Pizza Crust for the Bread Machine II

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2014
So far this is my favorite pizza crust recipe at Allrecipes. Other crust recipes are good, but this has the best flavor, though I had to add a little more water than recommended (in low-humidity conditions in the middle of winter). I made it in the bread machine where it took 1.5 hours. When the machine's beeper went off, I took it out and worked the dough into a rough circle. If you know about dough, you have to let it rest a couple of times when you work it for this purpose. I used it for a white pizza - a thin coating of olive oil on the unbaked crust topped with homemade ranch dressing, grated carrot, black olives, pickled onions, and goat cheese and bleu cheese crumbles. Baked on a pizza stone at 435F for an undetermined time (I didn't time it, but did keep an eye out). Totally Yum!

Hot Milk Sponge Cake I

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2013
I made this just as written, with the walnut and coconut topping - love it! I'm not that great a cook, but it came out just like I'd want. Its indeed easy, and especially so when I use the stand mixer and a timer for the eggs and sugar. The cake has an airy texture and no overpowering sweetness. The broiled brown sugar, walnut, and coconut topping adds crunch and more flavor. I can see how this cake would be a great base for other fruit toppings. I will keep it on hand for sure!

Pasta with Fennel and Onions

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2012
Wow :) Thank you for this recipe. This is my first review here - I absolutely had to do it. Made as written, except I had only half the pine nuts called for. Oh well - this met all expectations and preferences. It's a healthy, rich, vegetable-based pasta dish and the ingredients included as written play well together without any flavor disappearing during the cook time. And thank you for helping me like fennel! I want to, and fennel cooked this way, a little caramelized with onion, makes a rich dish that would be great as a side or main dish. When I smelled it after adding the wine I was sure it would be great. I thought about adding garlic, meat, red pepper flakes, or butter and anything like that would either overpower the more delicate flavors here and/or make it much less friendly to a middle aged woman's waistline. One notable item - added salt is unnecessary because the fennel essence, lemon juice, tomato, wine, and Parmesan satisfy most all but the most salt-addicted palate.
