I felt crafty so I started on my Halloween decorations and costume today. Can you guess who I'm going to be for Halloween?
For Christmas last year, Dan got me a subscription to Martha Stewart Living. I love it. There is always something fun and totally mindless to do from it. This cute pumpkin and other creatures were displayed hanging over a table of food for a party. I think I'll try hanging mine in my windows.

1 1/2 Cup Hot Water
1/4 Cup Powdered Milk
1/4 Cup Butter
3 Tbsp Sugar
1 Tbsp Yeast
1 Tsp Salt
4 Cup Flour
2 Tbsp Butter, Softened
Combine hot water, powdered milk, sugar, and 1/4 cup butter. Stir until butter melts and mixture is warm. Add yeast and salt, let dissolve until yeast reacts. Add flour and mix until combined. Let rise for 15 minutes. Grease muffin tins (12) with cooking spray. Roll out dough on floured surface into a rectangle and spread with softened 2 Tbsp butter. (If dough is sticky knead a little flour into it.) Fold dough in half lengthwise. Cut into strips and tie dough into a knot, tucking ends under and place in muffin tin. Let rise 15 minutes and bake at 400 degrees for 10-12 minutes.

Tonight I made scalloped potatoes for part of Dan's birthday dinner. It's my great grandma Carver's recipe and I love them. I'm not sure if they are better than other recipes but they have a sentimental value for me.
10-12 medium sized potatoes, peeled and sliced thinly
1 onion, diced small
Whipping cream or milk
Salt and Pepper
In a 9X13 pan layer potatoes, onions, salt and pepper, and sprinkle flour over entire layer. Repeat layering until potatoes are gone. Pour cream or milk into pan until it is just about to cover the top layer of potatoes. Place strips of bacon on the top layer of potatoes. Bake at 375 for about an 1 hour or until potatoes are soft. (Place 9X13 dish on a cookie sheet in oven for any spillage.) Let stand for 30 minutes. It will thicken as it cools.

I love quiche. It's one of my comfort foods. It's easy to make too, especially if you buy the crust like I did. It's better with a homemade crust but if you're short on time a store bought one will do.
9 inch Flaky Pie Crust - bake at 375 for 7 minutes, set aside
6 slices of bacon, cooked and crumbled
1/2 cup chopped onion - saute onion
1 1/2 cups steamed and chopped broccoli
2 cups of shredded cheese
1 cup whipping cream or half and half
Salt and pepper
Combine all ingredients minus 1 cup of cheese. Put one cup of cheese in the bottom of the pie crust and pour the remaining ingredients in pie crust. Bake at 375 degrees for 45 minutes. Let cool before serving.
