Rhubarb and Strawberry Pie
I never made a strawberry/rhubarb pie before. I picked fresh fruit this week, checked out recipes from Joy of Cooking, Better Crocker Cook Book, friends, etc. and decided on Terri's - an excellent choice. I followed her recipe exactly, using 3 cups strawberries and 3 cups rhubarb (I think that is how the weight translated). I followed another reader's suggestion to let the pie sit in the cooling oven for 20 mins after baking time elapsed, then I set the pie on the counter until the next morning before cutting. Thank you, Terri. This is a wonderful old fashioned recipe I will keep and share. See photos (my crust burned a little b/c my turntable stopped turning!). Note: An oven temp might read 400 degrees, but in actuality it might be 360. Invest in an oven thermometer.

Cathy's Banana Bread
I had three sad looking bananas on my kitchen counter and tried Cathy's recipe. I didnt have sour cream, so I substituted vanilla yogurt. Out of the oven, the loaves looked so delicious, I ate two pieces. I am hooked. I rate this moist fluffy bread 5 stars. As with any bread recipe be careful not to overmix - overmixing makes the bread tough. Also, check your oven for correct inside temperature; I discovered (after a few failures with a new oven) that the digital temperature reading displayed 350 degrees, but inside the oven had only heated to 310 degrees - a sure way to ruin any recipe. Thank you, Cathy.

Black Magic Cake
I made the Black Magic Cake last night and was happy with the results. Now, for the bakers who posted & had miserable results with "raw" batter, impossibly stuck cake bottoms - there is nothing more frustrating than following a new recipe exactly and having it NOT turn out! Two suggestions: 1) coat pans with flour/grease AND cover bottom of pans with good ol' wax paper to eliminate sticking. 2) For the batter that never bakes (raw), the culprit is your oven temperature. The oven temp. display might read "350 degrees", but inside the oven might only be 300 degrees (my case). Even though my oven is new, I bought an inside oven thermometer - for inside temp to be at 350, I must set the outside display at 375. . . I do hope this helps. Keep Baking!
