Carrot Patties
We love this recipe but it's way too much sodium for my husband who has congestive heart failure. Most bread crumbs are also too high in sodium. I use 1/4 c. cracker meal instead of the crumbs, and a Mrs. Dash seasoning such as Lemon Pepper or Herbs and Garlic. I also use matchstick carrots; sometimes I use them "as is" which makes an interesting patty. I also give them a whirl in my food processor if I want to avoid the "haystack" look. AND they make a great veggie burger on a whole grain bun! My 3 and 5 year-old grandkids ate and loved them.

Caramelized Baked Chicken
5 stars! I used skinned turkey thighs, about 2/3 lbs. each. We're on a sodium restricted diet so I used 1/2 c. low sodium soy sauce and 1/4 cup Bellino Balsamic Vinegar table and basting sauce which has zero sodium. I will cut back on the honey next time. The glaze made a delicious gravy to pour on the brown rice I made to serve with the turkey. I also basted the thighs about 4 times during baking them for a little over an hour; they were very tender and tasty.
