Asian Ginger Dressing
This salad dressing turned out fabulously! I took other reviewer's suggestions and cut the amount of soy sauce in half. I also used 1/4 cup sesame oil and the rest canola oil. Rather than using honey, I used a tbsp of splenda. And I didn't have fresh ginger, so I used ground ginger powder and eyed the amount. I also added some red pepper flakes, although I'm not sure this made a lot of difference. My husband raved about it!

Bread Machine Pizza Dough
We love this dough! It's become a once-a-week event now to do homemade pizza. I've experimented using varying proportions of whole wheat and white flour, and I can't tell the difference, so I usually use all whole wheat flour now. I double the recipe to make two large pizzas. The doubling is almost more than my bread machine can handle though, and I've found I have to add the ingredients to the bread machine in layers and mix it up just a little before starting the dough cycle. And if it rises for too long, it will push the lid of the bread machine open! We roll the crust thin, and my husband's new trick is to put a layer of honey around the edges and roll the crust up (since the crust hangs off the side of the pizza stone anyway). He says it's dinner and dessert in one!

Health Nut Blueberry Muffins
These muffins turned out fabulously! I had to make some changes since I didn't have oat bran or wheat germ. Instead, I used 1 cup whole wheat flour and 3/4 cup quick oats. I also substituted unsweetened applesauce for the banana based on other reviews (a little more than 1/4 cup), and 1/2 cup brown sugar plus 1/4 cup splenda in place of the white sugar. I didn't have buttermilk, so I used 1/2 cup fat-free milk plus 1/2 cup low-fat sour cream. And to top it off, I used dark chocolate chips instead of blueberries! (Hey, I saved enough calories elsewhere, right?) I baked them for 17 minutes, and they were GREAT! Moist and soft - way better than any of the other healthy muffin recipes I've tried!
