Here's an example of what I've been up to recently:
Pretzel dough! I made my first batch with white flour, but used the freshly ground stuff for my second batch.
So, when the recipe says to roll them until they are less than 1/2 inch thick…it means it.
If you don't, this is what happens after they rise. My second batch came out better. I made them thinner, so they still looked like pretzels after they had risen :-) I took some Velveeta cheese and melted it and thinned it down with milk to make some cheese dip. They were amazing!
I learned after my last batch that butter will spoil, so I shaped them to freeze them this time, to avoid that happening again!
Potato bread. I made it with real potatoes! It's become our new favorite :-)
