Mom's Apple Fritters
The only thing I did differently with this recipe is add some cinnamon to the batter. My hubby and 7 year old loved these but I was disappointed. They weren't sweet enough for my taste.

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup
I fiddled with this too much to give it an honest 5 stars. It's a really good base and a really good recipe as written. I just knew it wouldn't be exactly to my family's liking. Firstly I omitted the celery because we have 2 non-celery eaters in my family. Instead I used celery salt. Secondly I upped the ham to almost a full cup. I also omitted the bouillon, thinking with all the ham I didn't need the extra meat flavor or salt. And finally I added about 3/4 cup shredded cheddar to the milk mixture, stirring to let it melt. All in all it was very good. The only thing that remotely bothered me is I thought it was a touch thin. Next time I'll cut back on the water, add more flour or mash up some of the potatoes to thicken it up a bit more. ETA: For those that said their soup tasted pasty or floury, when making a roux or gravy with flour, you MUST let it boil for a few minutes to fully cook the flour. If you do not, you will end up with a pasty or floury flavor.

Apple Ugly Cake
Good flavor, but much too oily. I followed the recipe exactly. Will make again, but next time will cut the oil at least by half.
