Artichoke Dip I
I hosted a party over the weekend and made 4 different appetizers all from AR. This one was by far the biggest hit. I changed nothing from the recipe and only watched it closely to make sure the grease didn't settle at the top like others had complained. I found 30 minutes on the dot to be the perfect amount of time in the oven. Very tasty dip!

Brown Sugar Meatloaf
Delicious! This is the best meatloaf recipe I've found. I put my sauce on top rather than on the bottom of the pan. I prepared it with 1/2 cup ketchup, 1 tbsp. of worcestershire sauce, and 1/4 cup brown sugar. I also reduced the milk to 1/2 cup and used only 1 egg. I used Italian bread crumbs rather than crackers. I added 2 cloves of garlic and a about a cup of chopped celery. I also added another tbsp. of worcetershire to the meat. Fantastic! 4 stars because I heavily modified this recipe from the original version.

Country Apple Dumplings
Loved it! I followed the suggestions of other reviewers and used 1/2 cup white sugar and 1/4 cup brown sugar. I also added a teaspoon of vanilla and used 12 ounces of Ginger Ale instead of Mountain Dew. I served them with vanilla ice cream on top. So delicious.
