Country Apple Dumplings
Made this last night for dessert and was very pleased with the outcome. I read through many reviews to make the best decision using other's experiences. I did lightly coat the cut apples in sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg prior to rolling in dough. I want to add that I think it's important to seal the dough without having any leaks. This may be why the dough became soggy and undercooked for others.I made half the recipe as written. My apple corer cuts the apple into 8 equal wedges, however, I cut each one in half again and used two for each triangle. This allowed the apples to cook perfectly. I also used Pillsbury brand crescent dough since I have tried substituting cheaper brands in the past when buying pie crust and there is a big difference in the final product. I made sure the butter mixture was poured over each dumpling. It was kind of thick and never creamy thin like the video but that may be because I used a mix of white and brown sugar as others suggested. The end product was delicious regardless and the top was nice and crunchy. I used Shoprite lemon/lime because you can buy it by the can and it's the same as using Sprite (make sure not to pour it directly on top of the dumplings). I cooked it for approximately 45 min. and served with vanilla ice cream. It was a keeper and I will definitely make this again.

Banana Cream Pie I
I made this recipe because I had extra bananas and a store bought graham cracker crust on hand and thought it would be nice to try this for dessert. The texture and flavor were excellent and everyone enjoyed it. My only complaint is that the bananas turn brown within a day and it doesn't look as nice (but still tastes great). Make sure to serve this same day...hopefully there won't be any leftovers.

Chicken Asparagus Roll-Ups
Easy to make but don't think it had enough flavor and moisture. I used one slice of provolone and it probably could have used 2. I followed the directions closely, only adding a thin layer of mustard sauce to the chicken prior to adding cheese and asparagus to roll up. Looked great, however, I wish they had tasted as good as they looked. Probably won't make again.
