    From Karrie:

    Cucumber Salsa

    4 salad cucumbers (thinly sliced and then quartered or even smaller. You can use regular cuks but it tastes best if you cut out the seeds if they're bigger)
    1 onion, diced
    1/2 c sunflower seeds
    1 c craisins (dried cranberries)
    fresh or dried cilantro (I just add until I can taste it good, I love cilantro)
    1 tbl sugar
    3 tbl red wine vinegar

    (The smaller everything is cut up the better and then I just taste as I go until it tastes good. I never measure but I put about what I think I ususally do.)

    Then serve over Red Wine Vinegar Chicken.

    Red Wine Vinegar Chicken

    Simmer chicken breast in red wine vinegar (about 1 cup) mixed with sugar (about 2 tbl). It'll get kinda carmelized from the sugar.

    White Bread
    I make this often too

    1 and 1/8 cup hot water
    2 T melted butter
    1 t salt
    1/4 cup honey
    2 cups whole wheat flour
    1 cup bread machine flour
    1.5 t bread machine yeast

    I do this on the dough cycle, although you could just run the entire cycle... but I like to punch it down and let it rise 30 more minutes and then bake in the oven for 40 minutes at 350. It's lighter that way and looks better. My DH resists healthy eating unless it tastes really good, and he LOVES this bread.

    Classic White Bread (though I've made it with wheat):

    1 1/2 c water
    2 TBSP butter
    4 cups bread flour (or half bread and half wheat or any combo you choose)
    3 TBSP dry milk powder
    2 TBSP sugar
    2 tsp salt
    1 1/2 tsp bread machine yeast
    (It's for a 2 lb loaf).

    My other favorite "plain" bread (I don't think I've ever tried wheat flour with this one):

    Sally Lunn

    2 eggs, + enough water to equal 1 1/3 cups
    1 1/2 tsp salt
    2 TBSP sugar
    1/3 c butter (softened)
    4 c bread flour
    1 1/2 tsp bread machine yeast
    (Also for a 2 lb loaf)

    I have the Betty Crocker Best Bread Machine cook book and it's never steered me wrong!
