I also bake at least once a week. I've joined several online baking groups for bloggers and have one that includes a challenge for every week, and several others that are once or twice a month. And I don't modify them. honestly I'm not doing well w/the weight loss since joining these groups, and have gained some back. I've got to amp up the exercise if I'm going to continue this!

I've never made cottage cheese bread, but Dorie Greenspan (author of the AMAZING Baking from My Home to Yours) has a recipe for Cottage cheese "pufflets" which are supposed to be like a cottage cheese dough for turnovers. I didn't really make them how I was supposed to (for one of my baking groups: Tuesdays with Dorie) but I'm going to try them again this week but as mini tart shells formed in mini muffin cups.

So far I've made brownies and a "wedding cake" (aka white cake w/white icing)for my husband's birthday.

I try to bake once a week. Honestly there are many recipes that I really don't modify. I just eat a much smaller portion. The other day I made cottage cheese bread. Yumm.

Sarah-looks delicious! All of it!

So I ended up modifying a Honey Rhubarb cake, and it turned out pretty darn good! It was 350 calories, but I got it down to 241 by using Splenda, egg beaters, and applesauce instead of the sugar, eggs, and oil called for. I also used sugar-free cake mix (yeah, it was a cheaty type recipe...) and reduced the sugar pretty drastically. My SIL was over with her kids, and her son wanted thirds, so I'd say it went over well!

Debbie-did you post the recipe for the PB oatmeal bars anywhere? They sound yummy!

I made peanut butter oatmeal bars, using stevia for the white sugar, whole wheat pastry flour for the flour, so it is whole grain, yummy!

Yum!!

I tried some zucchini bread using a Spark recipe that turned out really good-my husband even liked it, and he's not a big veggie fan.

Never had rhubarb. However the pear-raspberry crisp sounds good.

I have blueberries and zucchini that I need to use this weekend. I'm planning on some muffins and bread. This will be my first time to make zucchini bread.

I agree that fall does bring out the urge to bake. I enjoy the fall breads-- emoticon

Something about fall just makes me want to BAKE!!! Not that i ever really need an excuse. Since I'm trying really hard to stay on task, I'm trying to modify some dessert recipes. I tried out a Pear-Raspberry Crisp last weekend, which was delicious, but the cals were still pretty high-276 per serving.

This weekend, I have my eye on a Honey Rhubarb Cake. Made as instructed, it has 250 calories per serving, but I'm thinking I can shave a good 50 off of there, without sacrificing taste. We'll see....
