Snappy Green Beans
I was not too smitten with this. My husband actually disliked it because of the onion (even though I only used half). I cooked the bacon in the microwave, like one of the reviews suggested, but I think now that that was a mistake and the dish needs the flavor from the bacon grease. I also used red wine vinegar and I added some minced garlic as suggested, and I think that is definitely the way to go.

Beef Egg Rolls
I just made these for the second time and everybody absolutely loved them!! I only made minor changes: I used fresh (grated) ginger, and I added some Chinese five spice, a grated carrot, and a cup of bean sprouts. Since I did not use sherry the first time I made it, I now have to advise not to omit it because it really changes the flavor (yummie!!). Thanks for this great recipe!

Apple Butter with Honey
I thought this was pretty good. I used Golden Delicious because I had them left over and I used more than the recipe said, because of the reviews. I also used a little less liquid and should probably have cut it down by more (a cup instead of half a cup). I still had to strain it a little. I also used only half the spices and only 1/4 of a cup of honey and it is still very good, not overly spiced. I also simply used my hand mixer to blend the apples, which worked great.
