Gingerbread Boys
Great! For our own preference, I used half King Arthur white/whole wheat flour, and half King Arthur unbleached all-purpose. I used 1 cup organic white sugar, and 1/2 cup regular golden brown sugar. Grandma's molasses instead of dark corn syrup. And I divided the batch into 3, made into disks, wrapped in plastic wrap and chilled for 2 hours. Easy to roll, perfect soft texture, mild flavor. I would prefer them spicier, but they're good as is too.

Zucchini Pie
Upped the recipe by using a total of 10 eggs, 1 cup cottage cheese (instead of oil), eyeballed 1 cup parmesan, 4 cups shredded zucchini, 1 whole onion diced small, a heaping cup of Bisquick. Texture was great, even kids ate it. Needs lots of pepper and a sprinkle of fresh parmesan on top. With these additions, it made one smaller pie and one deep pie. Baked at 380 for about 45mins.

French Baguettes
I am an experienced challah baker. This recipe was super easy, very little mess, and came out perfectly. I do not have a bread machine. I put the yeast and sugar in Kitchen-Aid mixer bowl, added 110 degree water, let proof for about 10 mins. Added the bread flour, kneaded for 6 mins on the dough hook, pulled off dough hook, let sit for 15 mins covered in lightly oiled bowl, kneaded in 1 tsp kosher salt, then let rise as directed from there. They look great. I will definitely make these again for sandwiches. 4yr old went nuts for them. Next time I will definitely double the recipe, the 2 baguettes were on the small side.
