By: Barb Dahl



¼ C sugar

1 tsp Cinnamon

½ tsp salt

4 oz cream cheese

1 large egg

¾ C brown sugar

¼ C flour

1 tsp vanilla


¼ C flour

¼ C sugar

5 graham crackers

3 Tbsp butter



Combine first 4 ingredients cut in butter until pea size lumps form. Add water until evenly moist, press into a ball & refrigerate 1 hour. Roll out in between wax paper, put into 9 inch deep dish pan, pinch sides & trim excess. NOTE: crust will be thick (about ¼ in or so.)


Place washed berries into pie crust then make filling. Combine all ingredients & stir until smooth & pour over berries.


Combine all ingredients until crumbly & put on top of pie.


Bake pie at 450 for 10 min. Take pie out of oven & reduce heat to 350. Cover pie crust with crust protector or tin foil. Bake at 350 for another 35-40 min. Remove from oven & let cool before serving.

Potato Tomato Zucchini Casserole

By: Jennie Jussaume

In greased casserole dish, place one layer sliced and peeled raw potato, one layer onion, one layer sliced unpeeled zucchini squash and one layer fresh tomatoes ~sprinkling each layer with salt and pepper. Bake uncovered for 1 ½ hours at 350 degrees or until tender. If ingredients are dry when halfway done, add ½ cup of water. Halfway through, sprinkle top with Parmesan cheese.

**I personally don’t like to overcook the tomatoes, so instead of putting them on at the beginning, I add them halfway through, and then sprinkle the top with Parmesan cheese. (I’ve also done this casserole with bread crumbs as well.)
