My Kitchen is Growing.

I am ready to open my cookbook blog to the public ad means. That meant I needed to really look at the name. I started this blog in order to post recipes my friends and family requested. In the next few months I will be adding more Blog entries about other things that go on in the kitchen. A little info on the blog's look: The Banner is the border in my kitchen. The widget is part of a Cabinet that I purchase and moved in the first day in the house. the items on the cabinet are things given by my child,family and Critter. My kitchen is sprinkled with all the things I get from the kids and friends. I Love to be in the kitchen every day. My joy of cooking and a Feeling of peace in the room is what I like the best. All my furniture it movable, making it easy to change the view (I Love doing that).

SourDough Starter with Auntie E's bread recipe

While at my hubby's family reunion I picked up some Starter. I use to make Amish friendship bread all the time in the 1980's. I recently felt like I would like to begin again. My Sister in Law had some starter and I weaseled her out of a cup. I have been feeding it and growing it.
I have notice there are many different instruction on how to grow the starter. I have one I really like so that one will be on this post.


You must first have 1 cup of the starter in a glass container. Do not refrigerate it. Leave it on your counter doing this process:
Day 1-4 stir once a day
Day 5 Add 1 cup each of Sugar, flour and milk- Stir well with wooden spoon.
Day6-9 stir once a day
Day 10 Add 1 cup each of sugar, flour and milk stir well- Then put 1 cup of starter into 3 containers. give two away( ie: called Friendship bread), be sure you give them these instructions. Save one of the 1 cup containers, this is your new starter.

Bread Instruction:
Now you will make the bread with the remaining 1- 3/4 cup of starter .
to the above remaining starter add:
1/3 cup oil
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1/2 teaspoon real vanilla
1/2 tsp Baking soda
2 cups flour
1-1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt

Mix well.
Grease and Sugar 2 loaf pans
Pour mixture in prepared loaf pans.
Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 30-40 minutes

I will be posting some New and Old recipes I have dug up. Be looking for them soon.
