Very Good 4.8/5
(5 ratings)

This is how I make chai when I need something warm that makes me feel enveloped in comfort without the added calories of my former addiction: hot chocolate. It's spicier (in a warming way that is very soothing) and lighter in taste than any chai from a coffee shop. The method is also quite authentic. If you can, make sure to use fresh, whole cardamom pods, whole cloves, and freshly ground black pepper. You can also add a couple of drops of vanilla extract or use a very small amount of fresh ginger. The recipe is calculated with four teaspoons of sugar, but it is completely up to you.

Raspberry-Lemon Scones
Very Good 4.0/5
(50 ratings)

Scones are perfect for weekend house guests, hostess gifts, or picnics. Traditionally made with loads of butter and cream, mine use far less butter--and wheat flour.

Very Good 4.7/5

This is inspired by Starbucks' low fat chocolate chip banana bread and is great with coffee! Although many of the ingredients are lower fat, the bread comes out very moist!

I like to divide this into snack size bags for a quick, ready-to-go snack on the run. Keeps me from hitting the fast food! This has less fat & sodium than a bag of chips from the vending machine at work. :)
