Apple Squares
These are fantastic! I made the following changes to mine: Increased the chopped apples to 1 cup, reduced the white sugar to 1/4 cup, added 1/4 tsp almond extract, and added a handful of chopped dates that I had left over from another recipe. I baked these in an 8x8 pan for 30 minutes, and they turned out moist and chewy. YUM! Next time I might try a different using pecans as the nut or adding raisins.

Quick Black Beans and Rice
Turned out great! I cooked it a little differently. I cooked Basmati rice in broth until just slighly undercooked. Separately, in a skillet I cooked onion and green pepper in oil, added chopped garlic, a can of diced fire roasted tomatoes, a can of black beans, and oregano. I let that simmer for a few minutes, then added the rice, turned the heat off and placed a lid on it. I let it sit for 5 minutes, just long enough for the rice to finish cooking while sitting there.

To Die For Blueberry Muffins
I made these muffins with two intentional changes and one unintentional one. I added the zest of one orange to brighten up and enhance the blueberry flavor. For the milk, I wanted to use buttermilk instead of regular but didn't have any on hand, so I made some using 1 Tbsp vinegar, 1/3 cup sour cream, and 2/3 cup milk. I only planned on using 1//3 cup of it like the recipe states, but once the batter was mixed up it was SO thick - more like cookie dough - that I thought something was wrong. So instead of only adding 1/3 cup milk I used the whole cup. They turned out great, but after reading another review about how this batter is supposed to be thicker, I will try again following the recipe. Either way, these are GREAT muffins!
