Breads are tricky if your yeast does not raise. The temperature of the water is crucial as well as "fresh" yeast and flour.

Kale Chips in the Microwave
I just made these in the microwave and ate 2 batches as soon as they cooled enough to eat. I liked the idea of misting the with a olive oil mist, otherwise you can get too much oil on them and they are oily. This is so healthy for you too. Make sure these do not overlap or they will not cook crisp. Using parchment paper is slick. I use parchment paper for almost all of my baking. I love my kale garden and can find so many ways to use it. I make a kale breakfast smoothies also in kale season. Wished I could have fresh kale year-round. (-:

Perfect Flat Iron Steak
Best steak recipe ever. This was my 1st time making a flat iron steak and I am back to the butcher for a couple more. I used all the fresh herbs but after chopping I had 1/3 c of herbs. I used molasses in place of the wine which is what I have always used in my marinade recipes. I marinaded this for 4 hours and fried this in a large fry pan at medium/high heat for 4 minutes each side. The steak was med/rare throughout the entire steak and juicy translucent. 5+ star!

Sausage Egg Casserole
Very good. I needed to use some cottage cheese and this worked. I will put this in my rotation. This is a nice basic recipe that you can change to what you have on hand. I will add only 1/2 c of flour next time as I thought this was too much.
