Ham and Cheese Picnic Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2005
It was alright, just very bland. I left out the olives and peppers because no-one in my family likes them. The dough was awfully hard to knead by hand... Very tacky and sticky. The bread was also pretty tasteless. Perhaps I added too much flour in the kneading process... I had no idea what the instructions were talking about when it came to shaping the dough, so I simply spread the filling in the middle of it and folded the ends over the filling. I'll try making this again, adding maybe another 1/2 tsp of sugar to the dough and omitting the egg. Probably will add oregano and finely chopping onion to the filling as well.

Grandma VanDoren's White Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2005
oh my goodness... this tasted so good!! Nice light crunchy crust, and a fluffy interior... and best of all, it didn't taste of yeast like so many other recipes did. =D It was VERY chewy... my family commented that its texture reminded them of 'fat kueh' (a type of asian steamed cake which is moist and sticky and gummy). So I guess next time I'll substitute a little all-purpose for some of the bread flour. All in all though, its a simple and easy recipe that makes for great results.

Farmer's Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2005
Texture-wise, its wonderful! With a crisp crust and fluffy inside. But like others mentioned, its kinda bland. I did add 2 tbsp of sugar like someone suggested, but... I also doubled the quantity of salt. Reckon it would taste pretty good

Batter White Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2005
I'm a novice baker, so I'm not sure if I did something wrong... I made this bread twice, and both times the inside was slightly soggy. Flavour-wise, it tasted sorta yeasty too, although possibly it was because I used instant active yeast instead of active dry. I did hear tell that when substituting instant for active dry, I should reduce the amt of yeast to .8 the original amount. Will try it again keeping this in mind.
