Blueberry Coffee Cake III
I used the suggestions and added 3/4 cup of milk, 2 tsp of vanilla. To give it that something extra I also used the zest and juice of one lemon in the cake mixture. Once the cake cooled I made a lemon glaze. For the glaze use 2/3 cups confectioners' sugar, sifted, zest and juice of one lemon, and 1 tsp. of milk. Mix well and drizzle on top of the coffee cake. My family loved it!

Mexican Steak Torta
After living in Texas for over 13 years I know Torta's and tacos well! These were amazing, my family devoured them! The second time I made them I changed the recipe a bit. Both ways were great. Thank you Sarah for an amazing recipe!

Dad's Cookies
I made these according to the directions and my family LOVED them! The cookies were easy to make and turned out perfect. They were devoured within two days and I'm making more today. Thank you for sharing this recipe.
