Ruth's Grandma's Pie Crust

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2012
I'm truly awful at making pie crusts but now that I've tried this recipe I feel redeemed, pie crusts are no longer my enemy. I used this along with Grandma Opels Apple Pie recipe from this site. My boyfriend was disappointed that I didn't make a graham cracker crust but after tasting it he's a convert. The only modification I made was to use butter flavored shortening. The texture of the crust was buttery and flaky with a hint of sweetness. As others have mentioned you'll end up with an odd amount of leftover dough but I didn't find this to be an issue, more for me to snack on.

Apple Pie by Grandma Ople

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2012
This pie is delicious! I used Ruth's Grandmas Pie Crust recipe fom this site. After reviewing others suggestions I made several modifications...First, while I cut up 8 apples unless they're really small there's no way they will all fit. I added vanilla extract, cinnamon, and cloves to the liquid, along with an extra tablespoon of flour. I then added the apples directly to the mixture and thoroughly coated them. I don't like my crust too brown so as another reviewer suggested I baked it at 350 for approximately 75 minutes, in retrospect next time I'll stick to the temperature recommended in the recipe. I coated the bottom of the crust and the lattice with an egg wash. Overall this is one of the simplest and tastiest apple pies I've ever made, no doubt it'll become a new favorite in my household.

Jo's Rosemary Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2011
This is my standard recipe for when we have guests for dinner because it always turns out slightly crunchy on top while soft & tender inside. Delicious! As other users have suggested I substitute milk for water and add some crushed garlic for a little extra zing.

Spinach Stuffed Chicken Breast

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2008
This recipe is not only quite tasty but VERY easy to make as well. I did have a few variations. First, I added a little cheddar and spiced up the spinach stuffing by adding garlic salt and a dash of cayenne pepper. I also used extra thick pepper crusted bacon which I cooked for 3 min in the microwave before wrapping the chicken. Finally, I sprinkled some paprika over the chicked right before placing in the oven. The chicken turned out so good I ate 2 pieces!

Drop Biscuits and Gravy

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2008
This is the best recipe for sausage gravy that I've found on this site so far. I did make a few changes: I used Jimmy Dean Hot Sausage, cooked it in bacon grease with some Portuguese Sausage, then added a dash of garlic salt and cayenne pepper at the end. The biscuits were pretty good but in the future I'll stick to my favorite buttery biscuits recipe. The gravy was very easy to make. It's a keeper!

Buttery Rolls

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2008
I recently purchased a bread machine and this was the first recipe I tried. It turned out so well that now I make these rolls at least twice a month. They're light and fluffy with a great flavor. I really enjoy the fact that they're not too dense. I like to leave a little extra flour coating the top of the rolls and then the last 5 minutes of baking I drizzle butter over the top.

Tex-Mex Burger with Cajun Mayo

Made no changes, recipe is perfect the way it is, nice and hot! We had these for dinner tonight and my BF must have told me at least 5 times how good they were.

Swiss Chicken Casserole I

Reviewed: May 23, 2007
I thought this was a simple and tasty recipe. I like my food spicy so I did alter it quite a bit. First, I marinated the chicken for a few hours in McCormick's mesquite grill mate seasoning. Then I used two cans of soup (one cream of chicken and one cheddar). I also added some paprika, cayenne pepper and mushrooms to the soup. Pepper jack cheese was substituted for swiss. I left out the butter on top of the stuffing and instead sprayed it with Pam cooking spray and a little bit of margine, then I topped it off with some of the extra soup. The chicken (sliced thin) turned out very tender. There was enough extra "gravy" for me to pour over the Slow Cooker Mashed Potatoes (from this site) I made to accompany the meal. I will make this again but next time I will probably skip the stuffing.

Slow Cooker Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: May 23, 2007
These are the best mashed potatoes I have ever had, they are so rich and creamy! I deviated from the recipe slightly by adding extra garlic and some chicken rub seasoning to the boiling water. I also used low-fat sour cream and cream cheese. These will be a staple in my household, especially during the holiday season.

Turkey a la King

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2006
My boyfriend and I both loved this recipe though I did modify it a bit. I added peppers (green and orange), extra mushrooms, an onion and half a bag of frozen vegetables. I also doubled the sauce b/c of all the extra vegis. After adding the flour to the frying pan I poured everything into a large soup pan and added the remaining ingredients. Before adding the diced turkey I rubbed it with spices. My BF and I like spicy food so once the ingredients were simmering I added some crushed red pepper, chicken seasoning, garlic salt and cayenne pepper. I served it over basmati rice. It reheats really well. I will make this again!

Guinness® Corned Beef

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2005
I have made this recipe for years. It also works well with double chocolate stout beer! I cook mine on low in the crockpot all day. The aroma is wonderful...The next morning I fry up some potatoes, onion, and green pepper, add salt & pepper to taste along with a dash of cider vinegar and then add the corned beef...makes delicious hash. I like to top it with a sour cream/hot mustard sauce.

Apple Crumble Pie

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2005
This pie was a huge hit at home! I used a combo of white and brown sugar. It was a bit runny so next time I'll add flour to the apple mixture (2 Fuji, 2 Granny Smith, 1 Braeburn)as other reviewers suggested. I spiced it up by increasing the cinnamon plus I added some allspice and nutmeg.
