This recipe came from my grandmother. As children, my sister and I remember going to Pennsylvania for blueberry picking. Mother taught us to pick only perfect berries, and those gems went into this wonderful recipe.

This dessert makes a cool and delicious treat on a warm summer day. I bake a tender crust from a cake mix, then layer it with a cream cheese blend, chocolate pudding and whipped topping.—Pam Reddell, Linden, Wisconsin
I found this recipe in a cookbook and made some changes to it. My husband likes to have it for his birthday cake. We live with my husband's family on a 27,000-acre ranch in the mountains and raise cattle, grain and hay.
"My three girls love these moist, nut-topped cupcakes even without frosting," remarks Debra Forshee from Stockton, Kansas. "They're a great way to use up zucchini, and they freeze well for a quick snack."
A real crowd-pleaser, this tender snack-like cake is chock-full of rhubarb and sprinkled with a sweet cinnamon-sugar topping. Everyone will be asking for the recipe…or seconds! —Maryls Haber, White, South Dakota
Baking is like therapy to me! Whenever I feel down or stressed, I know I can go into the kitchen and whip up a batch of these delicious cupcakes, which I created. I share my baked items with my family and friends. Sometimes I crumble a few slices of bacon and sprinkle over top of freshly iced cupcakes. This delicious combination tastes like Sunday Brunch in cupcake form. —Jenny Weaver, Glendale, Arizona
This three-layer orange cake is pretty enough for company, but it's so simple to fix that you'll find yourself making it all the time. A boxed mix keeps it convenient while the pineapple-coconut filling makes it a crowd-pleaser.
