    I want to try yeast breads but I'm nervous. I haven't used yeast often and then I made PW's cinnamon buns for Christmas morning breakfast and had to use it for that and it turned out great.
    Really, try my naan bread. I make it almost every week!

    I always use butter because my daughter's allergy to modified soy oil prevents me from using the alternatives. All the lite-stuff is silly. It's just butter, don't use a ton and add in some yogurt. Easy-peasy no need for franken food.

    I like honey and I like the taste of agave syrup, but usually they are too expensive for my taste when dark Karo will do.

    As far as handling the meat goes. . . I was vegetarian for 17 years. But when I fell off that wagon I must have bumped my head hard because it doesn't phase me in the least if I am ethically ok with how it was procured. Although, my 1st foray with a T-day turkey shook me to the core and I used gloves. (still do in fact.)

    Laurie, make this and tell us about it.

    I just want to punch the cook in the face:

    Left brain, right brain, pug brain.: Healthy chocolate chip cookie pie.

    ugh. hope it's as rich as she thinks it is!

    Ew it has DATES in it! Gross!!! (This is also why I bake...I'm so fussy, it's great to get final decision-making power over all the ingredients.)

    Yay for butter. Love butter. About margarine....If flies won't touch it, why should we?

    Yes, I usually reduce the butter and substitute yogurt for the rest. But I use real butter.

    I use honey & agave too. I am taking a baking class in late May that's all about ratios so I can better understand how to substitute ingredients that have different properties/textures, like honey for sugar, etc. Honey's just healthier. Also after combing the web for ages I think I finally found a site with the formula to add wheat germ & flax into recipes without affecting flavor or texture. Just trying to make my regular stuff healthier.

    I like eating meat, just not touching it. I might want to start making sauces myself, for my husband to use, I might enjoy that too. I'm not sure WHEN I would do that, given the job, kids, baking, blogging, yoga, photography class, needing-to-relax-sometimes schedule I already have going.

    I put ground flaxseed in my oatmeal every morning. It tastes good - kind of nutty but not too much - and it's great for the digestion.

    Yep, I want to get flax and wheat germ into more of our food. I used to have to give to to Nathaniel when he was a baby to make him poop!

    Good, so you've used flax before and know it needs to be ground to get the benefits! Lots of people don't know that. There's my PSA for the day, y'all. Ground flaxseed, not whole. A coworker of mine was using whole flax and it made her super constipated!!!!
