Squash Braid
I made this bread with one minor change: I used Hubbard squash, because that is what was we had from the garden. I kept all the other ingredients as per the recipe, but I made it in my stand mixer and let the dough hook do all the work. I made 2 braided loaves. One came undone at one end (not the recipe's fault, more like the cook's) But, it looked OK and everyone loved it, including me. It is great toasted or just eaten with butter and jam. Definitely a keeper. Did not last long enought to make sandwiches. It was gone in less than a day.

French Pastry Pie Crust
This crust recipe changed my life! Before I found this recipe, I was timid and unsure, a Sissy Girl (when it came to pies and especially the crust). This recipe tastes great, it's flaky, very easy to handle, very forgiving of mistakes and even stores well in the fridge for several days. Now, I am Amazon Woman of the Pie-Making Tribe! I have used this recipe at least a dozen times since I found it 2 months ago. I even left the sugar out and used it for a deep dish chicken pot pie. The only minor problem I had was I had to use at least double the water to get the dough to hold together. But, hey, when it did, it was perfect every time.

Ellen's Lemon Zucchini Bread
This was highly appreciated by my guys. I followed the recipe almost exactly, except I added 3/4 c. raisins and 3/4 c. chopped walnuts, because my buddy asked me to. I did not have lemon extract, so I used the juice from the lemon I zested. The lemon flavor was perfect, not too strong or too weak. It complemented the zucchini perfectly. The batter was so thick I thought I had accidentally put too much flour in, but it came out lovely. moist and yummy. I didn't have 2 loaf pans, so I made 18 cupcakes and a loaf. Alghough they only lasted a day and a half at my house, the bread stayed very moist. Thanks for a great recipe, Ellen.
