Baked Oatmeal

Amy is sharing this recipe with us! Thanks Amy!

3 Cups quick rolled oats
2 Tsp. baking powder
1 Tsp. salt
1/3 Cup melted butter
1 Cup packed brown sugar
1 Tsp. ground cinnamon
1 Cup milk
2 eggs, beaten
Mix all ingredients together and pour into a buttered 9"x9" baking pan. Bake at 350 for 35-40 minutes. Serve warm with milk or applesauce. For variety, swirl in jam, peanut butter or flavored syrup before baking. Chopped dried fruits or nuts add a nice texture.
(I used regular oats and it worked just fine. I also added raisins before baking. Make sure you mix well. I didn't and got all the salt in my bowl, blech.)

Taco Meat

3 to 5 lb Roast
1 teaspoon of cumin
1 teaspoon of chili powder
1/2 teaspoon of salt

Mix together cumin, chili powder and salt. Place roast in crock pot and rub the seasoning all over the roast. Cook on low for 8 to 10 hours. I find that I have to cook my meat for a long time. Shred meat and use for tacos or burritos!

Graham Crackers!

This recipe is from a booklet our church puts out. You can go here to see the book.
I changed it a little bit!

Mix together:
1⁄2 cup evaporated milk
(or 1⁄3 cup dry milk powder plus 1⁄2 cup water)
2 tablespoons lemon juice or vinegar

Mix the following ingredients in the order listed. Blend
well to keep oil in emulsion.
1 cup brown sugar
1⁄2 cup honey or white sugar
1 cup oil
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 eggs, beaten slightly

Combine above two mixtures. Add the following:
6 cups whole wheat or graham flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon soda

Divide mixture into four equal parts. Place each part on
a greased and floured cookie sheet. Roll from center to
edges until about 1⁄8 inch (0.3 centimeters) thick. Prick
with a fork.
Bake at 375°F (191°C) for about 15 minutes or until
light brown. Remove from oven and cut in squares
immediately. Makes 60 crackers.
