Same here. If it is the only kind on the shelf, I make sure I proof it before using it. Even then it takes a long time to proof. Even when I feed it sugar. They can keep quick rise yeast.

Funny how ATK uses it all the time. ATK is not my bible for cooking. Some great recipes, but their ingredient lists often leave somthing to be desired.

Last night I had an English muffin with poached eggs. It turned into a lesson. Next time, half a muffin, one egg. Whole muffin and two eggs are too much at one sitting for me.

Oh, too bad I'm not your neighbor. We could have cinnamon buns together!
