Amazing Strawberry Pound Cake
Overall, a moist tasty pound cake that always gets positive comments when I make it for a birthday cake. The recipe calls for loaf pans, but I have never made it that way. I have used it twice now for a 4-tiered round cake (I use a pound cake when making a fondant-covered cake as a sturdier cake is required for stability). One batch makes 2 x 6” cakes; bake for 40 min. I haven’t tested it for other pan sizes. For high altitude and personal preference, I make the following adjustments to recipe: • Omit ground almonds • Add ½ tsp baking powder • Sub buttermilk for milk • Chop strawberries rather than quarter • Add 4 drops red food coloring

Rhubarb and Strawberry Pie
After reading other reviews, I added a tsp. of cinnamon, zest from one orange and a 2 tsp. corn starch to fruit mixture. I let in stand in turned-off oven for a while after baking time and used a lattice top to be sure rhubarb was cooked through. The pie looked and smelled wonderful and the filling was just right too! Not runny, not crunchy, perfect balance of sweet and tart. Took it to a summer BBQ and everyone went nuts over this pie!!

Avocado Tzatziki
Delicious! Made with homemade falafel salad and it was so yummy. I thought it might taste more like guacamole, but it is definitely tzatziki.
