Creamy Macaroni and Cheese
Substitute 1 tsp ground mustard for the dijon, and everything else is great. Dinner was delayed because of an interruption, and the sauce thickened up a lot! So, don't worry if it seems soupy at first, it cools to a thicker sauce. The parm added more saltiness than I expected, but that may have been the brand. I suggest tasting while adding small amounts of it.

Hearty Breakfast Muffins
If I could give 2.5, I would. These had a lot of potential. Unfortunately, they come out super soggy and mushy. I felt like it needed more flour going in, but I stuck to the recipe (unlike pretty much all the other reviewers for this recipe.) I would say add at least another cup of flour. I know zucchini and banana breads are moist, but these were so moist that they almost seemed raw. I would try again, but add more flour, and possibly more spices ginger, cinnamon, and some vanilla extract. Also, another reviewer said she used 2-3 cups shredded zucchini as one zucchini's worth. I also have huge garden zucchinis and used 2 cups shredded. I would stick with that, as long as you increase the flour. The flavor combination was nice, we just didn't like the mushy middles.

Stuffed Zucchini
I made this as written, not cooking the meat before it is placed in the zucchini. It turns out similar to meatloaf in texture, but perhaps a bit denser. I used 2 garden zukes, each 8-9 inches long (bigger than your average store-bought zuke.) Using this size, Everyone ate 1/4 of a zuke, or 1/2 of each filled zuke. So, I got about 8 generous servings out of this, and it was the only dinner item, since it contained meat and veggies. It was very good and filling, and a new use of zucchini for me.
