Blackberry Cobbler

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2011
This recipe is AMAZING! We spent the day prior picking blackberries and since we picked more than I knew what to do with, I replaced the water that the recipe calls for with blackberry juice. It was easy; I just mashed up about two cups in a pot on the stove and smashed them through a sieve (the pulp made great fruit leather!). Using the blackberry juice made it easy to cut the sugar to just under a 1/4 cup. Like some of the other reviewers, I rolled out the dough and put it in the pan then layered the berries followed by a second layer of dough on top. I also replaced 3/4 cup of regular flour with whole-wheat flour. This recipe lends itself to adjustments and still tastes incredible. Just in case you want to go "old school" style, this cobbler turns out awesome if it is baked in a deep cast iron skillet. Great if you’re trying to increase your iron intake! Thanks for sharing your Grandma's cobbler. We love it!!

Amish White Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2008
A little too sweet the first time around but I reduced the sugar and it was much more to our liking. Otherwise it would be a five star recipe.

Lemon Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2008
Great flavor!! I was in a pinch since my hubby was on his way home and NOTHING was even remotely close to being ready for dinner. I looked up this recipe and was very pleased with the results minus the foamy texture. I substituted lemon juice for the fresh lemon and it was still great. I took it off of the stove about 2 minutes after the egg/lemon mixture was added. Rather than serving it immediately as the directions state I let it sit for about 10 minutes and stirred it a couple of times. That decreased the foamy texture so that the rich flavor came through without all of the "fluff". I also added soy chicken strips which I cooked first then added into the soup. My husband LOVED it and is taking the leftovers to work for lunch. I will definitely make this again, even if I'm not in a rush!!!

Pumpkin Cookies I

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2008
Fantastic! This recipe was super easy and SOO DELICIOUS!! I reduced the sugar by half, cut the butter by half and substituted it with applesauce. My neighbors couldn't get enough of them and now I have actually had some call me up to request a batch. This time I will pass on the recipe with the cookies. Love, love, love them!
