Boiled Bagels
Once you make these at home, you will NEVER buy bagels again! These are the real deal - chewy inside, with the baked crust on the outside, ideal for toasting! I've made these about six times, using a stand mixer (not kneading by hand). Here are the modifications needed: 1. Once all flour has been added, you will knead it in the mixer for 5-10 minutes until elastic and shiny on the surface. 2. Cover mixing bowl with plastic wrap and rise for one hour. 3. Start water to boil in the last 10 minutes of rising, then shape each bagel as desired, resting them under a damp cloth. 4. No need to wait 20 min for a second rise, by the time the water is boiling and you've finished shaping (5-10 min), you can start boiling the bagels in batches of 3-4 per pot. 5. TIMING adjustment is critical! Only 1 minute per side - then onto a cookie rack to drain. 5. Once they are all boiled, blot them dry on bottom, transfer to greased cookie sheet. 6. Brush with an egg-white wash and add top with desired add-ons (poppy seeds, garlic powder, salt, etc.). Baking time is 20-25 min as per directions. Wonderful!

Extreme Chocolate Cake
The best chocolate cake I have made from! Very chocolatey, heavy, dense, and much like the professional cake that would be purchased at a fine restaurant!

Candied Apples III
These are the real deal - the ones you find at County Fairs - bright red with a hard shell! Some caveats - 1. it takes about 20 minutes get the candies melted and up to 310 degrees (i.e. the hard crack stage) and 2. as you dip, you run out of candy, and what is left behind cools and won't turn around the apples well. I would suggest that you DOUBLE the recipe to fully coat 12+ apples. and 3. SPRAY the waxed paper with PAM oil before you put the apples on or the wax melts to the apples. Not sure I'd make these again given the time it took but if you like candied apples this is a great recipe.
