To Die For Blueberry Muffins
Excellent muffins, come out great every time. I usually double the blueberries and cut about 1/3 of the sugar out.

Date Bars I
Great recipe. Per some of the other commenter's recommendations, I cut the amount of fat and flour, and used butter instead of shortening. I took one star off for sweetness. I usually like things less sweet than others so I put only about 30% of the sugar called for in, but it was still too much. Dates are extremely sweet fruits already, there's no need to add more sugar to the filling (or crust). Next time I'll cut all the added sugar.

Grandma Sal's Peach Kuchen
I got this exact same recipe from my mom. It's amazing, and very easy to make. I usually make a couple small changes when I make it; I use 1 cup sour cream instead of heavy cream (good flavor and less fat), reduce the sugar to 1/2 cup, use whole eggs instead of just the yokes, and add a splash of brandy into custard.
