To Die For Blueberry Muffins
I was looking for an easy recipe to use up some less than great blueberries & I HIT THE JACKPOT! I had all the ingredients on hand and this was quick, easy & SO TASTY :) I'm a lemon & blueberry fan so I added 1/4 tsp lemon extract to a double recipe of batter. I was a little concerned bc the batter was so thick, but stayed true to the recipe and didn't overmix. I've made a lot of muffins in my day, BUT these are the BEST!! They rose perfectly with the streusel topping (a personal fave) these muffins will be my "go to" recipe in a pinch. Thanks for sharing :)

Elbows with Cauliflower and Brussels Sprouts
I sauteed 1 lb ground turkey & garlic, 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes and added it to this recipe. No elbow pasta, so I used Penne other than those changes I followed the the recipe as written. Great flavor and we loved the textures. I'm going to try it with rice g/f pasta this weekend

I was searching for a recipe to help use up some Orzo, it was tasty & easy + the perfect side for Chicken Picatta w/ Mushrooms from this site. Green salad & garlic bread made for a great meal. Thanks!
