Yummy Blueberry Cobbler
It says that the batter "will be thin"...mine definitely was not. Also, the 1-1/8 cup of sugar topping just sat on top and had to be brushed off, what a waste. I did NOT add the water because it made no sense to me. Thankfully I didn't because the whole thing bubbled over anyways and it would have been an even bigger mess if I had. One thing I did was add 2/3 cup of milk to the batter to make it thinner when I realized it wasn't thin enough to spread out over the berries. With my adjustments it cooked up nicely. I'd make it again with my adjustments only:2/3 cup extra milk in batter, no water at the end, only 1/4c sugar for topping or maybe substitute an oatmeal crumb topping or some coconut.

Apple Harvest Pound Cake with Caramel Glaze
My son found this recipe 3 years ago and made it for me on Mother's Day. I have requested it for my birthday and Mother's Day ever since! It is AMAZING! He also makes it for family gatherings and it is requested for those now too.

Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie
I am a VERY picky cookie eater...I only like chocolate chip if they are chewy. My 16 yr. old son loves to bake cookies, found this recipe and made them...they were gone by the end of the day! We all loved them, even picky me!
