Apple crisp is one of my favorite types of desserts and unfortunately I was disappointed with tis recipe. My opinion is just that the crispier the crisp the better. I feel that the flour in this recipe kept the rest of the ingredients from crisping as much and kind of killed the sweet flavor of the other components. Next time I would probably leave out the flour and use more butter. Despite my personal opinion, other people in the house really enjoyed it the way it was. It just depends on with type of apple crisp you personally enjoy.

Crispy Oven Chicken
I followed the recipe as directed without adding other ingredients or changing things and I would say it was disappointing but for such a simple entree I wasn't really expecting to be blown away to begin with. It was ok, but I think the breading came off very easy. I am use to using egg instead of ranch and I don't think the ranch held up as well when coating the chicken with the crackers and herbs/spices. It was an easy recipe though but I would recommend what others have done and suggest people add their own favorite spices/herbs to the breading mixture.

Beer Mi Asian Meatball Subs
FANTASTIC! AMAZING! DELICIOUS! What other words can I put in shouty caps to emphasize how great this dish is?! WORTH THE TIME AND EFFORT! :) The flavors from the pickled veggies, the meatballs, and the cilantro compliment each other very well. Try it!!!

Strawberries and Cream Dessert Squares
This is definitely a GREAT dessert especially if you love strawberries and cream already! It was simple and delicious albeit time consuming- but only because it requires that you cool different components before putting them together. Definitely worth the time though. The sugar cookie bottom layer is difficult to cut through but only when it's cool from being kept in the refrigerator. At room temp it is easy to cut through. I will be making this recipe again for sure!

Whiskey and Beer BBQ Chicken Sliders
Delicious Sliders and not too hot or spicy. Instead of regular BBQ sauce I use a spicy honey and it gave it a little kick but nothing unbearable. Quick & easy!

Banana-Chocolate Chip Cupcakes
These cupcakes are DELICIOUS! ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS! I'm not usually a big banana fan but thought that with the chocolate chips the two would compliment each other very well and they do! I would highly recommend this to anyone and it has quickly become a favorite!

Carrot Cake Cupcakes
I like carrot cake and these cupcakes looked fun to try. The cream cheese frosting is always good with carrot cake but like many pre made mixes the Betty Crocker carrot cake mix doesn't have carrots in it but 'carrot flavored pieces'. When I mixed the batter I grated some carrots and added those in. The hardest part of this, and yes there is one, is rolling the fruit roll ups into carrots. It's sticky and kind of difficult and they don't quit come out looking like carrots, at least not when I did it. All in all 4 spoons, carrot cake and cream cheese are delicious. The carrot candies come off in one bit so you get all that in a mouthful but it's still good!
