This is a very basic tuna salad to use for sandwiches or to top a green salad. Milk replaces part of the mayo to reduce the fat and sodium content slightly. We like a lot of green onion, but you can add more celery to give it body and 'crunch' if you want.

Silky Smooth White Icing
Very Good 4.2/5
(35 ratings)

Those who know me well will say that I am not a snob--except for when it comes to icing. I want the real stuff! To me cakes are ruined with fake whippy icings made with shortening.

Whole Wheat Pumpkin Spice Pancakes
Very Good 4.4/5
(129 ratings)

These moist pancakes are lightly spiced for the palate of my young child. If you like a bit more pizzazz, you can increase the spices or add others. Cinnamon and pumpkin pie spice both work nicely here.

Chickpea flour keeps these pancakes low-gi and the assortment of ingredients on hand makes them yummy! Nice to add to any meal instead of other heavy carb options. These are filling!

No eggs and no milk in this recipe. Feel free to replace Splenda with another sweetener. One tablespoon of sugar, honey or molasses is required and cannot be replaced.

I adapted this recipe from several others and the results are quite nice. I will experiment by reducing the butter to 2 Tablespoons or using canola oil and then topping up with apple sauce but I haven't tried this yet. At least a tablespoon of honey or sugar is required to raise the yeast in the dough, do not eliminate this ingredient.

Once a month the ladies I run with get together to do some bigger-batch, healthy cooking of food that we can share. This recipe has less fat and less sugar than most we found. Freeze some, unbaked, in foil pans for quick meals later.

Once a month I get together with the friends I run with to do some healthy, bigger-batch cooking. The second version of this recipe yields three regular-sized loaves or 10 mini loaves. We made a mixture of both. Bake minis for 45 minutes and regulars for one hour. Place minis onto a cookie sheet for easy handling in and out of the oven. These loaves are light, fluffy and very moist, a nice surprise for a whole wheat recipe. FYI, The big-batch version was too much batter for my counter-top mixer; we mixed it by hand. RB1 added dark chocolate chips to some of the mini loaves by hand after we filled the pans.
