You should have no problems using the flour, baking powder and milk of your choice (aluminum free baking powder was mentioned only because sometimes baked goods have a "tinny" taste and if you've ever experienced that it's because the baking powder was not aluminum free).

Using whole wheat flour, you may need to increase your milk a little - up to 3 Tablespoons - but do it it a Tablespoon-full at a time, stir, and if needed, add a second, stir... etc.

Temperature is 350 degrees. Butter is 1/3 cup.

Hope this helps!

And thanks for posting the tomato-basil soup to SparkRecipes! I harvested all the remaining basil on my plants because it doesn't do well in cool weather, & I need to decide how to use it all. I'll be trying out that recipe soon!

Oooh, how exciting, another pumpkin soup to try! I just made one myself today--Thai peanut flavors with pumpkin, which was super-delicious. Here's my review.

I know I posted another recipe to review earlier this month, but I made a pumpkin soup for dinner this evening that was too good not to share. The recipe I worked off of is in Italian, so I translated it (along with my adjustments) and put it directly in my blog. Pumpkin lovers NEED to try this!

Has anyone tried this Simple Prune, Banana and Cranberry Loaf with normal wholewheat flour, baking powder and milk? And did anyone convert the tempterature and other measures to regular American stuff? I'm going to try it but I wonder if anyone else has tried it

Yay! One thing about the arrival of cold weather: it's SO inviting to cook & bake.

One new dish I'll try this month is Thai-Inspired Pumpkin-Peanut Soup:

recipes.sparkpeople.com/recipe-detai

asp?recipe=155509


I don't have that Thai flavored peanut butter (didn't know such a thing existed!), but it won't be hard to add the garlic, hot pepper, & ginger.

This is a fun way to try new healthy recipes and to get ideas by seeing what everyone else tried. You are all welcome to participate (or lurk!). We used to do this every couple weeks, but I've decided to try a monthly format.

Step 1 - Pick and post a recipe!
This can be a recipe from an online source, a cook book, or a magazine. Post the link here or if you are reproducing it from a paper source, do that here. The general idea is to try something new. This round can be any recipe you like. In other rounds we may do categories (beef, soup, dessert, etc.) Here are some great websites to browse...
www.sparkrecipes.com
ww-recipes.net/
www.3fatchicks.com/diet-recipes/
www.skinnytaste.com/
www.cookinglight.com/

Step 2 - Make recipe and EAT!! emoticon
My favorite step by far! This step will also include some prep work for your review. Ask your family (if applicable) what they thought of the recipe. Note any changes that you made or would make if you were to prepare the recipe again. Maybe even snap a pic of your delicious dish.

Step 3 - Review!
On your sparkpeople blog, review your recipe. Include a link to your recipe for folks who aren't playing the game. Post the picture if you took one. Describe any changes you made or would make if you made it again. Was it a hit with the kids? Would the leftovers make a great lunch? Maybe it was a flop and you ended up throwing it all out. You get the gist. Come back to this thread and post a link to your blog so we all can "Ooooh and Aaaah" over your recipe! If the website that you got the recipe from has reviews, comment there so that even more folks can benefit from your awesomeness.

Step 4 - Read and comment on others' blogs. A big part of this challenge is getting ideas from each other. "My family would devour that!" or "I've always been curious about quinoa, and that recipe looks amazing!" You never know, you might stumble across your new favorite recipe!


The idea is to post a recipe, make, and review in November. Then I will start a new thread for December and we will start all over! You may have so much fun that you do several recipes in November. Have at it!!

Let's have fun trying new recipes! If you have any questions, be sure to ask! You can ask here or sparkmail me.
