How to Remake your Old Favourite Holiday Recipes - December 2019

By Shannon Bliss

Simple tips on how to remake your old favourite recipes…just in time for Thanksgivin

 

This is simpler than you would think…

When I look at any recipe I look for good healthy ingredients.

 

If a recipe calls for margarine I substitute it for butter and if it calls for vegetable oil, I switch that to olive or coconut oil. Depending on what flavour I’m trying to achieve.

 

So here is a quick list of substitutes:

 

Margarine – butter

Vegetable oil – olive or coconut oil

Lard or shortening - butter

White flour – whole wheat, spelt, quinoa…there are many to choose from now, just check the consistency of them…sometimes a blend is best.

Quick oats – large slow oats or quinoa flakes

Sugar – raw cane sugar (this can safely be cut in half)

Sweeteners (Yuk – chemicals) – better to use sugar…don’t let the ads fool you!

Corn syrup (so bad!) – Agave nectar, maple syrup, applesauce

Table salt – sea salt

Milk (some people have a hard time with lactose) – try almond milk

 

Check to make sure your baking powder and soda does not have an aluminum base – you want to be able to remember how to bake later in life!

 

Ground beef – ground turkey (I just made a shepherd’s pie with turkey – delicious!)

 

Remember it always tastes better from scratch…and your family will be healthier!

If you have a recipe that you want reworked, send it to Shannon  and I’ll see what I can do.

 

Happy cooking!

Help for aging bones
It's never too late to begin! Recent studies involving mature men and women found that regular weight training improved hip-bone density. Weight bearing exercises significantly improved bone strength, reducing the risk for falls and fractures in later life.

Strong Core and Quads!
Now that autumn and all it holds is upon us, we may find that we do not have as much time to go the gym or get outside and exercise as often as we should. By strengthening the Quadriceps (the largest muscle in the body) we can build lean muscle mass thus helping to increase metabolism and of course they will look good enough for short shorts!!....

Recipe
Crispy Baked Asian Blackberry Chicken Wings
Category: Main Meals
Description: There are few occasions when I’d argue that “baked” rules over “deep-fried.” But believe it or not, a piping hot oven—and not a vat of bubbling oil—is the secret to the crispiest, crackliest chicken wings. And with just five ingredients and 50 minutes, you’ll be licking your fingers clean for every last taste of these Crispy Baked Asian Chicken Wings. Sound too good to be true?
I consider myself a bit of a wing connoisseur. Buffalo, chipotle, teriyaki, barbecue—you name it, I’ve winged it. While it’s hard to beat basic butter and hot sauce, I’ve turned to my favorite hoisin and blackberry jam glaze (of mini-meatball fame) to add a sweet and tangy twist to each crunchy bite. I guarantee these wings will fly off the plate. (You had to know that was coming…)

Much like spinach, raisins, apples, plums and grapes, blackberries are rich in bioflavonoids and Vitamin C, but other nutritional benefits include a very low sodium count and having only 62 calories to a cup. The dark blue colour ensures blackberries have one of the highest antioxidant levels of all fruits.

In Canada, blackberries are seasonal fruits and the availability of a fresh batch depends on whether you live in the North or the South. They make great jams.
