Grandma Ople's Apple Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2013
This has got to be the best pie I have ever made. I used all granny smith apples and I also mixed most of the sugar mixture into the apples and added cinnamon. then poured the rest on top of the pie along with cinnamon and sugar. The pie was picture perfect and so yummy. will be my new go to pie..

Best Buttercream Frosting

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2012
this frosting was good but not the mind blowing, life changing frosting everyone was talking about. It was not very sweet, I like that, and it had an amazing light and fluffy texture that was just yummy, but maybe it was in my vanilla extract that the frosting fell flat for me. It just did not pack that punch that would make this a go to frosting. I will make this again and use different flavor profiles to maybe kick it up some. Tip's: the first time making the flour and milk part the heat was on medium high. that is way to high. When I added the flour it thicken up right away, so there was no time to get that raw taste out of the mix. also cooling it all the way will make the flour milk lumpy when mixing. if this happens start over. it will not work to give you that nice fluffy smooth texture we are all looking for. how I combated this problem. one I warmed the milk on the lowest setting of my stove. then added the flour all at once. mixing the whole time. it wil thicken very fast even on low take off the burner. mix mix mix. then back to the low heat to cook out that nasty flour taste. note if it form's this ball it will be hard to get it smooth. mine was a smooth white roux kind of gummy in texture. cooled for about 15 min. beating it every five min so a skin could not form. Sorry for the long post and I hope this all helps.

Unbelievable Rolls

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2011
So I made these rolls today for dinner. Took about 2.5 to3 hour's from start to finish. I do a lot of baking. Im a stay at home mom so baking rolls 2-3 times a week sometimes more is nothing for me I I feel I know my way around. I made two changes. One by mistake and one I meant to. I forgot the instructions call for the butter to be added after you let the milk and yeast sit in the flour for 20-30 min.'s I added mine in the milk along with 2 table spoon's of shortening. Other then that I followed the directions as written. Brushing shortingig on top before puttin in oven. I have found my carbohydrate nervana! Everyone loves then even the dog who sat begging at my feet for a roll. Thanks so much. :)

Potato Rolls

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2011
Made these tonight, I would have liked to follow the recipe as it was written but I only had one egg. and no shortening. so I subbed the shortening for veg. oil and only used one egg. using half bread flour and half self rising flour becase that was all i had in the house. and they still came out yummy light fluffy on the inside and with a slight crisp on the out side.If mine came out this good with so many subs I cant imagine the carb bliss I would be in if I had of followed to the letter. yum. thanks will make over and over.

Pillow-Soft Dinner Rolls

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2011
Well I followed this recipe to the letter.I give the texture a 5 the easy in preparation a 5 and the taste a 3 Mine came out very fluffy with a crusty outside, just as I like it. I had no problems with the preparation.I followed the step's as directed. adding two cup's of flour and beating till smooth. then mixed in as much as I could, them turning the ball out on to the counter and kneading in the remaining cups of flour.no extra flour was needed. I will be making this again, I would say the recipe need's a little more salt.but they are absolutely wonderful with my homemade honey butter. and would be even better with fresh herb's mixed into the recipe.

David's Yellow Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2011
I have not been making cake's from scratch for that long, maybe a few month's. With that said, this cake was good. really good in fact. It had that butter-y taste that I was looking for and complimented my homemade chocolate butter cream nicely. the texture was light and airy like I like it. I did have to change one thing. I only had one stick of real butter on hand and had to compensate with a stick of margarine. I think if I had used all butter the cake would have come out even better then it did. that's why Im giving it 5 star's. It just would not be right to give it any less. this is now my go to cake.
