I found a few packages of dry yeast in the cabinet. Any suggestions on what I could make? I have made bagels and they were good. I would like something sweeter though. Thanks.

I absolutely love my bread machine! I use it constantly so I am always going through a lot of yeast I have lots of recipes from my Gramma that use yeast and I've converted them so I can use them in the bread machine I'll find a few for you if you'd like meantime check out "just a pinch kitchen" it's a great recipe site---you'll love it!

I will need to add a bread machine to my wish list. For now I have to make stuff by hand. I will check out that recipe site though. Thanks!

I've worn out quite a few bread-machines, but I buy my machines at Garage Sales. Its so funny because women love the idea of machine baking, but it seems like many girls buy a $60.00 machine, use it a few times and are disappointed because the bread doesn't turn out, so they put it away, to sell later for about $10.00

With bread yeast you can make waffles : they look thick but they are light and crunchy and yeast makes really a difference. You can also make crepes : I start by dropping the yeast in a warm milk bowl with two tea spoons of sugar. It is ready to mix with your flour when there is a foam on the top of the milk.

I love home-made bread, and have been baking bread with a bread-machine for many years. Yeast is necessary in the recipe for the bread to rise. I keep the yeast tightly covered in a bottle in the refrigerator. Yeast has a fairly short shelf life, and unless its kept cool, it soon deteriorates. It takes 2 Tsp. yeast to rise a single loaf of bread.

I don't have a bread machine. Is it hard to make bread without one?

Hmmm... something sweet how about some cinnabuns or some brioche you could also try some milk breads or an amish bread. Ohhh you should test if those yeast package are still going to work, by letting it stand in a warm water.
