I thought this fudge was amazing. I used 1 cup semisweet and 2 cups milk choc. chips. I microwaved for 1 minute then stirred, 1 minute then stirred and then 30 seconds and it came out great! Lined the pan with foil and sprayed with cooking spray. Let it cool for a few hours and then flipped it out and cut it up. DELISH!!

Grandma Ople's Apple Pie
This was my first attempt at apple pie and it was spot on delish!!!!! I used Honeycrisp apples, I added cinnamon and some nutmeg to the apples as others mentioned. This pie was probably the best I have ever had and to think I made it is just CRAZY :-) Very simple to make, thanks grandma ople!

Pastitsio II
I gave it 4 because I changed it up a bit. It was sooo delish. Here is what I changed. For the pasta: I did not add the olive oil and added a little cinnamon. For the beef: I used a combo of pork, veal and beef. I used less union added some cinnamon and used a large can of crushed tomatoes (with garlic, basil) instead of the broth. I used white wine instead of white and omitted the parsley and used Italian seasoning. I put 2 Bay leaves in and let is simmer for about an hour. For the Bechamel sauce: I added a dash or so of cinnamon. To assemble I put the pasta on the bottom, then some Bechamel sauce; then the meat sauce, then the other half of pasta and then the Bechamel sauce. It was sooooo good! I used a deep dish so it was nice and thick.
