I'm like Martiet. I make personal substitutions like the whole wheat flour and olive oil. I also often substitute applesauce or banana puree for the fat in sweet baked goods. I like to use coconut oil in place of crisco even though it is a saturated fat because it has other health benefits. If you're interested I can give you a link or two.

Welcome! I don't usually use "converted recipes", but make personal substitutions. For instance, I'll cut in 1/2 whole wheat flour, or use olive oil instead of other fats (especially aviod crisco & lard). I've hardly been privilaged to watch any cooking shows, most of my intake is through cookbooks and printed recipes-and my mil.

Have you watched The Nealy's (I'm not sure how to spell their name..) They've got good cooking that isn't as fatty as Paula Dean. You might look into it. Good luck. And, welcome!

Hi, I'm Joanne originally from NJ but moved to FL 14 years ago. I cook most all meals from scratch...I dont consider boxed mixes scratch cooking. In the past I have cooked a lot of country style recipes...Paula Deen is my favorite. She is probably the reason for my weight gain. Does anyone have any country cooking recipes converted to healthy versions? If so I would love to have some. Thanks. Looking forward to hearing from y'all. Joanne emoticon
