chili's salsa

2 cans (14.5 oz each) whole tomatoes, drained
1 small (4 oz) can diced or whole jalapenos (not pickled)--about 4-5 jalapenos (or less if you don't like a lot of spice)
1/4 c. yellow onion, cut into quarters (you can also use dried minced onion)
1 tsp. garlic salt
1/2 to 1 tsp. salt (depending on how much you prefer)
1 tsp. cumin
1/2 tsp. sugar
1 tsp. lime juice

Place all of the ingredients together into a food processor or blender and puree until smooth. Serve with tortilla chips.


4 c. milk
1 c. sugar
1 c. shortening
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. baking powder
1 Tbl. vanilla
2 pkg. yeast
1 c. warm potato water (water that potatoes have been boiled in)
1 c. mashed potato

Mix the above ingredients and let set about 30 minutes or until foamy.

Then add:
4 well beaten eggs
1 Tbl. salt
12 c. flour

Knead, let rise until double in size. Roll out about 3/4" thick, cut as for doughnuts (we used two different sizes of circle cookie cutters). Let rise until double in size. Cook in hot vegetable oil, flipping when one side is golden. While still hot dip, in glaze.

1/2 c. boiling water
1 lb. powdered sugar
2 tbsp. butter
2 tbsp. vanilla

Chocolate Glaze:
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
4 Tbl. unsweetened cocoa powder
3 Tbl. milk or water
2 tsp. pure vanilla extract

In a medium bowl, whisk together powdered sugar and cocoa powder. Slowly stir in milk and vanilla extract. Whisk until silky and smooth. If you need a touch more milk to make this a dippable glaze, add a bit more.

Dip doughnuts in chocolate glaze and let rest to harden slightly.

Iced Oatmeal cookies

{someone posted these on pinterest and we tried them out...} Brandons new favorite cookie
Ingredients (2-3 dozen) For the Cookie:
1 cup butter, melted and slightly cooled 1 cup granulated sugar 1/2 cup brown sugar 2 eggs 2 tsp cinnamon 1 tsp nutmeg 1 tsp kosher salt 1 tsp baking soda 1 Tbsp baking powder 2 cup quick oats 2 cup flour For the Icing: 2 cup powdered sugar 1/2 cup heavy cream 1/2 tsp cinnamon
In food processor, add oatmeal and pulse until partly ground. Don’t make into a fine powder, leave some chunks. I pulsed mine 6 times, at 1-2 seconds each. Set aside.
In mixing bowl, blend together butter with sugars. Mix 1-2 minutes until combined. Add eggs, one at a time. Mix in remaining cookie ingredients and blend until thoroughly combined.
Drop by several tablespoons onto a parchment paper lined cookie sheet. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 14-16 minutes. I like mine a little bit crunchier, so I went closer to 16 minutes. Remove and cool.
To make glaze, whisk together powdered sugar with heavy cream and cinnamon until smooth. Frost each cookie and allow to harden. You can put them in refrigerator to speed up process (about 30 minutes).
