Egg Drop Soup (Better than Restaurant Quality!)
Perfect and oh so simple to make! I've always loved egg-drop soup but never quite found the trick to make it at home and have it taste like the restaurant-until NOW! The corn starch and probably the sesame oil are the "magic" ingredients which take this up to the perfecto level. One cup of this is hardly enough, I doubled the recipe using a can of chicken broth which is about 2 cups of liquid. Add some chow mein noodles on top and this is instant chinese heaven at home!

Whole Wheat Honey Bread
I found my/THE bread recipe-this is going to sit at the top of my breadmaker recipe box as a go-to everyday all purpose "healthy" bread. Love the fact that it uses all whole wheat flour and basic simple ingredients to yield the perfect bread for sandwiches, toast and even grilled cheese. I've tried other wheat breads which have come out with a dry texture-this one is perfect. It's hearty and sturdy (won't fall apart like some egg bread recipes), cuts clean and is as smooth as the honey that goes in it! Like others I used vegetable oil instead of shortening....something about the combination of the milk powder and honey does this thing fine. This might not produce a loaf of bread with the rise of a bread flour recipe but it does indeed rise given time and patience and produces an OUTSTANDING whole wheat honey of a bread! Like I said, a KEEPER for me.....just bought a jar of honey for future use.

Slow Cooker Homemade Beans
Wow-these baked beans are incredible, this is one I'll be using many times in the future when grilling out or even on a wintry Sunday. Incredibly easy and uses only a few ingredients which I always have on hand. I did exactly as others suggested with fantastic results; namely both soaking the beans overnight and then simmering at a slow boil for an hour in the morning before throwing in the crockpot. If you do this then just add the other ingredients and let it go for 8 hours on low, be sure to stir every now and then-don't wait to add the ketchup/salt as the sauce literally comes together like fine wine over the duration of time. While it might seem a bit sweet initially, after slow cooking for 8 hours it all comes together and is simply perfection-I'm a person who likes spicy sauces and I'd not add a thing to this, nor change the composition. Kudos for this one, it's truly simplicity and perfection in one-I'll not be buying anymore canned beans! (this is FAR less expensive than canned beans, a single package of beans fixes a whole pot).
