I love my Zojirushi BB-PAC20 Home Bakery Virtuoso Breadmaker! I just made a white loaf last night so that we could have sandwiches this week. The whole house smelled like baked bread and it was wonderful! I thank everyone here for all of the recipes, especially the ones for the bread machines. I am so glad you guys are enjoying yours as much as I do. Have you made the chocolate bread yet? YUM! I promise to get here more frequently.

Your welcome, I love mine!

Someday you should list all of your gadgets and have a contest to guess how many you do have...

PB Patti ... I just finished posting this very special message to you in RAOK and will repeat here in the "Kindle Kitchen". You are a true gem!!!!


PB Patti ... I want to let you know that when I opened the mailbox this morning, and found your beautiful card of wedding wishes, it brought sunshine to our lives.

May your kindness return to you in the same beautiful way it was offered.

Hugs and Thank You very much ... Joyce

Pipe ... Hello, and I'm so happy to see that you have found your way to the "Kindle Kitchen" for a short visit.

You should be happy that I use the Dough Boy reference because he is one of my favorites and I truly love him so much. So, I guess you can say that you rate right up there with him ... :-)

Please come back and visit more often ... Hubby and I have missed you very much!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ah shucks mame, you're making me blush...

BMW ... Yes, we love our Zojirushi BB-PAC20 Home Bakery Virtuoso Breadmaker. I haven't made the white loaf yet. I made the peanut butter bread that I posted the recipe in the old thread yesterday, and it was absolutey out of this world.

I've been looking at the chocolate recipe and thinking that should be next. When are you going to give it a try?

And, I'm holding you to your promise to get here more frequently ... Hugs and Miss You, Joyce

"Hubby and I"...I can't express how happy that makes me without tearing up alittle. :)

In reply to an earlier post on Oct 23, 2012 2:26:29 PM PDT
Pipe ... Now wipe those tears away!

We stock up well on Kleenex, and if you need me to send you a "rescue" package, please let me know. :-)

In reply to an earlier post on Oct 23, 2012 2:28:16 PM PDT
PB Patti ... What a wonderful idea!

One of these days, I will start a long list of all our kitchen gadgets, and then we will have a little contest. I wonder how long the sheet of paper needs to be for me to make this list. Oh, my ... I might even shock myself ... :-)

I've already made the chocolate bread and it was very good. I also made the apple bread and a couple of gluten free loaves. The only one that turned out ok was the zucchini bread and that is because I had it on medium crust instead of light. The medium crust setting tends to dry the outside of the bread out too much I think. My recipe book that came with my machine has two different chocolate bread recipes. I tried the one that you just add a couple of Tbsp. of cocoa to the recipe and it wasn't nearly chocolatey enough so I made the other one that has more cocoa and chocolate chips in it. It is very good but again I would only do the light crust setting or it will be crunchy on the sides and bottom too.

Do the duplicates go to the CA home?

Hi All

I used to lurk all the time, I would read the posts and it felt like I knew you all personally. Then, life got busy and I got so far behind with all the posts, I just gave I see a lot has happened, congratulations Joyce, I wish you and hubby much happiness! I'm glad a new home was made here, it seems very welcoming, and it should be much easier for me to keep up! Thank you for taking the time to do this!

In reply to an earlier post on Oct 23, 2012 2:53:13 PM PDT
Yes, duplicates are going to the CA home. We have four bread machines (I have 3 and hubby has 1), so I think we can spare one for CA. And, the list goes on and on.

happykindler ... HI!

So great to hear from you, and I do hope you will have more time to keep up with the thread.

And, thanks so much for your wishes of congratulations for hubby and I. It is deeply appreciated.

Hi Happykindler (Cher)

Haven't seen you in such a long time. Glad you could make it to the new Kindle Kitchen thread. Joyce and I have missed you. Hope you choose to become a regular poster again. Have a great day!

Hubby (Avi)

BMW ... I think the one with the chocolate chips is the one that I have been keeping an eye on. I will take your tip when I make and use the light crust. I have found that some arranging of the dough is necessary to keep the ball in the center of the pan when it begins the rise cycle. The first loaf I made (can't remember which recipe) was higher on one end than the other. So, some new things to learn in order to make that perfect loaf of bread. As I bake other recipes, I will keep you apprised of which ones turn out good. But, the peanut butter recipe turned out to be the perfect loaf with a tender crust, nice texture and delicious. This recipe was from one of my bread machine cookbooks and we changed the ingredient amounts for "Zoey". And, it worked out fantastic.

PB Patti,

Joyce has told me over the phone about the nice card you sent and I can't wait to see it. Thank you for your kindness.

All my stuff from here will be transported to the California house. Our kitchen there will not be an nearly as well equipped as her Iowa home. There will be a lot of gadgets on our California shopping list once we get there.

i think asking readers about their kitchen gadgets is a GREAT idea! i would further subdivide the question into gadgets requiring electricity and those that don't! the FBAC forum has a friday question almost every week, and it never ceases to amaze me that people can answer the same question in SO many ways! personally, i LOVE kitchen gadgets, electric and otherwise, but i would be very curious to see what other people have just for fun, and what they consider absolutely necessary. i guess that could be ANOTHER question for another day!

I told Joyce she should make a list of her gadgets and have a contest as to how many he has, sounds like you could do the same...(I think she has you beat though)

Question of the day???

What is your favorite gadget?

Mine is the bottle with pour spout that you use for oil and vinegar, I ot a very decorative one to match my kitchen and put dish detergent in it and place by the faucet. Works great for me. I change the color of detergent for the seasons/holidays. Orange for fall, green for Christmas etc.

booknuts ... Your idea is fantastic, too! Guess, we will try several different gadget ideas and have a ball, and not doubt, some laughter, too!

<shuffling in dragging little red wagon behind>

Hey! I found you guys....brought all my cook books and recipe boxes in the wagon, just in case.

Oh look, there just happens to be a bottle of bubbly to celebrate the new room. Everyone brought their favorite bubbly flute, right???

btw, Joyce thanks for all you do here. I appreciate it!

(Makes: 2-1/2 dozen)

2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1-1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup canned pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie filling)
1 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 large egg
2 teaspoons molasses
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
4 drops red food coloring (optional - makes cookies a deeper color and pretty)
3/4 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
3/4 cup milk chocolate chips

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. In a mixing bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and salt, set aside.
3. In the bowl of an electric stand mixer, combine pumpkin puree, granulated sugar, vegetable oil, egg, molasses, vanilla and optional food coloring. Blend mixture until combined.
4. With mixer on low speed, slowly add in flour mixture and mix just until combine, scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed.
5. With a rubber spatula, fold in chocolate chips.
6. Drop dough 2 tablespoons at a time (try to pile them high for less spreading - therefore a thicker cookie) onto Silpat lined or greased baking sheets.
7. Bake in preheated oven 12 - 14 minutes until cookies are golden brown and nearly set. Allow to cool several minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
8. Store in a single layer in an airtight container (some people prefer them cold so you can also store them in the refrigerator if you'd like).
