Blueberry Buckle
Really yummy and leaves the house smelling sooo good! It tastes just like a blueberry muffin with delicious sweet topping! I followed the recipe as follows using the full 2 cups of flour but adding one teaspoon vanilla. I opted to use half white and half brown sugar for the crumble topping since I love the taste of brown sugar. I didn't have a problem with the blueberries sinking to the bottom- as a precaution, I did mix the blueberries with 1 tablespoon flour just to be safe before adding them to the batter. It took about 40 minutes in the oven for it to cook completely. Very yummy; will make again!

German Chocolate Cake III
Sooo delicious! 5 stars for taste, but 4 stars overall because of the filling. Everyone that ate this cake couldn't stop raving about how great it was! I made a two-layer cake instead of three but still made the same amount of batter. It took each pan closer about 30 minutes in the oven. Definitely wait for the cakes to completely cool before taking them out or else it will fall apart! Used the suggestion of making cake flour: fill 1 cup with 2 tablespoons cornstarch and then fill the rest of the cup w/ flour (do 2.5 times). I added cornstarch to the filling, but it still didn't solidify completely. It was very soupy and kept spilling down the sides of the cake. I ended up buying some chocolate frosting to frost the sides of the cake to make the presentation look cleaner. Still so tasty though! Will definitely make again!

White Chocolate and Cranberry Cookies
Very delicious if you like sweet cookies (which I do!)! I followed others' suggestions and used less sugar, added half a teaspoon of both vanilla and almond extract, and added a half teaspoon salt. Dried cranberries worked out just fine for me, and I think the brandy did add a special flavor to the cookies. One mistake I made was putting the batter in the refrigerator for a little bit (since I got busy and started doing something else), and I think that caused the cookies to not expand as much (they kept the round ball shape too well). Mmm!
