Apple Crisp II
Great! I usually use the joy of cooking's recipe for apple crisp, and for some reason it never occurred to me to search the web for a good recipe... Well, I'm happy to report that this one is much better! I pretty much followed the recipe exactly, maybe a little less sugar on the apples. When it comes to the "extra water" debate, I think that it really depends on the apples you are using. If they are juicy, they will bubble up and be delicious, but if they are dry, it is not going to work. I usually peek into the oven about halfway through the cooking time, and if the apples look like there's not enough juice, then adding a little water works magic. Some people I know use orange juice. It really doesn't matter, but you want a little sauce to make the dish really work. So for me, I don't add any water, and then check on it halfway through and decide if it could use some. I am so glad I have a new apple crisp recipe!

Buttercream Icing
The best way to stop eating too much desert is to start making them! I didn't know that icing was basically sugar and butter! I guess that explains why it's so delicious... I made it with 3 cups sugar, 1/2 c butter, and a little extra milk. I couldn't possibly use shortening. It was divine.

Banana Banana Bread
Pretty good. Mine got done in less than an hour.. I'm surprised nobody else said that, because my oven is not particularly hot. The secret to its goodness, I think is not necessarily a lot of bananas, it's the stick of butter. Like Julia Childs said, "the difference between a good dish and a great dish is a stick of butter.." (or something like that). Right again, Julia..
