These cookies are plump and moist.

I was looking for a quick tasty fruit drink and got very bored of juice. The sorbet in this makes it really refreshing.

These are really tasty, although different from the usual marshmallow treats. They hold together very well, but remained a bit too sticky after cooling. Try keeping them in the refrigerator. I found this recipe at

Recipe #128860

These nutritious muffins are packed with flavour, and satisfy the hungry kid, spouse and baker in you.

Recipe #71654

An attempt to get some more vegetables into my kids. I've made these with various savory seasonings, (i.e., salt, pepper, oregano, thyme, rosemary). But this recipe is for the sweet version.

A lighter, lower fat version of quesadillas. Makes a nice lunch, supper or can be used as an appetizer. Please feel free to adjust the spices to match your own tastes...

This recipe was recommended to me by my nutritionist. The sweetness and crunch of the granola and the tanginess of the raisins compliment each other wonderfully. My friends and family simply cannot stop eating it...I usually make a double batch.

I am a hopeless "dump cook" and my family loves granola, so today I threw this together. Worked out VERY well!

Recipe #88338

This recipe is 2 points per serving. It's really good, tastes like oatmeal raisin cookies. It turns out almost like granola bars.

Recipe #85671

Now that the word is out that chocolate is good for you (BUT only if not mixed with milk) why not have it for breakfast? This makes a nice change of pace from plain oatmeal. Karl did not think this was sweet enough, but when he sprinkled a little brown sugar over he was happy. Serve with ricemilk or soymilk to get the full advantage of those cocoa flavinoids.

An interesting sounding whole foods breakfast. Particularly if you grind your own wheat, it could be nice to try. I have amended the salt amounts based on reviews.

Recipe #76026

Well, I was in a mood for chocolate today and oats and milk as well, so this recipe was just born in seconds when gazing at these three ingredients in my little kitchen! Hope you enjoy it!

This is the recipe for the original rice krispies treats squares...It never fails! Plus, it is a great way to use up a box of cereal! For best results, use fresh marshmallows. I have replaced the butter once with Mott's Healthy Baking butter or oil substitute (it was basically an unsweetened apple sauce) and they still turned out great!

Great for brown-bagging. I've actually had this for breakfast as well!

A Mexican version of Sloppy Joes! This is a delicious change from traditional Sloppy Joes and Burritos. Kids love them!
