I have an electric stove in my apartment so for awhile I would burn the oil in the pan before I even started cooking something because I wasn't use to the pan heating up so fast.

Grilled Shrimp Scampi
I didn't use this as a marinade since I didn't have enough time. So I just melted 1 Tbls. of unsalted butter with 1 Tbls. and once the butter was melted I added the uncooked shrimp to the pan and poured the marinade over the shrimp. I cooked the shrimp for approx. 5 minutes (until they were completely pink). I used the marinade as a sauce and served it over whole grain linguine. It was AMAZING!!!

Health Nut Blueberry Muffins
I love this recipe! They are so good and perfect for the morging! I don't have to feel bad about eating them either because they are pretty healthy. I did make modifactions that Chickadee suggested. Used 1 1/2 cup whole wheat flour (instead of using white flour and wheat flour), I used 1% milk with 1 Tblsp lemon juice (instead of buttermilk). First add 1 Tblsp lemon juice to measuring cup then fill the rest of the cup with milk. I also added 1 Tblsp applesauce (intead of oil) but next time I'm going to try 2 Tblsp applesauce to add more moisture. I also added rasberries as suggested, and it was amazing!!! I will be making these often!
