Coconut Shrimp I
UPDATE: Made again with sweetened coconut and I felt it made a HUGE difference. So much yummier. Definitely use sweetened coconut if you want to replicate the coconut shrimp served in restaurants. ***** I made the recipe pretty much as written, and my husband and I were both, just, well, OK with it. They were good, not great. I did use unsweetened coconut, I wonder if that is where the difference was (the recipe doesn't specify and I used what was open in my pantry). I wonder if a little sugar added would have made a difference, to get a bit of carmelization that might have otherwise happened.... For dipping sauce, I liked the orange marmalade concoction idea but alas, we don't have any. So I improvised and used up a ton of leftover Chinese food sauce packets, made a sauce with a ratio of 8 packets duck sauce, 2 packets mustard, and 1 packet soy and it was really really yummy!!

Spicy Refrigerator Dill Pickles
I made a couple tweaks (added onion chunks and sliced jalapeno peppers, and some fresh parsley & thyme) but these are really, really good!!! I only made these because I was gifted with 6 cukes from a neighbor's garden, and we don't really eat them. Now I'm considering growing cukes next year just to make more of these!

Blueberry Cream Muffins
Pretty good! Not the best muffins I've ever had but definitely satisfactory. I made them with plain full-fat yogurt instead of the sour cream, which perhaps made a bit of difference but I find that yogurt subs for sour cream in recipes pretty well. I think they just needed something, maybe a little cinnamon or brown sugar? Regardless, they fit the bill for using up both some blueberries and yogurt that had hung out in my fridge a bit too long for fresh eating.
