Wild Blackberry Pie
Followed the recipe exactly, crust was too dry and not sweet. The berries I used were black raspberries, and the filling recipe given was definitely not sweet enough. I think I'd use a different crust recipe for this, add more sugar and a bit more flour.

Coconut Cake II
After not wanting to do just another boxed cake for a special family guest, I picked this up out of my recipe box to try it. The reason I didn't give this cake 5 stars is because; 1. The frosting recipe didn't make enough for the whole cake, if you want to frost the sides, you need to double up the recipe. 2. The frosting is grainy and a bit flat tasting. I'd recommend buying coconut extract and using it in both the cake and frosting. Double the frosting recipe and do add some salt to the cake recipe for balance in flavor. I used sweetened coconut flakes that were already chopped up, and put some on top of the finished cake. All in all, a keeper recipe.

Warm Apple Cinnamon Cobbler
My husband loved this when I made it for him. I didn't buy the pastry flour, so I just used regular whole wheat flour and did minimal mixing.
