Steakhouse Wheat Bread for the Bread Machine

Reviewed: May 12, 2013
I made this bread yesterday and followed the ingredients as close as possible. The only thing I changed was replacing my water with regular drip coffee as another user suggested because I didn't have instant. It's hard to say if this changed anything, but instant coffee just isn't something we keep on hand. It turned out great and I'm honestly perplexed by all the reviews that describe the dough as gloppy or too wet because my dough was not like that at all. I'm glad I didn't cut back on the liquid - it would have been too dry! Anyway, it turned out great! I had a slice with dinner and my husband polished off the entire loaf in the course of the evening so I will be making 2 loaves of this bread today. :-)

Homemade Mac and Cheese

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2013
I do a lot of cooking, but try to avoid making really carb-heavy dishes. I rarely eat mac and cheese, but found myself with a strong craving the other night and decided to give this a shot. This was my first time making mac & cheese from scratch and I am willing to admit that maybe I'm missing something here, but I honestly thought the sauce was too runny, it had a gritty texture I didn't care for (maybe from the flour or dried parm?), and after cooking it in the oven for a half hour my noodles were a lot mushier than I like. The flavor was Delicious however, especially with just a pinch of garlic salt added to my bowl. I compared this recipe to many others online and they all seem to be similar so maybe this is just what homemade mac & cheese is supposed to be like? But I was really hoping for a drier, smoother sauce. I might try it again sometime, reduce the liquids, and double the amount of noodles. there are also a number of suggestions other people have mentioned that might give me more of what I was hoping for.
