Hi Ms. Bella -

I liked your post because, like you, I have about 300 cookbooks and STILL cannot seem to find any decent low-fat/low-cal baking recipes that satisfy those cravings. I did find a book called "Small Batch Baking" by Debbie Maugans Nakos that is great for just baking a couple of cupcakes or 4-6 cookies at a time. Her recipes are great, very satisfying, but don't leave you with a stack of leftover cookies and cakes calling your name!

Hi Ladies! Thanks for the welcome! So heres my hints. I come from a large family and have 2 boys that can clean out a fully stocked fridge in an hour. And not gain an ounce dern kids anyway :)
What I do is fix a normal sized meal and then portion it out into single serve size freezer safe containers. That way fiance has meals to take to work and I have a little bit of control. Another thing I do is bake 6 cookies at a time and freeze the rest of the dough. Bake mini loaves of bread for the 2 of us and split one loaf per meal.
I don't worry about baking lowfat because I can't find good lowfat recipes. (I only have 350 cookbooks) So I just try to use good protion control and 6" plates.

Good luck ladies.
Hugs~
Bella

I love to bake too..unfortunately for my waist line it is not the low fat variety...I would love tips on lightening up where my family will actually eat it and not feel it is like sawdust...

Hey y'all~~

I have trained as an artisan baker and pastry chef and LOVE to bake! However my fiance and I are both trying to get back in to shape and lose just a little weight.
Hoping to meet more bakers and to swap recipes with!
