The picture is misleading... DO NOT cook it in a loaf pan, or the crust will burn before it is done in the middle. Follow the recipe just as written and it is PERFECT.

Tastes great, and I was able to cut with cookie cutters, but I did have to add more water. I used a total of 2 Tbsp water...

No-Rise Pizza Dough

GREAT! And it doesn't need any complex rise time... As long as you make it in the right order. I used fast-rise yeast just because I keep it on hand for my bread machine. Mix the yeast & warm water in a bowl and let it dissolve while measuring out the rest of the ingredients. Mix everything together, knead a few times until well blended, oil the bowl, and let it rise while the oven preheats and the toppings are being gathered and prepared. I made personal pizzas... Hand shaped the crusts and 6 breadsticks, and they rose more as I was topping each one. The crust turned out perfect and not at all "cracker" like some people have said.

Buffy's Refried Beans

Made with fresh cooked beans, 2 cups to a can. Made a batch and a half. Had to use butter as had no lard... Pretty darn good but slightly, well, sweet. Added a good measure of garlic salt and 1/2 tbsp chili powder. Husband says they are the best refried beans he's ever had!

Quick Yeast Rolls

WOW! I used butter in place of the shortening, and 1 cup whole wheat flour instead of all white flour, then baked as 9 pull apart rolls in an 8"x8" pan. I must say I am truly amazed at how light & fluffy these are, as well as the delightfully crispy exterior. I will most definitely be making these again. And again. And again. LOL

Butter Dip Breadsticks

Pretty good, but definitely biscuit-y. I mixed some pureed roasted garlic with the butter I rolled them in and it was goooooood... Might make them again, might not... If so I'll definitely be using more butter & topping them with cheese.

Truck-Stop Buttermilk Pancakes

REALLY good, but even with the recipe scaled down to use only 3 eggs/buttermilk/flour it still made a ton. I was using 1/3 cup scoops and got 21 pancakes!
