Moist and flavorful cake made with grated carrots, raisins, and walnuts.

Rainbow Citrus Cake

Lemon Pie Bars

Rating: 4.5 stars 866
This is a really easy recipe that my mom made before the lemon bar 'rage' was on! Thick-skinned lemons work the best. I suggest using real butter and eggs, I've tried using eggbeaters--nowhere near as good!

White Almond Wedding Cake

Rating: 4.5 stars 981
A secret ingredient of sour cream makes this cake so moist, dense, and delicious! I use this recipe for my kids' birthdays, but it's a favorite for wedding cakes, too! This recipe can easily be doubled.

Strawberry Cake from Scratch

Rating: 4 stars 1214
A lovely strawberry cake made with strawberry puree and strawberry gelatin.

Strawberry Rhubarb Coffee Cake

Rating: 4.5 stars 136
Strawberries and rhubarb combine to make a sweet, fruity filling in this cake. The crumb topping adds a little crunch; it would probably be good with some nuts sprinkled on top.

Strawberry Rhubarb Custard Pie

Rating: 4.5 stars 212
One of the most delicious and easiest pie recipes I know. I got this wonderful recipe from my mother Pauline, who I believe got it from my Aunt Angela. I love all their pies, but this might be my favorite.

Blueberry Snow

Rating: 4.5 stars 63
This trifle is simple to prepare, but does require 4 hours refrigeration before serving. Can be prepared the night before.

Old-Fashioned Coconut Cream Pie

Rating: 4.5 stars 1891
This delicious coconut cream pie has a homemade coconut custard filling.

Fluffy Cake Doughnuts

Rating: 4 stars 311
This recipe is very quick and easy to make. I have a donut pan, which is like a muffin pan, but has donut shaped holes rather than muffin shaped holes. These donuts are baked not fried, so they don't have so many calories. I mix up either a powdered sugar glaze or a chocolate icing to top these with. They can also be rolled in cinnamon and white sugar, but it doesn't stick very well. My husband likes them just plain. For a chocolate glaze, simply stir 1/2 cup melted chocolate chips into the glaze mixture.

Two Tier Strawberry Pie

Rating: 4.5 stars 149
This pie has a delicious twist. I no longer make regular strawberry pie because this one is so good.
