Dutch Apple Pie

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2012
Outstanding! I did make one change. Hubby said his grandma made apple pies with Granny Smith apples, and they were always too tart for him. I took a tip from a cooking video and used 5 different types of apples to mix flavors and textures. I used one each of the following: Gala, Golden Delicious, Fuji, Jonathan, and Honeycrisp. Hubby said this was the best apple pie he's ever had in his life - and we live down the road from the famous Julian apple pies.

Coconut Cake IV

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2012
A huge, moist, delicious cake. I add a glaze made with shredded coconut, coconut rum, and powdered sugar, and this cake disappears like it's in a magic show.

Easy Meatloaf

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2012
I made the basic meatloaf recipe from this, then used Chef John's Creamy Mushroom Meatloaf recipe for the topping, instead of the brown sugar/mustard/catsup. I'm sure this is great the way it is, but the mushroom sauce makes it fit for serving to guests on a special occasion.

Creamy Mushroom Meatloaf

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2012
This is an excellent recipe. Just be aware that a 2.5 lb meatloaf is a big, honkin' meatloaf! Serves eight? Eight who? Eight linebackers? For regular folks, I would say it serves more like 10-12. But it is delicious and does make for a very moist meatloaf.

Chocolate Cupcakes with Caramel Frosting

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2012
Haven't made the frosting yet, but the cupcakes are the quickest, easiest around, and my chocoholic husband loved them. I usually get 12 of the large cupcakes and two trays of mini-cupcakes size from this recipe. A quick note: someone was disappointed because the cupcakes failed when she tried to substitute yogurt for the mayonnaise. When you see mayo in a baking recipe, it it almost always taking the place of the oil and the eggs, as in this recipe. Mayonnaise has both oil and eggs in it; yogurt has neither one, so of course it will not work as a substitute.
