I've been cooking for about 10 years and while I don't particularly enjoy cooking per se, I do love food and more importantly, I like to feed the people I love.

I used brown sugar because I didn't have any piloncillo on hand. The Masa gives it a subtly distinct flavor. Delicious.

I had some leftover clams, a lone potato, and some tired carrots in the fridge, and I wanted to make clam chowder. This is the recipe I used. It did not disappoint. I didn’t even miss not having bacon in it. Delicious!

This is one of my son's favorite dishes. I've always made it with smoked salmon because at the time I found this delicious recipe, I did not have access to Swedish anchovies (Amazon only sold books back then) and I didn't know I could use regular anchovies. I will have to try it this way now! I vouch for the smoked salmon substitution however, and highly recommend this rich, comforting winter dish.

Apple Pie by Grandma Ople

This is the only recipe you need for an old fashioned American apple pie. It came out absolutely perfect and incredibly delicious, and got rave reviews from my in-laws. The filling is very sweet as is customary for American desserts. I do feel adding cinnamon is necessary, however, for the full Americana effect. I followed this advice from the comments: - Sprinkled quite a bit of cinnamon over the cut apples *before* assembling. I didn't measure how much cinnamon, sorry. - I poured 2/3 of the glaze over the apples once they were in the pie plate and before placing the lattice top. Then I placed the lattice top and poured the rest of the glaze over the entire thing. Finally, I spread the remaining glaze over the lattice top with a pastry brush. - I placed the assembled pie on a roasting tin while baking to catch any spills, although there weren't any. My own tips: - If you've never done a lattice top, look at the video. This was my first time making one and it came out beautiful. - DEFINITELY let this cool before cutting! I let the pie sit for about 45 minutes before serving and it was still very runny. Thank yo Grandma Ople!
