few months back, I took a bread-baking class with my mother-in-law and since then, we have both discovered a passion for cooking and baking. Admittedly, her passion has much more skill to back it up but I enjoy baking and creating food even if it’s not always the most appetizing once it’s done. But my bacon and cheddarfilled French rolls were a hit at Christmas so I must have at least a teeny bit of talent tucked away somewhere. And I know I’m not the only person out there who enjoys doing

COMMON BAKING PROBLEMS

UP HERE, THE AIR IS RARE

Perhaps you’ve tried your hand at baking something from scratch only to have your creation come out inedible. Here are some common baking problems you might encounter and a few ideas for how to combat • The higher the altitude, the them. lower the air pressure. When the pressure is low, food takes longer • Cakes – often cakes baked to bake. You may need to adjust above 5,000 feet will rise nicely the temperature, the baking time, during baking but may cave in or both.

Most recipes are developed for use at sea level. In Monument, though where the elevation is about 6,975 feet, baking can be difficult. Why? Here are several reasons:

or fall when you take them out. Sometimes they may be coarse or crumbly. You can strengthen the batter by reducing the amount of sugar you use or by adding eggs, egg yolks, or just a bit more flour. • Pies – pies are slightly easier to deal with at higher altitudes but often the crust is too dry and the top gets burned before the filling is completely cooked. Adding more liquid to the crust can help but too much liquid can cause the crust to become tough. Loosely covering your pie with foil can keep the top from burning. • Cookies – cookies baked at our elevation are typically fine but sometimes they spread too much or come out a little tough.

periment with using less sugar, leavening or fat, or adding a little more liquid and flour to your recipe to see what works best for your altitude. Too much flour can make the cookies tough so be careful with that ingredient. Sometimes the answer is simply to increase your oven’s heat by 15°F or 25°F. • Muffins, scones, biscuits, cornbread, etc – with baked goods such as these, a common problem is that the batter doesn’t rise properly. To combat this, you’ll want a more acidic batter so use less baking soda which neutralizes acid. If your batter keeps collapsing, use less sugar and increase the flour you add. To prevent your creation from being too dry, you can substitute buttermilk or yogurt for water. As with pies, the top may cook faster than the batter underneath so using foil to cover the pan loosely can help. • Yeast breads – breads of this sort tend to rise much faster at our high altitude so ingredient or technique adjustments are often a must. Some people reduce the amount of yeast or use ice water instead of warm water in their recipes. Others will punch down their dough more often and allow for a longer rising time to balance it out. “Over-proofed” bread dough (one that has risen

too much) is a common problem and can cause the dough to warp, collapse or droop during baking. To prevent over-proofing, allow the dough to rise about one third of the total volume rather than doubling in volume before baking. And salt is a must; never leave it out. Salt slows down the growth of yeast and the expansion of gases, hampering the rising process to an acceptable speed. Include a pan of boiling water in the bottom of the oven when baking to achieve a good rise and crisp crust.

They will dry out and go stale much more quickly • Reduce the amount of sugar at a higher altitude than at lower used by up to 2 tablespoons for ones. each cup the recipe calls for.

OTHER HIGH ALTITUDE BAKING TIPS

• Always properly preheat your oven. While it may beep indicating it’s ready to use, it’s best to wait about 15 minutes anyway to make sure you’re getting as much heat as possible.

• Cake batter tends to stick to the pan more at higher altitudes so make sure to grease you pan well and then dust them with flour. You can opt to line pans with parchment paper instead.

• The middle rack of the oven provides the most even heat. It will remain moderately heated throughout the baking time while the bottom rack can get overly hot and burn your creation.

• Instead of filling pans 2/3 full as usually indicated by a recipe, fill it 1/2 full to prevent overflowing.

• At high altitudes, flavors tend to HIGH ALTITUDE be less pronounced because there aren’t as many moisture particles “RULES OF THUMB” to carry the aroma to the nose so be prepared to use more spices to In general, the following adjustcreate the desired flavor profile. • If your recipe calls for beaten egg whites, be cautious.

