Poppy Seed Muffins
The first time I baked these, I thought the amount of baking powder was insufficient (half of required) but made them as stated anyway. As I thought, the muffins were too dense. The second time around I increased to one tablespoon, decreased sugar to 2 cups and left out 1 tablespoon oil (and increased almond extract to 1 T--I like a lot of almond flavor, but this may be too much for some). The results with these changes were great; they were much lighter in texture. I also substituted 1 cup cake flour for 1 cup AP flour, or one could just use all pastry flour.

Beth's Spicy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies
Great recipe, but not too far from the standard O.R. cookie recipe. Tried to make this a bit lower cal. by substitutine 1/2 c. Splenda for the white sugar and used only 3/4 c. Smart Balance margarine for the butter. Also added 1 T cinnamon and 1/2 t. nutmeg. Turns out a bit softer but still really good and just a little healtier.
