for me it's chopped apricots and walnuts, too.......esp. the California ones........tangy..........finally made the KZ's understand the term tangy........you just bite down and make a grimace.....then they know you want tangy and not sweet.....looked the word up in the dictionary.......not there...........that's okay we undertand each other quite well by now........they think I'm funny and I think that they are understanding of my lack of Russian.... their faces actually light up when I come in so I guess I'm making some headway in Kazak-usa realations.........I've tried but the brain cells are just not there anymore...........when you've got two different words for the object of the predicate "on the table" and the subject "the table is brown"......I just gave up........just not enough brain cells to absorb it all at my age..........Russian is difficult........just ask Charlie D....who I think has done a wonderful job of learning English...........and I commend you, my friend..........

Blueberries! Nothing beats that for me and it has the highest antioxidant of all the fruits.

My Blueberry Oatmeal muffins are my favorite right now. I replace the oil with applesauce, making them super moist but much lower in fat/calories!

Redkitty: I love muffins and cookies, but need to avoid fats. Could you please give me your recipe? Or tell me how much applesauce for each cup of oil/butter? TIA for your advice.

do you use fresh cherries, Tattrat? The walnuts here are wonderful.......will have to sift thru them for hard pieces of the shell sticking to the walnut........small blip to get great tasting walnuts..forget pecans.......they are not happening here unless you drag them in with your luggage........which I don't.......

double chocolate or on the more healthy front - dried fruit and mixed spice.

I love cherries. And they are in season here at the moment so cherry muffins it is.

That replacing oil with apple sauce is a good idea. Or any other fruit sauce for that matter. So when there is no butter in the house I might still be able to make muffins.
