Ginger Pear Bread
This bread is so good! Only change I made was I had to use canola instead of vegetable oil because that was what I had on hand. I live at a high altitude so I had to bake it an extra 5 minutes and it turned out perfectly. So moist and very flavorful! I shared the recipe with all of my Facebook friends.

Mushroom Pork Chops
This was pretty good but needed bit more seasoning or something. I made this almost exactly as written except that I added a about a cup of white wine - 1/4 cup to deglaze the pan after browning the chops and the rest I mixed into the soup before adding it to the pan. After I made it, I read some of the other reviews (I usually do it before I make something but didn't this time) and next time I'll add some minced garlic and herbs. Served it with wild rice blend but I think it would also be good with mashed potatoes.

Coconut Poke Cake
I absolutely love coconut cake and decided to make this cake for my birthday. I took the advice of some of the other reviewers and poured the cream mixture slowly over the cake to make sure it was spread equally throughout the cake. With the amount of liquid, I was afraid the cake would be really soggy but it was perfectly moist. The only reason I'm not giving it 4 stars is because it was a bit sweet and didn't have a pronounced coconut flavor even with all the coconut on the top. Maybe next time, I'll add some coconut to the cake mix before baking.
