Apple Pie by Grandma Ople
This was absolutely AMAZING! I have never made an apple pie in my life, but I saw the reviews on this one and knew it was a good place to start. I will never try another recipe for apple pie again! I did the same adjustments that everyone else has mentioned- adding a bit of cinnamon, nutmeg, and 1 tsp vanilla (removing 1/4 tsp of the water). I brushed my bottom crust with egg whites to keep it from getting soggy. I also poured 3/4 of the mixture on the apples before I put the top lattice crust on, then the rest over the crust. I sprinkled the top with a bit of cinnamon sugar. I left the baking times the same, but put a silicone pie crust edge guard on. The edges were perfect, the top was nearing a little too brown for my liking, even putting it on the second lowest rack. But it was UNBELIEVABLE nonetheless. I didn't have an issue with the liquid mixture thickening up on me before I could pour it on the top, but I didn't actually weave my lattice, just laid down lines one way, then the other. So it was quick, and the saucepan stayed warm enough to keep it runny while I did it. I do recommend putting tinfoil on the oven shelf below the pie while it cooks-- I got some puddles on the tinfoil, so I was glad I left it there. It seems like it would be incredible to eat warm apple pie with ice cream, but the filling is too thin and runny if it's still warm- after it's been cooled in the fridge, it's firm enough to make good cuts without a runny mess. MAKE THIS NOW. Don't wait!

Cream Corn Like No Other
I have never had "from-scratch" cream corn, and this was amazing. I brought it to Thanksgiving dinner and it got rave reviews. I made it exactly as the recipe states, and wouldn't change a thing. I am definitely a cream-corn convert!

Fabulous Fruit Salad
Easy and quick. I left out the nectarines, and it was still great. I added green grapes cut in half to give it some different texture. I used 6 oz lime yogurt and 2 oz plain yogurt to cut the lime flavor a bit. The best part is the cranberries and walnuts!
