Tater Tot Casserole
Yum! This recipe is a fantastic, quick dinner that can be modified in dozens of ways. I followed the advice of previous reviewers and swapped hot sauce for ketchup, then because I didn't have any Worcestershire sauce, I used between 1/4 and 1/2 cup of cooking sherry. I also added a few handfuls of peas, and shredded cheese over the top. I'll definitely make this again, and will continue to experiment. Great recipe!

Jewish Apple Cake I
This was absolutely delicious. The second time I made it, I made a couple of changes and amped the spice up a bit, adding about 1/2 tsp each of ground cloves and nutmeg. I also made it vegan so I could bring it to work - just substituted about 1/2 cup of baby applesauce and maybe 2/3 cup of plain soymilk for the eggs until the consistency was right. Oh, I did cut the cooking time, too, because at 65 min, it was done to perfection.

Jewish Apple Cake II
Yum, I loved this and so did my whole office when I brought in the leftovers on Monday morning. I made two small changes - one an accident and the other to accomodate eating preferences. First, I chopped the apples instead of slicing but the texture turned out fine so no problem there. I also added about 1/2 a teaspoon each of ground cloves and allspice, and 1/4 teaspoon of nutmeg. Because one of my coworkers is vegan, I used 1/2 c. of baby applesauce and 1/2-3/4 c. of soymilk instead of eggs. It turned out moist and delicious - a real hit. Thanks for the recipe!
