Grandma's Lemon Meringue Pie
I haven't tried this yet as it's in my fridge setting up (though I did taste the filling and meringue before putting it together and both tasted great!!!!! I have a couple of issues already though.......I added nearly a cup of lemon juice fresh squeezed with some lemon zest, but had to add extra juice as it didn't quite have the zing I was looking for........ Secondly, though it's thick, it's still quite wobbly, so not sure if it's going to set up or be a little too thin yet, time will tell......Lastly, the Meringue........tastes great!!!!!!! However, I spread on, and sealed it (on a 9" pie it's a fairly thin layer...if IU would have known I would've doubled as I love my meringue..)however after I put it in the fridge, it started cracking around one edge, and is pulling back a bit from the edge of the pie.........Any thoughts???

Applesauce Cake I
I am rating this based on the modifications I made..... I did not use raisins or walnuts, as I had neither in the house....... I used HOMEMADE apple sauce, used 1/2 white and 1/2 brown sugar for a different depth of flavor, added one egg, and added 1 chopped GALA apple into the batter........ I made these in muffin form, so I greased the pan, and covered the sides and bottom of each cup with cinnamon sugar before putting the batter in each cup..... After they finished (about 20-25 minutes), I poked holes in each one while still hot, and drizzled caramel sauce over each one, allowing the sauce to drain into the muffins......Result??? ABSOLUTELY AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Easy Mexican Casserole
I'm typing this review as mine is in the oven baking.....I DID make changes and modifications, as I find this to be a very basic (but great) base recipe. I added Cheesy taco seasoning to the beef mixture, as well as some fresh mild chilies, and then finished simmering with Pace Chunky salsa, a can of refried beans and about half a can of corn..... Instead of the chips (not much for soggy chips, and wanted this more of a real casserole or "pie" type meal), I layered 2 large tortilla shells on the bottom of my pan....Put half of the beef mixture on the tortillas spread out....then placed black olives (I used a big can and sliced them, as we LOVE our olives in this house), Rotelle tomatoes, green onions, and mexican blend cheese. I then topped with the last of the beef mixture, and "closed it up", using 2 more large tortilla wraps on top and pinching it down all around the pan (trimmed a little excess off the sides).... It's got about another 15 minutes to go, at about 5 mninutes left I'll add the last part of the Rotelle tomatoes andgreen onions, and cover with cheese on top. Adding the sour cream after it's out of the oven as I don't like the taste of it baked into things like that. Complimenting it with a mexican apple pie....cinnamon covered baked tortilla shells, covered in more cinnamon, apples (sauteed in butter and apple pie spice), a homemade caramel sauce, and topped with shredded cheddar cheese and whipped cream. Awesome meal!!!