MARCH JUST GOT MADDER By Nick Yanez

I

imagine myself on at every major music festival and sporting event annually. My wife imagines a big house with a pool, garden, and library. My dad probably imagines himself on a Harley, eating steak whenever he wants. We’ve all had the thought before; what if we were to become a billionaire – with a B? A billion dollars is hard to comprehend, actually. It means doing literally whatever you want when you want. It means never having to worry about money again. Heck, it means that your grandchildren will likely never have to worry about money again. It’s beyond the American Dream; it’s a flat out fantasy. Only few will ever live such a fairytale. Maybe, you could be one of those few. Multi-billionaire Warren Buffet has recently made and offer no one can refuse. Apparently, Buffet is a basketball fan. Through his company, Berkshire Hathaway, he is offering the unimaginable grand prize of one billion dollars! The task? Pick a perfect bracket in this year’s NCAA March Madness Tournament. The 68-team bracket is almost impossible to nail perfectly. There are actually over 9 quintillion combinations that could happen. Is that even a number!? Which is why the wealthy company is willing to bet a small billion that you can’t guess right. Of course

if you’re a sports fan, and you actually know something about the game of college basketball, experts estimate your odds are closer to 1 in 128-billion. So there’s that comforting news to all you sports fanatics. Filling out brackets has become something of a tradition for American sports fans. Throughout the years though, the bracket has thrown many curveballs towards gamblers and sports enthusiasts. Who can forget last year’s incredible run by unknown underdogs Florida Gulf Coast? The young school made a run into the Sweet Sixteen as a #15 seed in the tournament; no #15 seed had ever advanced that far before. That’s what makes a perfect bracket near impossible, anything can happen. You never know what team will make a run. But if I’m wrong and you happen to know which underdog will blow up this year’s brackets, by all means, make it happen. If you do, you will have a lottery-type option of choosing to take a lump sum payment of $500 Million, or you can receive payments of $25 Million for the next 40 years of your life. Suffice to say, I think you won’t be running out of cash anytime soon with either option. Berkshire Hathaway’s impressive offer is by far the largest prize up for grabs in this year’s tournament. But Fox Sports is also offering $1 Million, while Yahoo has upped theirs to $5 Million for a perfect bracket. Put quite simply – your odds are bad. Really, really bad. But why not try. Unlike the lottery, it cost nothing to enter a bracket. I suggest you do your research on this year’s tournament. It could end up being the most important work decision of your entire life. Likely, it’ll be another small waste of time. Either way, I wish you luck. You’re going to need it.

LONELINESS: THE CONSTANT HEARTACHE

WHO ARE THE LONELY? By Dr. Ron Ross

M

ore than one out of three adults 45 and older reported they were chronically lonely, according to a survey done by the AARP in 2010. The definition given for “chronically lonely” makes the report even sadder; chronically lonely means they have been lonely for a long time. This loneliness persists in a Facebook world of a few authentic and an excess of fantasy friendships. In May, 2013 Facebook had over 1.19 billion active users worldwide with 4.5 billion “likes” generated daily with 78 million people logging on to it every day sharing 4.5 billion pieces of content, yet one out of three are still lonely.

Who are the lonely? Are you one of them?

men are lonelier than unmarried women.

The less educated: The better educated are not as lonely as the less educated; a good reason to make sure your children get a good education.

African Americans: They are lonelier than whites though I couldn’t find evidence as to why. Retired people are lonelier than the employed: Work is good for the soul and for abating loneliness; a good reason to NOT retire.

The unemployed: They feel disconnected and useless as they waste their days watching TV and wander streets searching for meaning and purpose in life. Their despair intensifies with each employment application rejection and successive unemployment check.

