To Die For Blueberry Muffins
These blueberry muffins were a big hit with my family! They were delicious! After reading many reviews I decided to combine some of the reviewer's tips. I did used canned blueberries. I drained the blueberries and then placed the berries on top of layers of paper towels (very gently) to dry them off as well as I could. I very carefully folded in the blueberries and did not over stir the mix so as to not break the blueberries when stirring. I just stirred it enough to break it down a bit and there were a few little bumps left like another reviewer stated. With regard to the muffin topping, I substituted brown sugar for the white sugar topping and did only use 2 tablespoons of ROOM TEMPERATURE BUTTER. This was a good idea because my muffins did not sink. I'm a big lover of vanilla extract but did not use it nor did I feel like it was missing. I made the muffins using a regular size cupcake pan and had to reduce the baking time. Depending on your oven 12-15 minutes instead of 20 minutes. I can't wait to make these muffins again! Thanks for the recipe!

Beef or Chicken Marinade
Wow! This marinade was great! I loved the taste and my family liked it so much they immediately asked when we could eat it again! I highly recommend this marinade as it gives chicken a somewhat tangy and delectable flavor!

Decorator Frosting
My search for an easy and no-fail frosting for my sugar cut-out cookies has just ended! I have tried many frosting recipes for my cut out cookies but have never really been quite satisfied with the outcome of the recipes. This was a great frosting recipe. I highly recommend this recipe for your cut-out cookies. The frosting hardens to a smooth sheen and if you add food coloring then it looks really professional. On a personal note I did not add the vanilla flavoring since I did not want to compete with the flavor of the sugar cookie. I did end up following the suggestion of another reviewer and used cream and milk combined. You will need more than two tablespoons of milk and/or cream as it was not enough.
