Apple Pie by Grandma Ople

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2009
This was my first time attempting to bake a pie from scratch. I made this for Thanksgiving and it was a hit! I did listen to some of the tips in the other reviews and made some adjustments. Ruth's Grandma's Pie Crust recipe went perfect with this pie. For the crust I used butter-flavored shortening and added a tablespoon of water to make the dough more pliable. I added a tablespoon of vanilla and a teaspoon of cinnamon to this recipe and used red delicious apples instead of granny smith. Wonderful! I think next time I will try replacing the cinnomon with caramel to see how that turns out.

Miracle Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2010
I made this tonight and it was absolutely delicious. I adjusted the recipe a bit according to my tastes. I'm not a big fan of ginger root, so I omitted that ingredient. I used fresh bok choy instead of spinach, added in extra water chestnuts, extra baby corn, extra mushrooms, extra bamboo shoots, and an extra 32 oz package of chicken broth. I also added in a half package of dry lentils which I pre-cooked before putting them in the soup. The lentils gave it an extra boost of iron and made the soup more filling. Absolutely amazing!!
