Twenty Minute Buns

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2013
These buns are simply great! I halved the recipe and found that it fit perfectly in my 2 lb. bread machine (on the dough cycle), which cut way down on the mess (for me). Then they just needed to be divided and given a final rise on the baking sheet. I added sesame seeds on top of the egg wash just before baking. Since I made 6 buns instead of 9, I added 2 minutes to the baking time. I suggest turning the baking sheet at about 12-13 minutes for even browning.

Best Bread Machine Bread

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2013
This bread tasted good and had nice texture, but my loaf collapsed during baking, which suggests there was either too much yeast or too much liquid (or both). The obvious remedy is to reduce the oil to 2T and the yeast to 2t... which just happens to be the same as the default basic recipe supplied by the manufacturer of my machine.

Coconut Macaroons

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2013
These came out perfect for me, but only on the second go-around after I'd worked out the bugs. First, the All Recipes version contains an obvious error: it's just 1/2 tsp of almond extract, NOT 1-1/2 tsp. . Second, this recipe absolutely *needs* 1/2 cup of flour added, to hold the cookies together. Otherwise they get runny in the oven and turn into puddles of sweetened coconut. But, once I made those two changes, I'm pretty happy with how they look and taste.
