Spaghetti Carbonara II

a.. 1 pound spaghetti
b.. 1 tablespoon olive oil
c.. 8 slices bacon, diced
d.. 1 tablespoon olive oil
e.. 1 onion, chopped
f.. 1 clove garlic, minced
g.. 1/4 cup dry white wine (optional)
h.. 4 eggs
i.. 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
j.. 1 pinch salt and black pepper to taste
k.. 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
l.. 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese

1.. In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook spaghetti pasta until al dente. Drain well. Toss with 1 tablespoon of olive oil, and set aside.
2.. Meanwhile in a large skillet, cook chopped bacon until slightly crisp; remove and drain onto paper towels. Reserve 2 tablespoons of bacon fat; add remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil, and heat in reused large skillet. Add chopped onion, and cook over medium heat until onion is translucent. Add minced garlic, and cook 1 minute more. Add wine if desired; cook one more minute.
3.. Return cooked bacon to pan; add cooked and drained spaghetti. Toss to coat and heat through, adding more olive oil if it seems dry or is sticking together. Add beaten eggs and cook, tossing constantly with tongs or large fork until eggs are barely set. Quickly add 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, and toss again. Add salt and pepper to taste (remember that bacon and Parmesan are very salty).
4.. Serve immediately with chopped parsley sprinkled on top, and extra Parmesan cheese at table.

Brazil Nut Bark Candy

12 oz Semisweet chocolate pieces
1 T Butter
1 c Chopped Brazil nuts
1/2 c Seedless raisins

nuts and raisins. Spread on cookie sheet lined with waxed paper. Chill until
firm. Break into pieces. Store in refrigerator.

Bread Machine Bread Bowls

1 cup water
2-3/4 cups bread flour
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1-1/2 teaspoons bread machine yeast
1 egg yolk
1 tablespoon water

Measure carefully, placing all ingredients EXCEPT egg yolk and 1 tablespoon
of water into the bread machine pan in the order recommended by the
manufacturer. Select Dough/Manual cycle. Grease the OUTSIDES of six
10-ounce pyrex custard cups. Place the cups upside down on an ungreased
cookie sheet. Divide the dough into 6 equal pieces. Pat or roll each piece
into a 7-inch circle on a lightly floured surface. Shape the dough circles
over the outsides of the prepared custard cups. Do not allow the dough to
curl under the edges of the custard cups. Cover and let rise in a warm
place for 15 to 20 minutes or until slightly puffy.

Heat the oven to 375 degrees. Mix the egg yolk and 1 tablespoon of water;
brush gently over the bread bowls. Bake for 18 to 22 minutes, or until the
bread bowls are golden brown. Carefully lift the bread bowls off the
custard cups. Be VERY careful -- both the bread and the custard cups will
be very hot. Cool the bread bowls upright on a wire rack. This recipe
yields 6 bowls.

And though I oft have passed them by, A day will come at last when I
Shall take the hidden paths that run West of the Moon, East of the Sun."
