Gluten-Free Banana Nut Bread

My mom was diagnosed with celiac disease about 8 years ago. We have looked everywhere for delicious recipes that substitute other products for gluten. i was fortunate to come upon this wonderful recipe, which uses only 2 unusual ingredients: GF flour and Xanthan Gum. Even though I CAN eat gluten, I still very much enjoy this delicious banana bread. It is best hot from the oven!

It is super moist, bursting with flavor, and you would never know it was GLUTEN FREE :)))

Plus, it is very low in saturated fat and high in polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fat. It is fairly low carb for a banana bread and it also has 1 gram of sugar PER slice....and they are generous servings!

Low Cal. Plum cake

This Cake was made without any butter. I used none fat sour cream as a substitute. The plums can be replaced with any of your favorite fruits such as peaches, apples, cherries and prunes. Try this with a spoon full of none dairy whipping cream and you will be in heaven.

The Perfect LOW FAT Pumpkin Pie

Love pumpkin pie? Hate the guilt? The preservatives of the store made brands? This is an easy to make and bake pumpkin pie, best of all using fat free milk, egg whites, and low fat pie crust cut the calories and fat more than in half! This tastes great and is excellent with fat free cool whip!!! Feel free to make it full fat if you dare, or add a little bit more spices for more of kick. Great for thanksgiving!! Enjoy!

St. Hildegard's Cookies of Joy


(Recipe reconstructed and adapted from Hildegard's circa 1157 treatise Physica: Liber Simplicis Medicinæ ) These biscuits were first made over 900 years ago by the Christian saint, Hildegard of Bingen. She said that these spice biscuits should be taken t regular intervals to increase joy and positivity! I like to substitute half of the plain flour with spelt flour, and use all organic ingredients.

Basic European Pancakes

I'm calling these "European" Pancakes as opposed to the ones i have come to know as American Pancakes, because mine are thin and about 8" in diameter, instead of small, thick and fluffy.
They are known all over Europe, the French call them Crepe, the Dutch Pannenkoeken and the Austrians and Czech Palatschinken.
They can be sweet or hearty - i add apple slices for my favourites.

Streuselkuchen without yeast

An easy German cake. Traditionally made with fresh yeast, this recipe is without yeast though.

A very easy cake to make, but super popular with my friends (they often ask me to make it).

Impossible Tart

This recipe was given to me by a friend long time ago. It is impossible how easy it is. I tough many kids and even some men to bake this, because it is fool-proof.
The final product will give you a pudding, topped by cake, because the ingredients separate whilst baking! smile
sorry, but I'm not familiar with oz, hence I only added 1 ingredient into the top-box

I remember my grandmother making this every Christmas. Now, I continue the tradition. Even with the cup of butter, each slice of this nutroll only has 112 calories!

Grandma's German cheesecake with quark and berries

A recipe from http://www.grouprecipes.com/5941/grandmas-
german-cheesecake.html# (I have completely copied the ingredients, except for the added fruit on top). Very similar to the one my mother-in-law makes, but even lighter. Compared to North American cheesecake, this one has a lighter taste and much, much less fat and calories! Sprinkle with seasonal fruit.
