Apple Crunch Pie I

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2013
I made this for Christmas dinner and wanted to thank all my peeps on AllRecipes.com! Your reviews have NEVER steered me wrong. :) This pie was a hit with the MIL, SIL (who is super picky about her food...) and my husband (who hates apple pie, no joke). The recipe was great, I didn't modify it all, but I did jack put he temp to 400 the last 15 minutes to get those apples to fall down and the juices to get thicker and bubbly. Perfect. Won lots of compliments and preserved my cred. Thank you for posting it!!!

Creme Brulee II

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2013
I've only tried to make creme brulee at home once (pumpkin creme brulee). It wasn't a disaster, but it wasn't super good... This one, WOW! I made it last night and let it chill over night. The custard is nice and stiff, but still perfectly creamy. I baked mine at 300 degrees for 35 minutes. The tops stayed uncracked and the taste and texture are spot on. (Unlike the pumpkin which took longer to cook and was still a little loose) I also like that you don't need a ton of egg yolks to get that texture. 3 works just fine and you don't get that "eggy" taste you do with some other bain marie custards that call for more yolks. (I try to tell my self this makes this recipe a little "light" LOL!) I did heat my cream with a vanilla bean thrown in, just because I love vanilla. I didn't scrape the seeds, but did also add the extract. I don't know if this made it more vanilla-y, but I'd like to think it did. This recipe is definitely a keeper! Thanks for posting it!

Date Drop Cookies I

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2012
Thank you so much for posting this recipe! My Texan grandmother (born 1910, she was old school) made this exact cookie for me as a kid in the 70's. I never had her recipe, so when I saw yours... One bite, took me right back to her kitchen after school. Wonderful!

Microwave Oven Peanut Brittle

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2012
So super easy! Works like a dream, without the fuss of the candy thermometer. (I'm a novice in that department, so I usually klutz it up) Made two batches last night with freshly roasted Virginia peanuts and ORGANIC corn syrup. Yes Virginia, it exists! Skip the Karo HFCS! Tastes yummy!
