Sour Cream Biscuits
I made these this morning because I had sour cream but no milk. I like them for this versatility, and they have a nice flavor, but this recipe is too inaccurate for a four-star review. I needed four times the water called for in the recipe, which probably made them chewier than they should have been - I kept adding in water and stirring, so I'm sure I overworked them. Also, I managed to get almost 12 biscuits out of them only by using a 1 1/2 in. cutter. This makes a biscuit much too small to be considered a serving - each person would easily eat at least two. I'll probably make these again, since I often have sour cream and no milk, but I'll treat the sour cream like butter (i.e., cut it in), then start with at least 1/4 c, maybe 1/3 c of water.

Homemade Vanilla Pudding
This was pretty good, but it was too sweet, and without eggs it wasn't quite rich enough, and was strangely pale. If I'm in the need for a dessert that doesn't require eggs, I'd make it again, but would definitely use whole milk or some cream, and would add a few drops of yellow food coloring. I'd also cut the sugar back to 1/4 c.

Waffles II
Best texture I've gotten out of a homemade waffle yet, but there's still something not quite right (in both taste and texture). I'll definitely make this again and will try to tweak it.
