Quick and Easy Pizza Crust
I thought this was a really good pizza dough recipe! I usually a recipe which I like to slow rise in the fridge overnight, which requires definite planning! The Quick and Easy Pizza Crust won't replace it, but will definitely be in my rotation for spur of the moment homemade pizza. It only took about 10 minutes to mix together in my Kitchen Aid, and I let the dough rest about 20 minutes, it raised a bit as well as rested which always makes dough easier to shape and all within 30 minutes. Due to many of the reviews I used Garlic Salt in place of regular salt (as others said it was bland), I also par-baked the crust for 5 minutes at 500, making sure to pierce crust with fork to keep the shape. I then turned the oven down to 450 while I topped my pizza, returned to lowered oven and baked for 7 minutes. I then pulled it out to brush the crust with garlic butter, baked for an additional 7 minutes and then 2 minutes under the broiler. I also baked in my crisper pizza pan (the one with holes on it). Next time I will halve the dough for two pizzas as it was a tad thicker than I normally make, however it was sturdy, baked beautifully, had a nice flavor, and a wonderful texture/chew. Killed my pizza cravings and in less time than I can get a pizza delivered!

Sour Cream Apple Pie Deluxe
I made some small changes but will have to make several more changes in the future if I make this again; I added Cinnamon to the filling & upped the Cinnamon in the topping + the amount of Apples used as my mother always taught me to heap the apples so that your pie doesn't look flat after it settles (my pie was slightly above pie plate level this morning and looked beautiful, it was baked in a 10" glass pie plate). I followed the advice of chilling the pie before eating, so I refrigerated it overnight. I used tart firm baking Apples, and baked about 20 minutes longer than the direction stated, my apples were cooked through but retained their shape and had a slight bite to them which I prefer. The Sour Cream filling had a lovely texture, creamy with a slight custard consistency, however all I tasted was sour cream and would like to have some additional flavors as it muted the delicious flavor of the apples. I think I will try this again, but I will use about 8 apples (I used 10), thinly sliced, and one with a better balance of sweet/tart. I will change white sugar to Brown sugar in filling and topping + double the topping. To the filling I am going to add a bit more salt, vanilla, some nutmeg, a bit of cloves + more cinnamon (maybe a bit of Bourbon). I will also "marinate" my apples in a bit of sugar, melted butter & spices before adding to filling. The pie was not bad, and I liked the Sour cream flavor but I just need more complexity/flavor for my tastes.

Angie's Perfect Dinner Rolls
I really loved this roll recipe, and I have made a LOT of rolls/breads in the past! They came out super light and fluffy with an excellent flavor - not bland in any way and I used the exact ration of recipe ingredients. I did however change how I made them slightly - I heated up the milk and melted the butter and added the sugar and yeast and proofed it. I then added the eggs, and flour and mixed using a dough hook. Once incorporated, I kneaded it for just a few minutes and then covered and rested the dough for 20 minutes. I then kneaded the dough again, and added the salt, kneaded some more and then proceeded to the first rise. These were hands down the best rolls I have ever made and this will definitely be in my rotation - can't wait for Easter dinner because I am making these!! Enjoy, you won't regret it!
