Breads & Muffins HOMEMADE FRY BREAD 1 T. yeast 1 1/2 T. granulated Sugar 1/2 tsp. Salt 1 2/3 Cup Whole Milk, scalded. Then cooled to the touch. 1 1/2 T. Butter flavored shortening 1 Egg, beaten

4 to 4 1/2 Cups Bread Flour (you may use all-purpose flour, but the measuring and texture will be slightly different) 1 1/2 Cups of Vegetable Oil, or the oil of your choice

Combine sugar, salt and yeast together. Scald milk and shortening. Put milk mixture into a large mixing bowl when cooled until warm to the touch. Add the sugar, salt and yeast to the milk and melted shortening. Add the beaten egg and one and a half cup of the flour. Stir with a wooden spoon or with the hook attachment. While it is still mixing on low, add one more cup of flour. Continue to slowly add the rest of the flour until the dough is not sticking to the sides and the bottom of the bowl. It is ready to form a ball and put into a large greased bowl. Cover with a greased piece of plastic wrap. Put into a warm spot with no cold drafts to rise to double in size. When the dough has doubled in size, begin heating your oil on medium heat in a large skillet. Carefully lay a piece of dough into the heated oil. You may do more than one at the same time, but do not over crowd the oil. Cook for about one minute on the first side and 30-45 seconds on the second side. It also depends on the temperature of your oil with the time you have on each side. Have a large plate to set the paper towels on for the fry bread to drain all the excess oil off. Serve immediately, or put in the oven on warm. Submitted by Dolly Miller

HOMEMADE TACO SHELLS 2 Eggs 1 Cup Cornstarch 2 T. Cornmeal

1 tsp. Seasoned Salt 2 T. Oil 1/2 Cup Milk

Mix all ingredients well with a whisk. Using a non-stick pan, sprayed with Pam, heat the pan and pour in a small amount of mix. Turn the pan to coat the bottom, these are made like crepes. When the top is mostly set, flip. Only needs to cook on the other side for a few seconds. This mix will make 4 to 5 - 9-inch crepes. We like to load theses taco crepes with meat, cheese, lettuce, tomato, onion, sliced olives, sour cream and taco sauce. Then we fold over and cover with chili. We have these almost every week. You can also use like a taco shell or burrito. This recipe can easily be doubled, tripled or more. I got this recipe from Barb Albertson. Submitted by Carla Albertson

Candy Honey cream taffy

1 T. Butter, no substitutes, softened 1 cup whipping cream

2 cups honey 1 cup sugar

Grease a 15 x 10 x 1-inch baking pan with butter; place in the refrigerator. In a large deep heavy saucepan,combine cream and honey. Add sugar; cook over medium heat and stir with a wooden spoon until sugar is melted and mixture comes to a boil. If sugar crystals are present, cover pan and boil for 1 minute. Uncover; cook without stirring, until a candy thermometer reaches 290 degrees F., soft-crack stage. Remove from the heat and pour into prepared pan, do not scrape sides of saucepan. Cool for 5 minutes. Using a spoon, bring edges of honey mixture into center of pan. Cool 5-10 minutes longer or until cool enough to handle. Using buttered hands, pull and stretch taffy until ridges form. Taffy will lose its gloss and become light tan in color. Pull into ropes about 1/2 thick. With a buttered kitchen scissors, cut into 1 inch pieces. Wrap individually in waxed paper. Yields about 5 dozen pieces. Submitted by Tillie Flynn Taste of Home

1 lb. velveeta cheese 1 lb. margarine 1 T. Vanilla 6 lbs. Powdered Sugar 1 Cup baking cocoa

VELVEETA FUDGE

*chopped nuts ore optional. Put nuts on top of fudge after in pans. Cut recipe in half for easier handling. Be sure of your measurements. 

