Yummy Blueberry Cobbler
I just made this and it turned out great! I would have given 5 stars but I did make some changes. The first thing I did was use 5 cups of berries (wild blueberries)! I like lots of fruit. I did decrease the sugar some but still found it quite sweet. I didn't really mind the sweetness so much but I found it overpowered the blueberry taste. Next time I will half the sugar in the milk mixture and see how that goes. Because I didn't read the recipe thoroughly, I ended up mixing all the dry ingredients and then adding the milk. However (before adding milk),after reading some concerns about runny berries, I took a handful of the flour/sugar mixture and sprinkled it over the berries and then just shook the pan gently to get the flour down through the rest of the berries. No runny berries here. I also added extra cinnamon for personal taste. I will be making this again.

Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cake
I would like to give it 5 stars but I tweaked the recipe a little. This was a very moist, easy cake to make. Some reviewers suggested you should use instant oats...I used regular oats. Soaking them in the boiling water softened them just fine. While they were soaking, I went ahead and mixed the sugars, butter and eggs. Then after the 10mins, I just added the oats to the sugar mixture and then added the rest of the ingredients (I did add 1 tsp of vanilla). I also added half the chocolate chips in the batter and the other half on top. I baked it in a 9x13 for the same amount of time. I did, however, find the batter a bit runny. So to prevent all the chips from sinking to the bottom, I poured the batter into the pan and sprinkled the remaining chips on top JUST before putting in the oven. I think next time I might increase the cocoa to 2 tbsp. I also used dark chocolate chips. Mmmm good. I will definetly make this again.

One Bowl Chocolate Cake III
This cake was awesome! I too increased the cocoa to 1 cup. I made cupcakes with it and they turned out great. Cook them for 15-20 min.(really depends on your oven and pan you use). This is my new 'go to' cake!!! Thanks!
