"The first person I served this for didn't like peach cobbler (unknown to me). He really enjoyed it. I just made it because it sounded yummy and I was dieting. No one will ever guess it's 'lighter' than any other cobbler. I hope you like it. Oh! and it's quick and easy." — by AMERICAN GIRL

"Although you'll have to pit the cherries for this one, the fabulous results will make it worth your effort. Sugar, flour, butter and cherries are stirred together and poured into a pie shell. Then on goes the lattice top and in goes the pie into the oven." — by Carol

"Ana and Lydia's cannoli, recipe invented on July 31st, 2005. I spent a lot of time looking for a good recipe for cannoli shells and filling. Since no two were alike, and since instructions were a bit sketchy, I worked with a friend to come up with a good recipe, including some tips that we came up with along the way. Special equipment is needed such as cannoli tubes, a pasta machine and a pastry bag to help make these cannoli come out just like the ones at Italian restaurants and bakeries. Start with 1/2 cup of confectioners' sugar, and then add more to taste." — by Lydia Nacawa

"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
