Good Morning Muffins

Muffins, widely thought of as “health food,” are often a fat and calorie trap for dieters. Some have as many as 250 calories in a single serving, and a considerable amount of fat. But there are several things you can do to cut fat from your muffin recipes. Use 2 egg whites or 1/4 cup fat-free egg substitute instead of each whole egg. Replace whole …

Whole-Wheat Pancakes with Pear Sauce

A spritz of no-stick spray adds only 2 calories and just a trace of fat to this recipe. Compare that with the tablespoon of butter you would use to grease the griddle. Butter contains 102 calories and 11.5 grams of fat per serving. You can make a really nice, low-fat sauce for all sorts of pancakes and waffles by cooking pears with pear nectar. For …

Melissa's Trifle

Tips: I prefer using the augustifolias in cooking because they are sweeter and more delicate. The lavandins are much harsher, resinous and can be causing the ‘soapy’ aftertaste many people notice! In truth, lavandins (Provence, Grosso, etc.) are a more recent development and were not intended as a culinary herb. They have their fans, of course. But traditionally, true lavender is the basis for lavender …

Recipes: Bourban Balls, Ginger Snaps, Homemade Salad Dressing

‘Tis the season when remembering overcomes our thoughts and lavish meals fill the frig with leftovers. Though I prefer sunny lunches of garlic breadsticks dipped in a bowl of sauce straight from the Prego jar ( Diced Onion and Garlic’s my favorite), there are days when I have to do more.
