Ok here is the chicken craft I mentioned earlier. The green chick looked better before the puppy chewed off his face and he had to get a new one, which for some reason seems to be on there crooked...go figure. Anway, while I was thinking about it, I wanted to post two recipes that I made today that are stand-by favorites, never-fail and yummy. Hope you enjoy them as much as my family does.

Buttermilk Chocolate Cake:
1 c. buttermilk
2 t. baking soda
2 c. sugar
2 eggs

2. Mix together sugar, eggs, cocoa, vegetable oil and vanilla.
3. Add boiling water to buttermilk mixture then add to sugar mixture.
4. Add flour.
5. Pour into 9x13 greased and floured pan.

Buttermilk Bread
1/4 c. warm water
1 T. yeast
1 t plus 1/4 c. sugar
1 1/2 c. buttermilk
2 t. salt
4 3/4 c. flour

1. In cup, combine water, yeast and teaspoon sugar. Stir to dissolve. Let sit 5 minutes.
2. Meanwhile heat buttermilk, butter and remaining sugar to warm (butter does not have to be completely melted).
3. In large boil, combine salt and flour. Gradually add buttermilk mixture. Stir with wooden spoon until blended. (I use my stand mixer).
4. Knead 10 minutes. Let raise. Punch down. Cut in half. Place each half in a greased laof pan.
