Raspberry Lemon Muffins
I made these with very finely chopped fresh strawberries and they were delicious! I think these are our new favorite muffins in our household. I did use half whole-wheat and half regular all-purpose flour to make them a touch healthier. I also followed some others' suggestion and used 3 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice. It provided just enough zip. Thanks for the great recipe!

Old Fashioned Strawberry Pie
I thought this pie was absolutely wonderful, as did everyone who tried it. I wanted a pie akin to a traditional apple pie, but with strawberries and this hit the spot. Minor changes: I used 1 cup sugar with fresh, in-season berries, 1/4 tsp cinnamon, and added 2 tablespoons cornstarch for a firmer consistency. Delicious!

Thai Peanut Chicken
I thought this was wonderful, as did my husband and 17 year-old stepson. I did make several changes, on the suggestions of others and based on personal preference. I doubled the sauce and next time I will probably triple it. I strongly recommend not skipping or lessening the fresh ginger as I believe it adds to the complexity of this dish very nicely. I used 4-5 fresh cayenne peppers in place of the powdered variety. I also skipped the green onion all together as I don't care for their consistency and find they generally add little flavor. I was worried the peanut butter would be overwhelming but I thought it was just the perfect amount (I doubled it as mentioned earlier, along with the other wet ingredients). Lastly, I lessened the garlic to 2 tbsp. With these changes, I give this one a five. It was delicious.
