Lobster Pasta
I agree with many of the other responses....too much cinnamon, but if you cut way back...1 tsp was still almost too much, it is a very good recipe! Can't imagine what it would be like with a whole Tbsp of cinnamon....

Jo's Rosemary Bread
EXCELLENT!!! If you don't care for rosemary, then don't add the full amount (easy enough to do). I add garlic powder. Tender inside, and wonderful crunchy crust (even in the bread machine!).
