You get into hunting, trapping, fishing, snowmachining, skiing, snowboarding, flying, hobbies, etc.?


Hunting, trapping and fishing are the most fun here.
Working on making some custom Ula's, have some antique ones.

I like to curl up with a good book or cook. I've never really enjoyed being cold despite the fact that I was born and raised in Alaska.

Well I couldn't afford a snowmachine so I turned wood bowls, and built furniture. Also hiked, camped and hunted in the winter.

Shoveling snow, snowmachining, snowboarding, snow skiing, snowshoeing...just about anything to do with snow. Or anything you'd do inside anywhere else. Lots of indoor projects get put off in the summer because you need to do outside stuff then, so we've got plenty of stuff we want to do inside, like painting, some woodworking projects, learning to bake bread, brewing beer, etc.

Slurp! There is no finer aroma than fresh bread coming out of the oven!

All the women in Point Hope and quite a few in Barrow say - I bake the best bread they have ever tasted! When I raised my sons - we couldn't afford to buy bread. not the way four of them went through it. I would bake my own every other day for years. I learned by watching!! One Eskimo woman.

5 lbs of bleached white flour

One sugar container (restrauant type) full of sugar.

combine the two and mix by hand.


Make a hole in the center and add 3/4 cup of vegtable oil

Pour in one cup of water w/ 3 small packs of yeast (dissolved) into oil @ correct temp. 120 - 130 F

Pour in 5 cups of liquid powerded milk @ same temp as yeast.

Knead, mix, pound, that dough until it is all shaped to the right consistency. Use brush and brush inside of big clean mixing bowl with veg oil a very light coat.

brush a coat of oil all over the dough, place into clean well oiled bowl and cover with towel and place up high away from drafts.

Let rise for 2 - 3 hours. Punch it down and knead it a few times. roll into balls and place in muffin pans or fill bread pan or meatloaf pan 1/2 full and let rise.

Preheat oven to 325 - place muffin pans in way back.. 25 minutes remove them and get the butter ready after you brush another final coat of veg oil on the muffins or bread before you remove them from metal container.

40 minutes for bread. When you toast home made bread in your toaster; you will never go back to store bought bread ever again!!


That was the recipie for plain bisquits and bread

INSERT whole container of freeze fried onion flakes into the dry flower and mix.. Whoa momma !!! Them women went nutz !!

One woman; came to my house three times; I followed all your steps carefully she said; It just doesn't taste the same. I looked at her and said.. Eva, your hands are too tiny. Make your husband knead the dough for you... and as he is learning how to do it.. make him mad so he will POUND that dough and mix it throughly.. she laughed and came back a few days later..- it worked she said with a big smile!!!
