Mrs. Sigg's Peanut Butter Cookies
Just made these and I thought they were okay. I followed the recipe except I used all butter since I did not have shortening. I also chilled the dough for an hour. I found that baking them 7.5 minutes made a cookie that was not overly crisp, and I like crisp cookies. They don't have a strong enough PB taste for me. I think the suggestions of adding another half cup of PB is a good one and I will try that next time. I'm sure every one of these cookies will be eaten.

To Die For Blueberry Muffins
I had a bunch of fresh blueberries, so I went hunting for a great muffin recipe and found this one. I made a dozen last night and woke up this morning looking forward to a couple To Die For Muffins. Got my coffee ready, spread out the Sunday newspaper and put a couple muffins on a plate, anticipating bliss. I was totally disappointed. If these muffins did not have the crumb topping, they would have no taste at all. I followed the recipe exactly. I just went back to read the reviews to see what all the fuss is about and now I understand why people have extensively doctored up this recipe. It desperately needs some flavor, whether that be vanilla, more sugar or additional fruit. Instead of playing around with this recipe, just look for another one that works. What a waste of some nice blueberries.

Restaurant Style Beef and Broccoli
I made this following the directions exactly, except for the ginger because I didn't have any. It was very good. I have a few tips: unless you are using a very tender cut of beef, be sure to slice it very thin and do not overcook or it will get tough. I cooked the beef in two batches so it would fry and not stew or boil. That worked well. This recipe makes too much marinade. Don't add all of it to the pan. Leave about one fifth of it out. One other thing, the portion sizes are way too small. I made enough for six and it fed two of us, with one small serving leftover. I am not a big eater. My dinner partner is a big eater, but certainly would not normally eat four servings at once. I'd say the recipe for four actually feeds two if they don't eat a lot. Anyway, I'd make it again.