Sift powdered sugar and cocoa in very large pan, a turkey roaster works nicely. Make a ‘hole’ in the middle of dry mix. Chunk cheese and butter, melt together in double boiler. Melt until smooth. Whisk in Vanilla. Working quickly, add melted cheese, margarine and vanilla to dry mix ‘hole’. Begin to mix fast. As mix gets thick, use hands to knead fudge.  Knead fudge. It is sticky. It helps to butter hands too. Pat into buttered cookie sheets. Use 1 or 2 pans depending on how thick you want fudge. Use rolling pin or a  glass to smooth out top if desired. Refrigerate. Options: Use different flavoring like rum, or peppermint.   Done correctly, I never taste the cheese. It is very rich and a nice change for a different kind of fudge. Submitted by Judy Carden

Pro Tip: OVENS CAN LIE TO YOU. Does it seem your oven is too hot or too cool? It just may be. Place an oven thermometer inside the next time you preheat and find out for certain.

No Bake Salted Caramel Coconut Macaroons 3 T. milk 6 T. salted butter 11 oz. bag caramels, remove wrappers

4 Cups shredded coconut 4 oz. melting chocolate sea salt

Add milk, butter and caramels to a large pot set over medium heat. Allow everything to melt, stirring often so that the mixture doesn’t boil. When the caramel is all melted and smooth, add coconut. Mix together until coconut is well coated with caramel. Scoop out spoonfuls of about 1 1/2 tablespoons of the mixture onto parchment paper and allow to cool completely.

Lemon Brownie Bars

1 Cup all-purpose flour 1 Cup organic granulated cane sugar 1/2 tsp. kosher salt 2/3 Cup unsalted butter, softened to room temperature 2 large eggs + 1 large egg white 

1 T + 1/2 tsp. freshly grated lemon zest 2 T + 2 tsp. freshly squeezed lemon juice For the Lemon Glaze 3/4 Cup confectioners’ sugar, sifted 1 T + 1 tsp. freshly squeezed lemon juice 2 1/2 tsp.  freshly grated lemon zest

Preheat oven to 350ºF. Lightly grease a 9 x 9-inch baking pan with coconut oil (or choice). Line pan with baking parchment so there is an overhang. Four inches in length additionally at each side. This will allow 2 inches of coverage on each end once folded and tucked in. This will create “handles” which will help removing bars from pan and to transfer to cutting board to cut into even bars after cooling. Prepare the Lemon Brownie Batter: With mixer and large bowl, stir together flour, sugar and salt until well combined. Add the butter and mix until well combined, but do not “beat” at high speed which would incorporate too much air. In a small bowl, whisk the eggs, lemon zest and juice together. Scrape and pour into batter using a rubber spatula. Mix together on low mixer setting until well blended and smooth, scraping down sides of bowl. Do not “beat” at high speed with mixer. Scrape batter into prepared pan and smooth the top. Bake in preheated oven until golden brown around the edges and firm to the touch in the center, about 25 minutes. (Do not bake over 25 minutes or the brownie bars will be too dry.) Transfer to wire rack and allow the brownie cake to cool at least 1 hour before removing from pan. Cool completely before spreading on glaze. Use the baking parchment on sides of pan to lift brownie cake out and transfer to cutting board. Once the brownie cake is completely cool, prepare the glaze. Prepare the Lemon Glaze: In a medium bowl, whisk together sugar, lemon juice and zest until smooth and creamy. Pour glaze over cooled brownie cake and spread evenly over the top. Allow glaze to dry slightly on the surface before cutting into bars and serving. Store in airtight container at room temperature or in the refrigerator. Submitted by Susan Nottier

Easy Pumpkin Monkey Bread I make a couple of different versions of Monkey Bread. One uses frozen rolls and rises overnight, then there is this recipe which is much simpler and quicker. The addition of pumpkin puree and pumpkin pie spice adds great seasonal flavor. The best part is that you can serve it for breakfast or dessert. I can’t wait for you to try it. 1/2 cup granulated sugar 1 tsp cinnamon 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice 2 cans refrigerator biscuits {large variety-8 count} 1 cup brown sugar 1/2 cup butter 1/2 cup pumpkin puree 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice GLAZE: 1 1/4 cup powdered sugar 1/4 cup heavy cream {or milk} 2 tsp vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray bundt pan well with non-stick spray. Combine granulated sugar, cinnamon and pumpkin pie spice in a large Ziploc bag. Cut each biscuit into quarters and coat pieces in the cinnamon sugar mixture. Put coated biscuits into bundt pan, being sure to make an even layer around entire pan. In a small saucepan combine brown sugar, butter, pumpkin puree and pumpkin pie spice. Cook over a medium-low heat until the butter is melted and the sugar is dissolved. Pour mixture over the coated biscuits in the bundt pan. Bake for about 35 minutes or until top is golden brown

