Apple Dumplings II
Very Disappointed! The crust of this recipe is not what I was looking for, or IMHO what anyone would want in a good apple dumpling recipe. Wouldn't even make a good pie crust in my opinion. Not flaky all, and not much taste either. I took other reviewer-advice and doubled the crust recipe and had to roll out really thin to get even that to cover 6 large fancy apples. I put this in a 9x13 glass dish, and the sauce amount was fine for the baking, but had NONE to spoon over the top or drizzle with at serving. I didn't care for the cinnamon mixture for the apples either, It wasn't sweet enough, and was almost bitter. We didn't even finish eating these. I've never done that with an apple dessert before, (it's hard to ruin any apple dessert) and I've been baking for a LONG time! I'll keep looking for a more delicate-crust dumpling recipe.

To Die For Blueberry Muffins
I made these for dinner, & followed the recipe ingredients exactly. The only advice I would give is do NOT fill the muffin cups to the top as it advises. I did this and they went over the edges too far. I should have known with the baking powder that they would do that, but wanted to stick with the recipe the first time. I baked them until a toothpick came out clean, pretty close to the prescribed time at 400 degrees, and had no burn at all. They were perfectly browned, looked beautiful! Well, I confess, I did put more blueberries in than what was called for, but does that count? lol. Had 4 adults for dinner, and every one of them commented on how good they were. Next time, I'll fill the cups just 3/4 full, and they should be perfect. note: I thought that the crumble was going to be like a topping on top of the muffins, but it sinks into the muffin and just creates a slightly crisp top. A pleasant surprise there, as I don't like a "crumble topping" on muffins. Oh, I did cut in the diced butter with a pastry cutter rather than just mix with a fork and put the chunky butter/suger mixture on top. I didn't want pools of butter on the muffins, and this worked great. I doubt that it made a difference in taste, so whatever you feel like doing will work. A good recipe - will keep this one! Thanks!

Darra's Famous Tuna Waldorf Salad Sandwich Filling
This is definitely an adult tuna salad sandwich. A real change-up if you want a "kicked up" sandwich. However, if you're going to be within 3' of anyone after eating this sandwich, I would suggest cutting the shallot & curry amount in at least half! All I could taste was the shallot and the curry. Good, but couldn't tell there was any tuna in it. I don't know where others got that this is bland? or that their small children liked it??? Not bad, but not a keeper for me either. Made exactly as directed.
