Slow Cooker Lentil and Ham Soup
I used the entire ham bone and simmered everything on the stove. I'm not sure the broth would have had an intense enough flavour for me with just the ham pieces, but that is a personal preference, and I also used diced tomatoes. That doesn't change the flavour, it just adds a different texture. Another personal preference is that I prefer my soups to have a little body. I don't like a liquid broth. So I added 1/2 cup of instant potato flakes at the end and simmered for another 30 minutes to give it that little "extra" stick to your ribs texture. :) Thank you for sharing.

Banana Cake II
The only reason I'm rating this cake a 4 is I didn't find the banana flavour very intense. I used just over 1 cup (3 bananas) but I think I will add a 4th banana next time. The texture of the cake was exactly what I was looking for though. A fluffy cake! not a dense solid banana bread that most of the cakes I have tried on here have turned out to be. For some extra flavour I also took 1 cup of batter and added 5 tbsp cinnamon to it. I then spread that on top of the cake in the pan and used a knife to swirl it through. Not necessary by any means, but just something we like the taste of. Yes ladies and gentleman, this really is a Banana CAKE! Thank you so much for sharing the recipe.

The Best Caramel Apples
not sure what happened, but mine burnt to the pot before it even reached 215 degrees! Had it on 4 on the stove, so slightly less than medium heat. I realized it was burning at the bottom right away so I didn't stir it further, and poured it in it's soft state into a pie plate and sprinkled with chopped nuts and grated chocolate so I can use it as an apple dip instead. A little disappointing since all the apples are ready and have the Popsicle sticks in them. :( Guess I will make candy apples for the kids with those.
