Classic Strawberry Shortcakes
Since I am at a higher altitude, I used 2/3 cup milk and 2 tablespoons sugar, baked at 425 F (ignore higher temp and cook time on box as it will burn bottoms too fast) and only baked for 7-9 minutes. Oh and I added dashes of course-grained sugar (turbino) to tops of dough before baking and like others suggested, drizzled liquid from bottom of strawberry bowl on top before serving. Yum!

Ultimate Chocolate Pudding
This was decadent. My husband said "it was very rich and I loved how chocolately it was". A few changes/tips: it took double-triple the time to thicken than listed, I added some Ghirardelli semi-sweet chocolate chips with the butter step, I used Hershey's cocoa (not sure if Dutch processed), and you don't have to put it in one bowl, just straight into individual cups is fine. Add a dollop of homemade whipped cream to the top and it's great!

Great for Thanksgiving. We didn't have orange juice straight so we used an orange juice mixture (RW Knudson Simply Nutritious Morning Blend) for some added natural sweetness and other flavors. This was easy and tasty!

Cottage Cheese Potato Bake
I had 1/2 a container cottage cheese left over so thought I'd give this a try. It was yummy! I doubled the corn flakes and did not crumble them, and also added a little mozzarella to the cheddar since I needed to use that up anyway. Next time I will cook the potatoes a little longer, but otherwise, it was good!

Cream Cheese Swirl Brownies
Try it with dark-chocolate BC mix- so good!
I read the reviews and put in 5 oz cream cheese instead of 4 oz. so there was enough to really see. It looked and tasted great.

Crème Brûlée Cheesecake Bars
These are good! 3 quick comments/words of advice: 1.) In the past I haven’t liked the taste of baked goods made with cooking spray on the pan, so instead I used regular Crisco on the pans and it worked just great. 2.) Cream cheese comes in 8 oz containers so I used two to make 16 oz (very creamy – yum!). 3.) After reading the reviews of “the entire crust mixture is a little too much”, etc… I actually put some of the dough into a smaller, second pan so that it could be a thinner layer. No complaints about the bottom layer being too thick now! Plus, there is more to share. :)

Classic Bisquick™ Peach Cobbler
Easy and tasty! Apparently our milk had turned (dangit) so we used coconut milk instead and it was great! We also added a second can of peaches since our can size was different than what the recipe called for- and it turned out yummy.

Quick and easy. We had 2 pears that were really ripe and some frozen blueberries so I doubled this recipe and it worked out fine. My husband says the flavor was "good" and "not overpowering; just right". I agree! I am not so sure about the "buttery crunch" description but we liked it at our home and plan to make it again some day!
Tip/FYI: in the future, when doubling this recipe, you might not want to exactly double the blueberries (maybe do 3/4 a cup?), since they did take over the pears a little...

Whole-Grain Strawberry Pancakes
Delicious; no need for syrup- it is plenty sweet.
Any kind of yogurt will do- I used Tillamook (no hormones) and it was great without having fresh strawberries on hand. My husband loves anything whole-wheat and on the healthier side, so these were a big hit. I used Arrowhead Mills whole wheat flour and it tasted great... yum!

Spiced White Chocolate-Nectarine Trifles
VERY easy and quick to make; this came out super sweet (I love sweets typically but just a little too much for me- my boyfriend loved it though- go figure!). The nectarines helped even out the whipped topping and pudding mix. I didn't use all of the spiced pudding, did add the shaved white chocolate pices to the top, and it worked.