and biscuits are cooked through. Cool in pan for 3-4 minutes and then invert Monkey Bread onto large plate. While bread is cooling, combine glaze ingredients and drizzle over inverted bread. Serve warm. For more recipes and tips, visit my website www.practicallyhomemade.com

Apple Cider Spritzer This drink would be such a wonderful addition to your Thanksgiving menu or holiday party. One of the best things about it is that it can easily be made into an alcoholic version, so it is Drink Base • 3 cinnamon sticks {plus more for garnish} • 2 red apples, thinly sliced {I used Honey Crisp} • 1 orange, thinly sliced • 4 cups apple cider {I used Honey Crisp} • 1/2 cup orange juice • ¼ cup brown sugar

great for everyone. The mixture of flavors is simple but super delicious. Making the base ahead of time is what helps everything incorporate together and gives it an extra special taste. Cheers!

Additions • lemon-lime soda or ginger ale • Brandy, vodka or other alcoholic beverage of choice sugar sprinkles or cinnamon sugar {rim of glass}

Drink Base: Add apple cider, orange juice and brown sugar to a large pitcher and stir until the sugar is dissolved. Add cinnamon sticks, apple slices and orange slices to pitcher. Stir gently, cover and refrigerate for 6-24 hours. To serve: Wet the rim of your glasses with water and then dip it into plate of colored sugar {or a mixture of cinnamon sugar}. Pour drink base into glass {be sure to add fruit pieces} and top with lemon lime soda/ginger ale or alcoholic beverage of choice {brandy or caramel apple flavored vodka are good choices}. Garnish with a cinnamon stick and enjoy..

Pumpkin Snickerdoodle Snack Cake This snack cake has all of the seasonal flavors that you want with the extra special addition of snickerdoodle. It might just be my newest favorite flavor combination!! I am crazy about the moist pumpkin cake with the awesome snickerdoodle topping and I know that you will be too.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 8x8 square baking pan with non-stick spray. Combine melted butter, egg, brown sugar, pumpkin puree and vanilla in a medium bowl, making sure that the butter isn’t too warm or the egg will scramble. Mix until everything is well combined. Add the pumpkin pie spice, salt, baking powder and flour to the pumpkin mixture and stir until incorporated. Pour into greased 8x8 pan. In a small bowl combine the topping ingredients and sprinkle liberally over the top of the cake. Bake

Sloppy Joe Sandwich Bake Fall weather always has me wanting cozy and comforting dishes that remind me of my childhood.

Worcestershire sauce 1/2 T. chili powder 1/2 tsp cumin 1/2 tsp salt 1.4 tsp black pepper 1/2 tsp dried oregano 6 hoagie rolls 6 slices cheese {halved-I used Provolone}

notch and baked in the oven for extra goodness. The hoagie roll is slightly toasted and the cheese is perfectly melted, the ideal meal for this time of year. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a skillet over medium-high heat add oil and onion. Cook until onions are translucent. Add minced garlic and cook for an additional minute. Add hamburger to onion and garlic mixture and cook until the burger is completely browned. While hamburger is browning combine ketchup, brown sugar, yellow mustard, Worcestershire sauce, chili powder, cumin, salt, pepper and oregano in a small bowl. Whisk together and set aside. Once hamburger is cooked, drain any grease from meat and return to heat. Add sauce to drained meat and stir to coat. Open hoagie rolls and lay in a 9x13 baking dish. Divide filling between rolls and top each sandwich with a slice of cheese. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until cheese is melted and bread is slightly toasted. Serve warm.
