Chinese Cocktail Buns
These are really very good. Buns were soft & filling was the right consistency (it is supposed to be crumbly). I really wanted to give it 5 stars, but like another reviewer said, it seems to lack salt. Although, looking at a couple other recipes for cocktail buns, none of them had salt in the filling. Perhaps I needed to use salted butter and not unsalted? I didn't change a single thing from the instructions. I'll try to add a little salt next time and hopefully I can come back and give it 5 stars! I think that if I've never had "professional" versions of these, I might've given this 5 stars. But the filling just wasn't quite right flavorwise. Also, this is the first time I've tried to open & grate a fresh coconut. Holy cow, that part alone took me an extra hour and I nearly worked my arm off! Next time I will buy some pre packaged coconut flakes instead.

Ninety Minute Cinnamon Rolls
Okay, so I MUST have done something wrong but I don't know what. I almost never follow recipes exactly, but because I'm new to baking, I made sure I followed everything to the letter. Everything was going along fine, until I went to knead the dough. It was SO SO SO sticky, it stuck to the floured surface, my hands, everything. I had to add at least another 1/4 cup of flour to get it to work. When I finally rolled it out to 12" x 9", I found that the amount of filling was WAY too much, like by 1/3 to 1/2 too much. When I rolled up my dough, a ton of it gushed out and made a huge mess. This took me about 2 hours altogether, and the texture was not "gooey" at all but more like a cross between bread and a proper cinnamon roll. I'd really like to try this again, because almost 1000 positive reviews can't be wrong. I wish I knew what happened!

Quick Cabbage and Noodles
I am really slow in the kitchen and this did not take long at all. I've made this several times already, it's so easy and comforting. I like to add a little cinnamon to it and also some paprika.
