Fabulous Homemade Bread For the Food Processor

Use your food processor to cut the kneading time down to just a minute or two, and get 2 loaves of homemade bread in only about 3 hours.

The ability to read. Because if you can read a recipe you can cook. I don't understand people that say "I can't cook." I always ask if they can read and when they reply yes I say "Then you can cook." I think it stems from the fact that my sister in law always complained about not knowing how to cook - turns out she was just lazy and wanted others to do it. But truthfully - I love reading recipes, trying them and tweaking them. I even like making up my own - and without the ability to read/write I couldn't do it. If I had to pick an appliance or tool? Since my illness I would have to say my Hamilton Beach Stand mixer. It isn't fancy like a Kitchen Aid, but it is such an enormous help in mixing all those things we love but I don't have the capacity to do anymore. I don't knead bread with it tho' [or my food processor] I still manage that because it relaxes me and makes my hands/joints feel so much better. But those things are a gift for those who don't like to knead. Wish I could've bought one for my Grandma. She would've loved it. :)

Family to eat what I make!

Healthy family enjoying what I prepare, and the money to buy the food with!!!

Spending time with family/friends to enjoy a home cooked meal.

Marie C. - I know what you mean!! Here in Nicaragua our water is cut off every other day. It's awful!! Running water is definitely a blessing!!
Nov. 15, 2012 5:15 pm
Marianne, Misty, and Grammom - Couldn't agree more!! Cooking wouldn't be half as fun if there was no one to enjoy the food with.:)
Nov. 15, 2012 5:16 pm
How long is your family planning on being in Nicaragua? Is this a multiple year mission?
Nov. 15, 2012 5:23 pm
We are planning on being here for about a year longer. Plans may change, though. I'm just enjoying it while I can!!:) Water and all.......

All great answers! Having anyone enjoy a dish, water/heat/electricity, the KA, knives and coffee maker are on my list.
Nov. 15, 2012 5:27 pm
Coffe maker!! How could I forget? Ours is on practically 24/7:) Coffee here also happens to be some of the best.

Gotta have a good cup to start the day!

I'm with Marie C.-running water is good. We had a well and an outhouse when I was young. I do enjoy my KA, wish I'd had it when the older kids were home. I miss the Bunn coffeemakers I've had for the last 30+ years, but enjoy the perculator I have now, except when it needs a thorough cleaning.

Aside from all your wonderful answers--I absolutely love my microplane zester. I guess having running water every day makes mine look a little petty. But I love it none the less.
Nov. 15, 2012 5:36 pm
CONNIE - There is never anything too small to be thankful for:D
Nov. 15, 2012 5:51 pm
Connie-O- A microplane is something that I have yet to buy myself. I;ve lost the blades to my food processor in my last move, and I've also lost a favorite item, my zester. I agree with grainfreegirl96-there is nothing too small to be thankful for. I just wish I could find those "small" things that are still in a box....somewhere. Then I could be thankful for them.

My kitchen island is large and makes cooking fun! I love my kitchen's design. My favorite tool today is my pastry blender....ya know the half round thing with a handle and it has strong metal blades rather than wires. I used it today to mix tuna salad, egg salad, and for a pie.

grainfreegirl96,, You are so mature for your age. I so admire you everytime I read something you have written about here.I had no interest in cooking at your age. I have to agree that running water is something I am very thankful for. Earlier this week when I got home the plumber had the water cut off at my house. He was putting on new faucets in the bathtubs in the house. I was handicapped as to how to start dinner. I finally thought of bottle water to wash my hands.

Green Chile Chicken Stew

Submitted by: Georgette 
This stew will keep you warm and cozy on those cold winter days!! I got this recipe together after months of harassing my friends in New Mexico in search of the perfect green chile chicken stew. I make it at least once every month (I myself use a pressure cooker). Serve with warm flour tortillas. This recipe has a lot of chile peppers. Be sure to tone it down if you can't handle heat!

Can I say more than one thing of grateful? My chef man are Kyle. We have lived together for 15 years (now--fiance) and his cooking repertoire (sp?) has expanded. He cooks dinner more often than i. It's team effort. i find recipe and he concocts it from what we have. Then grateful for my Poppy, at 81 still teaches me (cooking & more, gerr duh). He taught me how to make Masa and whole wheat tortillas last month--his recipe. Oh, last but not least friends on AR.
Nov. 15, 2012 6:04 pm
Agree about the friends on AR!!

Family having dinner together,and the time i "talk" to the people on AR.Also my black lab who is always under my feet,and a husband who likes to cook.

Nutty Buddy Pies

Just like an peanutty ice cream bar, but in the shape of a pie! Cream cheese, crunchy peanut butter, powdered sugar, whipped topping and chocolate syrup create a creamy, crunchy, chocolatey frozen dessert pie!
