Apple Pie by Grandma Ople
I am rating it 3-stars as to me a recipe should be successful by following the instructions. I was in a hurry and didn't have time to read the reviews first. I should have trusted my instincts instead of trusting the 5 stars. I started with 6 Granny Smith Apples and even that was too much so we ended up eating almost a whole one. The instructions indicated that I should make the caramel sauce first, which I did, and it looked perfect and I tried to keep it simmering on low, but by the time I was ready to pour it over the pie, it had become thick and globby. I saw that some was going through the pie so I hoped that it would still work. I was inclined to not put it in such a hot oven, but again I followed the instructions. I left the kitchen for a few minutes to check the reviews on the site, and when I returned I found my kitchen was full of smoke! I lost a lot of the caramel sauce as the high heat caused it to roll off of the pie and all over the oven! I immediately lowered the heat. I guess it's one way to force me to clean my oven, which I did as soon as the pie was cooked! By this time I had read enough of the reviews that when I took the pie from the oven,I pushed the top of it gently down. Overall it didn't look bad and I still took it to our Christmas dinner. Amazingly it tasted good despite my problems with it. Next time I will slice the apples first and mix most of the caramel with them first, plus add some cinnamon.

Simple Turkey Chili
I made this recipe tonight and it was delicious. After browning the turkey I added the chopped onion and about a cup of chopped celery to the turkey and cooked them until they were soft, then added a can of chicken broth instead of the water. I also added extra a can of chile beans, a can of corn and a can of mushrooms, all drained. Instead of the cayenne pepper I put in several shakes of tabasco sauce. I simmered it for a couple of hours but it still wasn't as thick as we are used to. Next time I would cut back on the water or chicken broth, unless you like it on the runny side. Good served open pita bread and with a side salad.

Slow Cooker Beef Stew IV
This was delicious. My own remark would be that when adding red wine to it, to be sure that it is very dry and not sweet. I had on hand some red dry marsala, which is a sweet wine, and it made the stew too sweet. Otherwise it would have been perfect.
