Amish White Bread
Meh. Not sure if I should be blaming how the recipe was posted or how allrecipes corrected the ingredients per serving size requested, but I attempted to do 12 servings instead of 24. When following the recipe the way it was suggested it was way too wet to the point that the consistency was comparable to pancake batter. I added probably 1-2 more cups of flour to get the dough going and I think that may not have even been enough. I let the bread rise for 2 hours the first round and 1 hour once in the bread pan. Once in the oven it didn't rise very well, I'd say the height was probably 1/2 as high as a normal loaf of bread. It was pretty yeasty and very sweet. 30 minutes was also not enough baking time - there were pockets throughout the loaf that were not fully cooked. I've baked quite a few loaves of bread so I'm not sure it was my fault how it turned out. My husband said he liked it, and I'm certainly going to eat it, but I'm not sure I'd make it again.

Meatball Nirvana
I hate to admit that I wasn't crazy about this recipe. I doubled it, but only used enough onions for 1 pound and still felt it was a bit much. If I were to make these again I would used the spice dried minced onions or chopped onions, probably 3-4 TBSP. The spices all together were good, and I used the recipe for meatball subs with garlic french bread. For those that love onions, I do too. I cooked the meatballs for 25 minutes, and the onions were still a bit crunchy when finished. They just weren't the best I'd ever tasted.

Hamburger Steak with Onions and Gravy
My husband LOVED this! Super easy to do, and I already had all the ingredients on hand so it was truly a no-fuss meal. I started making it at 6, and at 6:53 I am laying on the couch STUFFED and writing this review! We served them with mashed potatoes, and because of that the only thing I would change for next time is to double the onions and gravy as we positioned the meat on top and poured the sauce over everything. Thank you for posting this!
