Quick Yeast Rolls
Followed the recipe perfectly and got very nice rolls, although a bit bland. Just tasted the sugar slightly. Maybe needed more salt? Or maybe I am desiring the flavor of whole wheat? I made these once before using nothing but whole wheat; I think the taste was good but the texture suffered. Next time I'll probably try a split of both flours. Well, as for this recipe-accurate batch I'm sure a little butter on top will fix them up. I wouldn't bother starting to preheat your oven until you're done with step 2. Too many yeast recipes tell you to preheat your oven when it'll be 1.5-2 hours minimum before you use it. And yeah, recipes should spell out the fundamentals of yeast for us newbies :( The first yeast recipe I used was a waffle recipe that had me adding the yeast to scalding hot milk!

Chantal's New York Cheesecake
This is the only cheesecake recipe I've used, and I've made it twice as of last night. It's very good, but there is one issue: the middle of the filling doesn't cook properly. It cooks enough to hold its structure, but it has a very buttery/creamy texture rather than the classic tacky texture the outer filling correctly achieves. I tried cooking it 15 minutes longer or so this time, but it didn't help. Aside from that, I did follow the recipe exactly both times. I'm not pro enough to know why this happens, but I've read that a cheesecake shouldn't crack unless the internal temperature gets too high. However, this pie cracked both times for me AND the middle is undercooked. So maybe there is a fundamental problem with the ingredients here, such as too much liquid? Even so, it's a very delicious cake. I don't think anyone would dislike the creamy texture if it comes out this way for you! If your cake does crack, I suggest topping it with a 1 c. sour cream + 1/3 c. powdered sugar topping. Tastes good and hides the crack!