Just because you’re not on the list does not mean you don’t feel lonely from timeto-time. You don’t have to live alone in a high-rise apartment, be isolated on a deserted island, or have all forms of communications cut off to be lonely. You can be lonely in the midst of a throng, at the top of your profession, and lonely even as you

THE ROLE OF SUGAR IN SUGAR DIABETES DEAR DR. DONOHUE: My husband is 6 feet 4 inches tall and weighs 170 pounds. He is a competitive distance runner. He loves Kool-Aid and calculates that in a year he drinks 150 pounds of sugar in Kool-Aid alone. A friend told him if he continues this habit, he might develop diabetes. Can a skinny, athletic person develop diabetes from consuming sugar? -- S.B. ANSWER: Although “sugar” is half the name of sugar diabetes, sugar doesn’t cause diabetes. It’s a popular belief that it does, but it doesn’t. People with diabetes are careful to watch their sugar intake, and they watch their total carbohydrate intake, but diabetics don’t have to eliminate sugar completely from their lives. Careful monitoring of sugar and carbohydrate intake is essential for their control of blood sugar. Type 1 diabetes, the kind that requires insulin for control, often has its onset in younger years. It’s due to a destruction of the insulin-making cells of the pancreas. The destruction is believed to be the work of the immune system. Sugar has nothing to do with it. Type 1 diabetes accounts for 5 percent to 10 percent of all diabetes cases. Type 2 diabetes, the much more common kind, comes about from a decline in insulin production along with a decline in the effectiveness of insulin. Ninety percent of Type 2 diabetics are overweight, and weight loss helps them control their blood sugar. Physical inactivity also contributes to Type 2 diabetes. So do genes. Again, it’s not the sugar intake that produces this common type of diabetes. But monitoring the intake of sugar is important for control of this variety of diabetes.

DEAR DR. DONOHUE: I think I may have the illness where a person pulls out clumps of hair. I’m not sure of the name. I find I do this after I have caffeine. I have been off caffeine for 25 years, and I do not pull my hair out. I thought this might be helpful to others. -- K.H.

PALMER LAKE WELLNESS CENTER

ANSWER: The name of the condition is trichotillomania (TRICK-oh-TILL-uhMAY-knee-uh). Between 4 million and 11 million Americans have it. It’s called an impulse disorder. I hadn’t heard about a caffeine connection. If this holds true for others, they will deeply appreciate your advice.

TRI-LAKES PREMIER ALTERNATIVE MEDICINE CENTER

*** DEAR DR. DONOHUE: You recently wrote that Excedrin with caffeine enhances pain relief. I believe that often the cause of headaches is withdrawal from caffeine. Another inference of this fact is to wean oneself from caffeine when trying to kick the habit. -- B.B.

ANSWER: You’re right. One of the withdrawal symptoms from going cold turkey off somewhat-heavy caffeine consumption is headache, particularly migraine headache. I’m right. Caffeine is a mild painkiller that increases the painkilling capacities of other analgesics when incorporated into the same tablet as those analgesics.

MOMENTS IN TIME THE HISTORY CHANNEL

• On Jan. 29, 1845, Edgar Allan Poe’s poem “The Raven,â€? which begins “Once upon a midnight dreary,â€? is published in the New York Evening Mirror. Poe’s macabre work often portrayed motiveless crimes and intolerable guilt in his characters. • On Feb. 2, 1887, Groundhog Day, featuring a rodent meteorologist, is celebrated for the ďŹ rst time at Gobbler’s Knob in Punxsutawney, Pa. According to tradition, if a groundhog comes out of its hole on this day and sees its shadow, there will be six more weeks of winter weather; no shadow means an early spring. • On Jan. 30, 1943, the British Royal Air Force begins a bombing campaign in Berlin that coincides with the 10th anniversary of Hitler’s accession to power. To make matters worse for the Germans, the following day a massive surrender of German troops occurred at Stalingrad. • On Jan. 27, 1967, a launch-pad ďŹ re during Apollo program tests at Cape Canaveral, Fla., kills astronauts Virgil “Gusâ€?

Grissom, Edward H. White II and Roger B. Chafee. An investigation indicated that a faulty electrical wire inside the Apollo 1 command module was the probable cause of the fire. • On Feb. 1, 1974, University of Washington student Lynda Ann Healy disappears from her apartment and is murdered by serial killer Ted Bundy. In the summer of 1974, Bundy attacked at least seven young women in Washington. By the time he was captured in 1979, Bundy had become America’s most infamous serial killer.

The instruction producer Quincy Jones sent to pop stars doing the recording: “Check your egos at the door.â€? • On Jan. 31, 1990, the Soviet Union’s first McDonald’s fast-food restaurant opens in Moscow. Throngs of people line up to pay the equivalent of several days’ wages for Big Macs, shakes and french fries. Customers were most amazed at the politeness of the workers.

