Play Dough

2 c. flour
2 c. water
1 c. salt
2 Tbsp. oil
1 Tbsp. cream of tartar
Food coloring

Mix all ingredients together (except food coloring) and heat over LOW on stove, stirring.  When the dough pulls away from the sides and clumps in the center, remove the pan from heat and allow the dough to cool.  Keep stirring and cooking until the dough is dry and feels like play dough.

Flaky muffins

6 eggs
1 c. flour
1 c. milk (almond milk works fine)
1 Tbsp. sugar
1/2 tsp. salt

Preheat oven to 375. Place a pat of butter in each circle of 2 muffin pans. Melt in oven.  Beat the remaining 5 ingredients together.  Place batter in muffin tins (each muffin will have only a bit of batter but will rise a lot).  Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until golden brown.

These are good alone, with fruit on top, chicken salad, etc.
