Apple Crunch Pie I

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2013
Everyone Loves this pie & the crunchy topping. I used a regular pie crust, 5 apples & piled the apple filling higher in the middle. I patted about half of the topping down over the entire pie and put the rest on more by holding one hand along the edge of the pie to catch the crumbs that fell over the side while sprinkling the crumbs with the other hand. It cooked down and a bit of crust was pushed over the side of the pan. I didn't have granny smith apples so I used Braeburn. Any tart apple will work. I used a little more cinnamon (1/2 tsp or so) in the filling and added a bit of vanilla extract (1/2 - 1 tsp) to the filling. This pie held together really well after slicing when it was room temp. Even when I cut it early, though the piece I removed didn't look perfect, the filling stayed in place. Other apple pie recipes I've used have had filling that was too runny unless completely cooled. Tip: I couldn't find my pastry blender to cut the butter into the sugar mixture so I sliced the butter into pats (a cheese slicer with the wire & roller works great) and then just used my fingers to pinch the butter & sugar mixture until the butter was all pebble sized. Not all of the sugar mixture blends in with the butter, but the topping works nonetheless.

Cheesy Potato Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2011
I made this for a birthday brunch we had recently. The things I changed: I used a 32 oz bag of hash browns and used corn flake crumbs instead of crispy rice cereal and I used one can cream of chicken soup and one can cream of mushroom and chicken soup (because my family is not fond of mushrooms.) I also sprinkled the chopped onion over the hashbrowns instead of mixing them with the soup, to be sure they wouldn't end up crunchy. I made this the day ahead and stored it in the fridge. I sprinkled the topping on the day I made it, to make sure it wouldn't get soggy sitting overnight on top of the soup mixture. This was the first cheesy potato recipe I have made where you didn't just mix everything together (except the topping.) I thought it was still a little gooey on top when I first scooped it, but the flavor was really good. I saw several people go back for seconds. It was even better when I reheated the leftovers the next day. Next time I may try mixing everything together and see how it turns out.

Slow Cooker Cranberry Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2011
I have made this with pork chops instead of chicken and it comes out great. You could also use a pork loin roast. When I first saw the recipe, the ingredients just didn't sound like they would go together, but I was intrigued. The concoction comes out tasting like a very mild barbecue sauce. Don't be afraid to try it! It is so nice to find a recipe that uses so few ingredients and ones that I usually have on hand.

Apple Butterscotch Crumb Pie

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2010
I have been making a similar recipe for years, since finding it in a Nestle cookbook. I always buy a ready made frozen crust, so I can't comment on the crust portion of this recipe. The rest of it is fabulous. It is great for kids and people that don't like oatmeal and/or nuts in their cumble toppings. The topping can be very sweet so be sure to use tart cooking apples not sweet ones. Also be careful to watch the pie once you put the topping on because it can burn rather easily.

Cornucopia

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2010
I made this to use as a Thanksgiving centerpiece. Everyone thought it was adorable and I got a lot of compliments, but they didn't know that I had covered up a hole because the breadsticks had slid after I put it in the oven. My advice would be to check on it after a short time, while you could still fix it if holes appear where the bread sticks should overlap. Otherwise, it wasn't that hard. Would also recommend 2 people for the job.

New Orleans Chocolate Bourbon Pecan Pie

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2010
This is the BEST pie I've ever made and so easy if you use purchased crust. Everyone loves this pie and I only had left-overs once (Thanksgiving - when we had so many desserts) and this pie is even better when it's been refrigerated! The texture changes; it becomes firmer and the filling is more like caramel. I will never make another type of pecan pie again. This one is so good, so easy, and needs no tweaking.

Swiss Vegetable Medley

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2010
This is a family favorite! I use the California medley of broccoli, cauliflower and carrots. If you cannot find shredded Swiss cheese, I have substitued mozzarella. It is a milder flavor. I brought this to my best friend's house for Easter a few years ago and everyone loved it so much that I'm asked to bring it every year now!

Cream Corn Like No Other

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2009
I made this last year for Thanksgiving and it was fantastic. We had 12 people over and everyone loved it and I had to give them all the recipe. The only thing I changed was Instead of using 1 cup heavy cream and 1 cup whole milk, I substituted the same amount of Half and Half Cream for each. I don't normally buy whole milk so this seemed to simplify the recipe for me. This is the ultimate in comfort food!!! There are not enough words to describe how delicious and easy this dish is!

Melt-in-Your-Mouth Pecan Rolls

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2008
I made bunch of these rolls for a baby shower. Everyone loved them and I was asked for the recipe. One improvement I would suggest is to put the pecans in the pan, not in the mixture that goes inside the rolls. They were too hard to cut with the pecans inside them. It was much easier once I started doing it that way and no one at the party could tell that the rolls were done differently.