The Veterans Aid & Attendance Pension provides wartime veterans and their surviving spouses with tax-free financial aid for senior care needs.

by Samantha Weaver • It was Lebanese poet Kahlil Gibran who made the following sage observation: “I have learnt silence from the talkative, toleration from the intolerant, and kindness from the unkind; yet strange, I am ungrateful to these teachers.” • In Japan, black cats are considered to be good luck. • If you’re ever longing for the “good old days,” you might want to keep this snippet in mind: In 19th-century America, one of the most popular cure-all remedies was “snail water,” which was made by pounding earthworms and snails together, adding the paste to beer and boiling the whole thing. Those in need of a tonic drank it. • Sea turtles can breathe through their backsides. • If you could leap over the St. Louis Arch

• If you’re planning a trip to Oregon, you might want to stop off in Gold Hill to see the Oregon Vortex, where strange phenomena are said to occur. In the mid-20th century, a scientist and mining engineer named John Litser conducted experiments on the property and came to the conclusion that the site contains a spherical field of force and 15 crisscrossing magnetic fields. Before his death in 1959, he burned his notes, reportedly saying, “The world is not ready for this.” Those who tour the attraction today might see balls roll uphill or brooms stand on end. Some people appear to be much shorter and some much taller. There are even those who say visiting the Vortex eases back pain. • Before he became famous, singer Rod Stewart briefly had a job as a grave digger. *** Thought for the Day: “Television makes so much at its worst that it can’t afford to do its best.” -- Fred W.

GO JOB HUNTING AND TAKE A TAX DEDUCTION

M

ost people would probably put job hunting as one of their least favorite things to do plus marketing yourself as the best candidate can be painfully expensive. Lucky for you, you might be able to offset some of those job hunting expenses.

Tina cies. Things like CareerBuilder and Indeed qualify. Resume Preparation Fees: Not only is the cost of resume paper and envelopes deductible, but so are the costs of

Travel and Transportation Expenses: If some travel is required on your job hunting adventure, you can deduct travel expenses if the primary purpose of your trip is to look for a new job. If you have to drive downtown, across town, or to distant places, you can use the standard mileage to calculate your expenses. Taxi, train, or bus fares are an expense you can deduct. Expenses for tolls and parking garages also count.

As with any tax benefit, a few ground rules apply. First, the job you seek must be in the same occupation- an automatic disqualification for first time job seekers and those switching occupations. Hair dresser turned esthetician might a grey area.

THE BEST TIMES TO BUY

T

here are patterns to saving money. Retailers discount merchandise at certain times of the year, and it only seems illogical until you consider it from their point of view: Merchants want to get rid of things that didn’t sell, and sell you things they perceive you’re going to want. Sometimes those make for an odd combination of sales merchandise. Consumer Reports magazine has come up with a list of the best times to buy a variety of items: • Gas grills are hot when the weather turns cold -- October, November and December -- just when you’re not likely to be using one. Stores want to clear out the old models before the new ones arrive in the spring. • You’d think GPS would be a summer travel and geocaching item, but no, merchants push those in November and December. Take the opportunity to buy for holiday gifts or for yourself for travel. • Stock up on your summer swimwear at the same time you buy discounted home-gym equipment -- at the begin-

• August is a funny month. You’ll be able to find deals on air conditioners (that you could have used all summer) as well as the snow blowers you’ll need in the winter. At the same time, outdoor furniture will be discounted, just in time for fall -- and having to store it away over the winter. • Look for toys from November through January, and winter sports gear in March. • Some items do go on sale just when you need them: Digital cameras appear in March, in time for spring and summer photography. Lawn mowers come out in April, along with spring clothing. There are other ways to save money, and they also follow patterns.

• When it comes to summer camp for your child, you need to start considering options in the middle of winter. Slots in the best camps will go quickly, as will the assistance money if you need help paying. • For carpeting and furniture, wait until after the year-end holidays. • Shop at thrift stores just as everyone is doing spring cleaning.
