This is our favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe for this altitude, but we prefer ours soft & chewy for munching or dunking:

Make sure you use unsalted butter when it's called for. Baking soda needs acidity to work, thus the ACV. :-)

Pie in the Sky is available at Big Bear Library. Someone gave it to me as a gift and it’s a good cookbook.

Got my mom's bread machine a while back, ive had good luck with the lighter breads per recipe, not so much with the heavier ones.

Bread making at altitude is a struggle and an art. Use any 'sponge' method- proofing the yeast first. I have never used a bread machine but I know it requires more time to knead it then dth. Mine are usually twice as tall as the pan. (I also think using powdered milk helps the texture) Tassajara Bread Book = best book ever for making great breads!

When i got the bread machine a series of 5 recipe books came with it. Most recipes call for quick rising yeast, all ive had to do was make sure everything was at room temperature and use warm water when starting a loaf, super easy to do, usually about 2 or 3 hours once you add everything and start it up. Hard part is not peeking once its going...

Great to hear MaryW! Thank you for the heads up! Got a tweet that the roadway was open at 12:10. Firefighters mopping up the fire noted below. Be safe and yes, highway 38 is a nice ride... Really prefer it over the 330/18 route (especially being out east).

11:45pm 4/22/19 CHP was setting up cones and flares at the bottom of the hill. Offer said 330 was closed to traffic. Cars diverted off at Highland.... nice long trip around to Highway 38. Beautiful moon though!

Vegetation Fire - HWY330 at the bottom east of the 330 and north of Highland Ave. Size-up is 150x150 foot spot, medium fuels, slow ROS. Couple transients in the fire area. ME228, ME226, ME241, & ME227 all enroute or onscene. Hope they pick it up quick. Just FYI if anyone is driving DTH right now.
