Diabetic Baking: French Bread, Whole Wheat Bread, and Stuffing Bread. Apple Crumble Pie, Cinimon Rolls, Short Bread, Lemon Magraine Pie, Chocolate Pie, Ninimo Bars, Strawberry Dessert, Mince Meat Tarts, Butterscotch Squares, and Chocolate Chip Cookies.

Roasted Yam and Kale Salad
I just made this and my family didn't wait for it to cool. My 7 yr old son loved the kale and my husband asked for a second helping. I added some pre-cooked roast chicken slices to even out a low cam dinner. I can see some people enjoying bacon, but for us that would be too much fat for this light salad.

Aunty Laura's Shortbread
Love this recipe and have used it many times. It says fruit sugar, it is also called Rapid Disolving Sugar. For a twist here's a few things I've tried. 1) add 2 tsp vanilla. 2) add mini semi or dark chocolate chips or mint chocolate chips. 3) before baking decorate with, coloured sugar, chocolate chips, sprinkles, dried fruit or nuts(pecan, walnuts etc). 4) if cooking in a pan, try scoring the dough before cooking in the shapes of the bars you want. Making a large amount? Try spreading if to fill a cookie sheet. Perfect thickens and flat on both sides. The scoring can make them break apart with the tap of a knife on the line. 5) make these often? Try a shortbread Mold. Lee Valley Tools has one for around $40 CAN with the traditional thistle pattern.

Butterhorn Rolls
These are great. If you're looking for fancy savory/sweet rolls. Try changing butter with garlic butter and add a sprinkle of (romano or parmasian) cheese. Or add organo and cheddar(grated). To go with a beef roast try rosemary and thyme. For a kid's party or party foods try adding cheddar and hot dogs. This is a really great basic recipe. Experiment with fillings. My hubby wants me to come up with a breakfast roll a diabetic can have. I'm thinking an omelette filling.
