margarine · 1 egg - beaten · 1/2 cup cold water

Mix ingredients together. Knead on floured board for 3 minutes. Form a ball. Roll 1/2 inch thick and cut. Bake at 325° F. for 45 minutes, turning once half way through. When finished baking, turn oven off and leave biscuits in to harden. * You can add to the ingredients 1 tablespoon of any of the following: Wheat germ, Liver powder, Brewer’s yeast, chicken or beef bouillon, dried soup greens and dried soup mix. A food processor works very well.

Add chicken breasts, turning to coat. Arrange in a single layer. Bake uncovered at 350 F for 45 minutes, until chicken is tender. Fry coleslaw in olive oil over medium heat 1-2 minutes until tender.

Harvest Casserole Alvina Kopf 1 small head of cabbage ½ cup rice boiling water ½ lb. side bacon cut in 1 inch pieces 1 ½ lb. ground beef ½ teaspoon hamburger seasoning ¼ teaspoon onion salt salt and pepper to taste 1 can (28 oz) tomatoes Grease large casserole or small roasting pan.

Royal Chicken Wings Terry Green 3 lbs (about 1.5 kg) chicken wings ½ cup honey ¼ cup soya sauce 1 garlic clove crushed

“The best

1 tbsp ketchup Preheat oven to 350 F. Cut wings at joint (remove tips if desired). Arrange wings in shallow baking pan, either greased or coated with PAM. Combine rest of ingredients (may need to microwave briefly to make it runnier) and pour over chicken wings. Bake in oven for 1 hour, basting frequently (every 15 minutes or so). Suggest serving with rice topped with excess sauce. Note: The original recipe called for brushing wings lightly with oil before pouring sauce over but that isn’t necessary. If there isn’t enough excess sauce to pour over rice, next time increase amounts of sauce ingredients.

Almond Chocolate Cherry Muffin Cakes Joan Walker 2 1/3 cups all-purpose flour ½ cup milk 1 ¼ cups white sugar 1/3 cup vegetable oil 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa 2 eggs, beaten 2 tsp baking powder 1 tsp almond extract 1 ½ cups fresh, dark, sweet cherries, pitted, chopped 1 tsp baking soda ½ tsp salt 1 cup sour cream 1 cup miniature semi-sweet chocolate chips Preheat oven to 350 F. Line average size muffin tins with paper muffin cups or grease them. You should get about 24 muffins if you fill them ¾ full. Stir together the flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt in a separate large bowl. Make a well in the centre; set aside. Whisk together the sour cream, milk, vegetable oil, eggs and almond extract in a bowl until evenly blended. Pour the sour cream mixture into the well, then stir in the flour mixture until

Page 3 just combined. Fold in the cherries and chocolate chips. Spoon into prepared muffin cups. Bake until a toothpick inserted into centres comes clean, about 20 minutes. Cool pan on wire rack 5 minutes. Store tightly covered at room temperature. Cake comes out of the cups clean if you use parchment paper ones. Adding chocolate chips to dry ingredients, cherries to wet ones before mixing the two keeps everything from dropping to the bottom while baking with less chance of burning on the bottom. Frozen cherries work okay and these muffin cakes freeze well too.

They will absorb all the liquid. Soak the coconut in the milk overnight. In the morning, mix all the fruit in a bowl and toss with 1 cup of the measured flour. Cream the margarine and sugars. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each. Resift the remaining flour with the baking powder and salt. Add alternately to the creamed mixture with the milk-soaked coconut. Add flavorings. This makes a large oblong cake 12 x 7 x 3 inches or it can be baked in the largest Christmas cake tin. Line tin with 3 thicknesses of brown paper or ungreased foil. Bake in a preheated 275 F oven. The oblong cake bakes exactly 3 hours but the square one takes a little longer to bake as the distance from sides to center is greater. Test for doneness. This cake can be cut the next day but it is a good keeper too.

Pecan Squares Edna Barisoff

Crust 1 cup cold butter 6 tbsp brown sugar 3 cups flour 1 egg 1 tsp lemon juice 3 cups whole pecans

Filling 1 cup butter 2/3 cup honey 1 cup brown sugar 4 tbsp whipping cream Mix butter, sugar, flour, egg and lemon juice in a food processor or heavy duty mixer. Mix until mixture just begins to hold together. Press into a 9 by 13 inch pan and bake at 350 for about 15 minutes or until golden brown. Arrange whole pecans on top of prepared crust. To prepare the filling, melt together the butter, honey and sugar in a saucepan. Allow to boil for five to seven minutes, stirring constantly. Do not take your eyes off it because you do not want it to burn. Remove from heat and add the cream. Drizzle the filling over the pecans until completely covered. Return to the oven and bake for 20 minutes. When cool, cut into squares.
