Apple Pie by Grandma Ople

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2012
Fabulous, just as it is. Didn't change a thing, like the other reviews that I read had suggested. Will definitely make this again, and again, and again....

Topsy-Turvy Apple Pie

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2011
Made this for Rosh Hashanah dinner (Jewish New Year), for which apple desserts are tradition. It was delicious. Served it room temp, but I bet warm would have been really great. Followed the recipe, one minor change was chopping the pecans up so they would be easier to serve and eat.

Slow-Cooked Short Ribs

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2010
Have made this 3 times so far. This last time was my favorite. Changed the Red Wine Vinegar to Apple Cider Vinegar and reduced the amount to 1/4 cup. Much less acidic this way. I also use much less worchestire sauce, probably only used a tablespoon or so (it is a strong taste that I don't like too much of). This time I used BBQ sauce instead of chili sauce and really liked it (though I liked it with chili sauce too). Added some cut mushrooms about 5 hours into the cooking time. About an hour before serving I ladles off about a cup of fat, which made the gravy much better. Next time I will probably cut the onion down to about 1/2 an onion. I mixed the "gravy" together the night before, put the ribs in the crock pot in the morning with the gravy and cooked on low for about 10 hours. YUMMY! I have also mixed 1/2 short beef ribs and 1/2 boneless flanken meat which is really good too and less fat. Served over rice this time which everyone enjoyed.

Cocktail Meatballs I

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2010
I took some of the suggestions that others had previously done (I love that about this site). Used panko bread crumbs, used about 1 1/2 pounds of meat for the same amount of sauce. I only used about 1/4 teaspoon of Worcstershire as I think it can be a little strong. I pan cooked the meatballs in a little bit of canola oil rather than in so much shortening. I also added some garlic powder and onion powder to the sauce mix. After cooking them and simmering them on top of the stove I put them in my slow cooker to take to a clambake. Everyone loved them. My 4 year old at at least 10 meatballs!!! I have a very similar recipe from my mother where she puts the meatballs in the sauce raw and cooks them in the sauce. While it added an extra step to pan cook them I think it really added a nice texture to the meatballs.

Blueberry Raspberry Pie

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2010
This pie was wonderful. I did what another reviewer suggested with starting the pie at 450 then down to 400, also put it on my pizza stone to help the bottom crust cook. I used small heart shaped cookie cutters for vents which made a very nice looking pie. Very little liquid came out when it was cut. Everyone loved it.
