In response to the question about yeast, I've been buying it at Sams (and 
Pace before they were bought by Sams) for years.  I use roughly a 
Tablespoon to replace 1 pkg of dry yeast...I also keep it in the 
refrigerator after putting it into smaller containers.  I've used it up 
to a year later....however, a caveat.  Because I keep it so long, and 
just on general principles, I proof the yeast before baking by dissolving 
in small amount of water with a little of the sugar/honey, etc from the 
Food service just means large volume for restaurants, etc. You should be 
able to use your regular recipes.
