Apple Pie by Grandma Ople

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2014
Excellent and utterly foolproof. I over-simmered the syrup and it got a bit chunky but still came out perfect. I added 1 tsp cinnamon in the syrup.

Sour Cream Cut-Out Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2010
Loved these! Wonderful to have a cutout recipe for kids that does not require chilling. Disagreeing with other reviewers that these are bland without icing. Maybe it is the quality of ingredients that makes the difference. I used organic flour, sugar, eggs and sour cream and they were outstanding.

Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2007
I do have to say these were the best chocolate chip cookies. I cooked them for 15 minutes, which was too long - will go with 10 next time.

Restaurant Style Lasagna

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2007
I used Hunt's tomato sauce and a high quality mozzarella instead of a generic brand and it worked great. I also doubled the meat and used bison instead of beef and added a little more tomato sauce. I find this necessary since meat is not sold in halves of pounds and one large can of tomato sauce is more economical than three small ones. It's more of a homestyle lasagna than a fancy-restaraunt style but it works very well. Will be my new default lasagna recipe.

Chewy Granola Bars

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2007
I've made this recipe a number of times, both as bars and as granola. The quality of honey and butter that you use is important. It's also important to use a slower-cooking variety of oats, like old fashioned or rolled oats - if you use quick oats there just isn't enough honey to make things stick together. Also as noted in other reviews, if you want your bars to stick together, you don't want to 'lightly press' it into the pan, press as hard as you can!! You're always going to get a certain amount of crumbling and you just have to be OK with it. The good thing about this recipe is that it's quick, easy, and tasty so just go with the shortcomings. As a granola recipe it works great. It's pretty sweet so I leave out the sugar. I do raisins, sunflower seeds, and minced almonds and walnuts instead of chocolate chips. Maple syrup subs in great if you're out of honey, and seems to stick together better - might work well for bars, maybe someone will try this. It does make the recipe a bit more expensive though.
