Raspberry Lemon Muffins
These muffins came out very nice albeit not as sweet as my husband usually likes his desserts. I made a few modification that may have contributed to this: I used 0% Fage Greek yogurt as it was all I had on hand. This yogurt is quite thick, less sweet, and has a sour note. The resulting batter was more like cookie dough than muffin mix. However, to rescue the consistency I mashed fresh whole raspberry (my husband prefers the tie-die effect of the mash over the whole fruit) and incorporated it into the mix. This loosened up the batter and added the fresh fruit element. I liked the flavor of the lemon and did add the extract to really bring out the citrus. All-in-all after baking these muffins, I was happy with the results. Next time I'll either add a bit more sugar if repeating with the Greek yogurt or maybe add a lemon icing to the top.. I used turbinado sugar to sprinkle on top of the batter before baking. It was a nice touch.

Smooth and Creamy Peanut Butter Pie
This pie was surprisingly easy to make and has a scrumptious decadent peanut butter flavor. My husband adores it. The only change I made was hand-whipping Bird's Dream Topping instead of using Cool Whip as you cannot get Cool Whip in UK grocery stores. I would make this pie again and again. This recipe will become a dessert staple.

Slow Cooker Sweet and Sour Chicken
My husband loved this dish (he's a fan of sweet foods)! I was sure to buy an original recipe BBQ sauce (nothing with extra sweetness like honey varieties) and served it over plain steamed rice. I particularly liked the color of the dish - a nice, rich, and warm. I'll definitely make this again as it was a big hit in our house.
