Rib Stickin' Ranch Vittles

2 cups sifted flour (white, wheat, buckwheat, or oat)
3 tsp. baking powder
3/4 tsp. salt
2 T. sugar
3 eggs, beaten
1 3/4 cup milk
1/2 cup vegetable oil

Sift dry ingredients together. Combine eggs, milk, and oil. Add to dry ingredients. Blend carefully until smooth. (Don't treat the batter like whipped cream or the waffles will be tough as boot leather!) Now, spoon the batter into a hot waffle iron. Cook it up, then dab on a little cow butter and syrup. Fry up a couple strips of bacon and a couple of "cackle berries" and savor the flavor!  Want a leg up on your busy day? Cook up a double batch. Freeze extras. Down the road...just microzap or toast.

Historic old Fort Bonneville, built in the late 1800s, is located next to her family's ranch.
