German Apple Cake I
I am giving this recipe three stars because it did not turn out the way I expected. I did change a couple of things but didn't think that would change the recipe that much. First, I used a little more than 4 cups of apples. I had about a cup of apples sprinkled with sugar and cinnamon left over from an apple crumb pie, so I used those apples along with some additional plain apples. I also used two loaf pans rather than one 9 x 13 pan, and I sprinkled the pans with a sugar/cinnamon mixture rather than flour. The loaves did not bake through, even though I baked them much longer than called for -- at least 55 minutes; the center of the loaves were soft and wet. I think this happened because I used more than 4 cups of apples, and one of the apples was very juicy. It is a little hard to judge because of the consistency, but I think if I make this again I would cut down on the sugar and definitely use only 4 cups of apple.

Banana Banana Bread
This recipe is good, however the next time I make it I will add vanilla and chocolate chips.

Jamie's Cranberry Spinach Salad
I have been on this site for years and have seen this recipe but have never made it. Tonight I made an altered version of it, and it was very good. My husband and I cannot eat seeds of any kind, so I eliminated the poppy and sesame seeds. I also did not have minced onion - dried or fresh. I basically used the vinegars, sugar and oil in the proportion suggested, and it was light and enjoyable. Thanks!
