    I don't know where to start

    I think I would start out with something easy like Alton Brown's "Knead Not" bread.It is important to learn how a good bread dough is supposed to feel and this is the cheapest way to learn that. http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/knead-not-sourdough-recipe/index.html I like using a bread...

    Trying to replicate the icing inside of a twinkie.

    LOL I have actually had this recipe for a long time...it is the frosting that we always used to put on our Red Velvet Cake when I was growing up in the South. I grew up in a very rural area and the little grocery store nearest our home just carried the basic pantry items.

    Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies

    Your welcome, hope you enjoy....   Yes, the ounces are by weight.... The reason for the butter/shortening mix is....the butter is for flavor but it has a lot of water in it and if you use all butter the cookies spread out too much during baking. You need a more solid fat than just butter to...

    FINALLY!!!!!! That perfect homemade yellow cake

    I live in the South, I think our AP flour is softer here than in other places in the US. I have never used cake flour because I get good results with AP flour so I really don't know how to answer that question.   If you use buttermilk you will need to add some soda to counter the acid in the...

    FINALLY!!!!!! That perfect homemade yellow cake

    I wish you the best of luck.... 1.    I live on the Gulf Coast…I’m afraid I have no experience baking at altitudes. 2.    The butter should be at room temperature…70° to 80°. 3.    Living in the Southern US, the all-purpose flour here is very soft. If the all-purpose flour you use is hard...
