Bolivian Saltenas
This is a good saltena recipe. I live in Bolivia and can't imagine what it will be like NOT having these when I move back to the states. Also, there are so many variations, many people leave out the olives here to satisfy more pallets. Also, I have had them with raisins and olives only one time when I was at my husbands family's home in Houston never in Bolivia. Even better are the sauces that accompany the saltenas they have usually a spicy peanut sauce an olive sauce as well as a spicy salsa and sometimes a green or avacado sauce. Also, saltenas vary by region here. Thanks for the recipe.

Fluffy Pancakes
These are the PERFECT Pancakes. After experimenting with them often I found that you can use red vinegar if you don't have white and they taste even better if you add a little vanilla and cinnamon to the batter. I will never bother with another recipe. I have to half the leavening agents as I live at a very high altitude and they still rise like crazy. Thank you so much for this recipe.

Crispy and Creamy Doughnuts
These came out awesome. This was my first experience making dough at an extreme altitude. I had to half the yeast and add a little extra milk and they came out perfect.
