    I love apples, Gala and Granny Smith are my two favorite. You can't catch them on sale very often and that's the only time I buy them. So, this pie is pretty special. It's also pretty special because it's a diabetic pie. The Splenda is interchangeable with sugar if you are making it for a sugar-tolerant person. To kick it up a notch (even for diabetics) drizzle with caramel sauce or serve a la mode! (NOTE TO MY DIABETIC FRIENDS: I'm still working on a sugar-free caramel ice cream topping.)

    Recipe #151531

    I have a recipe here posted for Cherry Cola Apples, but I have also found one that I like just as much. This recipe uses diet cola, but are strawberry-flavored. They're different for sure, but I thought they were delicious. I'm always looking for different ways to use anything that can be used in a diabetic diet. This one came from Lifescan, which is the company that produces my blood sugar monitor.

    Recipe #204999

    I got this recipe from my Cooking Light friends though this isn't exactly a light recipe! But it's oh so good!

    Recipe #227904

    This quick recipe came from my sister-in-law. We found it works better to fold the crescent rolls in half, making a square rather than a triangle (using 2 roll sections to make one square).

    Recipe #153013

    Southern Living. This makes for a delicious lunch. Serve with salad and tall glass of lemonade. Yummy.

    Recipe #133690

    From Gooseberry Patch Mom's Favorite Recipes.

    Recipe #144851

    From Taste of Home. I cut this recipe into fourths and five of us ate it Christmas morning with leftovers. I used Muenster cheese and cut it very small. All of us (including 2 picky kids) really liked it.

    Recipe #274722

    To me, ham has too much salt. I didn't get it very often because of that. After doing a search on the internet to see if there was a way to take some of the salt out of a ham, I found a suggestion on the Morton Salt site. I have done this method three times since finding their suggestion. This method really does work. It doesn't take all of the salt out of a ham, but it takes a lot of it out. It makes the ham taste much better. It even works on Spiral Cut hams. This is for cut hams. I don't know if this will work on a whole ham. This needs to be done 24 hours before cooking the ham. Cooking time is the time it takes to soak the ham. I had to put in specific sizes of ingredients so I put the size/amount as a suggestion. You might need more water, depending on the size of ham and pot you are using.

    Recipe #222670

    Pancakes that are light as air.

    Recipe #90063

    I found this recipe in the 1994 Preventions Cooking for Good Health Cookbook. I am following WW and this is a wonderful low fat/calorie substitute for Deviled Eggs.

    Recipe #180173

    This is just another one of my Grandmother's many hidden talents. (Homemade Noodles) She made all of her food from scratch. It was not only cheaper at the time, but better for you, according to her.

    Recipe #213430

    A wonderful hearty steak soup that is perfect on a cold fall evening! Directions are given for both pressure cooker and conventional stovetop methods!This soup takes time to prepare, but the end result is worth it! From "Steak Lover's Cookbook" by William Rice.

    Recipe #43255

    This ice cream has a spirited coolness and velvety smoothness. This recipe doesn't require an ice cream maker. Cook time is freeze time.

    Recipe #242176

    Got this recipe from a Louisville morning show showcasing Churchill Downs Chef Gil Logan. I passed the recipe on to Alan (my best friend from college) and he and I made them one night. I couldn't have whiskey or beer in the dorm, so I got everything else. They are good, but very strong at first. We used Sweet Baby Ray's and Tabasco for the hot sauce, Jim Beam and Budweiser for the booze. These are commonly used as appetizers, but we served them with rice and a broccoli casserole.

    Recipe #206619

    Mostly inspired from Recipe #172377, this is a mixture of champ and colcannon recipes that I have tried, and lightened up.

    Recipe #263174

    These sandwiches are so good. Everyone gobbles them up.

    Recipe #48051

    I posted a few of my Mom's recipes in the community forum My Mom's best Meal and was asked by Bergy to posted them on Zaar. I had to measure out the ingredients to get the amounts because my Mom "eyed" everything. I didn't include the time it takes for me to prepare the noddles or to roll them out and the rest of the times may be off a little as well because i haven't timed how long it takes for the dish to re heat for serving.
