German Apple Cake I
Super easy recipe! Delicious results! This recipe is very similar to the "One Bowl Apple Cake" I've seen on Facebook. Following other reviewers suggestions I made a couple of changes. 1 1/2c sugar, 1/2c oil, 2 heaping tsp cinnamon, 1 tsp ground ginger. The directions on the FB recipe instruct you to mix together the sugar, egg, oil, and spices in a large bowl. Add the apples directly to the wet mixture as you cut them up to prevent browning. After all the apples were added, I sprinkled the dry ingredients over the top and mixed together till the flour was absorbed. I didn't experience the super thick batter other reviewers describe. Next time I'll try the 1/2 white 1/2 brown sugar mixture for more depth of flavor. Definitely a keeper!

Baby Back Ribs
I made the Baby Back Ribs this weekend and loved them. I made several changes suggested by other reviewers: I put a dry rub on the ribs, wrapped them in foil, and put them in the fridge overnight. In the morning I put BBQ sauce on the ribs, re-wrapped them in foil, and left them in the fridge for a couple more hours. I baked them at 300 degrees for 2 1/2 hrs. After 2 1/2 hrs, I removed the foil, put more BBQ sauce on the ribs and baked them at 350 degrees for 20 more minutes. The meat fell off the bone! Next time, I'll take the ribs out of the foil at 2 hrs, put BBQ sauce on and bake them at 350 for the last 20-30 minutes. It's a recipe worth repeating.

Made 1/2 batch today as a trial run for a Super Bowl party next weekend. Made the recipe exactly as printed and they came out great!! What I found out: make sure to roll the dough thin so they cook all the way through; flipping them a few times during cooking browns them evenly; remove them from the oil when they turn golden brown (we didn't like the more done ones); next time I'm going to add cinnamon to the dough for a different twist on the original. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
