Stuffed Flounder
Good, but even better with the addition of some shredded Italian Blend cheese in the stuffing mixture. I would give 5 stars, DH gives it 3 stars (but I like seafood much better than he does).

Quick and Easy Pizza Crust
Very good crust, although a tad sticky each time I've made it. I just dump the ingredients in my bread machine, and let it do all the mixing/kneading for me, then turn the machine off before the rise part of the cycle (since the recipe only calls for 5 minutes of rest time). I always need to add a bit more flour in the kneading cycle, but no big deal. We love this for our grilled pizza on the BBQ - leave it on a lightly greased pizza pan, place on grill over indirect medium coals, cover, and leave alone for a few minutes. When it starts to bubble on top and firm up, I flip it off the pan directly onto the grill. When the first side is golden, I pull it off again, put sauce and toppings on the browned side, then slide it back onto the grill to melt the cheese and brown the other side. Absolutely to die for!! I've never seen my kids eat so much pizza, and that says a lot! LOL!

Donut Muffins
While mixing the batter, I thought the amount of sugar called for was too high, but prepared the recipe as directed anyway (can't honestly rate the recipe if I tweak it the first time I make it). My kids liked them, but my kids also believe sugar is a food group! LOL! Anyway, DH and I both thought they were way too sweet, even when we skipped the cinnamon sugar topping. I'll stick with my original recipe for doughnut muffins; 1/3 C shortening, 1/2 C sugar, 1 egg, 1.5 C flour, 1.5 tsp baking powder, .5 tsp salt, .25 tsp nutmeg, 3/4 C milk. The ratio of sugar to flour is lower, and the addition of salt cuts that over-sweet problem. I also use POWDERED sugar and cinnamon for the topping, because we don't like that "gritty" feeling of chewing pure white sugar.
