Rhubarb Strawberry Crunch
I'm giving this recipe itself 4 stars (I'd probably do 3.5 if I could) as it helped me be able to have a base to make some adjustments from. Like some other reviewers have said, the proportions are a bit off for my liking. I used 2.5 c strawberries, 2 c rhubarb (that was all I had), and about 1/3 c sugar plus 3Tbs flour mixed together with the fruit. Fresh strawberries are very sweet, and 1 cup of sugar was just way too much. For the topping, I did 2/3c each of dark brown sugar, flour, and old fashioned oats with a 1/2 c of butter. I also added a 1/2tsp of orange extract, and think I'll do 1 tsp next time. I have also added almond extract to the topping. This seems to be the best combination and amounts of ingredients for my fiance and me, it's sweet but not overpowering, and just the right amount of crumble on top!

Summer Lasagna
We made this tonight with a few adjustments for what we had on hand. We used ground turkey instead of beef (I don't eat beef), and a butternut squash pasta sauce instead of the tomato sauce. We had yellow summer squash from our local farm instead of zucchini, so we used that. We followed other reviewers and salted the squash first, and we used extra cheese. My boyfriend and I both agreed that this was absolutely delicious, and one of the best meals that we have eaten! We'll definitely make this again.

Fresh Southern Peach Cobbler
I've made this several times using fresh peaches from the farm stand we frequent. I have not had any of the problems some of the negative reviews mention about runny filling, it being too sweet, or the topping part not coming out quite right. It's been the perfect sweetness for my super sweet tooth and my boyfriend's not so sweet tooth, it's not been too runny (try leaving the peaches in the oven for slightly longer before adding the topping would be my suggestion for that), and we enjoy the topping very much. I made the original recipe the first time, the second time I changed the sugar to splenda and we liked that a little better (made us feel slightly less guilty as well), and the 3rd time I added about 2/3 tsp of almond extract to the topping and a 1/2 tsp to the peaches. The winning combination for us was the addition of the almond extract. It adds a whole new dimension to the cobbler. For the cinnamon sugar that goes on top, many people have said it's hard to tell when it's done- don't use the whole amount! I don't, I just sprinkle enough cinnamon sugar (which I keep premade in a spice jar in my spice cabinet) to look pretty, and we're good to go!
