Jay's Signature Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2007
This is the only pizza crust recipe I use. 3 1/3 c. flour is not enough flour, unless you do 3 1/3 cup packed flour. I usually up mine to about 4c. flour (measured by weight or by spooning flour into a measuring cup). I throw everything into the bread machine on the dough setting and omit the oil. I have used this with whole wheat flour or white whole wheat flour, and prefer the texture to AP flour or bread flour. (However, the dough does not rise as much with whole wheat flour.) I pre-bake the crust (after you roll out the dough, poke the crust with a fork a few times otherwise you'll have bubbles baked into the crust) for about 10 minutes and then add sauce and toppings. I use a pizza stone unless I'm making chicago style deep dish...then I use a cast iron pan.

Hearty Vegetable Lasagna

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2007
Great recipe! I substituted shredded zucchini for bell pepper (personal preference) and added frozen spinach (drained) to the ricotta. I also used no boil lasagna noodles (I run the noodles under hot water for a few seconds before I put them in the pan). I bake covered tightly with foil for about 50 minutes at 350 and then take the foil off to brown the cheese for 5-10 minutes. Make sure you either tent the foil or use a non stick foil or the cheese will stick to the foil and pull off the lasagna.

Bread Machine Challah I

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2007
Good recipe. I braid my challah, but I've received a lot of compliments using this recipe. In fact, I was designated THE challah baker for all future events after my first attempt with this recipe! I follow as instructed, but only put the bread machine on the dough setting. I take out the dough, braid, brush with an egg wash and bake at 350 for about 30 minutes (or until perfectly brown and pretty).

Tasty Buns

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2007
I've tried 5 different bun recipes and this is my favorite. I use half bread flour and half whole wheat (or white-whole wheat), and throw everything in my bread machine on the dough cycle. I buy my yeast in bulk, but I only put in 1 package worth (2.5 tsp) of yeast. The bun is a little sweet, but everyone seems to enjoy them that way!

Awesome Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2007
Simple recipe, made a great gravy after some changes. First, I seasoned the roast with garlic powder, season-all and freshly ground black pepper and seared. Then, to the condensed soup, I added a bouillon cube, ground chipotle pepper, a whole onion (sliced), 5 cloves of garlic (roughly chopped), a couple dashes of Worcestershire sauce, and a can of stewed tomatoes. The cut of meat I had was a bit tough, but the gravy more than made up for it. Will definitely make again!
