    Banishing trans fats They`ll kill you!

    This cookbook is in progress I`m removing the trans fat from my recipes, and replacing with monounsaturated (the preferred one), and polyunsaturated (neutral) fats. YES kill you! Scientists at Harvard's School of Public Health estimate that trans fats contribute to as many as 30,000 cardiovascular deaths each year. What is it? Trans fat is made when hydrogen is added to vegetable oil — a process invented in the late 19th century to help lengthen the shelf life of food products. The process of hydrogenation increases the saturated-fat content. It's more harmful than other types of fat in your diet. Partially hydrogenated oil raises the bad blood cholesterol (LDL) while lowering the good cholesterol (HDL),. "It's even worse than saturated fat because it's introducing something unnatural into the body. There's no reason to have trans fats in food. They're unnecessary, artificial, and bad." All oils contain saturated (the bad one), monounsaturated (the preferred one), and polyunsaturated (neutral) fats in varying percentages. Moderate use of oils higher in monounsaturated and lower in saturated fats is a way to reduce the risk of heart disease. Choose foods lower in fat whenever possible, to keep your daily intake below 30 percent of calories. Choose foods lower in saturated fat to reduce risk of heart disease. Unless you have a personal preference or a food allergy, the specific type of oil isn't as important as the amounts of total fat and saturated fat present. The best is switching to an unsaturated fat, which helps lower cholesterol. Look for monounsaturated or polyunsaturated fats on the label, which indicate healthier oils such as olive, sunflower and soybean. Read your labels to avoid trans-fats. Recognizing a product contains trans fat, if the ingredient list has "partially hydrogenated vegetable oil," "hydrogenated vegetable oil" or "vegetable shortening," the food contains trans fat. According to the Food and Drug Administration, trans fat can be found in products like cookies, crackers, vegetable shortenings, some margarine's, snack foods. Just look for the phrase "partially hydrogenated oil" on the label. On Jan. 1, 2006, all food manufacturers were required to label trans fat in their products. A couple helpful sights. The Harvard School of Public Health American Heart Association Good Health to all.

Think ahead of color scheme and where you want to place which colors. You can simply this recipe by just using a box mix according to it's directions and skip the glazes. I used these glazes to enhance the ice cream flavor.

    Enjoyed at Christmas and Easter. I make this for friends and family to take home on Easter. Some likes lots of poppy seed filling and others request a little. It's hard to please everyone with one roll so I make a bunch. Depending on how dry your flour is you may need more or less water. You can make the dough the day before let raise one hour punch down then refrigerate over night. Then bring to room temp. Let rise 1 hour. Posted pictures on March,05 Alternate way to make dough in the food processor is the 1st picture, 2 is kneading in processor with eggs and wet ingredients, 3rd is the proof, 4th is 3 batches of dough one as recipe calls for,one is with 1 cup of rye and the third is with one cup of wheat flour(which made a drier dough). 5th picture dough rolled out with filling on it. 6th is rolling up. 7th Placed in loaf pans. 8th is egg washed and topped with dry poppy seeds. 9th baked. EASTER 2006-made dough in Bread Machine and it came out beautiful. The rest is really nice in the draft free and temp controlled machine.

    This is quick and easy! Chilling makes handling these easier. Option for a lemon glazed cookie--all you have to do is in place of the water use the frozen lemon concentrate for a real tart cookie and/or use lemon cake mix. Then mix a bunch of powdered sugar with the frozen lemon contentrate thats at room temperature for a nice tart icing! Pictures uploaded here on Nov 27 using carrot cake mix, 1/4 cup coconut, 1/4 cup chopped nuts then sprinkled with cinnamon sugar before and after baking. Dec 10 used chocolate cake mix and chocolate mint chips.
