Easy Batter Fruit Cobbler
Easiest dessert recipe ever! This is exactly what a fruit cobbler should taste and look like - soft, cake like batter with browned edges that bakes up around the fruit. Only change I make is to reduce butter to 3TBL and add 1/2 t vanilla to the batter. I've used just about every fruit - frozen and fresh - out there and it always turns out perfectly. I always have a bag or two of frozen berries so I'm always prepared to make a last minute dessert.

Banana Pudding IV
I have been making this for years and it never fails to get rave reviews. I have tried it with all low fat/low sugar ingredients and you can't taste the difference. Now that DH and I are empty nesters, I make a half recipe and it too turns out wonderful. Couple of tricks I've learned to ramp it up a notch are - 1) I slice the bananas and then squeeze some fresh lemon juice over them and toss. This not only helps keep them from turning brown but serves to cut the sweetness slightly and 2) I don't like the artificial banana flavor in the instant banana pudding so to bump up the banana flavor I take one (or two) bananas, slightly mash them and then nuke them on high for 20 sec stirring after 10sec. I then stir in a squeeze of lemon and mash them really well and add to the mixture before stirring in the whipped cream. The microwave really softens the banana and causes it to release it's juice really adding to the flavor. Try it next time and see what you think...

Cream Cheese Frosting II
Yum, Yum, Yum! I could eat this stuff all by itself. I followed the recipe exactly except I used 1.5 cups of p.sugar instead of 2. Placed it in the fridge for about 20 min to firm up and then piped it on Pumpkin Ginger cupcakes. Big hit at the office and everyone raved about the frosting as well as the cupcakes.
