    Fabulous Recipe!!! This is a fool proof recipe, which for me was a good thing!! By mistake, I added 1/2 lb.of melted butter instead of 1/2 a cup, and over a cup of O.J., I only had to bake them longer and they still turned out great...verry moist. I also added 1 cup or dried cranberries, and didn't add the nuts. This is a very versatile and forgiving recipe that you can make many variations with and it will still turn out great!! Thank you!!  -  11 Nov 2001  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    The muffins were excellent if you like your muffins less sweet. I added about a cup of fresh chopped cranberries which went very nicely with the orange. Be warned that they are not nearly as sweet as traditional muffins so kids may not like them as much.  -  03 Jan 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This muffin is absolutely delicious! I used light brown sugar instead of white sugar and they came out great! Thanks Terry!  -  31 May 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
