Fresh Rhubarb Pie
Excellent -- this made the crispest bottom crust I've ever had in a pie. The key is in the way that the sugar/ flour mixture is divided and placed. Genius! My husband thought it was the best rhubarb he had ever had (and he grew up with rhubarb bushes and will not concede this on any other pie over his mother's amazing pies). I like my rhubarb pie a bit more tart so I will reduce the sugar slightly next time, but my family thought it was perfect just the way it was.

Daddy's Popcorn
This was great. I would recommend salting to taste since everyone has such different preferences with saltiness. I thought this was fantastic. We'll definitely use this recipe from now on. If you like olive oil, it's nice to use half olive oil in place of some of the canola and season with rosemary and garlic. Thanks John for sharing this. I've tried a few other stove top recipes and this is the first that I've loved!

Homemade Sweetened Condensed Milk
One of the reviewers mentioned that you should cook this on low heat for 20 to 30 minutes till it reduces down into a thick syrup. I would definitely do that! I didn't read the reviews as I was in a hurry and made the recipe as written. As written, this is not thick enough to be used in most recipes calling for sweetened condensed. I made a key lime pie recipe that I've made many times using the SC milk from this recipe, and it did not set up after baking. It looked too thin when I put it in the oven, but at that point, I didn't have many options. If you don't want to ruin your recipe, cook this 20 to 30 min on low heat (it can boil over) until it is the thick and syrupy consistency you are accustomed to.
