Chocolate Syrup
This really is the best recipe for home made chocolate syrup. I’m sure it’ll taste richer with milk vs. water (save heavy cream for fudge sauce). To refill a Hershey’s bottle, scale up recipe to 24 servings=1½ pint=3 cups=24oz. REVIEW SUMMARY: TOO THIN? Be patient. It only thickens after it’s chilled. IN A HURRY? For immediate use, thicken with one of the following: 1) (as suggested already) heat sugar with water until sugar dissolves, then add cocoa, or 2) reduce water from 1½ to just 1 cup, 3) for each 1 cup of syrup, mix cocoa with: (a) 1 tbs cornstarch or (b) 1 tsp unflavored gelatin or (c) ½ tsp xanthan gum (that’s what’s in the original Hershey’s syrup). if using (a) let boil for 1 more minute or it won’t thicken. TO MAKE SUGAR FREE substitute ¾ c agave nectar for each 1c sugar and reduce recipe liquid by 1/3c. TO EXTEND SHELF LIFE, add ½ tsp citric acid to each 1 cup syrup and stir well.

Pumpkin Frozen Yogurt
this would be a 5 star recipe for me if a vanilla yogurt was used. Greek-style yogurt is not Greek yogurt (FAGE). you can't have 2 strong different flavors in the same recipe--hence the mixed reviews.

San Francisco Sourdough Bread
Let me just say that SF sourdough bread is no longer possible in SF only. unbeknownst to them, SF gave the La Brea Los Angeles Bakery the "best SF sourdough" award in a contest, and went ballistic when they found out that the winner was not a San Franciscan! Tests on the SF water proved wrong all claims that SF sourdough bread can only be made there! Whether a beginner or an expert in sourdough bread this recipe is all you need.
