Creamy Frosting
I had already made the milk/flour mixture with the stated amounts, when I decided to only use 1/2 cup butter and 1/2 cup sugar, because I only had a sheet cake to frost; but came out very good and fluffy and good tasting. Sweet enough for my taste.

Amish White Bread
Very nice loafs of white bread. Used only 1/4 cup sugar, and added 5 tbsp. gluten. Used only 5 cups of the flour to mix, and used some of the 6th cup in the kneading process. I think all 6 cups of flour would have been too much for the amount of water. The dough was wonderfully soft and a pleasure to work with, and the end product turned out just as soft and fluffy. Don't forget to put a shallow pan of water on the bottom rack of the oven while baking. My 3 guys pretty much devoured one of the loaves with dinner.

Grandma's Sloppy Joes
WOW, at first I was not sure if I should add it to my recipe box, but one taste convinced me. The cloves definitely set it off; I did not measure exactly, just to taste and also added paprika, and chopped jalapeƱos, since we like it hot :)
