Old Fashioned Coconut Cream Pie
This was a wonderful coconut cream pie, but I did take some advice from other reviewers. First of all, I used a double boiler over medium heat & stirred with a whisk (it actually does make a big difference in smoothness) & it thickened nicely & didn't burn. I made two pies, both with 2 cups half & half & 1 cup 2% milk, & that was definitely the right decision. But for one pie I used 1/4 cup flour & 1/4 cup cornstarch, & it was pretty good still, but you could definitely taste raw flour. I can't even imagine using just 1/2 cup of flour. For the second pie I used 1/3 cup cornstarch--no flour at all, & it was SOOOO MUCH BETTER. I also used coconut extract instead of vanilla, just to get more of a coconut-y flavor. And yes--use deep dish pie shells. This is a very good recipe, but take my advice & LEAVE OUT THE FLOUR!!! You'll be glad you did.

Pistachio Bread
This bread was wonderful! My father loves anything pistachio, and he really loved this. The rest of the family loved it too. I left out the cherries, and it was still great. I have made it numerous times, and it never lasts more than 24 hours!!
