If you enjoy the the wind on your face and open sky before you, you have come to a good place to find the romance and flavor of the West.

Indian Fry Bread

3 cups flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup warm water
3 tablespoons honey
Oil, or lard

Mix warm water and honey; mix flour, baking powder, and salt. Roll out on floured surface. Pull off large egg-sized balls of dough and roll out into thin rounds with a hole in the middle.

Fry rounds in hot oil until bubbles appear on the dough, turn over, and fry on the other side until golden.

Hang on rawhide cord and eat as needed. If the bread becomes too hard, soak in water or coffee.

This was a travel, survival food of Indians long before the pioneers moved west. The people of the frontier soon learned how useful the bread was, especially for traveling.

About Me

I love the wind in my face, the open sky before me, the romance and flavor of the West, but, most of all, our loving and living God, who created it all. I love how He works out His plans in the realm of human events, which is His Story. I have been blessed with a gift: a compulsion to write Historical and present-day novels set in the American West that demonstrate His power to transform ordinary people into true heroes and heroines. I am just a scribe really. I find the joy of participating in the creation of inspirational fiction indescribable. May our Lord Jesus Christ receive all of the credit and be glorified.
