Apple Pie by Grandma Ople

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2012
I am not a baker. That said, this is the only pie I will make because it comes out flawless every time! Simple and delicious. The only changes I made were to add some cinnamon to the mixture and to use the Pillsbury pie crust that you unroll (did I mention that I'm not a baker???). The lattice was too much work and was too difficult to pour the mixture through. Instead I just pour the mixture over the apples and then add the top layer of pie crust (and add a few slits in the top as to look like I slaved all day making pie and crust). Don't pass up on this recipe. Make if often and you'll be known for your homemade apple pie too!

Salsa II

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2009
WOW - this was amazing! I halved the recipe as I don't need a gallon of salsa, cut back on the peppers a bit and only used white onions. I did boil the tomatoes to help remove the skin but otherwise put everything in the blender to puree it. Super Yummy! You can't go wrong however you adjust the main recipe so have fun and experiment!!! I served it with the 'Baked Tortilla Chips' recipe which were delicious. Again, adjusted this recipe to only use oil, lime juice and salt. Bon Appetite!

Beef Barley Lentil Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2009
Great easy recipe! My only variations were using cubed beef and adding some red wine. I marinated the beef cubes in red wine overnight and they turned out so nice and tender. I also added a few 'splashes' of red wine to the soup which gave it a real nice rich taste. Definitely recommended!!!

German Chocolate Thumbprint Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2008
I came across this recipe after looking for a German cookie recipe. Duh! I thought these cookies were really good. Yes, they come out flat and chewy if you bake per original directions but I'm not complaining. Might try adding some flour as recommended by other reviewers. They were sweet, chewy and easy to make. I don't think they are 'ugly' as others have stated. Come on what do you expect from chocolate cake mix, coconut and pecans!

Holly Christmas Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2008
Easy recipe but difficult to mold. After printing the recipe (without picture) I realized they needed to be in the shape of a wreath (duh). Since it was so difficult to mold, I ended up just dropping them on the wax paper without shaping. It looked liked holly (not a wreath) as the name states. Can't find red hot candies in my small town in Canada so I used a dab of red decorating icing. They still looked good to me but come on, are a bunch of pre-school kids going to know the difference?!?
