"Thank you for having your recipe search available. Our tangerine tree has many again this year. I tried the muffins last night. They were wonderful. It did take time to prepare the 1 cup of pieces but was worth it. I did not have yogurrt on hand, used sour creeam instead. I used my stoneware muffin pan greased with solid shortening."

"These were delicious! I didn't have egg substitute, so I just used 1 whole egg. My family loved them!"

"We have a tangerine tree that always gives us WAY TOO MANY tangerines. We can never use/eat/finish/give away all of them. This will be a nice thing to make and give with some tangerines and the recipe next season. Can't wait!"
