Slightly crispy, deliciously caramel-flavoured and extraordinarily beautiful cut-out sugar cookies, made in a small batch for that special someone, are a hit in any goody basket! Frost with royal icing if you'd like, these are not too sweet alone.

Another lightened version of carrot cake, made moist with vanilla yogurt, apple butter, pineapple and buttermilk for a great tangy dessert that cries out for a cup of tea. The carrots are pureed rather than grated in this version.

A tasty, elegant cheesecake in the Italian style. Nice and light, the berries are a great topping addition but so are sliced peaches, a lemon sauce or chocolate!

No one will ever know that the secret ingredient that makes these brownies virtually cholesterol free and low fat is black beans. Moist and dense, you'll never have to make package brownies again. Walnuts increase the calories to 112. The following recipe from Stealth Health: How To Sneak Nutrition Painlessly Into Your Diet, ©1998 by Evelyn Tribole, MS, RD was contributed by Marilyn Helton.

Good Ham Bean Soup
Very Good 4.3/5
(54 ratings)

Time to Pick a Bone
You can make a good ham and bean soup using just cubes of ham alone, but to get the best flavor you should use a ham bone. You can get your ham bone from the butcher, since they will often give them away or sell them very cheaply, or you can use a leftover bone from a ham that you have served for dinner.

If you are making a ham for dinner, then any leftover ham can be used in the soup as well. In fact, the best ham and bean soup recipes use both ham bones as well as cubes of ham.
