Delish Coconut Muffins
Overall - a tasty alternative to those avoiding wheat/canola oil in their cooking. We have cut out processed wheat in our diet as it packs on the pounds and try to limit our sugar intake, so baking a treat becomes a challenge. Coconut oil (in coconut milk) is a good fat that burns bad fat, so this makes this a bonus for baking! We did use sweetened coconut (on hand and needed to be used up), decreased salt to 1/2 tsp of salt and sprinkled on "whey low" - a natural sugar alternative that tastes like sugar, but low on glycemic index. Added 3 chocolate chips in about 1/4 of the mini muffin cups (YUM!) for an extra special treat. They slid right out of the silicone cups. I forgot they wouldn't rise, so I filled the cups 2/3 and they came out short, and may have even fallen. Next time I will fill the cups all the way. This recipe is a great base to start with, though good on its own. We will be making these again!

Easy Delicious Old Fashioned Coleslaw Dressing
Made a few substitutions (trying to avoid sugar/milk) and it came out great! Substituted 1/2 cup rice dream+tbsp butter milk blend powder for the 1/4c milk&1/4c buttermilk. No white vinegar - used apple cider vinegar instead which gave it a sweetness - no sugar needed. 1/2c mayo instead of a salad dressing. Dill pickle juice makes this - no salt needed. Put this over broccoli slaw and my family loved it! P.S. my husband hate when I used substitutions for "real food" ie.. milk, sugar ect. He didn't even notice!

Bananas Foster II
OH MY Amazing! We LOVE this recipe and it is SO easy!! My husband is very particular about what he considers 5 stars, and he thinks this is better than any version he's had in any restaurant. We use Kilo Kai Rum, which is so good you could do shots all on its own (though we don't.) Didn't have any dark brown sugar, so we substitute with light brown sugar. Beware - this desert can be addictive.
