"Do you ever buy too much of fresh strawberries, blueberries, or raspberries in the summer simply because they look so rich and sweet? Me too! So I invented this concoction to avoid the tragedy of having to throw out rotten, wasted berries! Perfect for large gatherings, picnics (bring wet-naps/wipes, trust me) or appetizer-type parties! Very simple to make! Everyone loved it the first time I made it. You can also substitute blackberries, banana slices, or an appropriate fruit of your choice. Careful with the blueberries though, they may stain!" — by JAYMOOSE

"This is a favorite at potlucks and barbeques! I've often wondered if I get invited for my company or my Cola Beans! I've tried several different brands of colas, but have found that the leading brand in the red can works best. This recipe can also be cooked in a conventional oven instead of a slow cooker." — by OHHCANDY

"This cake tastes like no other coconut cake - moist beyond belief with the coconut flavor perfuming every bite. Your house will smell divine while this is baking. I made this for my French boss who didn't believe that good baking could come from cake mixes. Voila! He's a convert. What you don't eat as a dessert tastes fabulous the morning after with coffee." — by Simply American
