Sour Cream Blueberry Coffee Cake
This was amazing! I use blueberries I had just picked. Unfortunately, I didn't have all the ingredients, so I had to substitute. I used greek yogurt instead of sour cream. I only had one sick of butter, so I added some shortening and applesauce. I also used half whole wheat flour and reduced the sugar. I couldn't really spread the batter over the top, but it didn't matter. It baked up beautifully, but did take almost an hour.

Chicken and Broccoli Braid
This was good. I made a few changes, following some of the reviews. I'm sensitive to raw onion, so I sauteed it in a bit of olive oil along with the garlic. I used a small amount of chopped roasted red pepper. I used less than a tsp of dill. I used low-fat mayo and grilled chicken. I also used a colby jack mix of cheese. It was yummy! I think I had more broccoli than it called for, but I liked it that way. I slightly steamed the broccoli and let it cool first before putting it in the mix .

Ninety Minute Cinnamon Rolls
I'm currently making these rolls for the second time. They are great. I made them in a 9x13 pan this time. Last time I used an 11" pan, which was not big enough. I think you could roll the dough out a bit larger than 9 x 12. Also, I used butter, not margarine. I did NOT use a full 1/2 cup of butter for the filling. I had to use extra flour since it was quite humid here. I used the cream cheese frosting suggested by another reviewer. Perfect. They are delicious!
