Chicken Marsala Florentine
This was alright, but the sun dried tomatoes overpowered the dish and adding the butter before deglazing the pan left a greasy rather than blended sauce. I was hoping for a rich mushroom flavor with bright pops of tomato acid. If I try it again (which I may not), I think I'd cut the tomatoes down to 1/4c or cut them out entirely. Or, I'd go the opposite route and push the tuscan side by adding olives and capers. I also (skeptically) followed the recipe's call for melting the butter before deglazing with wine and I think that was a mistake. A more traditional approach of whisking the butter bit by bit after the marsala has reduced right before removing from the heat should give a more emulsified (less butter grease) end product. As others have said, addd garlic is a must. I've also gotten in the habit of brining my chicken before cooking which keeps it juicy (hubby loved the chicken, sans sauce). With a few tweaks this might be a keeper, but as it is I will not make it again.

Apple Pie by Grandma Ople
My Dad knows his apples.. he has an orchard he likes them so much. I used this hoping I would be able to make a pie worthy of the Thanksgiving table. Not only did it pass, this recipe BLEW HIS SOCKS OFF. He & our family (even my dessert-hating husband) said it was the best pie they've ever had. I shared the love & sent the recipe to our guests giving the legendary Grandma Ople full credit for her creation. My only bitty comment is that it bubbles over and will cause a smoke storm in your oven if you don't put a cookie sheet or oven liner beneath. Thanks Grandma O. You have made my Dad a happy happy guy, which means a lot to his doting daughters.

Slow-Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup
Very nice base. I added chipotle pepper (dried), a half cup of black beans (left over from another recipe) & garnished with cilantro, avocado, and a lime wedge. I will definitely make this again.
