Raspberry Pie I
i couldn't find my grandmother's recipe for black raspberry pie, but i wanted to make some, so i went ahead and tried this because it was similar. i used 3 cups of berries instead of 4 (they barely fit, 4 would have overflowed for sure), used UNTHAWED frozen berries because you can't get fresh black raspberries here, used only 3/4 cup sugar, did not use water, used full amount of thickening agents for the reduced amount of berries, otherwise they would have had to increase. i made my grandmother's pie crust, which is amazing. you really need a scratch crust for this, that store bought stuff doesn't compare and your pie won't be anything special using it. i used a milk wash, then sprinkled sugar on top. i tried the two temp baking method, but did 10 minutes and 40 minutes, for perfect golden doneness. adding water and too little thickening ingredients are why people are getting soupy pies. i cut mine open hot from the oven, because i'm impatient like that, and the filling stayed in my pie piece perfectly. also, for people saying they thought the filling turned out like jam, try using frozen berries as well as less sugar. my berries stayed whole and the pie was nice and tart. i think my changes make a 5-star pie easily, but as written, 3-4.

Pistachio Fluff Fruit Salad
this is a good recipe to get started on if you've never made this before. i have eaten several variations, and this is my husband's favorite dessert, so i wanted to make my own. because i don't like marshmallows and also don't want brown bananas in my fluff, i changed it up a bit and my husband said it's the best he's ever had.

Awesome and Easy Creamy Corn Casserole
i've made this recipe several times and we LOVE it! however, tonight, after a day of baking adventures, when i turned my attention to dinner preparations, i found myself out of butter AND down to about a tlbs of sour cream! but i wanted corn casserole to go with my smoked brisket and baked beans, so i decided to do an experiment. i made this recipe without butter, with a scant couple spoonfuls of sour cream, and the addition of some really sharp wisconsin cheddar. amazing! who knew you could cut out all that fat and calories and still have a tasty result?? this will be something we eat a bit more often now that i know cutting out some of the less healthy ingredients doesn't completely ruin it. the mark of a great recipe, thanks!!!
