Quick and Easy Pizza Crust
This was my first time making pizza! It was great! Since I am originally from New York, I made mine New York style and thinned that crust! Wow! The recipe made two pizza's. I let my fingers do the talking and added flour slowly as I kneaded/needed. However, I need a pizza stone because the bottom of the pizza crust did not brown to my taste. The recipe itself was a great success.

French Country Bread
Lots of fun to make! Although this was my first time making bread by following the instructions I was able to make great tasting bread. I added a tablespoon of sugar, more salt. Just before cooking I lightly covered the tops with the mixture of an egg yolk (+ 1tablespoon water) to get a crunchy crust. In addition, instead of 1/2 wheat I used 2 cups white whole wheat flour that I made on a VitaMix blender. Because of the wheat it came out tighter but great tasting and looking. Pictures will be uploaded. My picky hubby and kids all loved it!

Hamantashen II
The taste of the dough is great. I cooled it in the frige for about an hour. I followed the instructions and used 1 tablespoon preserves: apricot for some, strawberry for others. The first batch came out awful because 1 tablespoon of preserves is too much, it boiled and ran out. I tried different amounts and settled on 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon. the kids in my daughter's class loved them and asked for seconds. I will make these again and again with my kids.
