Old Fashioned Strawberry Pie

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2009
I made a traditional pie crust and followed the recipe mostly as written. The only differences was that I added 2 tablespoons of cornstarch to the filling mixture and cut the sugar mixture down a 1/3 cup because the strawberries were so sweet. Also, I used 1/2 cup white sugar and 1/2 cup brown sugar for a little more complex flavor. I was a little concerned that it would be too soupy as some of the other reviewers stated. I turned out perfect!! Also, remember with a fruit pie, if you let it sit overnight or at least 4 to 6 hours after baking, the filling will firm up as it cools. I really can't say anything bad about this pie. I think it is lack of experience baking fruit pies that others have had a lot of difficulty with the pie filling. Also if you are looking for something with a more tart/sweet flavor try a strawberry rhubarb pie. Most classic recipe strawberry pies are on the sweet side. Again it was great!!

Banana Waffles

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2009
I had a hard time with the waffles not sticking to the waffle iron, even when I liberally sprayed with cooking spray. The batter was okay and I'm sure that it worked well for others, but it just wasn't what I wanted.

Grandma Johnson's Scones

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2009
I loved this recipe! I substituted the 1 cup raisins for 1/2 cup dried cranberries and 1/2 cup dried apples. I added 1 tsp nutmeg, 1 tablespoon of vanilla and 2 tablespoons of caramel sprinkles. It was absolutely heavenly!! It was almost a cross between a biscuit and a cookie! My mother who adamantly proclaimed that she "does not like scones", loved it as well! I can't wait to try a couple of variations with a more savory twist!
