Classic Bran Muffins
Good recipe. I did make a few changes but it's the original, basic recipe that still sets the standard. In case it's helpful to someone, I tweaked things based on what I had in my pantry. Replaced the regular flour with light buckwheat flour, reduced the amount of sugar to half and used xylitol instead, plus some molasses. Extra raisins. Oh, and yogurt instead of buttermilk. A bit of cinnamon and real vanilla bean powder. Yeah, lots of tweaking but it came out great.

Basic Crepes
Well, my batter was too thick so I had to add quite a bit more liquid. I like a thin crepes and the batter was simply too thick as directed. Otherwise, the recipe was quite fine.

Microwave Mochi
Great! I've wanted to make a sugar-free version of this for myself for ages and this finally gave me the confidence to do it. I used xylitol (a natural sugar alternative that's low glycemic) in place of the sugar and it worked really well. Next time, I'll use a tiny bit less since than the recipe calls for since I prefer it less sweet.
