I had every intention of making Miss Alix Cranberry Applesauce Muffins exactly as written.  But somehow, between than long journey from my laptop to the kitchen (like 3 steps), things began to change.  You all know EXACTLY what I mean ... the infamous changing of the recipe. So as I sit here… MORE

About this Cook
I'd rather make it than buy it. Natural, seasonal, and as organic as possible. Don't get me wrong - I'm only human (grin) - but I try.
My favorite things to cook
Copycat & cloned recipes, Mexican, Italian
My favorite family cooking traditions
I'm trying to stop old post WWI & WWII traditions and go back to pre-letsjustbuyitofftheshelf cooking.
My cooking triumphs
Giving up overly processed and prepacked foods (without killing my family). Learning how to actually bake and make those things I used to just buy off a shelf.
My cooking tragedies
lol - too many to name. Beans and I still go 'round and 'round.

Chinese Restaurant Style Hot Mustard
Wonderful! It was just hubby and I so I just spooned about a tablespoon of ground mustard into bowl and then whisked in water until it reached the right consistency. Husband went absolutely nuts over this stuff. Thank you SO much for recipe!

Jennah's Famous Peanut Butter Blossoms
Three (3) times I looked at this recipe ... Three times! Thinking to myself "Bisquick? Bisquick? Nooooooo way". And three times I came back, finally deciding oh what the heck - I'll give it a try. This was the EASIEST QUICKEST TASTIEST blossom recipe I've ever tried. No fuss - no frills - melt in your mouth delicious. I'm SO glad I came to my senses. Batter was a bit loose when I first made it - ended up throwing in maybe another quarter cup of baking mix (used the homemade stuff from AR recipe here), then let it sit in fridge for oh - maybe ten minutes. Eight minutes of baking was spot on (although I did leave them sit on the cookie sheet after pressing in the chocolate kiss while I prepared the next pan). So far I've already gotten 30 cookies ... will probably get another 10 out of them. Thank you SO much for recipe!

Excellent. I added a tsp of cinnamon and a tsp of baking powder after reading how heavy it was. Turned out perfect! Thanks so much for recipe :)
