Homemade Mac and Cheese
A very good, basic Mac 'n cheese recipe. This is a must make for any beginning cook who wants to learn about sauces, in this case cheese. Make sure you taste-test the sauce and adjust salt as you go. It is very forgiving, so it's hard to goof up unless you forget something or over-cook it.

Amish White Bread
The recipe is very basic and somewhat forgiving. My first attempt yielded loaves that were a tad too dense. When I tried again, instead of scooping flour with the one-cup measure, I weighed the amount instead. Scooping tends to pack the flour and usually you get 10-15% more than intended. Some baking web sights list all purpose flour as 4.5 ounces per cup. The recipe calls for 6 cups, so I weighted out 1 pound, 11 oz. The bread came out PERFECT. I've tried using shortening instead of oil, not much difference, I also like to use an egg wash of 1 egg and 2 tablespoons of milk - it gives a nice dark crust. When baking I try to confirm if its done by using a temp probe or long meat thermometer. I usually try for 195-200 deg F about mid-loaf. It seems just a tad moist but if I let it rest for an hour and cool completely it turns out fine.

Best Bread Machine Bread
As others mentioned, my bread machine instructions suggest adding yeast as the last ingredient but it does mention that it's okay not to; that proofing the yeast will not affect the outcome. I'm not as experienced as some bakers here, but I have done dozens of loaves and was constantly experimenting with the bread machine. I found that using the machine as the kneading tool to produce a glob of dough and then transfer it to bread pans works best for me. I had developed my own recipe based on this one, some others on this site and other sites and ultimately from the results of my "what-ifs" 1/4 cup warm water 3/4 cup warm milk 1/3 cup white sugar 1 package active dry yeast (2-1/4 tspn) 1 egg, slightly beaten 1/3 cup butter, softened or liquid 3 3/4 cups all-purpose flour 1-1/2 teaspoon salt Combining the warm water & milk with sugar and letting it sit for 10 min gets the yeast started really well. Subbing margarine or veggie oil for the butter works okay, but butter adds to the final flavor. I also add one egg which increases the total liquid content which is adjusted for with the increased flour. Let rise for an hour (ish) and bake at 400 F for 12-15 min -- OR let the bread machine do the baking.
