Bran Flax Muffins
This is a great recipe! Most baked goods containing flaxseed or oat bran that I've tried tasted gross but these little muffins are delicious. I followed the recipe to the letter with the exception of substituting 2 tbsp of veg oil for applesauce. Also the recipe says it makes 15 muffins but my batch made won't hear me complain about that though!

Stacey's Fabulous Purple Potato Gratin
This was a great recipe, but I made some modifications. First, I didn't have any bacon so I left that out and sauteed 2 leeks and a shallot in a combo of butter and olive oil. Then I sliced a peeled apple very thinly and threw that in with the leeks and shallot. Next I used 6 purple potatoes sliced them really thin and coated them with flour. Then I threw them in with the leek/shallots/apples. I don't know if I used too much flour or what, but the mixture was still very thick even after adding a half cup of milk, I ended up using about a cup and a quarter of milk. Then I added cheddar cheese mixed it up really well, put it in a casserole dish, topped with breadcrumbs and baked at 400 for about 35 mins. MMMM Good! Thanks for the recipe Stacey!
