This recipe is rated 4 stars as is. If you make the changes I did, then I would rate it a 5 star. Instead of vanilla, I added 1 tsp of almond extract. I used dried cranberries, and increased it to 1 cup. I added about 2 tsp of orange zest. The muffins were very dry, so next time I'll add 2 tbsp to 1/4 cup milk to the batter. My changes make them awesome! NOTE: I have to update my comments. I made these again with fresh chopped cranberries and they were by far much better than with dried cranberries. Also, add just 1/2 tsp almond extract, a whole tsp is a bit much. And I will add even more orange zest the next time. I also recommend just cutting the cranberries in half and not chop them. This way you get the nice tart taste in each bite. But, use more cranberries, I used 1 cup and will increase that 1 1/2 cups the next time as well.
