Quick Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2013
I was seriously craving lemon poppyseen muffins and had found lots of recipes with very poor ratings and reviews prior to this one, which I settled on - and I'm happy I did. I didn't have any fresh lemons, so I used bottled lemon juice and the zest of an orange I had lying around - soaked in a splash more lemon juice - and I substituted for buttermilk (1/2 cup milk and 1/2 tablespoon lemon juice) as I usually do. I also added just a touch more flour to balance out the batter - which is far more liquid than many muffin batters, but baked up wonderfully. I wound up with 12 muffins, not 10 - which is no problem, of course - and they are delicious! These are also some of very few muffins I've made from scratch that actually rose and looked poofy, like they are supposed to do. I will definitely be making this again. (Probably with actual fresh lemons next time!)

Valentino's Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2012
I love this pizza crust! Although, and this could be considered a con - it is so easy to put together I probably have it too often, now! I don't have a pizza stone, so I split the dough in two and use a half-sheet baking sheet for one of them, which is perfectly sized. I usually make it just for me, and put half in a covered bowl in the fridge, where it keeps fine for a couple of days. I recommend adding some oregano, basil, and/or thyme to the dough itself, rather than sprinkling on top. I haven't tried a dessert variation yet, but it's been good with every savory topping I've tried so far. Highly recommended. Bit of advice, though - don't make it too thick. I like 'deep dish' crusts, but this can be a bit too dense and chewy even for me if I don't shape it thinly. Trust me, even rolled thin, it is very good, and quite sturdy.
