Creamy Blueberry Pie
I liked this pie, probably better than regular blueberry pie. I made it exactly as directed and it was good, but it could be better. The next time I made it, I didn't think there was enough blueberries in the pie so I doubled to 6 cups. I cooked 3 cups and mashed and thickened on the stove to reduce to 1 1/2 cups. Cool then add remaining berries and sugar. It was really, really sweet, so I reduced the sugar to 3/4 cup using the doubled blueberries. I added a peeled grated apple squeezed dry in a towel to the blueberries to help thicken (tip from Americas test kitchen, pectin in the apple will help to thicken) and I did not use flour in the filling because that has a thick gluey taste in this pie. I used 2 T. quick cooking tapioca ground. I added 1t. vanilla to the filling and some grated lemon zest. So, given that I made it as directed and then again with these changes, I hope you try it either way, but if nothing else, reduce the sugar it is really, really sweet as is so add less and taste, then add more if you want.

Zucchini Brownies
Made it exactly as directed and they are really, really good. Hubby who dislikes carrot cake or anything green for that matter had no idea zucchini was in here and he loved them. They are very moist, dark chocolate, fudge like brownies. I could not see any of the zucchini in the brownies after they were baked. I grated my zucchini first before doing anything else and by the time I added it, it made a thick but moist batter. I will make these again. Frosting is equally good.

Apple-Stuffed Acorn Squash
Made it exactly as directed with only the addition of salt and pepper. In a word delicious. I love it, hubby loved it and our house guesst said "this is really good". I too was a little afraid of the cheese in this but that in my opinion put it over the top. Next time, and there will be a next time, I would cube the squash and serve it all in a bowl because a whole 1/2 of squash stuffed was alot and hard to eat with the peel on and trust me you want to gobble it up.
