Easy Chicken Posole
This was easy and delicious. I hand-shredded a whole rotisserie chicken, and skipped the chicken cooking part. This developed rich delicious flavor in under an hour. I put more chili powder and added it to the onions as they cooked in EVOO. I like spice, so I added some crushed red pepper flakes.

Lemon Cupcakes
This will be my go-to for lemon cupcakes. I got about 30 from this recipe. I did not find them dense at all. When I use the creaming method - as this recipe requires, make sure that the butter and eggs are at room temp. Cream the butter and sugar together for 2 - 3 minutes, and do fully incorporate one egg at a time. This is the stage where we get all the air in to the batter. Work quickly with the flour, milk, and lemon juice additions, stirring as little as possible to thoroughly combine. Over mixing at this point activates the gluten in the flour and makes denser cake. I added two tablespoons of good lemon extract. I removed a bit of each cupcake from the center with an apple corer, and filled them with lemon curd. I topped them with Italian Meringue frosting, and served them as Lemon Meringue Cupcakes - reminiscent of the Lemon Meringue Pie I grew up on. yum.

Creamy Blueberry Pie
Yum yum gimme some! This is one of those pies that evereybody creeps into the kitchen for "just a sliver" again and again. I liked the "eggy" quality that some reviwers mentioned - and accented it by adding freshly grated nutmeg and lemon zest to the sour cream misture, and some cinnamon to the struesel topping.
