Orange Vinaigrette Dressing
I loved this dressing! Full of fresh, mildly sweet taste, just the right amount of everything. Yes, it is thin, but why is that a problem? I prefer thinner dressings, they combine with greens better. I didn't have 4 hours for it to sit, used it right after I made it, and it was very delicious. Definitely going to be a staple dressing in our house.

Chef John's Buttermilk Biscuits
I first tried this recipe about 3-4 months ago, and I can't even count how many times I have already made them since then. Followed the recipe exactly, nothing needs to be changed. Flaky, soft and moist inside, crispy outside. Love the fact you can make it when you have time, freeze them, and bake in the mornings as many as you need, serving them hot and fresh. Thank you, reviewers, who gave this idea! My husband can eat them every morning and not get tired :) Now I always double the portion, so I don't need to make them every week, but only every other :)

Moist Chocolate Muffins
Made it today for the first time and it was AMAZING! The only reason I gave it 4 stars - I made some changes to make this recipe a little bit healthier. I substituted 1 cup of regular flour with 1/2 cup of whole wheat and 1/2 of oatmeal flour; instead of 1/2 cup oil I added about 1/4 cup sour cream+30 ml cognac+2 tbsp oil. Next time I might use applesauce instead of 1/2 oil, just didn't have any on hand this time. Some people added espresso to enrich the flavor, I added cognac ;) Also I will cut sugar to 2/3 of a cup, 1 cup made my muffins too sweet.
