Peppy's Pita Bread

Reviewed: May 12, 2010
Wow! This recipe is fantastic! After reading several sad online blogs about pitas that wouldn't puff I must admit I was nervous about trying this recipe, but in the end they turned out great! I rolled the dough very thin (based on blog recommendations) and then let it rise for 15 minutes in a warm place before putting them in the oven. Next, I placed the pitas directly onto a well-seasoned pan I'd been heating in the oven. I put the pitas back in, tossed a handful of ice cubes onto the oven floor (this keeps the dough soft but not soggy), cooked them for 2-4 minutes and then flipped for another 3 minutes of cooking. They puffed perfectly and turned a beautiful golden brown. When I pulled them out I put them into a sealed brown paper bag until they cooled and kept making new batches. Since I made mine smaller than the recommended size I ended up with about 15-20 six inch pita pockets. I couldn't be happier!

Bread Machine Focaccia

Reviewed: May 12, 2010
This recipe was delicious and super easy with the help of the breadmaker! I added fresh herbs to the dough from my garden (basil, rosemary, and a couple leaves of oregano) and found that it gave the bread a delicious flavor. Also, I spread the dough out onto a 9x13 pan and found it provided a great shape for easy sandwich making later. Yum!

Pudding-Topped Fruit Salad

Reviewed: May 12, 2010
I was going to make this for a potluck but after realizing that it takes time for the pudding to set up I had to postpone my potluck plans. But it all worked out in the end because now I have this delicious dish all for myself! This recipe is fantastic! I used canned peaches instead of fresh since they aren't in season here and added fresh blackberries and it turned out delicious. I've been eating it twice a day since my failed potluck adventure and I have no complaints! Yum.

Smooth Sweet Tea

Reviewed: May 12, 2010
This recipe is perfect! As other reviewers have mentioned the pinch of baking soda really takes the bitterness out of the black tea and I find that the 3/4 cup of sugar is just the right sweetness for me. I'm a huge tea drinker so I've also adapted the recipe for a number of other iced teas. I have a nice Ginger Peach Black Tea that I've been making for years with fresh ginger, peach slices, and fresh mint and this recipe makes it even better! Also, I've found that it works nicely with herbal teas like mint and lemon balm, although for lighter teas I think it's better to cut the sugar down to half a cup to not overwhelm the delicate flavors.

Caramel Apple Pork Chops

Reviewed: May 12, 2010
This recipe is amazing! I've never really liked pork chops in their typical fried and overcooked form-- but this recipe was delicious, nutritious, and super easy! To save time on clean up I coated the pan with aluminum foil before putting in the pork chops and afterwards I just crumpled up the mess. Also, I used Fuji apples since I didn't have Granny Smiths and kept the skin on for the color. The whole thing turned out melt in your mouth good! Thank you so much! I'm going to make this again and again!
