Guinness(R) Corned Beef
Good but we found it too sweet. if I use this recipe again, will reduce sugar to a quarter of what was suggested. Cooked in slow cooker on low for 4 hours then added veg and an hour later added the cabbage for the last hour of cooking.

Perfect Apple Pie
Very nice. I blind baked the base crust, coated with egg white and baked another 5 minutes. Added cranberries and walnuts to the filling. Delish. Base was nice and crunchy, not soggy as it sometimes gets with an apple pie. Will make again next week for Thanksgiving.

Stuffed Cabbage Rolls
Turned out great! Used ground turkey and brown rice. I didn't boil the leaves, just cored it and then placed in the microwave for 2.5 minutes (4 x) turning it around each time. The leaves came off perfectly with no mess. Also, did not use condensed tomato soup, but instead used a large jar of crushed tomatoes which I added to sauteed chopped onion with garlic and about a glass of white wine. When putting it all together I alternated the tomato sauce with left over cabbage leaves in between the cabbage rolls topping the entire thing with remaining tomato sauce. Baked at 350 for almost 2 hrs. It was great. Will freeze the rest for the next time.
