I like your view. My research has shown your ideas to be true, however I have also read the opposite from other posts like this one. Do you have any thoughts for finding more savvy ideas on natural health or related topics? I would most appreciate it!

Baked apple fritters. The picture is deceiving. out of the oven came lemon flavored apples slightly over cooked on the bottom. mostly pale in color and not resembling the dough consistency as shown in the picture. really disappointing. I added and egg, 1/4 c flour and a few tablespoons of sugar and they improved only slightly. please review this recipe and see if your results are similar or if you just need to update the photo. thank you.
