Strawberry Oat Muffins

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2007
This was definitely a keeper - but I DID make some changes: As suggested by others, I added some corn starch. I then doubled the baking soda. I used a white/whole wheat blend (altho next time I may go all whole wheat. I used vanilla soy milk with a tbls. of cider vinegar instead of buttermilk, which I seldom have on hand. Because of that, I did not add vanilla. I did, however, add a lot (how much?) cinnamon and nutmeg. Also added coarsely chopped pecans and tried go-go berries instead of raisins or craisins. Finally, I added an equal amt of maple syrup instead of sugar. These came out a tad too sweet for me, but hubby loved them. I used just-bought fresh strawberries and they were not at all mushy. The consistency was perfect, the tops were rounded. Next time I will use whole grain flour, apple sauce or bananas instead of oil, and I will mix/match nuts & dried fruit. But definitely a keeper. Thank you!

International Beef Stew

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2001
I tried this recipe for company - 4 adults and 2 children. The children ate but were a bit slow with praise. The adults loved it. Only problem with this is that there's WAY too much rosemary. Also, there must be a misprint, because there's NO WAY you can make this with 8 cups of water. My Dutch oven only allowed me to put in 3 and that was more than enough. To compensate for the overwhelming flavor of rosemary - because that's all we could taste - we added more crushed tomatoes and beef broth. Next time I made it I will use only a taste of rosemary. But it was simple and very flavorful. Thanks.
