Hello. Want to use the recipe "How to Bake a Corned Beef Brisket. It says cook time is 3 hours. # 4 says bake the meat for covered for 2 hours. Remove lid and roast an additional hour. Vegetables can be added the last 1 1/2 hours.....are vegetables added 1/2 hour before the roast is removed from the oven and the lid is removed for the last hour of cooking? Thank You .

Great question John, let me clarify. The vegetables will take 1 to 1-1/2 hours to bake so put them in after the brisket has baked 1-1/2 hours. Does this help?

Hi JUlie! Happy Holidays! I’m looking for a good icing for your sugar cookies. I made them, and we are going to decorate this weekend….any suggestions?

Thanks, Leslie! This is my go-to frosting recipe: You can thin it to a glaze or make it as thick as you want. Let me know if you have any questions my friend!

I just made your Swedish apple pie dessert and wow; I had to taste it right out of the oven to make sure the topping was fully cooked. So, so delicious and easy to make. I only had a more shallow pie pan and cut down just a wee bit on the sugar but oh my goodness, how good is this. I used what ever apples I had which were two Granny Smith and two honey crisp; I only needed four apples. Finally, an apple pie I can make without all the fuss. Thank you.

Thank you so much, Liz. I'm so glad that you enjoyed it. It's one of our favorite pies because it's NO FUSS!
