Apple Pie by Grandma Ople

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2015
Really hate to not love someone's grandmother's apple pie but there was too much sugar and needed at least some cinnamon. The flavor of the apples was lost in the overwhelming amount of sugar. But I thought the roux approached was interesting.

Adrienne's Cucumber Salad

Reviewed: May 17, 2015
Just like cabbage for slaw you need to 'sweat' the cucumber first. If you don't then water from the cucumber releases into the dressing which in turn waters down the dressing. For two cucumbers I toss the slices with a teaspoon or so of salt and place into a strainer over a large bowl. Then I place this into the fridge for at least 30 minutes. The salt pulls the extra water out of the cucumber and melts into the bowl along with the water. There is very little salt taste left on the cucumber.

Black-Eyed Pea Dip

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2015
Yuck! May not have been so bad had there not been so much sugar. The sugar masks the flavor of the cilantro and black eyed peas.

Broccoli Beef I

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2014
I made this twice. Once as is and the second time with the following adjustments. I seared the meat in sesame oil and then removed the meat and then sautéed on med-high a small julienne sliced onion along with the broccoli until crisp tender. Added back in the beef along with the sauce mix. Then proceeded with recipe. For the sauce I omitted the flour and added 2 or 3 teaspoons of cornstarch and substituted brown sugar instead of white sugar. Brown sugar adds to the savory favors of the meat. I probably added more garlic but I typically add more garlic then the recipe suggests.
