Mango Blueberry Muffins With Coconut Streusel
I had to try this recipe three times before I got it perfect. I recommend making any changes very gradually so you don't end up with two dud batches. The first time I made this recipe I followed the advice of another reviewer to sub milk for buttermilk because I did not have buttermilk on hand. The muffins turned out very flat and bitter because you could still taste the baking powder but I wanted to try again because I LOVE mangoes and blueberries. After 2 mins on google I learned that with baking powder you need an acid not only to get a fluffy outcome but also to neutralize the bitterness of the parking powder. So if you don't have buttermilk, you can google substitutions like one cup of milk with on tablespoon of vinegar, or plain yogurt thinned with milk. The second time around, I used the vinegar and milk and the bitterness was completely gone. However, I followed another reviewers advice and subbed coconut oil instead of butter and my whole batter curdled. I baked it anyway and while delicious, they were very greasy and I tossed them. The third time I followed the recipe EXACTLY AS WRITTEN but I used vinegar and milk and added a little vanilla and cinnamon. They out came out PERFECT!!!!!!! Sooooooo delicious!!!! My coworkers wouldn't stop talking about them (they never tried the duds) I'm making these every mango season along with my mango salsa and mango jam :)

Elegant Turkey Stuffing
Great!! I sub the raisins for dried cranberries. I must say that's if you taste any alcohol you aren't boiling the raisins or cranberries long enough as this process should evaporate all the alcohol. The other half a cup would evaporate during baking. I used the full amount called for with great success. I don't stuff the bird, so I cover the stuffing tightly with foil and bake for 45 mins on 350. Comes out perfect!

Old Fashioned Mac and Cheese
Great recipes. I didn't add pepper because of personal prefrence. l didn't add salt because I thought it would have enough flavor from the cheeses. Next time I will add the salt either when layering like it says or to the pasta water. I was also unsure how to add the velveeta. I think the best option would be to melt it then pour it as needed but because of lack of time I opted to cut it into thin slices and drop it here and there. After baking a mixed it all up and although it was great it looked messy. If you have the time I would suggest the melting then pouring method for presentation purposes. All in all, it was a great recipe that everyone loved and complimented me on.
