Amish White Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2012
I love this bread! I'm not sure if I'm doing something wrong, but I cannot get that white fluffy store bought bread, but on the other hand, I really like this MUCH better. it's slightly sweet with a light chewiness, and fresh out of the oven I could eat a whole loaf! I've made this a few times, first following the recipe exactly and came out with a sweet-bread consistency, pretty dense and very buttery and sweet. I cut down the sugar to 1/2c for my second batch and had basically the same results, only having a slightly fluffier bread. Again I cut down the sugar (desperate for that "sandwich loaf") to 1/4c, and finally had a great loaf of bread. My husband and I ate an entire loaf within an hour out of the oven! It was still slightly sweet but definitely the best bread EVER. KITCHENAID USERS: proof your yeast in the mixing bowl, then add your salt & oil. on speed 2, begin to add your flour 1/2-1c at a time. once you add about half and begin to get a ball on your hook, decrease to stir each time you add flour and only add 1/2c at a time (my mixer tossed flour everywhere at 1c on speed 2!) Once your happy with the consistency (i found this closer to 5c instead of the recipes 6c, mix on speed 2 for another 3-4 minutes, remove from your hook and HAND KNEAD for another minute or two. It gives the bread that hand kneaded love and helped me shape it out for a nice pretty loaf in the pan. Hands down, this is a great loaf of bread! Definitely a keeper!

Aunt Teen's Creamy Chocolate Fudge

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2012
This fudge is AMAZING. It was easy to make, tastes delicious and doesn't take long at all! I did, however, make a few changes. I used all milk chocolate since I'm not a fan of semi-sweet or that "dark chocolate" taste. I also boiled for 7 minutes and started my timer when I got my first few rolling bubbles on the side on medium-low (more on the low side, figuring low & slow is best). The only reason I knocked off a star was because it definitely doesnt taste like traditional fudge, but more of, well, if I had grabbed a handful of milk chips right out of the bag! (which isnt bad either). This definitely did the trick for my midnight chocolate fix, so bravo for that! **i did microwave the mallow cream just a bit (12-15sec) to make it easier to get out of that jar. I also might add either white chocolate or peanut butter next time so I dont feel like I'm just eating chocolate chips. DEFINITELY A KEEPER!
