Chef John's Caramel Apple Pie
I have tried several apple pie recipes (including Grandma Ople's) only to be disappointed...until this one! I followed the advice of some other reviewers and did a thing or two from my own experience. First, Cut the apples into 8 pieces each. I use 5 large or 6 small/medium Pink Lady or Cripps Pink apples. Second, make sure the sugar mixture is cooled off. I prepare the mixture first, and cut up my apples while it is cooling. Then simply toss the apples in the mixture before pouring them into the crust. Once the lattice top is on, brush the crust with 1 beaten egg, and then evenly sprinkle 1 tablespoon white sugar over the crust. This is finally a go to apple pie recipe for me!

Chef John's Sausage & Shrimp Jambalaya
Missing Instructions About Boiling! This recipe is awesome. It has just the right amount of spice, and has become a new favorite around my house. The instructions left out that you need to bring your rice mixture to a boil before covering it, turning on low, and simmering for 45 minutes. If you do not bring it to a boil first, this will take more like 2 hours to cook. Even with bringing it to a boil, it takes more like an hour, just like it does when you make brown rice by itself. Other than that, this is a great recipe!

Chicken Florentine Casserole
Awesome! I would use two bags of spinach for a total of 12 oz. and then 8oz. of mushrooms. Otherwise there isn't much substance besides chicken. Definitely follow the reviewer's advice to sautee raw spinach with the mushrooms, and put the chicken in the casserole uncooked.
