To make the best tasting juicy hamburgers, try putting your onions in the food blender until well blended, then add to hamburger.  You will be amazed at the flavour your burger will have.

Blue Divider Line

Superstore at Anderson Subdivision in Vernon BC has the best tasting salsa and cheap.  It tastes fresh.  You get a huge container the size of the large cottage cheese container for about $5.00.  It comes in a tall clear container with a name marked on the lid.  Can't remember the name, sorry.

5 MINUTE CHOCOLATE MUG CAKE

We tried this recipe and was it every yummy!!


4 tablespoons flour
4 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons cocoa
1 egg
3 tablespoons milk
3 tablespoons oil
3 tablespoons chocolate chips (optional)
A small splash of vanilla extract
1 large coffee mug (MicroSafe)

Add dry ingredients to mug, and mix well. Add the egg and mix thoroughly.
Pour in the milk and oil and mix well.
Add the chocolate chips (if using) and vanilla extract, and mix again.
Put your mug in the microwave and cook for 3 minutes at 1000 watts or high.
The cake will rise over the top of the mug, but don't be alarmed!
Allow to cool a little, and tip out onto a plate if desired.
EAT ! (this can serve 2 if you want to feel slightly more virtuous).

It seems to me one could also add nuts, raisins, etc.

And why is this the most dangerous cake recipe in the world?
Because now we are all only 5 minutes away from chocolate cake at any time of the day or night!

Want less caffeine, but can't give up your coffee?

Below is something we were just reading about coffee and caffeine.

It is not a beneficial substance to be sure, but you should know that it lurks mainly in the cheaper, wild "robusta" varieties of coffee. The purer "arabicas" contain almost no caffeine at all. The cheapo packaged coffees you buy are almost wholly robusta, and high-roasted too. Buy beans from a good store and make sure they're 100% arabica, then grind your own as you need to.

Healthy Popcorn

Very tasty, no salt and no butter healthy alternative!

Use "Engevita Yeast".  It comes in a yellow colored powder form a little darker than the color of butter.  You can buy it in flakes or powder.  We use the powder for popcorn. 

Just pop the popcorn and sprinkle the Engevita yeast on.  If you like it, "Engevita Yeast" may replace both butter and salt.

You should be able to purchase Engevita yeast in a can at health food stores, and in some cases it may also be available in bulk.

Here is some nutritional information about one brand of Engevita Yeast flakes.  The powder form would be more concentrated.

Biscuit Topping with Herbs
from Jude’s kitchen.
source Kelowna Capital News

This is a nice savoury topping for a bit of leftover stew instead of using pastry, to make a pot pie.

3/4 c. flour 175 ml

1/4 c. whole wheat flour 60 ml

2 tsp. baking powder 10 ml

1 tbsp. brown sugar 15 ml

1/2 tsp. salt 2 ml

1/4 tsp. black pepper 1 ml

2 tbsp. fresh parsley 30 ml

2 tbsp. olive oil 30 ml

1/3 c. milk 75 ml

Mix dry ingredients with a whisk and add minced fresh parsley.

Combine olive oil and milk with the dry ingredients in a few quick strokes.

Squeeze dough or knead it a dozen times, then pat out to a half-inch thickness and cut into rounds, or just dab onto top of hot stew.

Bake at 425 F for about 15 minutes, or until nicely browned.

Serves 2-4.

okanaganlakebc.ca tried this recipee and it was very good with stew.  We did not make the stew below with this recipee.

Crockpot Beef Stew with Wine & Herbs
from Jude’s kitchen.
source Kelowna Capital News

This makes a quick and easy meal for a workday—or a playday when you’ll be away all day, but want to come home to a meal that makes the whole house smell yummy. Double the recipe if you want to make a second meal from it, or leave it as is to make a second meal for two.

1 lb. stew beef 454 g

2 tbsp. flour 30 ml

salt and pepper, to taste

4 carrots

2 celery stalks

1 onion

1 garlic clove

1 c. beef broth 250 ml

1/4 c. red wine 60 ml

2 tsp. thyme 10 ml

1 tsp. tarragon 5 ml

1 tbsp. fresh parsley 15 ml

Dredge cubes of beef in a mixture of flour, salt and pepper and brown quickly in a little hot oil, then put into crockpot or slow cooker. Deglaze pan juices with beef broth.

Chop vegetables into chunks and mince garlic. Add to beef.

Add beef broth, wine and herbs.

Cover and simmer on low for eight hours or so.

Garnish with fresh chopped parsley.

Serves 4.

Ingredients and instructions for larger loaf

This bread is not as tasty as some breads when eaten by itself, but it rises really nice!!  You may want to try adjusting this recipe to suit your taste, maybe you will get an idea of how to get your bread to rise better, and or have a tastier recipe than okanaganlakebc.ca?

Put the ingredients below in the bread maker in this order while your house is warm:

1 1/8 cup or little less of water first, then
1/2 square of margarine
1 Tbsp white sugar or honey (we like honey)
1 dash of salt (salt kills yeast, so don't put too much in)
1 tsp or a little more of molasses (molasses helps bread rise and so does sugar) but don't use too much.
then swish the pan around to mix sugar and salt
2 1/4 cup white flour (Robin Hood all purpose flour rises better but I use the no name brand of all purpose flour from Superstore so be careful of over rising if you use Robin Hood's white flour, maybe cut down on the yeast a bit or omit the molasses)
3/4 cup brown flour (I am using Robin Hood all purpose brown flour for this recipe)
1 Tbsp lemon juice will help preserve your bread and honey will too.
1 level tsp Fleishman's bread maker yeast (in the little jar for approx. $5.00) on top of all the the flour last.  Don't over do the yeast or your bread will be sticking to the viewing glass.

I heard gluten is bad for you so I don't use it.  I'd like to start using seeds in my bread and getting it to rise nice.

I bake my bread on the dark setting and the longest setting about 4 hours in all.

If you don't like the taste of brown flour then omit the brown flour and try 1/4 cup of ground flax or other grains to replace the brown flour and use 2 3/4 cup white flour instead of 2 1/4 cup.  You can try your own measurements by calculating the flour and grain together to make 3 cups, and not putting too much grain in, or it won't rise as nice.

Ground flax is better than whole flax, so make sure you grind whole flax before adding flax to your bread.
