Apple Pie by Grandma Ople

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2012
I have had Grandma Ople's apple pie in my recipe box for quite a while, but had never tried it. I wanted to take it to a Thanksgiving carry-in at work and decided to make one for a trial run. I read a lot of reviews, but with the exception of mixing some of the sauce with the apples first, and using the apples I had on hand, (Gala and Jonathan), I made it exactly as written. If Grandma Ople didn't feel the need for extra spices, doggone it--neither do I!!! It was really superb, carry-in worthy--no doubt. I am a pie baker and own several pie pans--none of which were at my house. They were borrowed or left at someone's house with pie in them, and I found myself at home at 2:00 in the morning with nothing to bake this pie in but a flimsy aluminum pan that I had saved from a store-bought pie. It turned out great! Can't wait to try this in a proper pan. I do think that I will bake on 350 for the whole time as I would normally do. Mt pie had a few little burnt spots using the 425/350 method. Also, if you are new to pie-baking, it is a good idea to place some strips of aluminum foil loosely around the edges of the crust for 10-15 minutes of baking time to prevent burning. Wonderful recipe--thanks for sharing!

Chocolate Black Tea Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2008
I am a pretty good baker, was intrigued by this recipe and the good reviews. And-----there is always the possibility that I messed up--!! I was careful to take it out on time, mine was not dry, just dull. It was fun, though, making something unusual always is.

Chimichurri Sauce

Reviewed: May 19, 2006
I tried this recipe and found it a very good match for my tastebuds. Although I liked it very much, not ALL of the family did. That is just a difference in people, NOT because it is a bad recipe.

Pumpkin Coconut Bread

Reviewed: May 19, 2006
Made this twice, second time a double batch. Nothing but GOOD to say about this recipe. I leave out the clove and add a little extra of the other spices. Took out enough batter before adding the coconut to make one loaf and it was great, too. I don't even LIKE pumpkin, but I like this.

Pancakes I

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2006
Read "The Subtle Art of Perfect Pancakes" on this site. This article has several tips, one of which is to refrigerate the batter for a while to allow the gluten to settle down and let the baking powder start to act, resulting in fluffy pancakes. Also , do not stir before using as this pops all the little bubbles created from the sitting. Interesting, huh!?! Anyway, except for a little vanilla, made recipe as it reads and I was happy with them.

Honey Ginger Carrots

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2006
Was afraid these would be heavy-sweet, but they had a delicate sweetness that brought out the flavor of the carrots. Used frozen carrots with 1 T. less butter and a couple swipes of fresh ginger. Added a little salt at serving time which gave them a nice sweet-salty taste that I like. A good blend of flavors, happy with this recipe.

McCormick's Classic Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2005
Made this for my nephew's kindergarten "Thanksgiving Feast",(a VERY big event!) Liked the idea of a little less spice for little ones, but still a traditional pumpkin pie. Made a full, pretty pie. Good!

Spicy Black Bean Potato Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2005
So good! A lot was gone while it was still warm. Used half mayo, half Miracle Whip, canned jalapenos, and all the bacon went in the salad.
