White Bread For The Bread Machine
I have made this recipe (unaltered) twice this week already. It is a keeper. Beautiful, the best I have ever made in my machine. This recipe is 5 stars. **Suggestions and comments.. I have also altered this recipe. However, my rating is on the unaltered version. I also made this with all purpose flour. It did not rise as well. In fact it was about 30 percent smaller. Of course, that made it dense. But, it was still yummy. I also made this with olive oil instead of vegetable oil. It was a tiny bit smaller, but the taste was even better. I read some reviews that suggested decreasing the amount of salt for taste. I realize that salt adds flavor. It also governs the power of the yeast. Without salt your bread will have a coarser quality because it rose too fast. Too little salt will make the dough rise fast that it will fall before it is done baking. Too much salt will kill the yeast. Salt also helps the bread from getting stale to fast.

Quick and Easy Pizza Crust
Awesome recipe. I've made it many times. The whole family loves it. I bake it in my cast iron pancake griddle. Also, I use all-purpose flour, because that's what I always have on hand. The bad review that said it "poured out" when they used all-purpose flour.... doesn't make any sense. I'm thinking they might have gotten distracted and altered the recipe by mistake. I wish they would try it again. I highly recommend this recipe.

Pineapple Chicken Delight
I hate to be the one to say this. But I feel that it's necessary. My entire family did not care for this. I fought with my children to eat this, and my husband said "well at least our stomachs will be full". I think I'm a pretty good cook, but it just tastes like cooked chicken and potatoes with a bottle of barbeque sauce dumped on it. That's it. No offense to the seemingly nice lady who submitted the recipe. It just did not suit our taste. P.S. I followed the directions as is and did not make any alterations.
