I think Cuddles is going thru his terrible twos. He is in to everything. Right now he is in the kitchen pulling out all my pots and pans on one shelf. He is planning to make a new sleeping place for himself. He often changes is sleeping area It takes him all day because where he sleeps he keeps all his favorite toys and treasured pieces of paper he has found on the floor. He is so funny because everything in his treasure chest has to be where he sleeps. So far today he has taken several bird (now featherless) toys, my lint remover roller, my wash cloth, a sponge, and several pens and stylus for my tablets,

Cuddles looks out a window in my bedroom many hours of the day Outside the window a bush has grown up to the point he can't watch the birds as well. I hear him talking to the bush all day long. He gets mad every so often and hisses at the bush. He is so verbal. If he doesn't like something he lets whatever it is know. His ears go back and he tells it just what he thinks. To him it doesn't matter if it is a bush or me. When I tell him no he makes faces at me.

The other day I saw a little tiny snake outside. It was about 3 to 4 inches long was was silver. At first I thought it was a lizard but looking closer it was a itty bitty tiny snake. Does anyone know what kind of snake it is. Most snakes scare me but this one was so little and such a shiny silver color.

It has been so hot here. Mostly in the 103-108 range. My car's air conditioner no longer works so I stay home almost all the time. My living room is cool with a refrigerated air conditioner but the cool air never makes it to the bedroom. I have tower fans that circulate the air which helps. Usually the 100 + weather comes in July but this year it is early. I am sure July will be hot too.

I have enjoyed your newsletters for so many years. Here is a repeat of one of my very favorite recipes
for all the newbies. Such a good one after a BBQ for the leftover hot dog rolls.

Does anyone have any good gluten free recipes? Which type of flour is the best and closest tasting to regular
white wheat flour.I have seen Bob's Red Mill one to one gluten free flour and wonder what it is like and if it works for any recipe calling for unbleached flour
We are going on Dr. Joel Wallachs gluten free diet and protocol and have to make the change.

Chocolate Cake with Peaches Recipe

1 bag (16 oz. size) frozen sliced peaches, thawed
1 package chocolate cake mix (2 layer mix)
1/3 cup applesauce
1/3 cup heavy whipping cream
3 eggs
1/4 cup peach preserves
3 1/4 cups powdered sugar
1/2 cup butter (do not substitute margarine)
3 tablespoons water
3 tablespoons heavy whipping cream
3 tablespoons peach preserves

Heat oven to 350 F. Grease two 9 inch round cake pans. Reserve eight peach slices for the garnish. Put in sealed container and refrigerator. In a blender, cover and blend the remaining peaches until pureed. Reserve 1/4 cup of the pureed peaches for the filling. Cover and refrigerate.

In a large bowl, beat the remaining pureed peaches, cake mix, oil, 1/3 cup whipping cream, and the eggs with an electric mixer on medium speed for 2 minutes. Pour into prepared cake pans. Bake 9 inch round cake pans for 30 minutes or until a wooden toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Carefully remove from pans to wire rack. Cool completely for one hour.

In a small bowl, stir together reserved 1/4 cup pureed peaches and 1/4 cup peach preserves. Set aside for the filling.

In a medium bowl, beat the powdered sugar, butter, and whipping cream with a spoon or with an electric mixer on low speed until smooth and spreadable. Place one cake layer, rounded side down, on a serving plate. Spread the peach filling over the layer to within 1/4 inch of the edge. Top with second layer, rounded side up. Frost side and top of cake with frosting.

In a small bowl, stir 3 tablespoons of the peach preserves. Carefully spoon preserves around top edge of the cake, allowing some to drizzle down the side. Just before serving, cut remaining peach slices lengthwise in half and place on top of the cake.

The Perfect Crust

There are tricks to making perfect pie crusts. The first is maintaining the correct balance of ingredients and the second is temperature. Pie crusts are a mixture of flour, fat, and water. The best recipes seem to have a common ratio of these ingredients: 1/4 cup water to 1/2 cup fat to 2 1/2 cups flour. (The flour should be measured by spooning the flour into the measure, not scooping it. Scooping packs the flour and overloads the formula.) Add a teaspoon of salt and you have a recipe for a double crust.

For the fat, you can use either butter or shortening or a combination. (Butter is 15% water so cut back slightly on the water when using butter—though the ratio is forgiving enough that you probably won't notice the difference.) If you are making more than one pie, just change the amounts but keep the same proportions.

Temperature may be even more important than balance—especially if you are using butter. The trick is to keep the butter and the dough cold enough that the butter pieces remain intact. If it gets too warm, it melts and saturates the flour. (The same thing happens with shortening but the melting temperature of shortening is higher.) It's the little pieces of butter that makes the crust flaky. As the butter heats in baking, little pockets of steam are formed from the butter nodules.

To keep your dough cold, use only the coldest butter and water. Then refrigerate the dough for an hour before forming the pie. If making multiple pies, take only enough dough from the refrigerator for one pie keeping the rest cold until you are ready to for it.
