Rhubarb Crunch
Solid recipe, made a few changes. Per other reviews: doubled the fruit (I used 4 c. rhubarb, 2 c. strawberries); added heaping 1/4 tsp. allspice and 1 tbsp. salt to topping. I actually used the topping recipe from Apple Crisp II, so mine was 1:1:1:1/2 oats:flour:dark brown sugar, and I used 1.5 c. each (and 3/4 c. butter). I think in future I'll only use 1 c. each (and 1/2 c. butter). ***UPDATE: I tried the original topping recipe and it came out really powdery with only 1/2 c. butter. If you want the thicker "crunch" topping that the recipe calls for, you really need the full cup of butter to make it work. I also used 5 c. rhubarb, 1 c. strawberry, 1/2 c. sugar and it was nice and tart.

Apple Crisp II
Great Recipe! I followed the reviews and doubled the topping, though I think next time I'll only 1.5x it. (I think it's really about personal preference...my grandmother's used to have a very thin topping, also delicious.) I also only used 1/4 c. water, which I found perfect. I used a mix of spartan, mac, pink lady and granny smith apples. This recipe's definitely a keeper.

Gingerbread Cookies II
I'm convinced that being part of a good cook is making slight adjustments to a recipe as you go along based on your culinary intuition. It's very possible that a good cook could have made the necessary slight adjustments to this recipe to make it delicious - certainly enough people have given it high marks to suggest this. I've never claimed to be a good cook, but I did follow this recipe to a T, and they came out tasting pretty awful - not nearly sweet enough. They were still fun to make, but even with plenty of icing only two got eaten (by me). Disappointing.
