    Redneck Epicurean's Note:

    I love oranges, orange juice, orange oil (great for polishing furniture!) and just the smell. It always puts me in a fall, Christmas mood. I experienced the most wonderful thing this year at Christmas - REAL LIVE FLORIDA ORANGES! My aunt's sister, Connie, lives in FLA and has an orange tree. They are so different from the "brought ons" (what my dad calls things like the crunchy tomatoes in December) that the grocery store has. Sometimes around here, though, we get good home-grown stuff. Anyway, I still have about three left and I am going to absolutely cherish every one down to the last peel, which I'll probably freeze for later use. (Thanks for the tip in the frugal thread!) These muffins are great and really need no butter or jam, just a great cup of hot tea.

      These are very good muffins, excellent with soup or for breakfast. I used sugar, but would have no problem using Splenda as I often do. These have almost a cake like consistancy, but the flavor is very refreshing. Thanks, Carole in Orlando

      These were very good. As a diabetic, I appreciate people posting recipes using Splenda. I made these in memory of Redneck Epicurian (Amy), who always had a cheery word for everyone!

      This was just okay. The flavour was very mild, so if I made it again, I'd increase the zest and maybe add a bit or orange flavouring. Maybe my juice wasn't really strong. I also found them to be quite heavy. I was surprised as it has enough baking powder in it. Maybe it's just one of those things. Some days it works, some days it doesn't.
