Nana Dot's Irish Soda Bread
i replaced milk + vinegar with same amount of fat-free plain yogurt (plus a tiny spoonful more 'cos i think the dough was too dry to stick together completely), and i had made them into 8 small loaves instead of 2 big ones, so i know my version is not the genuine irish soda bread. but it still turned out to be tasty. overall, this recipe is simple, easy, and quick. really worth a try!

Fudgy Chocolate Chip Muffins
can i rate it with 10 stars? it's sssssssoooooooooooo good! i used plain yogurt instead of applesauce, omitted the cinnamon, used only white sugar 3/4 cup total, extra dark cocoa powder up to 1/3 cup, and added 1/2 tsp baking powder and a pinch of salt. the batter was a bit dry (probably 'cos i put in more cocoa powder than what the recipe called for), hence i added 1 more tbsp of yogurt. they did rise very nicely. they looked professional, they tasted professional... just that the whole house's still smelling chocolatey after several hours... haha!!

Strawberry Lemon Muffins
i chose this recipe 'cos i wanted to use up my strawberries in the fridge, but not enough for them to take the leading role... not satisfactory... the muffins did rise nicely, but the taste was sssoooo bland -- i had already put in more than enough lemon juice and zest, yet i could not taste them... luckily i had decided to put in some poppy seeds, and also some more zest on top before baking, which had helped to remind me that, "oh well, this is a lemon muffin..." ** UPDATE ** i am giving this 1 more star 12 hours later. i was disappointed last night and i threw the rest into the fridge. this morning i microwaved one for breakfast -- it's moist, and it has a better lemon flavor now (still can't taste the strawberries though)
