I've done the orange blossom cakes, the no-knead bread, and the carbonara. The cakes were amazing! I will add way more seasoning to the bread next time I make it because you can't really taste it in the finished product. I used the garlic and herb rub. Also, it only took about 3 hours to rise, but it has been pretty humid here, so keep an eye on it. I wasn't a huge fan of the carbonara, I think it was a little soupy and I actually used less of the stock than called for in the recipe. My husband liked it though, because it's healthier than my regular carbonara. All in all, I'm liking these recipes and I love that they have color pictures with them now!!!
