The Basics: How to Make Seven-Layer Bars

I added a good handful of dried apricots, chopped up a bit, and some toasted almonds...yummmmmm. Next time I'll try dried cherries. I back off a bit on the amount of choc. chips so don't feel as guilty and they are just as good. I also use a 50/50 mix of butter and coconut oil in place of all butter.

substituting some oatmeal for part of the flour in muffin recipe

I want to add some oatmeal to a recipe for Pumpkin-Cranberry Muffins. Does anyone have any idea what the ratio should be in substituting some oatmeal in a recipe that calls for 1 1/2 C flour? Thanks for any input

Will send this to my friend who is flying in from Palm Springs. She wanted to go to Betelnut and also mentioned Kuletos and The Boulevard. I think $35 would be fine + drinks. Any recommendations for GOOD calamari? Not frozen, deep fried or "calamari steak".

Thanks for the update; it 's been several years since I've eaten @ Beach Chalet or any place else in the city and things do change at restaurants which is why I'm asking for recent suggestions.
P.S. Does anyone have a recommendation for excellent calamari, either fried or sauteed? Not one of those smooshed together "calamari steaks"( I'm talkin' the real thing) and not out of a box and thrown in the deep fryer! Many thanks

We all lived in Marin at one time and have moved away. A a 3 day get together next week is planned (wed-sat) ; Academy of Science, museums etc. Staying in Cow Hollow area, have car, need recommendations for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Previously had a very nice dinner at Dragon Well on Chestnut, one of my friends suggested Betelnut but have seen mixed reviews. Prefer to stay away from downtown, Chinatown, financial areas; spots between Cow Hollow /Polk St and the Beach would be great. $ is an object so would like to keep it moderate or below. We're married, "mature" women so no need for swingin' , singles spots. We all love spicy, Asian, Mexican, Thai or something different that we don't cook at home. Like the Beach Chalet out on the Great Hiway for lunch, the Cliff House has great views but seems overpriced. Maybe something in the Fillmore, Jackson, Laurel Hts, Richmond areas. Also, any cool spot for a late afternoon wine/cocktail & appetizers would be great. Need something yummy to start the day, too. If the weather is nice might want to pick-up a sandwich before the museums and eat in the park rather than drive to lunch.
Love this website. This is my 1st post. Have tried many recipes, many thanks for your suggestions.
