Apple Pie by Grandma Ople
This pie was extremely easy to prepare and was absolutely delicious. I chose to try this recipe because I didn't want a pie that seemed to be just apples, juice and crust. I wanted the pie to have a thickened filling; the addition of flour seemed promising and it delivered. I've never been a pie-lover but I found myself in need of an apple pie during last year's holiday season. I'm ashamed to say that I ate one of these entirely by myself in a 24 hour time period and needed to make another for the person I had intended to make it for. I used Pilsbury ready-made pie crust, Granny Smith apples, and added 1 tsp each of cinnamon and vanilla. As somebody recommended, I tossed the chopped apples in the syrup mixture before I added them to the crust and saved a little to brush on the crust. Amazing.

Scrambled Eggs Done Right
I thought these eggs were very good, as did my family. I incorrectly assumed I had mayo on hand but ended up using light ranch dressing instead, which I whisked together with the water before adding the eggs. I was very skeptical about not adding salt and pepper until they were finished but I ended up not adding any at all. The eggs seemed to have lost that 'eggy' flavor that I don't much care for (restaurant scrambled eggs never have that taste),they were light and very fluffy, and they were flavorful just by themselves. Weird! My husband was shocked about the ranch dressing but we'll add it every time from now on.

Chocolate Cornstarch Pudding
This pudding is absolutely perfect, to say the least! It has a very raw chocolate taste to it, akin to the difference between store bought hot chocolate and homemade hot cocoa, this being the latter. I only had non-fat milk on hand, other than that I followed the recipe exactly. I was worried about over/under cooking it but I followed the advice of waiting till it coats a metal spoon, then cooked it a little more because it still looked runny. It does thicken upon standing, though. When I popped it in the microwave the next morning, it was as if I had just made it: still perfect. The only difference being that directly from the fridge it looked a little grainy, probably because of the non-fat milk. I have an aversion to undercooked eggs, so much so that it doesn’t matter how cooked they are, the outcome has to be absolutely solid for me to eat it; the cornstarch is genius. I won’t ever buy pudding again.
