Bran Muffins III
Great recipe. I did substitute Splenda for most of the sugar, and used all whole wheat flour instead of any white flour. I also added blueberries to some of the muffins and those were good too. This is a good healthy muffin for breakfast.

Tea Cakes III
I loved these cookies, but had to use almonds instead of pecans (food allergies!). The aren't too sweet so my kids weren't crazy about them, but my husband and I really enjoyed them. I did roll them smaller than suggested.
