Mango, Corn, and Black Bean Salsa
Maybe it was just not my type of flavors, but it lacked something. I think if the corn were not canned, but rather grilled or roasted, it would have added more flavor. Also it seemed like too much lime juice. The addition of pineapple or something would have given it a bit more character too. Oh, well. You live and learn. Next....

Pie Crust III
I am terrible at making traditional pie crust. I haven't got the patience for all the cutting in that it requires. That is why this recipe is a lifesaver! It is so easy to simply mix everything together and go. I do have a word of advice though for all those reviewers that talked about how difficult this is to work with. I completely agree. Becauses of the oil it can be hard to roll out, sticks to your paper or counter, and it shrinks up when it is baked. The simple solution to this is to refridgerate the dough for a while (I did for about 2 hours) so it can firm up a bit. Then work quickly while rolling it out and make sure to poke it with a fork all over if you are prebaking it for a custard pie. It turns out so flaky and beautiful (especially if you add an egg wash to the top to make it crisp up a bit and turns it golden). I will not even attempt another recipe any more because I had never gotten compliments on crust the way I do with this recipe. Try it! You'll see.

No Sugar Apple Pie
This pie was delicious! I made my own pie crust (2/3 c. canola oil, 2 c flour, 6 T ice water, 1 pkt Stevia in the Raw, dash of cinnamon). The first time I made this I took it over to a friend's house. She has a Type 1 diabetic son and he was able to have some, which I was happy about. I am sure the natural sugar and carbs in this affects a diabetics numbers but at least there is no added sugar. I did change from 1 T cinnamon to 1 T apple pie spice (I find too much cinnamon a bit offensive). Other than that, changed nothing and it turned out so good that I will start using this pie recipe over the touted Apple Pie by Grandma Ople that is on here that everyone raves about (I made it once with just ok results). This pie is my new go to apple pie recipe, sugar free or not!
