Apple Pie Bread
I followed the recipe, except that I only used half of the cloves that the recipe called for. The clove flavor was still overpowering. The crust was thick and hard, all the way around. The inside was good, but I am not a fan of scooping out the inside of a loaf of bread. I won't try this recipe again.

Blue Ribbon Sugar Cookies
Perfect! Crunchy bottoms, chewy inside. I don't like to roll and cut cookies, and now I don't have to! These are pretty and delicious. I used 2 sticks of butter (easier than cutting a softened stick in half) and 3/4 cup oil. I took the advice of several other reviewers, and cut the lemon extract to 1 teaspoon. Next time, I'll use the full amount. The lemon flavor is a little too discreet for my taste. Another thing I did that was a little different than the directions was to dip the balls of dough into sugar, then flatten with a sugared glass. No sticking, no tearing, and extra sugar!

Dried Beef Cheese Ball
It was good, and I'll make it again. However, even with the substitution of onion powder for the onion salt, it was crazy-salty. Next time, I'll soak the beef in water or milk to leach out some of the salt first. And I'll cut the onion powder in half. I prefer the taste of the fresh green onions. Good foundation recipe. :)
